Description Bill Nottingham 2000-12-23 23:35:18 EST
The kernel is missing the wvlan_cs driver for the Lucent Wavelan 802.11 cards
(and others.)

It used to be included in the pcmcia-cs source...
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2000-12-25 23:35:47 EST
Don't WaveLAN cards use the wavelan driver in 2.4 as opposed to wvlan_cs?
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2000-12-25 23:39:38 EST
I don't think so - it certainly doesn't load.
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2000-12-25 23:43:31 EST
Yeah, that's the ISA one.  That'll teach me to try to remember what people told
me on IRC months ago after eating all day :)
Comment 4 Glen Foster 2001-01-11 16:17:02 EST
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Gold release
Comment 5 Michael K. Johnson 2001-01-15 17:15:50 EST
How about we split the difference and use wavelan_cs?
There is no wvlan_cs driver in 2.4.  Our current 2.4
config files turn on CONFIG_PCMCIA_WAVELAN so it should
be built when we have a kernel based on 2.4.0-final or
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2001-01-15 17:18:38 EST
That's not the same driver.

wvlan_cs is currently *only* in the pcmcia-cs source package; it needs added.
Comment 7 Michael K. Johnson 2001-01-22 13:58:42 EST
Builds in our current tree as of a few hours ago, but not yet tested.
Comment 8 Arjan van de Ven 2001-01-22 14:03:38 EST
As I don't have the hardware itself, I would appreciate all feedback I can get.
Comment 9 Bill Nottingham 2001-01-25 18:52:08 EST
Works for me in 0.99.11. Closing as resolved.
