Description of problem:
the net.agent script of the hotplug package does no more set the HWADDR variable
(as it was in 7.3). On the other side the /etc/pcmcia/wireless.opts needs this
information to select the configuration.
A workaround is to not use the HWADDR in wireless.opts
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just boot the system with a wireless.opts dependent of HWADDR
2. Check the config with iwconfig
hotplug no longer uses wireless.opts; it uses the config files set up with
redhat-config-network. Please reopen if I'm misunderstanding something here...
