2.insert "alias wlan0 iwl4965" in modprobe.conf

As a Sam Sharpe says on rhel5-list:, bug is
solved doing a soflink like this:

ln -s /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-4965.ucode /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-4965-1.ucode

 Can this be fixed in a next release of iwl4965-firmware package??


Comment 2 John W. Linville 2008-07-10 13:26:15 UTC
There alread is a next release of the firmware package.  Please update it from 
the Supplementary CD.

Comment 3 Carlos Lopez 2008-07-10 20:26:10 UTC
Sorry John, but under supplementary channel anly appears same buggy package ...

Comment 5 John W. Linville 2008-07-11 12:49:40 UTC
Others seems to have been able to get it.  What are you doing to attempt the update?

Comment 6 Carlos Lopez 2008-07-11 14:25:23 UTC
I have tried now and I only see previous version ...

Comment 7 John W. Linville 2008-07-11 14:41:45 UTC
Could you be more specific about _what_ you are trying?

Comment 8 Carlos Lopez 2008-07-11 14:54:50 UTC
Created attachment 311590 [details]

Comment 9 Carlos Lopez 2008-07-11 14:56:14 UTC
Yes, as you can see in this attachment, supplementary channel for rhel5 server
x86_64 only shows previous version: iwl4965-firmware-4.44.17-1.noarch

Comment 10 John W. Linville 2008-07-14 15:06:03 UTC
I am told that RHN has resolved the issue regarding availability of that 
package in the proper channel.  Please try the update process again!
