RE: Firewire ethernet on FC8



Pity about that is the mc I'm using is a laptop- so a couple of cheap nics is exactly possible... Good idea though.

Whats the eta on the porting then? And I think this ? has been asked before, but why was this support removed from fedora for the past 2 releases? I can get this support on freebsd so I thought it would be there for fedora, hence why I looked into it as a solution. It seems improbable that fedora would remove something that was previously available.
