Thanks a lot

after recompiling the driver and reinstalling dmesg -c gives this

Code: Select all
[root@alarmpi ~]# sudo dmesg -c

Guess Im on the right track since there is a wlan0, but ifconfig does not show it:

Anything else that I have to do to activate it? If I try to do ifconfig wlan0 up it says:

Code: Select all
[root@alarmpi ~]# sudo ifconfig wlan0 up                                       
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Operation not permitted

Does it show up in iwconfig?

You can try to unblock with rfkill that might fix it for you.
