kernel-188.8.131.52-8.fc7 does not start iwl4965
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:19 EST
Description of problem: testing kernel builds from koji, none of the 2.6.23
kernels have started my iwl4965 wireless.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): kernel-184.108.40.206-8.fc7
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install kernel, kernel-devel, kernel-headers and kernel-docs from koji
3. Wireless fails
iwl4965 shows up in dmesg but not in iwconfig
iwl4965 would work
Attaching lspci and dmesg outputs

Tested with 220.127.116.11-10 with the same results.
Bob, would you mind testing these F8-based kernels?
Do they work any better for you?
I installed kernel, kernel-devel, and kernel-headers. The results were the same.
It appears that my hardware has a bios bug, could this be part of the problem?
Hmmm...well, it certainly might be (at least part of) the problem, but I don't
see anything to suggest that in bug 251087 comment 3.
FWIW, iwl4965 runs very well on my T61. Is it possible that you have
accidentally trigger the rf kill on your laptop?
The physical switch is functional in the 18.104.22.168-91.fc7 kernel, does not
function in the 22.214.171.124-28.wl.1.fc8 kernel.
126.96.36.199-20.fc7 cleared up the issue, thanks John and Chuck! I will close this one.
