Description Michael Wiktowy 2006-03-09 00:05:32 EST
Description of problem:
FC4 does not seem to have the zd1211 module compiled with the kernel. Ubuntu
Hoary includes this module.

ZyDAS seems to be one of the few wireless HW manufactures that actively supports
Linux and releases their drivers under the GPL. Driver module and wpa_supplicant
source available here:

patch to wpa_supplicant to support ZyDAS driver

Switching target for request to FC5 since the module is not there either.

Drake really need to move this upstream. I don't understand what the
holdup is.
