Description

About 15 minutes after I booted an XO onto a freshly-installed build 496, I tried executing 'iwconfig' and 'iwlist scan'. These simply hung after outputting lo, never getting to msh0 or eth0.

Marcelo, what's the current state?

Zack,

We have seen such problems in early testing but not recently.

Can you please edit /etc/modprobe.d/olpc.conf.dist and add the following line:

options libertas libertas_debug=0xffffffff

Then reboot the machine, reproduce the problem, and save the output of dmesg:

# dmesg > dmesg.out

Then attach dmesg.out to this bug entry?

Thanks
