Description Pekka Savola 2001-07-16 05:12:15 EDT
Current initscripts always load appletalk and ipx kernel modules at
interface startup even if 99.9% of people never need these.

Should it be checked that they have at least been configured, or some
toggle like
IPX_ENABLE and APPLETALK_ENABLE?

RHL71 didn't do this (perhaps due to a less intelligent modprobe).
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2001-07-16 09:09:37 EDT
This is caused by the calls to iwconfig.
Comment 2 Jay Turner 2002-02-13 15:48:13 EST
So this is not a bug?
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2002-02-13 15:53:27 EST
Dunno. I haven't investigated to see whether it's fixable or not.
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2005-01-28 00:19:07 EST
This appears fixed now.
