Description Joshua Ginsberg 2003-01-15 03:02:44 UTC
I have a wireless PCMCIA device that is configured to use the wvlan_cs driver. I
configured it manually using the netconfig cli command "netconfig --device=eth1
--bootproto=dhcp"... I then try to run neat... stderr reports :

Warning : Device eth1 has been compiled with version 14
of Wireless Extension, while we are using version 12.
Some things may be broken...

after a slew of libglade warnings... graphically, I am presented with :

Component: redhat-config-network
Version: 1.1.86

KeyError: Wireless

Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2003-01-15 11:49:41 UTC
should be fixed with 1.1.90 (second public beta)

Comment 2 Joshua Ginsberg 2003-05-19 22:42:47 UTC
I submitted this bug for Phoebe 1... in Phoebe 3 at least it was fixed... Unless
the bug has resurfaced for RH9 (I wouldn't know; I'm not running it yet) this
bug should probably be closed...
