Description Luke Dean 2008-05-04 23:30:05 UTC
net/wmwlmon was just marked for deprecation because the removal of wi_req broke it.  
Also, on October 1, 2007, the port was marked broken with gcc4.2.


wi_reg brokenness:
I have a simple conditional compillation patch that will allow the port to continue to function for everything except the wi NIC.  The troublesome code is confined to a single function that is only invoked in the presence of a wi NIC.  

Unfortunately my patch removes wi compatibility for versions of FreeBSD where wi_reg still exists.  If someone knows a better conditional compillation flag to use than __FreeBSD__, please do so.
Better yet, if someone knows how to correct the one small function that's causing the problem and has the right hardware to test it, that'd be great.

gcc4.2 brokenness:
I also made two small changes for some type mismatches.  The port now builds with 
gcc (GCC) 4.2.1 20070719  [FreeBSD]

This software is valuable to those of us who have never seen a wi NIC, and I don't want it to become deprecated just because it doesn't currently work with one odd NIC.  I hope that my contribution will help keep this port alive.

I have two patches to attach, but GNATS only allows one, so I will attach them in followups.

patch 2 of 2, second try...  Something about the last one didn't post 
Comment 4 Luke Dean 2008-05-05 00:26:44 UTC
Well, that second one just refuses to post correctly.  Maybe I should've 
put a .txt on the end or something.

I'll stop spamming just post them both here with .txt on the end:
