Description lars 2002-03-17 16:02:54 EST
The wireless-tools package in beta2 appears to be out of sync w/r/t the kernel.
 For example, running iwconfig against an interface using the wvlan_cs driver
results in the following warning:

Warning : Device eth0 has been compiled with version 12
of Wireless Extension, while we are using version 11.
Some things may be broken...

Arjan, I think glibc-kernheaders needs updated with the newer
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2002-03-20 22:55:39 EST
Comment 3 Jay Turner 2002-03-21 07:41:12 EST
What's the status of this?
Comment 4 Arjan van de Ven 2002-03-21 07:42:52 EST
1) It ought to not care which headers are there because they are supposed to be
backward compatible
2) I updated the header anyway in glibc-kernheaders
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2002-03-21 09:23:02 EST
Waiting on new glibc-kernheaders before rebuilding.
Comment 6 Michael Fulbright 2002-03-25 16:26:24 EST
Fixed in 23-2.
