While connected with my ethernet adapter, I downloaded the madwifi-ng uci.
I copied it from the /tmp directory to my /home/dsl on hda3.
I rebooted with my wireless card installed.
I did a local install of madwifi. I see the /opt/madwifi-ng-2.4.26 directory.
I try to run the madwifi_setup.sh script.
Won't go. Not with sudo. Not as root (sudo su). And of course not as user dsl.
I get a
bash: ./madwifi_setup.sh Permission denied
I tried, as root, to chmod +x madwifi_setup.sh
And get told off that madwifi_setup.sh is a Read-only file system

So how do I tell what version of madwifi is in 3.3.?
And I see a new version of DSL is up. So now I get to download it and learn how to update my Frugal on HD install. I saw something about it in the wiki.....
Still doesn't answer the question about not having permission to run the madwifi_setup.sh, but it seems like that was for the best?

You would run the command like this "sh ./madwifi_setup.sh" - I am thinking that was one I had made up, but forgot to make the script executable.
