Well, sorry  i didn't understood what's the problem here...

Actually iwl4965-firmware bundles two firmwares, 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
Comment 2 Nicolas Chauvet (kwizart) 2007-09-23 05:49:26 EDT
well sorry missunderstood that it's worked...
So you just wanted it to be installed by default... This might be done for next F8T3
Comment 3 Nicolas Chauvet (kwizart) 2007-09-26 13:33:25 EDT
Ok iwl4965-firmware is now added by default and will be provided with the next
F8t3 release
Comment 4 Ole Tøsse Kolvik 2007-09-28 13:50:07 EDT
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 ?
Comment 6 Ole Tøsse Kolvik 2007-10-04 16:42:54 EDT
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 :)
