Pavel Roskin <address@hidden> described the package as follows:
Other License: The driver is licenses under Mozilla Public License version 1.1
and GPL version 2, just like other PCMCIA drivers for Linux.
Package: The Linux orinoco driver
System name: orinoco
The Linux orinoco driver is a driver for 802.11b wireless cards using Agere
(Lucent), Symbol and Intersil firmware on Prism and compatible chipsets. This
driver is included in the Linux kernel since 2.4.3 and pcmcia-cs package since
3.1.30. Based on older wvlan_cs and wavelan_cs drivers, the orinoco driver was
created as a clean reimplementation by David Gibson and Jean Tourrilhes.
Current versions of the driver can be found here:
Unlike other projects for Prism chipsets (such as HostAP and linux-wlan-ng),
Orinoco aims to support as much hardware as possible. It's simple, easy to
hack and it's already in the kernel.
Other Software Required:
Linux kernel 2.4.x and newer with Wireless Extensions enabled.
David Gibson has publicly admitted that he is too busy to work on the project
and that a CVS repository is needed. Opening this project on Savannah
shouldn't be considered a fork. In fact, it's an attempt to avoid fork,
demanded and already attempted by developers who cannot get their code to the
project. David Gibson won't be excluded from the project. He is free to
participate, and I promise to give him write access to the repository if he
asks for it.
