Re: kernel 2.6.10 in [current]

After upgrading to 2.6.10 my wireless network is no longer working.   wlan-ng may need to be rebuilt for 2.6.10.

I'm trying to do that myself with abs, but since my wireless network is no longer working, its rather troublesome to have to keep booting in to windows, download the files I want, store them on my USB drive.  Reboot into linux, try it... reboot into windows, download more files... etc.

I'll post something if I can get it to work, but in the meantime, if you rely on wlan-ng, then I recomend that you do not upgrade to kernel 2.6.10
MOD: made important warning big, to be seen better - dp

to change the subject a little, should packages that are built for a particular kernel list that kernel version as a requirement?   It would have been nice if pacman told me that I shouldnt upgrade the kernel because a compatible version of wlan-ng hasnt been put in the repositories yet.

this incompatibility comes only up, when wlan-ng uses newer things respectively things that are handeled otherways by the wireless modules in the kernel (the wlang and kernel-modules communicate and should understand each other ;-) ) ... this change does not happen on every kernel upgrade 2.6.10 is a special case for non-backwards compatibility, that was most probably unknown till now :-(

Re: kernel 2.6.10 in [current]

I think I need to revert back to 2.6.9 but I dont have that package in my cache anymore (silly me for clearing that out a while back), and I cant find any repositories that seem to have it anymore.

Are old packages stored anywhere?

Re: kernel 2.6.10 in [current]

in case anyone lost his mouse when upgrading (like me I had it in a USB hub in my kbd) one has to add uhci_hcd in the MODULES array in /etc/rc.conf

I found that out by diff the lsmod without hwd and with hwd

thank you ArchLinux I love you every day. I know see that hal automatically mounts (without problems) every CD disc I insert. Nice and this doesn't have to do anything with kernel2.6.10 but with ArchLinux in general

Re: kernel 2.6.10 in [current]

this is an example of one of the problems that has plagued arch for some time now. Namely key package upgrades getting into the trees BEFORE and not with other packages that are dpended on the specific version of the key package. I really get frustrated when I hear it is still happening. Whenever the kernel or perl and other such stuff is going to be upgraded the other devs should know so that they can seek the version dependent packages out so people don't have to post these threads.

Re: kernel 2.6.10 in [current]

I also lost my wireless network when I did a pacman -Syu and accepted the updates including the kernel my ndiswrapper with net8180 no longer functions with this kernel
see code as posted in another thread also on here. Here is some output so far.

[root@LapTop ~]# ndiswrapper -i /lib/windrivers/NET8180.INF

Going to try and put the kernel back to the old version. Also notice all my DVD problems that i had sorted out finally all came back with the kernel update.

:cry:

Re: kernel 2.6.10 in [current]

wlan-ng26 has been updated, and now seems to work with kernel 2.6.10.  It does behave a little bit differently (ie, it displays a bunch of other stuff when loading), but seems to work the same.

Re: kernel 2.6.10 in [current]

I would suggest, if you're able, to switch to hostap.  I maintain both of the packages, but I'll be doing more thorough testing with hostap now because I use it and it's way better wink

Re: kernel 2.6.10 in [current]

are we talking about 2.6.10-3-ARCH? lol I think so, because if we are well my wireless stopped working, too.  Switching to a previous kernel, like the one that is posted on this thread.  S0o00o thanks for the Link dUdE.

Yes, I am using the latest, and wireless is still working.  However, I am using a dual-boot machine, and whenever I boot into windows I have to remove the device and then plug it in again.  When I go back to linux I have to do the same thing.  If I just keep booting up in one of those, then I dont have to do that pop-out/pop-in thing.

A bit odd.  But did you update wlan26-ng at the same time you updated the kernel?  Thats what I had to do.

Re: kernel 2.6.10 in [current]

I didn't update that package and I tried looking for it and it's not in the repos.  I just updated the kernel along with a bunch of other stuff and I don't recall seing and update for wlna26-ng.  When I booted into the new kernel, the interet just didn't work...... bUt I'll look into this  bit more...
