Description of problem:
Would it be possible to include support for the Intel Pro Wireless
2100 and 2200 wireless cards? (The drivers are available at
ipw2100.sf.net and ipw2200.sf.net respectively)
Most Centrino laptops come with either of these cards, so it would be
a nice addition. There might be license problems with bundling the
binary firmware, but it is packaged separately from the drivers and
from SuSE 9.1 install reports it seems that SuSE just bundles the
drivers and tell their users to get the firmware themselves.
Third-party RPMs are already available at
but bundling it with the kernel (perhaps sans the firmware) would
allow integration with Anaconda and system-config-network
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Would need some sort of license for the firmware, really.
Is there any reason not to include at least the kernel module? Users
could download the firmware themselves. There is a big difference
between having to download one binary file and having to compile a
It would need to be in the upstream kernel.
these modules have already been integrated into Fedora kernel.
so the bug should be closed
