Description Robert Williams 2005-06-09 14:01:51 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
ipw2100-firmware and ipw2200-firmware are not available in Fedora Extras
or Core.  These packages are available in ES4 Extras, so it seems to be
an oversight that they are absent here.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run "yum install ipw2100-firmware" or check the distribution lists.

Actual Results:  These packages (2100 and 2200) are not found.

Expected Results:  These packages should be available in Fedora development extras
and should install using yum.   (My yum config does include extras developement.)
(They are available in ES4 extras.)

Additional info:

Comment 1 Seth Vidal 2005-06-13 01:32:18 UTC
The packages can't be included in fedora-extras b/c of licensing restrictions.
Marking as deferred in hopes that one day the legal issues get fixed.
