Building Drivers on baseline images

This section will explain how you can build your own drivers using our baseline images. First, to save image space we have not provided the linux-headers package installed on the image. You can obtain this using apt. So first, determine your debian's kernel image:

root@node1-1:/usr/src/madwifi- dpkg -l| grep image
ii  linux-image-2.6.22-3-686      2.6.22-5                Linux 2.6.22 image on PPro/Celeron/PII/PIII/

Then, proceed to install the kernel headers and kbuild for this package:

apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.22-3-686 linux-kbuild-2.6.22 libc6-dev libc6-i686

Supported external drivers

We support two external sources of new drivers:
