Bug#410385: same problem

My network card stopped working too. Maybe it is the same problem?

modprobe -r ipw3945 gives:

2007-02-12 16:39:23: WARNING: No prior instance running.
FATAL: Module ipw3945 is in use.
FATAL: Error running remove command for ipw3945

and ps gives:

112       5038  0.0  0.0   1728   376 pts/1    S    16:42   0:00 /sbin/ipw3945d --pid-file=/var/run/ipw3945d/ipw3945d.pid --quiet --log-file=/var/log/ipw3945d/ipw3945d.log

There is a file /etc/modprobe.d/ipw3945d which should make sure that ipw3945d is
killed before unnloading the module ipw3945, but it doesn't work.

The contents of /etc/modprobe.d/ipw3945d:

install ipw3945 modprobe --ignore-install ipw3945 && /etc/init.d/ipw3945d modprobe-start
remove  ipw3945 /etc/init.d/ipw3945d modprobe-stop && modprobe -r --ignore-remove ipw3945

Killing ipw3945d manually and then loading it with "modprobe ipw394", loads the
module and launches ipw3945. However, ps gives

root      5217  0.0  0.0   1724   348 pts/1    S    16:49   0:00 /sbin/ipw3945d --quiet 

and not "/sbin/ipw3945d --pid-file=/var/run/ipw3945d/ipw3945d.pid --quiet
--log-file=/var/log/ipw3945d/ipw3945d.log", as should be the result of "/etc/init.d/ipw3945d
modprobe-start" which is the command issued in /etc/modprobe.d/ipw3945d.
