Hello all - I'm running kernel v2.4.19-rc3 + preempt patches on an SMP box. When I attempt to compile the latest CVS version with the v14 wireless.h, I get errors to to conflicting definitions of 'struct iw_event' - it is defined both in the v14 wireless.h, and in /usr/include/linux/net/iw_handler.h. To get around this, I reverted to the v13 wireless.h. It compiled fine, but now when I load the driver and attempt to set parameters such as the ESSID, etc, from my wlan init script, I get:
Setting HostAP Options:Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument. Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) :
SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument. Error for wireless request "Set ESSID" (8B1A) :
SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument. Error for wireless request "Set Bit Rate" (8B20) :
SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument.
Finally, I also attempted to test the new v1.4.9 firmware - when I try to load it to RAM I get the following which I imagine is related to the problem above:

Any help is appreciated.
