I recommend to use the packages at the freshrpms repository. They
worked perfectly fine in my laptop with FC6 and CCRMA kernel. All I
had to do was to install these 3 packages:


The last one will automatically build the module for your kernel so
make sure you have installed the kernel headers package

Hope this works for you.

Now I installed Fedora 7 and the module is installed automatically and
I can connect but the laptop's wireless light is not working.
