Description of problem:
Trying to build ipw Intel wifi drivers, I get this error: 

/home/svu/ipw2100-0.49/ieee80211_module.c:54:24: ieee802_11.h: No such
file or directory
In file included from /home/svu/ipw2100-0.49/ieee80211_module.c:55:
/home/svu/ipw2100-0.49/ieee80211.h:48:24: ieee802_11.h: No such file
or directory
In file included from /home/svu/ipw2100-0.49/ieee80211_module.c:55:

In earlier versions of the kernel, the file existed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Take ipw2100 driver from ipw2100.sf.net
2. Try to build it against installed kernel

Actual Results:  The error (mentioned above)

Expected Results:  Driver to be built

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2004-08-05 19:59:19 UTC
It was moved to drivers/net/wireless, IIRC.

Comment 2 Sergey V. Udaltsov 2004-08-05 22:10:06 UTC
Bill - sorry, but it is not in kernel-2.6.*i686.rpm. That is why I
filed this bug. Are you saying I should look at different rpm?

Comment 3 Sergey V. Udaltsov 2004-08-05 22:11:57 UTC
I mean ieee802_11.h, of course. Or did you mean the intel's centrino

Comment 4 Bastien Nocera 2004-08-26 15:09:20 UTC
It's in the FAQ:

Comment 5 Sergey V. Udaltsov 2004-08-26 15:18:19 UTC
Well, I don't mind. That's what I am doing. But is there any special
reason NOT to include this header?

Comment 6 Bastien Nocera 2004-08-26 17:17:39 UTC
The header is in the kernel-source package. I think that the reason
why it's not readily available to drivers is because it's supposed to
be private, for now, while work is ongoing to consolidating the
wireless drivers. Your best bet is to either change the include
directories used by the ipw2x00 drivers, or simply keep on copying
that file to the source directory.
