Summary: When Atheros card detected, give a hint about binary
drivers
Product: openSUSE 10.2
Version: Beta 1 plus
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Enhancement
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Installation
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: dominique.leuenberger@xxxxxxxxxxxxx
QAContact: jsrain@xxxxxxxxxx


When an Atheros card is detected in a notebook, the user needs to install the
madwifi package, which for known reasons are not distributed with openSUSE.

It would be a very nice hint for the user if he could get a small information
about the website http://en.opensuse.org/Atheros_madwifi in this case.

The solution would be somehow similiar to the one used in xine, about video
playing.

If it can not be included in YAST in that short time, at least a comment in the
release notes should make it.
