find the new version of firmld utility to load the necessary firmware of
the card. There are new firmwares too.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. insmod the new isicom module
2. try original firmld

Additional info:

The new firmld vorks fine on both SMP and UP kernel

Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2001-12-22 04:31:22 UTC
I've updated this package to version 3.05, and build -1 release
against RHL 7.2, and -3 release in rawhide.


Please let me know right away if this works or not, as it aparently
has been broken for quite some time and nobody notified us.  We don't
have the hardware to check directly.  If it doesn't work properly
please reopen this bug.

I also included the supplied initscript.
