Description lars 2002-03-17 21:02:54 UTC
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...

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2002-03-18 06:59:49 UTC
Arjan, I think glibc-kernheaders needs updated with the newer

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2002-03-21 03:55:39 UTC

Comment 3 Jay Turner 2002-03-21 12:41:12 UTC
What's the status of this?

Comment 4 Arjan van de Ven 2002-03-21 12:42:52 UTC
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 14:23:02 UTC
Waiting on new glibc-kernheaders before rebuilding.

Comment 6 Michael Fulbright 2002-03-25 21:26:24 UTC
Fixed in 23-2.
