Build the binary module package yourself-Madwifi

When I am working on Debian Live project I found a problem :

I am customizing Debian Live using Live-helper
Kernal using :Linux 2.6.26-1-686

The wifi-connection is not being detected, I have packed madwifi-tools, madwifi-source,wireless-tools,gnome-network-admin,network-manager packages any other packages are required for that wife-connection.

I am using linux 2.6.26-1-686 kernal and I didn't find how can I able to add that ?

Here is the solution ...........

madwifi modules are not prebuilt in the archive because the maintainer of madwifi didn't wanted us to do that (on behalf of linux-modules-nonfree-2.6).

however, you need to build the binary module package yourself (m-a build madwifi) and put it into your config/chroot_local-packages.

And now your madwifi package support in your customized Debian Live
