Description Rudolf Kastl 2005-06-16 07:04:35 EDT
Description of problem:
After installing the firmware and wpa_supplicant as well as configuring the
supplicant properly i get iocontrol errors instead of a connection to the wlan.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fc4 stock

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install the firmware
2.install wpa_supplicant and configure it as well as the essid of the interface
3.try to start a wlan connection with wpa encryption and watch it explode
Actual results:
 ioctl[IPW_IOCTL_WPA_SUPPLICANT]: Operation not supported
 ioctl[IPW_IOCTL_WPA_SUPPLICANT]: Operation not supported
 Failed to set encryption.

Expected results:
wlan connection with wpa support

Additional info:
I found this thread on the sf.net ipw list:

Would be nice to have the info verified and even better to see the problem fixed
or worked around with a builtin driver.
Comment 1 Dave Jones 2005-06-24 22:42:48 EDT
A driver shouldn't offer different functionality based upon whether its modular
or built-in, please take this up with upstream.  Changing this to non-modular in
the Fedora kernel isn't an option.
