hey! I am not the reporter , just try to help !
Ah, thanks for pointing that out. :-)
I'm still going to leave it closed for now -- please reopen if the problem is
still happending with current F8 kernels.
Sorry for the late answer.
I just tested with:
vermagic: 18.104.22.168-85.fc8 SMP mod_unload 686 4KSTACKS
unload module and reload with options ipw2200 led=1 hwcrypto=1 -> works
reboot just in case with the same parm -> works
In other words it works again.
Ok some more feedback.
While it seems to work in general, it's flaky. Meaning I was running a streaming
video and the led went on and off, and the stream began to break up at times.
First thought was I had something CPU intensive running in the back, so I
rebooted since I just upgraded the kernel via yum. Clean fresh machine same
video same problem.
So I unloaded the module and reloaded without hwcrypto=1 and the problem went away.
vermagic: 22.214.171.124-107.fc8 SMP mod_unload 686 4KSTACKS
Options with problem:
#options ipw2200 led=1 hwcrypto=1
Options without any problem:
options ipw2200 led=1
Workaround run without hwcrypto.
