    Default Tumbleweed and networking (on Atheros cards)

    On 2 laptops, both with Atheros Wifi cards, I'm experiencing a serious drop in network performance with the Tumbleweed packages installed (max 10 MBit/sec). Probably the 2.6.38 kernel, which holds the driver. Switched back to 11.4's packages and network performance is OK again (max 40 MBit/sec). All this on the same Netgear router.

    Anyone else seeing this?

    HA! i just figured out why the devs launched Tumbleweed (with such a
    cool name)--it's just to get more people to TEST more software more
    often, and faster..

    good idea!

    maybe with Tumbleweed and a string of Ms and RCs, 12.1 will be ready for
    use when released (like 9.3 was)..

    No help here it seems, maybe this is one to report on the Tumbleweed/Factory mailing list.

    Switched my last laptop to Stumbleweed, with Atheros wifi, today and can't connect to wifi, at all :-(

    Back to 11.4 with this one.

    You too should report this on the Tumbleweed/factory mailing list. That's how the developers get to know they need to look at things.

    OK. I'll hold my nose and return to the mailing list dark ages! No wonder they can't get things right :-(

    It's a cultural thing.
    But they do get the distros out, so worthy of praise IMHO.

    Different people use different tools to get things done - most developers
    seem to be more efficient with mailing lists. Don't knock them for their
    choice of tool, respect that they know how they work most efficiently and
    have adopted tools that let them do that.

    Consider me properly chastised :-)

    I get a little too frustrated at times.

    I do greatly appreciate all the devs hard work but I LOATHE mailing lists. Thought I was done with them 15 years ago :-)

    We all do from time to time - part of the human condition. :-)

    I tend to subscribe to mailing lists through gmane.org - since I use
    NNTP, I can access the mailing lists as newsgroups, which I find is more
    to my liking. They do also have a web interface, though I don't know how
    much you can do through it. You might check it out.
