I can test these if you like -- I run very custom kernels based on
zen sources mm and my own patchset -- though i can switch to 2.6.25-ARCH
if this would make it easier for you and also if its necessary to make
sure defaults are set properly -- i had to patch the original iwl4965 in
the ARCH default because it was a POS compared to current morton patch.
I would love to start giving pack to the community here since i've just
switched my machines save the production server from freebsd to archie
-- let me know how i can help. Hope you are well
It doesn't matter which kernel it is used on, the important thing is
that I know that the package works, meaning the firmware (ABI version 1
will suffice, there is no driver with version 2 anyway) is undamaged and
works. So simply install the new firmware, (re)load the driver and see
if it still connects to an AP.

This package contains both the 22.214.171.124 <http://126.96.36.199> (ABI
version 1) and 188.8.131.52 <http://184.108.40.206> (ABI version 2)
versions of the iwlwifi-4965-ucode. Current kernels require the ABI
version 1, but new compat-wireless and future kernels will need ABI
Again, I can't test this, but if anyone can, please sign off. Damir
signed off the last version for me on jabber (he's been quite busy,
so he couldn't really follow the mailing list).
If nobody can test this, I'd like to move this directly to core
instead of it sitting in testing for ages. Aaron?
