Description of problem:
I am trying to use a Linksys 802.11g card. I doubt this is actualy suposed to
work yet, being that its new hardware. If theres any information that I can
prvide let me know. I've attached the output of lspci and the errors that are
logged in the syslog.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. put card in
2. no worky worky
Actual Results: no worky worky
Expected Results: It should eventualy get fixed.
I have tried the kernel, kernel-pcmcia-cs, and wireless-tools out of rawhide
other than that my system is phoebe2 + updates.
Created attachment 89754 [details]
output of lspci -vvv

This is what is printed in the syslog when the card is inserted and removed.
the linksys 802.11g card uses the Broadcom AirForce chipset; so given Broadcom's
history of (not) providing specs for their chipsets to the Open Source community
I'd say don't hold your breath for Linux support. <A

Once drivers exist we'll most likely ship them. So far they don't.
Since it doesn't look like drivers will exist short term I'm marking this
request as defered :(
