Description of problem:
I upgraded a newly installed RHL 7.3 laptop from kernel-2.4.18-3 to
kernel-2.4.18-5. Now when I run iwconfig on my wavelan card, I get the warning:
# iwconfig eth0
Warning : Device eth0 has been compiled with version 13 of
Wireless Extension, while we are using version 12.
Some things may be broken...
(Incidentally, the kernel upgrade solved the reset problems I was experiencing
[similar to bug #65097])
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): wireless-tools-32-2
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade to kernel-2.4.18-5
2. Run iwconfig
This is not going to be fixed at this point for these releases; the mismatch is
fixed in rawhide for the kernel that is there.
