With the 2.6.17 kernel update in FC5 the sdhci module was included as part of the upstream kernel. I found that I needed to load the mmc_block module in order to have the card be detected and have hal automount it. A subsequent hal update (0.5.7.1) broke the automounting and I ended up reverting hal to get it working rather than try to shoehorn a newer hal there. In FC6, it's worked out of the box. >> The Intel 3945 card works great with Network Manager here, >> connecting to a WPA2 Personal AP. > > Cool, I'll have to try it again. Best of luck.

The driver requires, and ATrpms provides, an updated ieee80211 stack and it has proven more stable for me. I recently built the ipw3945 driver from source as I used to do with FC4 and early FC5 and I had problems with the network dropping out randomly while I was putting heavy load on the network. I had this problem in FC5 before using the ATrpms drivers and I switched to using the standard network service instead of NetworkManager and the dropouts were far fewer. I thought the problem was just NetworkManager bugs but now at least I know that even with NetworkManager the network is solid using an up to date ieee80211 as well as ipw3945 driver. -- Todd OpenPGP -> KeyID: 0xBEAF0CE3 | URL: www.pobox.com/~tmz/pgp ====================================================================== You pretend to work, and we'll pretend to pay you.
