Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 138340
Comments on a bug 62218 not allowed

Description of problem: I tried to add some comments about a re-
opened bug concerning Orinocco wireless cards, including a
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Current RedHat bugzilla, version 2.8?
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select re-opened bug 62218
2. Add comments
This useless error message: You tried to change the component field
from AfterStep-APPS to wireless-tools, but only the owner or
submitter of the bug, or a sufficiently empowered user, may change
Adding the comment successfully.
The workaround I wanted to submit for it is here:
The RedHat init and ifconfig scripts run iwconfig directly, not out
of the /etc/pcmcia. But they run them in the network init script
which runs before the pcmcia init script, so the PCMCIA device isn't
ready yet for the iwconfig commands.
Edit your /etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia init script to run *before* the
network init script, and run "chkconfig --del pcmcia; chkconfig
pcmcia on" and add your SSID and KEY to /etc/sysconfig/network where
the RedHat network init script tries to find them. Then reboot the
machine and check your logs.
I am closing this bug report as there has not been any activity on this for a
while and there has been various changes made to bugzilla in the meantime. If
the issue still exists, kindly reopen it. Thank you.
