Somebody in the thread at some point said:
| Hi List,
| Is anyone has any idea about why the HAL cannot get eth0 on gta02
| with current kernel and rootfs.
| In gta02 HAL detect usb0 well, but not the eth0.
| Is something has to be added on HAL fdi or there something missed
| with the wifi driver?
Hi Tick -
I don't know hal well, but grepping my Fedora fdi for eth, net, wlan
does not give relevant hits so I don't think it makes the problem.
But I wonder if the issue is we do not use a normal 80211 stack like
mac80211 which takes care about announcing the network interface somehow
so that hal understands a new interface has come o can enumerate it
somehow by IOCTL (WLAN does love IOCTLs). Does it maybe change the
situation if you restart hal after the WLAN network interface is up?
I guess you need to go look at hal sources to get the definitive clue.
