Description Marcel Telka 2001-04-23 08:08:35 UTC
After upgrade my RHL-7.0 box to kernel-2.2.19-7.0.1 (from kernel-2.2.17-14)
iwconfig generates segfault. I'm using module wvlan_cs which comes with
kernel-2.2.19 and wireless-tools-20-2 (from RHL-7.0).

[root@tortuga /root]# iwconfig eth1

If you download:


does that work for you?

Yes. `iwconfig eth1` doesn't generate segfault.
