Description Peter Kashou 2004-06-02 18:13:56 UTC
cisco-aironet-client-utils has been correctly updated to the new Cisco 2.1 app/driver version, but the subsequent mpi350-driver ebuild has not been updated. Please create a new ebuild for the mpi350 driver.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.emerge sync
2.emerge -av mpi350-driver

Actual Results:  
Only version 2.0 is available

Expected Results:  
Seeing the 2.1 ebuild there instead.

I don't maintain mpi350-driver and don't have the hardware to do so... I *do* have the distfiles, provided it uses the acu drivers... but without hardware to test it... I can't do much...

Are you willing to tets my ebuilds?  If so, are you willing to be a point of contact for the ebuild from now until all life as we know it shall cease?  *grin*
Comment 2 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-08-11 07:51:41 UTC
This ebuild needs a maintainer.

Comment 4 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-08-11 07:56:28 UTC
The ebuild has RESTRICT="fetch" and needed files for the old version are not
available on Cisco website any more (Bug 66631).

Unless someone can maintain this ebuild, it should be removed from portage b/c
it is useless. Marking as a blocker. 
Comment 5 Chris Gianelloni (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-08-12 10:31:00 UTC
The MPI driver in the 2.1 download does not work with 2.6 kernels and needs to
be ported.  I've looked into it, but feel it is too much work that isn't
supported by upstream.  The driver should be removed.
Comment 6 Chris Gianelloni (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-09-02 07:50:33 UTC
This package is scheduled for removal on September 9th, unless a maintainer can
be found, along with patches, as the in-kernel version of the driver is more
Comment 7 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-01-27 03:25:05 UTC
No longer in portage, closing.
