Fedora Core 2 2.6.5 updates...
Posted 04 February 2005 - 10:24 PM
I've scoured the internet for info on this, but have been unsuccessful, maybe someone here can help. I have two computers here at school one laptop (xp), and a IBM Aptiva AMD 475 with Fedora Core 2 2.6.5, the dorm is equipped with wireless, the laptop is using PCMCIA and the IBM is using USB Belkin Wireless F5D6050. The problem is the IBM (FC2) box has no internet access so I can't use up2date to update the computer, now I know where to get the updates, but don't know which to download. Can someone help me?

To show you how difficult it is with this card, see this thread.
I do not believe that Fedora has a driver for this card yet, at least not on their up2date pages.
The other option is the Atmel Driver.
I aways hate to share these articles with folks, as usb adapters are still a work in progress and very frustrating, such as in this reader's post on the Fedora Forum.

In the meantime, do you have a regular ethernet connection you can use?

Ok, so I have downloaded the FC2 2.6.5 specific rpm for driver loader(which I didn't do last time) but now I'm lacking the utility to open it...what now?

I could not extract them either. But, a quick e-mail may get a response from Belkin, or at least a link to an answer on their web page. I could not find one.
