    Slightly off topic, but have you ever successfully compiled the WiFi driver for the Droid-1? I have successfully rebuilt the Android framework and the kernel, but have not been able to recompile tiwlan_drv.ko and have it load successfully. The closest I have come is being able to do a clean build and then load the module using "insmod". But in that case as soon as I turn on WiFi, the whole system crashes. I have followed a variety of tutorials for building this, but they all seem to be oriented for one of TI's development boards.

    If you have a suggested source code link and any pointers for creating a useable WiFi driver, I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thats another thing I have never touched on. I might look up how that works, just so I can cover more areas.

    Great, and I'll keep following your posts on this. I've been able to successfully rebuild the module for the Broadcom bcm4329 and the Atheros AR6003, but this TI driver seems to have so many variations. I assume it is dependent on other modules (such as sdio drivers), looking at what gets loaded, I can't tell.

    Thanks again

    Saved this info offline for reference.

    I have created my share of training manuals and know the amount of work involved, so Thanks!

    has anyone tried this on opensuse? its definitely my favorite distro and seems to work best on my laptop...
    and is my laptop even up to par to build gingerbread or even ics?
    dual core 2.8 GHz, 4 GB ram, 201 GB for a full linux partition, and what file system is best to use on it? ext3, ext4 or other?

    so would this work the same on opensuse linux distro? and how is linuxmint with driver support? thats always the problem i run into with linux distros, they never have the driver support needed for my laptop, especially one of the most important ones- the wifi driver
    also which desktop do you use? GNOME or KDE?

    I came from using Ubuntu 10.10 LTE, and moved to Linux Mint 12 (w/ GNOME). Wonders of difference. MUCH better, and now, I have NO driver issues. Everything was there right off the bat, and this laptop is only 3 months old.

    I do second this, Mint is much more stable, has much better support for everything. It is also great to build on. It's very fast and just plain works well

    That'll be the one I try then probably later tonight

    btw, how do you use source from other developers (mainly to help build an ics rom) such as this https://github.com/ThePlayground/android_device_moto_sholes
    and how would you go about building a kernel or is that a whole different ballgame here?
