Valhalla: initrd-everything.img: unresolved symbols in airo_cs.o
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:02 EDT
Just tried to do 7.2->7.3 upgrade on my laptop, but it failed to initialize my
cardmgr: socket 1: Aironet PC4800
cardmgr: executing: 'modprobe airo_cs.o'
cardmgr: + /tmp/airo-cs.o: unresolved symbol reset_airo_card
cardmgr: + /tmp/airo-cs.o: unresolved symbol init_airo_card
cardmgr: + /tmp/airo-cs.o: unresolved symbol stop_airo_card
(copied by hand, so may contain typos).
I used vmlinuz and initrd-everything.img from images/pxeboot (by downloading
them and sticking them into my grub.conf).
What is a aironet card?
Aironet PC4800. (Aironet Wireless Communications, Inc was bought by Cisco, so
it's also known as Cisco PC4800, I guess). In short, it's the card that the
airo_cs driver is supposed to work with (aironet4500_cs too, but according to
bug #40552 for 4800 (as opposed to 4500 cards), airo_cs works better).
Anyway, this bug is more about airo_cs driver failing to load because of
unresolved symbols, is it really important what card caused it to be loaded?
Jeremy we don't support wireless network cards in the install do we?
No, wireless cards aren't supported for installing because we have no way to set
up the wireless tools parameters.
