8.1.3 Installing Image

Samsung NC10 NetBook

The firmware, tools , network service and the patch were downloaded from LinuxWimax

  1. Compile a Linux Kernel to Version greater than 2.6.35 and reboot into that kernel.
  1. Install the i2400m firmware
    Download the i2400 firmware 1.5.0 version.
    Untar the source , cd to the directory and
      install -o root -g root -m 0644 *.sbcf /lib/firmware
  2. Install the Wimax Tools

First install libnl and libnl's development packages

   apt-get install libnl1 libnl-dev libglib2.0-0 libglib2.0-dev
   apt-get install build-essential pkg-config
   cd ~Download/wimax-tools-1.4.3 
   export I2400M=/lib/firmware/
   make install
  1. Build the libeap library
    To do that first install openssl libraries.
    apt-get install libglobus-openssl libglobus-openssl-dev libssl-dev 

Download the Supplicant from wpa-supplicant Untar and unzip the download

cd ~Downloads/wpa_supplicant-0.7.3
patch -p1 < PATH/wpa_supplicant-0.7.3-generate-libeap-peer.patch 
make -C src/eap_peer
make -C src/eap_peer install

Please do not forget to run ldconfig otherwise you will not be able to build the Wimax-Tools from Intel.

  1. Build the Intel-Wimax-Tools Untar and unzip the downloaded source and

cd ~Downloads/wimax-1.5.1 Add in the NDnSAgentConfig_forDriver.xml file

                                                <Text>GENI WiMAX Technical Support</Text>
                                                <Text>GENI Portal</Text>

Geni Configuration File

./configure --with-linux=/usr --with-libwimaxll=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --prefix=/usr --enable-instrument --with-wimax-db-bin=/var --with-ver-info-bin=/var
make install

This new configuration with the .bin enabled allows us now to modify the NDns parameters on the fly by modifying WiMAX_Def.bin and WiMAX_DB.bin files located in /var/lib/wimax directory.
You can edit the file and restart the wimaxd service to see the changes. The GENI files are included here.
