Downloads for openWNS are available via http://launchpad.net. Developers should fetch the trunk series of openwns-sdk at http://launchpad.net/openwns-sdk. The SDK offers a tool to automatically fetch all subprojects and will help you in the installation, build and testing process. See the installation guide for more details.
openWNS on USB
If you just want to test openWNS without installing a Linux machine you can get a bootable openWNS image for USB sticks. You will need the USB Image Tool from http://www.alexpage.de/usb-image-tool/ to create the USB stick. All data on the stick will be erased! The stick needs to have a minimum capacity of 8GB. Download the image below and install it using the "Restore" function of the USB Image Tool. Reboot and be sure to configure your BIOS to boot from USB stick.
After the machine has booted you can start with the openWNS tutorial by just opening the Firefox browser on the desktop and following the instructions in the "WiFiMAC Tutorial" chapter. First time you boot from the stick you might get a warning telling you that the USB stick was not clearly unmounted, this can be ignored. Unfortunately the system will not boot if the hardware is not supported, but sometimes trying to boot again or booting in FailSafe mode could work. If needed the password for the "openwns" user is "openwns".
Access via bzr
Note that you need to 'cd' ('cd myOpenWNS') into the downloaded (branched) working copy of openWNS and say './playground.py upgrade' to fetch the missing parts
