[iwl3945] Status LED doesn't light up (Lenovo T61)
Last modified: 2009-09-02 04:59:35 EDT
Description of problem:
iwl3945 driver works fine, but the LED never lights up
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. modprobe iwl3945
2. ifconfig wlan0 up
3. Look for LED
LED doesn't light up
LED should light up and blink when packets go flying around the room.
Works fine in Fedora.
The code is already in the kernel-2.6.18-128 source tree. If I set CONFIG_IWL3945_LEDS=y and recompile the kernel, the LED lights up when I ifconfig wlan0 up.
The blinking seems a little off, though. It seems to only have three states, on, off, and blinking.
