Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 147298
Needs 80211.g Driver Support!
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:59 EST
I'm very confused as to why the advanced wireless stuff isn't included
in the extras package by now.
Madwifi = http://sourceforge.net/projects/madwifi/
Intel Centrino Pro/Wireless 2200 = http://ipw2200.sourceforge.net/
With all the work it seems you're doing on NetworkManager, it seems to
be an absolute necessity to figure out how to incorporate these
drivers. I'm sick of using my Orinico B wireless.
This belongs in the Core kernel, and the only way that will happen is
it is merged into the upstream kernel. ipw2200 could possibly be
merged legally, but then the only problem would be having packages of
the firmware. Extras cannot ship the firmware legally.
Understandable that the firmware can't be shipped. Can't there be
some kind of "click through" license that the user agrees to during
Anyone using a laptop and Linux knows there are some serious
deficiencies and something *must* be done if Redhat and Novell are to
seriously claim to push Linux on the desktop.
