RFE: update to 188.8.131.52
Last modified: 2008-10-22 13:24:19 EDT
Currently we ship version 184.108.40.206 of the iwl3945 firmware in fedora, while there is a newer one 220.127.116.11 (released on 09-01-08, see http://intellinuxwireless.org/?n=downloads )
Please consider updating the fedora package to the current version.
Looks like it's been updated by Intel to 18.104.22.168.
Note that this latest version is yet a different file name, so there will now be 3 firmware files in the package :
* iwlwifi-3945.ucode : 2.14.4
* iwlwifi-3945-1.ucode : 22.214.171.124
* iwlwifi-3945-2.ucode : 126.96.36.199
I'm assuming the oldest file could be removed from Rawhide without any problem, but given how small it is, I don't think it's worth the risk.
Package should appear with the next Rawhide push, thanks for the report.

The lastest version of the -1 file is 220.127.116.11 see: http://marc.info/?l=linux-wireless&m=122461362432337&w=2
It has the same fixes as 18.104.22.168 but works on older kernel versions (usefull for F8/F9)
Very good catch! Rebuilding now.
