Description Stig Hackvan 2002-12-01 07:28:54 UTC
Description of Problem:

iwconfig from wireless-tools does not match the current kernel's pcmcia drivers.

consequently, some things don't work...like WEP encryption, it seems.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

## /home/stig > iwconfig
lo        no wireless extensions.

Warning : Device eth1 has been compiled with version 13
of Wireless Extension, while we are using version 12.
Some things may be broken...

eth1      [...]

This is not going to be fixed at this point for these releases; the mismatch is
fixed in rawhide for the kernel that is there.
