I'm using SuSE 10.2 and I want to update the firmware of a wireless card
with the Prism2 (2.5) chipset. I have tested many things but I still can't
understand why it's not working, so I would appreciate very much any help
from the experts.

To update de firmware I use the command "prism2_srec -v -f wlan2
pk010101.hex sf010704.hex" but it returns an error saying that I have to
define PRISM2_DOWNLOAD_SUPPORT in driver/module/hostap_config.h

I understand that the hostap drivers are part of the 2.6.18 kernel, so I
have installed the kernel sources and I have verified that the DEFINE of
commented, in the hostap_config.h that is located in

Even so, I have compiled the kernel and restarted with the new kernel, but
the prism2_srec is still returning the same error. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for any possible suggestion.
