Description

This update for the compat-wireless kernel modules provides many fixes and enhancements :

  • Fix potential crash problem in ath9k. (CVE-2014-2672, bnc#871148)

  • Fix improper updates of MAC addresses in ath9k_htc. (bnc#851426, CVE-2013-4579)

  • Fix stability issues in iwlwifi. (bnc#865475)

  • Improve support for Intel 7625 cards in iwlwifi. (bnc#51021) Installation notes :

New driver modules may conflict with old modules, which are automatically loaded from the initrd file after reboot. To apply this maintenance update correctly, the following steps need to be executed on a SLEPOS system :

  • Rebuild image

  • Create specific scDistributionContainer with newly built initrd and kernel

  • Put the updated system image in it as a scPosImage object Alternatively, you can use a kernel parameter to enforce using the kernel from the system image :

  • Rebuild image

  • Set the kernel parameter FORCE_KEXEC, by adding the scPxeFileTemplate object under the relevant scPosImage object, with the scKernelParameters attribute containing 'FORCE_KEXEC=yes'.
