Description Daniel Lipsitt 2006-03-25 00:48:25 EST
Description of problem:

system-config-network should scan the files in /etc/modprobe.d for available
interfaces. The ndiswrapper package, for example, creates /etc/modprobe.d
containg "alias wlan0 ndiswrapper".

Steps to Reproduce:
1. new
2. wireless connection
3. forward

Only choice is "Other Wireless Card"


4. sudo cat /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper >> /etc/modprobe.conf

and "ndiswrapper(wlan0)" becomes available in the Select Wireless Device dialog.

Please note this is also affecting other packages which started using the
modprobe.d directory for storing their data.

For example, madwifi from livna just were added a file for correct
initialization which is dropped there.
