confirmed or the doc is outdated, udev is not involved in issues, just clean up z25_persistent-net.rules, managed mode with RSN EAP-PSK fine but master mode not selectable here with ucode5.fw:

My problem was actually related to udev.  After removing the line from
the /etc/udev/rules.d/z25_persistent-net.rules file, it booted properly.

I had this in it:
SUBSYSTEM=="net", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTRS{address}=="00:0f:66:c6:91:12", NAME="eth3"

And udev now added:
SUBSYSTEM=="net", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTR{address}=="00:0f:66:c6:91:12", ATTR{type}=="1", NAME="wlan0"

And it seems the kernel get confused when I tried to talk to wmaster0 as
if it were wlan0.

Anyway, if you have a different problem, I think then atleast 465775
should get reassigned to udev.


well master mode is not available at this time due to upstream wireless stack limitations.

for udev i've said "clean up" and not "add something". without Your addition it will work.
this cannot be done automatically since b43 is not bcm43xxx for udev. how should it know?
and _never_ add manually created stuff to (partly) autogenerated config files in ".d" directories!
and you cannot "talk" to wmaster0, this is just a driver internal device without wexts like madwifi's wifi0.

suggest CLOSE.
