Description Rohit V. Kapoor 2007-01-20 00:15:16 EST
Description of problem: After applying udev update versioned 095-17 to fc6,
aironet kernel drivers no longer work. Cisco Aironet 350 cards (PCMCIA) won't
associate to a access point and won't acquire an IP address using DHCP (static
won't work either).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Install FC6 on a laptop with a Aironet 350 PCMCIA card. Aironet works fine with
the stock udev version 095-14. Upgrade to 095-17 and the Aironet drivers won't
work anymore. I've tried this with a PCMCIA Cisco Aironet 350 card, on a
Thinkpad T60. My guess is all Aironet cards would break, but I know for sure
Aironet 350 does break.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC6, Aironet 350 PCMCIA Card. It works OK.
2. Upgrade (yum update udev) to latest version 095-17. 
3. Aironet stops working, won't associate to an access point.
Actual results:
Aironet stops working, won't associate to an access point. Won't acquire IP
address using DHCP. Static leases won't work either.

Expected results:
Aironet should not stop working.

For anyone else encountering this problem the temporary workaround is to
downgrade to udev-095-14. 

(1) Download it from this URL:
(2) rpm -Uvh --oldpackage udev-095-14.i386.rpm
(3) Reboot!
