I used to download compat-wireless-3.6.8-1 on Ubuntu 12.04 And successfully compile it into target files for compat.ko, cfg80211.ko, mac80211.ko, ath.ko, ath9k_hw.ko, ath9k_common.ko ath9k.ko .

Now I need to use linux kernel 3.11 above version.

So I download the new version with backports-3.13-rc2-1 and use it in the Ubuntu 13.10 . But I found that I don't have .config file to compile it.

So, I copy the .config file from source compat-wireless-3.6.8-1. And use the .config to compile the source code of backports-3.13-rc2-1 .

And the results was , there is only compat.ko.

My question is that how can I get all the device driver ( for compat.ko, cfg80211.ko, mac80211.ko, ath.ko, ath9k_hw.ko, ath9k_common.ko ath9k.ko .) and how to compile it use the souce code from backports-3.13-rc2-1.

Or where can I find the Makefile or .config file for backports-3.13-rc2-1?

  • "backports" of what? The kernel? – Braiam Dec 27 '13 at 3:34
  • @Braiam--backports of most wireless and some ethernet drivers. – chili555 Dec 27 '13 at 3:47

Assuming that the extracted file is on your desktop, in a terminal, do:

cd ~/Desktop/backports-3.13-rc2-1
make clean
make defconfig-ath9k
make
sudo make install
sudo modprobe -r ath9k && sudo modprobe ath9k

'sudo make install' will produce a signing key warning that you may safely ignore.
