*boggle*.  There's no networking or ipw related patches in current rawhide, so
this is a mystery.

Any interesting debug info in dmesg ?

Was your build with the rawhide gcc4.1 ? With CONFIG_OPTIMIZE_FOR_SIZE ?

Comment 2 Horst H. von Brand 2005-12-20 17:21:48 UTC
Yes, very strange. 

Didn't look at dmesg, sorry.

I used the stock rawhide kernel du jour, which suddenly broke on me. By now,
that kernel is long gone here :-(

Yes, the vanilla kernel was build with rawhide's gcc, not optimizing for size. 

Haven't tried newer kernels with the wireless network, so I can't tell if they
break. Will check later today.

Comment 3 Horst H. von Brand 2005-12-20 20:21:14 UTC
OK, tried now with 2.6.14-1.1776_FC5. No problems.

Sorry for the noise.
