View Full Version : Wierd Wireless Problem
18th June 2008, 07:28 AM
Yum updated my kernel a few days ago and I'm having a strange problem. When I boot using the newer kernel - 188.8.131.52-55.fc9.x86_64 - as soon as network manager starts to try and activate my wireless my system completely hangs - No Ctrl-Alt-Bkspc and Ctrl-Alt-Del response. It just hangs and oddly enough my caps lock key just blinks on and off. It took me a while to figure out what was actually causing this, but by turning off my wireless switch on my laptop and disabling network-manager allows the system to finish booting. I don't believe this is network-manager's fault because if I try to start the wireless manually the system hangs also. My wireless is a broadcom chipset that is using the b43 module that was installed with dangermouse's "autonine" script.
When I boot to the 2nd choice on GRUB menu - 184.108.40.206-30.fc9.x86_64 - I don't have this problem.

Sorry for off-topic...
Sebastopol, Caly! I lived on Gravenstein Way for four years in Cotati. One of the many paradises on the planet. Thanx for reminding me!

Thanks for the link! I'll check out that thread and see if it helps me out. Strange that it has to do with WEP only...
And yes, I love Sebastopol. Lived here my whole life and I really appreciate this area more and more :D

I had problems with the above solution, probably a bug in the code cause it updates alot. but here is what i did.
To fix the Wireless WEP problem just goto http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/...o?buildID=52456 and select the proper format and install using rpm -Uvh filename.rpm and reboot and the new kernel problem is fixed in.
