Description Daniel Walsh 2005-02-25 09:00:14 EST
Description of problem:
If I boot my laptop with the wireless card it never attempts to get an address.
Also if I stop and restart pcmcia it does not grab an address.
Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2005-04-21 10:56:13 EDT
Any progress on this, or should we move this to kernel?  Some other package.  I
beleve the problem is that pcmcia does not trigger events when it is restarted.
So hal never notices the device and does not trigger NetworkManager.

I'm going to be lazy and punt to HAL, david can reassign to kernel if he'd like.
Comment 3 David Zeuthen 2005-05-16 16:32:08 EDT
Reassigning back to NetworkManager since the report doesn't contain enough
information to warrant why this should be a kernel or hal bug.
Comment 4 Dan Williams 2005-05-16 16:44:15 EDT
hmmm.  Dan, does this still happen for you, and if so, can you post the
/var/log/messages for when you do 'service pcmcia restart'?
