Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:16 EST
Description of problem:
I had to download the firmware (same version as installed with fedora8) and
replace it with the one installed. Once I did that, the device worked.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 8.
2. Check if wireless is available.
No wireless device available
A wireless device to go online with.
Well, sorry i didn't understood what's the problem here...
Actually iwl4965-firmware bundles two firmwares,
188.8.131.52 and 4.44.17 - There is no new firmware image unless not public yet...
So, this is possible to use a previous kernel t
Are you sure the iwl4965-firmware package come from the Fedora version ?
do rpm -qi iwl4965-firmware should a buildserver at fedoraprojet ?
closing to not a bug for now but be sure to re-open if there is a problem
well sorry missunderstood that it's worked...
So you just wanted it to be installed by default... This might be done for next F8T3
Ok iwl4965-firmware is now added by default and will be provided with the next
I installed from DVD, so I guess that's why they were installed on my system.
But that wasn't what I meant. My problem was that i beleived that the firmware
was the reason that my wireless card didn't work on boot. So when i replaced the
firmware with the one i downloaded and reprobed the module, it worked.
But, I re-installed Fedora the other day and it seems that the only thing I need
to do is to reprobe the module.
So that's the real problem it seems. That the card is detected, but not enabled
before i reprobe the module.
I don't knwo then... probably a problem with the module?...
Do you meant you need to do this for each reboot ?
Yeah, I had to do it for every reboot. But hey, looks like that's been fixed for
Test3. So everything works perfectly with my wirelesscard now :)
