I currently have two kernel-module-packages locally which contain the
drivers for the ipw200 WLAN-Cards used in Centrino Notebooks.
I'm currently a bit undecided were to submit them and in with form. My
problem is the firmware that is needed by the driver in order to work.
It has a special redistribution license. For details see:
This is not acceptable for fedora.us (or fedora core) AFAICS (or am I
wrong here?). It is AFAICS for livna.org
(not sure). So I have the
1. Submit the ipw200 packages and the needed firmwares both to
2a. Submit the drivers to fedora.us and the firmware to livna.org
the driver can't require the firmwares in this case. Problematic.
2b. Submit the drivers to fedora.us and ignore the firmware. So the user
needs to get the firmwares on it's own.
I currently tend to 1., but I'd like to here comments from others (you!)
on it. Thanks.
P.S.: Yes, I know there is already a (currently outdated) ipw2100
P.P.S.: Yes, atrpms also has a package AFAIK
