Reassigning against the kernel, since this isn't a firwmare package specific bug.
is there anything else i can provide ?
Reassigning properly with owner change (oops!).
Re-assigning to wireless maintainer. Please test against a 2.6.24-based kernel
when you are able and update this bug.
If problems persist with current F8 kernels, please try adding "options
iwl3945 disable_hw_scan=1" to /etc/modprobe.conf. Does that change the
situation for you?
i updated to the latest fc9 kernel from kojo , that fixed my problem .
Thanks for the update Sven. Closing to reflect that then...
ok, sorry, have to reopen .. i just did hit it again and did created some debug
Created attachment 294716 [details]
with modprobe iwl3945 debug=1
log with debug=1 nothing else
Created attachment 294717 [details]
aditional log with different options ..
look at this :
iwl3945: Microcode SW error detected. Restarting 0x82000008.
iwl3945: I iwl3945_irq_handle_error Restarting adapter due to uCode error.

Is this still a problem with recent F8 kernels?
And/or recent rawhide kernels?
yes it works .. you can close this one .
