Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 84522
overly complicated to configure orinoco_pci device in neat
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:51:21 EDT
Description of problem:
It is overly complicated to configure the following wireless device using neat:
02:02.0 Network controller: Harris Semiconductor Prism 2.5 Wavelan chipset (rev
Subsystem: Intel Corp. Wireless 802.11b MiniPCI Adapter
Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 11
Memory at f8000000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=4K]
Capabilities: [dc] Power Management version 2
Note that this device uses the orinoco_pci module.
In neat, click on the
Hardware tab, click New, then select Hardware Type of
Wireless. This generates the following message:
Warning. Sorry, there is nothing to be edited, or this
type cannot be edited yet.
If this is the case, the Hardware Type of Wireless probably shouldn't be
available, and even if so, shouldn't be the default option.
Then I tried to setup the wireless device by clicking on the Devices tab,
clicking New, then selecting Device Type of Wireless connection. The orinoco_pci
device was not listed; the only option is Other Wireless Card. Selecting that, I
do not see an option listed for my wireless card.
The one way I was able to edit the wireless device was to edit /etc/modules.conf
and add the following line:
alias eth1 orinoco_pci
it is then possible to edit the wireless connection with neat. This is overly
complicated and shouldn't be unnecessary.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
redhat-config-network-1.1.97-1 (in Phoebe 8.0.94)
Can you please attach the output of:
$ python -c 'import kudzu;print kudzu.probe(kudzu.CLASS_NETWORK,
# python -c 'import kudzu;print
[Desc: Harris Semiconductor|Prism 2.5 Wavelan chipset
, Desc: Intel Corp.|82801CAM (ICH3) PRO/100 VE (LOM) Ethernet Controller
can you please retry with 1.2.15, which should be available today as an update
