Description of problem:
Using RHEL5 Gold, and booting the xen kernel with ipw3945 kmod for xen from the
rhel repo, the wireless doesn't worki.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install the xen kernel
2. install the ipw3945 xen kmod package
3. network manager doesn't properly connect to wireless networks
wireless doesn't work via network manager.
wireless should work via network manager.
I found that by mucking around with the start order of xend, NetworkManager,
NetworkManagerDispatcher, and ipw3945d the system will work as expected.
The start order I used was
There is a similiar problem to xend relating to cman. essentially xend breaks
all of the currently existing network connections in the system and this
confuses alot of other software.
This enables wirelss networking.
please note that without the e1000 network cable plugged into a switch or hub,
xen also doesn't work. Please reference bz 239404 for more information.
Ading a metoo here. On Lenovo X61. RHEL5.1 fully up2date.
Running Xen kernel gives me the card and eth1 but it doesn't seem to get
packets. Will follow up with more details.
