Description Joshua Weage 2004-04-30 13:43:21 EDT
Description of problem:

The stock Fedora network scripts don't quite work with the
linux-wlan-ng wireless network drivers.  These two patches create an
additional device type 'wlanng' which will call the appropriate
wlan-ng startup script - enabling the use of standard ifup/ifdown
interface commands with wlan devices.

Patch for sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup

Adds support for device type 'wlanng', which uses wlan-ng setup scripts instead
of the wireless setup script.

Add additional device type to network-functions

Adds device type 'wlanng' to the device list in network-functions.

At this point, I'm not going to add support for drivers we aren't
shipping.
