    'modprobe ath_pci' doesn't work with madwifi

    I made and installed madwifi, but when I try:
    Code:
    modprobe ath_pci
    I get:
    Code:
    FATAL: Error inserting ath_pci (/lib/modules/2.6.22-14-generic/net/ath_pci.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
    What does that mean>

    You need to relink the module with the kernel.

    Code:
    $ sudo depmod -ae
    $ sudo modprobe ath_pci
    This is required especially if you compile a new module with the same name as an old one, in this case ath_pci.ko.
