Description Aaron Stone 2006-06-26 17:16:37 UTC
I'm bringing this separate issue over from bug #87103 -- newer udev's now register themselves as the firmware handler for the kernel, but the udev scripts don't include a reference to /sbin/firmware_helper by default.

I've added a /etc/udev/rules.d/99-firmware.rules with the one-liner and now,
finally, my ipw2200 works without a hitch. Huzzah! Could we get this into the
udev package? Thanks!

Yes, I need to add this...

Should be in 096.
