Hi guys/girly's,

As of Fedora 10, B43 Wireless cards worked straight off (Well, mine did), brilliant I thought, no more threads "How do I get b43 working?" Anywho, so In my Fedora 10 my b43 was happy as larry and worked straight off...

But Rawhide has for some-reason detected it correctly, but strangely doesn't show any AP, as if there is no signal. I think this may have happened upon the kernel 2.6.29-x.

Or is it just my card? Anyone else having this issue?

They are ripping up HAL in 11 to put all the block device stuff in device kit. So HAL probably see's it and then there's a glitch on the handoff for using it. Device kit made the grade so you are probably presently testing HAL changes right now.

Happened to me too, I ended up reverting back to the old one.
