FC10a yum madwifi issue. Atheros Wireless Card.
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:06:12 EST
Description of problem:
I've upgraded from FC9 to FC10a (rawhide) on my laptop. It's a toshiba satalite A135-S4656. When I originally installed FC9, I had troubles getting my wireless card to work. After a little reading I found that by installed madwifi, this was easily corrected. After my upgrade however, the wireless became unusable again. I haven't done a whole lot of research on it yet. The problem I'm having now is when I run yum update I get the following:
ERROR with rpm_check_debug vs depsolve:
kernel-uname-r is needed by (installed) kmod-madwifi-220.127.116.11-97.fc9.i686-0.9.4-38.lvn9.i686
kernel-uname-r is needed by (installed) kmod-madwifi-18.104.22.168-108.fc9.i686-0.9.4-39.lvn9.i686
(1, [u'Please report this error in bugzilla'])
I'm assuming I'me getting this error because I had to disable the livna repos. I've tried enabling the livna-devel repo but still no such luck.
I've tried yum clean all and then retrying but no go.
I have the following for a wireless card:
# lspci | grep -i wire*
04:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter (rev 01)
Please let me know if I can get you any other additional information to help you resolve this issue.
I have worked around the problem by doing the following:
yum erase madwifi
yum install madwifi
You got this error because you had two versions of kmod-madwifi installed. Reference https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=460548 for more info. I'm closing this ticket as well since it's not a bug.
