I just bought a new Lenovo T61. It comes with the Intel 4965 wifi nic.
Unfortunately, the supplied driver for this card does not work with kernels
above 2.6.24, and RC1 comes with 2.6.25.
There is a specific posting at Intel’s site:‘Intel® Wireless WiFi Link
4965AGN’(http://www.intellinuxwireless.org/?p=iwlwifi) that says that the
supplied driver does NOT work with Linux kernels 2.6.24 and above. Trying
the instructions to download and make a new driver don’t work for me, I get
errors when I try to do it.
Does anyone know if there will be an updated driver in the general release?
I really like what I’ve seen so far of 11.0 - very fast, especially with
Yast, and would hate to have to back-level to 10.3.
