Ubuntu Intrepid (8.10) replacing ath9k by madwifi

I had many problems using the new Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex (8.10). The wifi is unstable. Installed by default is ath9k. This is how to replace this unstable driver by madwifi.


nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
blacklist ath9k
blacklist mac80211
blacklist cfg80211


apt-get install linux-headers-generic (or rt in my case)
svn checkout http://svn.madwifi-project.org/madwifi/trunk madwifi
cd svn/scripts
sh madwifi-unload
sh find-madwifi-modules.sh
cd ..
make install

3) reboot and enjoy

applesmc and pommed

nano /etc/modules
modprobe applesmc

apt-get install pommed
nano /etc/pommed.conf
/etc/init.d/pommed restart
