Description Vegard Nossum 2008-07-15 13:38:46 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008061712 Fedora/3.0-1.fc9 Firefox/3.0

Description of problem:
There is no wireless connection. I am using NetworkManager, and the network appears in the list, but when I choose my network, the icon just spins until eventually a box pops up asking me to re-type the keyring password or the WPA key.

This is a REGRESSION. Kernel version 2.6.25-14.fc9.i686 works every time. After updating the kernel to, it stopped working. The vanilla -rc kernels for 2.6.26 have all worked perfectly (compiled by me).

The first relevant difference in the kernel log between the BAD and the GOOD version is this:

+wlan0: disassociate(reason=3)

I don't know what reason 3 is. include/linux/wireless.h has this:

#define IW_MLME_ASSOC           3

Is there a way to see all patches that have been added to Fedora kernels? Is it also possible to see a list of patches that were added/removed between those versions?

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start machine
2. Enter keyring password into nm-applet
3. Wait for nothing to happen
