I just let PUP update the kernel on my laptop to 2.6.22.1-32.fc6. When I boot into that kernel, my wireless interface fails to start. When I run
$ ifup eth1

I get

SIOCSIFFLAGS: Operation not supported
Failed to bring up eth1.

I've looked, but I cannot find any reference to the variable SIOCSIFFLAGS. Anyone know what's wrong and how to fix this?
OK, I screwed up yesterday. Someone said this and said his wireless works but
hi NIC didn't.

But neither of you included a piece of essential information. You are
running F6 . Is that not true. You really should tell people this since
most of the conversations are on f7.

This brings up an interesting point. I try to provide pertinent information without overdoing it. I find that if I include too much info and my note gets too long, people don't read it. In this case, I was hoping the environmental variable SIOCSIFFLAGS would be the key piece of information.
