Description of problem:
Hello I'm confronting a problem with my Asus eee901 Netbook since the 2nd October when I upgraded my Fedora11. The wireless hotkey Fn+F2 for enabling/disabling wireless rt2860 is not working. I don't see any reaction from the different logs when I try to enable/disable the wireless
however I can enable the wireless adaptor from Bios and it is functioning.
Is there any known bug about this problem? How can I manually enable the wireless module to investigate more? Other hotkeys are functioning as they should (suspend, display brightness, display switching , volume, mute).
I suspect that the problem is due to the update kmod-rt2860-184.108.40.206-64.fc11.i686.PAE and/or Ibus updates
because these updates that I recieved on october the 2nd.
I've attached a part from the yum.log containing updates during 29September-2October.
Note that I've verified that the hotkey works by running Fedora 11 liveCD and I could see that Ralink RT2860 disappears/ shows up when I press the Fn+F2 meanwhile checking the devices using the command lspci.
I've tried the Fedora mail list and Irc channel but it doesn't seems that this problem is recognized.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Fn+F2 does not turn on/off ralink RT2860 wireless device. No information in log files (dmesg, messages ...) when I press the hotkey.
Fn+F2 hotkey on Asus eee 901 should turn on/off the wireless device Ralink RT2860.
Are you using some input method? If yes, please use 'im-chooser' to disable input method, and test the Fn-F2 again. If it can fix this problem, maybe this issue is caused by ibus.
From the System menu>Preferences>Input method , the checkbox:"Enable input method feature" was unchecked.
I enabled the feature and Use ibus (recommended) was the only selection in input method list box. I logged out and restarted the system, the icon ibus input framework showed up when I logged in. But still the same behaviour. The wireless device is not disabled, and the log files does not log in information when I press Fn+F2.
How about disable the ibus? Does Fn-F2 work?
The checkbox "Enable input method feature" was previously unchecked by standard. Does this mean that ibus is disabled? In that case Fn+F2 does not work when ibus is disabled as well as enabled.
So I think the problem is not in ibus.
Could You please give me advice about where should I forward this issue or how can I debug by myself. Obviously the problem is not related to ibus but as I mentioned in the problem description. The hotkey stopped to function after the updates in ibus and kmod-rt2860-220.127.116.11-64.fc11.i686.PAE.
What Fedora component is responsible for kmod-rt2860-18.104.22.168-64.fc11.i686.PAE?
/thank You for Your help.

> What Fedora component is responsible for
None. Fedora does not include any kmod packages. You must have installed this package from a 3rd party repository, which has its own Bugzilla.
