Long time ago you could easily install madwifi drivers for atheros wireless cards as they were found in the livna (or RPM fusion?) repositories. Today I cannot find any guide or even mentions when googling it. Am I missing something?

The madwifi driver is deprecated nowadays in favor of ath5k and ath9k. So there should be no need to recompile or install additional drivers nowadays.
