Description Aleksey Nogin 2001-05-14 10:11:12 EDT
RedHat 6.2 used airo_cs driver for Aironet 4800 cards. That driver
supported run-time configuration and monitoring through the /proc/aironet

RedHat 7.1 uses aironet4500_cs driver for the same cards. This driver does
not seem to put anything useful in /proc and does work with wireless-tools
(iwconfig says "no wireless extensions").

Is there a reason why RH7.1 uses aironet4500 instead of airo?
Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2001-05-14 10:15:36 EDT
The aironet4500_cs is the one that comes with the offical linux kernel tree.
However, we've included the airo_cs as backup driver in our kernel so you 
_can_ use it just fine. All you need to do is change /etc/pcmcia/config

I must say that I'm considering making the airo_cs the default for 4800, the
aironet4500_cs doesn't seem to work well with them. 

Could you try the other driver? If it works I'll change the default for newer
versions of the pcmcia packages.

I tried airo_cs, seems to be working fine.
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2001-05-15 15:15:09 EDT
Thanks for confirming this; I've modified the driver for the next
kernel-pcmcia-cs package we will build. I'm closing this as "fixed in rawhide"
as that is the closest thing to the truth.
