As part of my testing of the 11.3 Mx releases, I attempt to connect from my
laptop to my AP using all my devices. In 11.3 M4, it worked with drivers rtl8187
and b43; however, my Dell DW1450, which uses p54usb, could not connect. It could
scan, but it was clearly only doing a passive scan as only channel 1 was seen.
My conclusion is that it cannot transmit.
In further testing, that same kernel RPM also failed on 11.2; whereas my
home-built 2.6.34-rc2 kernel works. To further complicate matters, after I
downloaded the openSUSE version of 2.6.33-6.3 source, and built it on 11.2, it
worked. I then suspected a difference between gcc 4.4 and 4.5; however, I built
that version on 11.3 M4 using gcc 4.5.0 and it worked.
AFAICT, the only bad version is the one in the Factory repo. Both x64_64 and
i386 architectures have been tested. I have no idea what could have happened,
but I will certainly be watching to see if the issue is cleared.
