Description of problem:
Running rawhide on a shiny new HP Pavilion dv1000 laptop:
- Centrino chipset
Have been yum updating daily to rawhide. I had wireless working on October 8th, I believe that it was working with one of the older kernels and the corresponding wireless-tools package (I may have been using the wireless-tools from FC4 at that point); sorry about the vagueness.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot into kernel-2.6.13-1.1600_FC5 with wireless-tools-28-0.pre9.5
2. ifup eth1
Actual Results: This line appears at the end of dmesg:
eth1 (WE) : Driver using old /proc/net/wireless support, please fix driver !
Expected Results: eth1 should have come up, allowing me to file more bugs, faster.
Looks similar to this:
the driver that got merged upstream is an earlier one than what was included in
fedora previously. This means you need the older firmware too. (Whatever one
matches 1.0.0 iirc)
The warning msg should be gone by now.
