Last modified: 2010-03-16 16:37:12 EDT
Description of problem:
The zd1201 USB wireless driver, which was working in FC5 and in Rawhide until
recently, no longer works.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Kernel versions 2.6.17-1.2556 through 2.6.17-1.2586.fc6
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot system.
2. (Install zd1201 firmware images if not already installed)
3. Attach zd1201 USB wireless adapter.
1. No wlan0 interface appears.
2. LED on USB unit flashes.
3. These messages appear in /var/log/messages:
Aug 27 23:22:20 localhost kernel: usb 2-1: new full speed USB device using
uhci_hcd and address 2
Aug 27 23:22:20 localhost kernel: usb 2-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
Aug 27 23:22:20 localhost kernel: usb 2-1: <NULL>: rx urb failed: -84
Aug 27 23:22:20 localhost kernel: zd1201: probe of 2-1:1.0 failed with error -5
Aug 27 23:22:20 localhost kernel: usbcore: registered new driver zd1201
wlan0 interface should appear, LED on USB wireless unit should be on steady, and
the interface should be usable for 802.11b connections.
Changing to proper owner, kernel-maint.
It's back! In FC6T3 and rawhide 2006-09-16 the driver works again.
