iwlist eth scan: interface doesn't support scanning
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:29 EST
Description of problem:
"iwlist eth1 scan" gives me
"The interface doesn't support scanning" when acpid and cpuspeed
are on. When I disable them and reboot, it works fine. (ipw2100)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
IPW2100 FW 1.3
Notebook PackBell Easynote E5154
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot with acpid and cpuspeed on
3.iwlist eth1 scan
Fault occurred after booting yesterday, then some time later after
manually stop/starting acpid/cpuspeed I could not reproduce it
anymore; not even after another reboot.
Got tricked by another bug %-)
At each reboot, my wireless interface is randomly assigned
one of the two interface names eth0, eth1.
This is although I have the following in my modprobe.conf (default):
alias eth0 via-rhine
alias eth1 ipw2100
I wrote a separate bug report for it (Bug 188454).
