Description Tomi Hautakoski 2008-01-09 20:05:50 UTC
Description of problem:
After upgrading from the original Livecd setup to the latest updates, my
zd1211rw A-Link WLAN card stopped working. There's nothing in the dmesg about
the driver and seems like the module is missing from the new kernel rpm:

[tomppa@localhost ~]$ rpm -q kernel
kernel-2.6.23.1-42.fc8
kernel-2.6.23.9-85.fc8
[tomppa@localhost ~]$ rpm -ql kernel-2.6.23.1-42.fc8|grep zd1211rw-mac80211
/lib/modules/2.6.23.1-42.fc8/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/zd1211rw-mac80211
/lib/modules/2.6.23.1-42.fc8/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/zd1211rw-mac80211/zd1211rw-mac80211.ko
[tomppa@localhost ~]$ rpm -ql kernel-2.6.23.9-85.fc8|grep zd1211rw-mac80211
[tomppa@localhost ~]$ 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.23.9-85.fc8

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC
2. Run 'yum update'
3. Boot and the card is not found anymore
  
Actual results:
Un-recognized WLAN card

Expected results:
A working WLAN card.

Additional info:
With the older kernel, the logs are these:

Bug #426917 could be caused by the same problem?
