RHEL5.2 Release Notes: Update notes about mac80211/d80211
Last modified: 2010-03-14 17:30:41 EDT
The "devicescape" 802.11 stack has been renamed "mac80211" and has been accepted
upstream for a while. The release notes should probably be updated to reflect
it's current status and name change.
mac80211 802.11a/b/g WiFi protocol stack (mac80211)
(x86;x86_64) The mac80211 stack (formerly the devicescape/d80211 stack)
enables the iwlwifi 4965GN wireless driver for Intel WiFi Link 4965 hardware.
This stack allows certain wireless devices to connect to any Wi-Fi network.
Although the stack has been accepted upstream, the stability of this stack
is yet to be conclusively verified through testing. As such, this stack is
included in this release as a Technology Preview.
