Today’s 3122 kernel and iwlwifi-0.0.16 have taken care of kernel oopsing, and my Intel 3945 wireless happily associates with my AP in open, WEP, and WPA modes both with SSID broadcast on or off. Thanks to the upstream people who made this happen, with some “rabble rousing” from dragoran, and John Linville for sticking with this problem too. I have no idea whether Dave Jones helped, but holy hell, the guy works like a maniac, so thanks to him too.
I have no idea whether F7 will hit a target of having anaconda detect the wifi NIC and grab the right firmware, but I’m pleased as punch that a Fedora disc will get friends’ Intel 3945-equipped laptops off the ground all by its li’l lonesome.
Time to grab some dinner, then read over meeting minutes, and hack on the Installation Guide.
