Okay, now I've done it about 4 times. And I ^$%^@ing hate it. This failure came after a big and exciting "yum update" which (theoretically) got me the latest versions of 300-something packages. Well, I haven't looked at the actualy yum script but I think it's like this:


install 150 packages
break wireless networking
install the other 150 packages

okay, I'm kidding. Was pissed but am able to run wlan0 just by selecting the old kernel in startup. But shucks I want to use the new kernel someday. Ndiswrapper people, any chance for a "it just works" type system? even -- gasp! -- a GUI has been suggested.

  • i had the same problem when I udpated the kernel on my fedora 3 laptop.

    I'd like to see some wifi manufacturers making linux drivers rather than have to rely on NDIS...but you're right, they don't really have a stable program there.
