Description Helge Deller 2007-04-28 21:30:09 UTC
Description of problem:
Since FC7 includes the new devicescape wireless stack, Networkmanager should 
at least work with the Atheros Dadwifi drivers. Currently Networkmanager does 
not even detect the ath_pci wlan0 driver and does not show any wireless 
selections.

Connecting with FC7 test4 by hand does work though.

How reproducible:
Always.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download dadwifi-openhal branch: 
http://madwifi.org/browser/branches/dadwifi-openhal
2. Build & install
3. modprobe ath_pci
4. run "iwconfig wlan0 channel 1"  (else it won't work, bug in 
dadwifi-openhal!)
5. modify the wpa_supplicant config file the standard way.
6. run wpa_supplicant with the "wext" 
driver:  "wpa_supplicant -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf -Dwext -iwlan0"

Actual results:
This isn't different to other wifi drivers (beside no. 4) and as such it 
should work with NetworkManager as well...

Expected results:
Atheros dadwifi-openhal should work.

Comment 1 Helge Deller 2007-05-17 13:44:58 UTC
works now for me with latest updates:
- FC7 kernel 2.6.21-1.3149.fc7
- dadwifi-openhal branch with at least revision 2345
- latest FC7 networkmanager updates.
Thanks!
