Amazinly fisher detected and automagically configured the linksys wireless
eternet device on the Dell latitude CSX and found the baystation and the
network id. No user intervention was needed! This is superior windows 98,
ME, and 2000, that all required manual configuration. Wowever, there is a
minor problem... The wole system frezes, except the mouse cursor, after
some operation. CTRL BKSPACE, CTRL ALT F1, F2, etc. do not work.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RH Fisher on a DELL Latitude CSX, accept the default "Laptop"
configuration. Allow DHCP.
2. Work with this machine for a while...
Actual Results: ystem freze in KDE
Expected Results: NO freze
Also, DNS does not seem to work well... Are there problems with the
PCMCIA? This may or may not be related... You appear to have to be logged
on and active for the problem to occur... If there is something you would
like me to try to help you analyze the issue please let me know. This does
not happen when not using X, but neither does it happen when using X and
When the system appears to freeze, is it still accessible from the network? I
suspect that something's killing the X server, and in turn, the console. If you
can log in remotely after this happens, then that's what's really going on....
