Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 163123
Problem with /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-wireless (and others)
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:54:54 EDT
My /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-wlan0 (as generated by the sysconfig
utilities) contains the line:
When I boot my system (before a fix), I got the message:
Error: unrecognised wireless request "Mb/s"
In /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-wireless, there is a line:
iwconfig $DEVICE rate $RATE
If I change this line to
iwconfig $DEVICE rate "$RATE"
I don't get the message when I boot
It could be that the problem is really in the config scripts that
write ifcfg-wlan0. Maybe they should have put '54M' into
the file rather than '54 Mb/s'?
Version of release notes this bug refers to:
Fedora Core 4 final release
Sorry, I don't see the relationship to the release notes.
rpm -qf /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-wireless
Reassigning to initscripts owner.
RATE enclosed in quotes in CVS, will be in 8.12-1 - thanks!
