I'm pretending to be a single parent. My better half has gone off on a work assignment to Germany so I'm home alone. Well... As alone as one can be with a small child who won't go to bed until its rabid urge to watch Thundercats has been sated.
So I've made the best use of my time so far by finally getting the right drivers for my wireless card working on OpenSuse 10.3. The problem with my shiny, black HP Pavilion DV6000 is that the Atheros AR5006EG reported using lspci is, in fact, an AR5007EG. So, for those of you with the same problem, I would direct you here, then unpack, make, make install and, once you've done that, then modprobe ath_pci and it works. I've tested it fully and it works with Kismet and aircrack-ng, effortlessly putting the card into monitor mode. A much more elegant solution than using ndiswrapper.
