Open Slate Project
Not available, but it is 8.0 GENERIC i386.
The wi driver triggers panic bringing up interface. Using wlan clone eliminates panic but will not connect to my ssid. Interface will go up without ssid specified but ifconfig wlan0 scan just hangs. Same card has worked fine under 7.x until last weekend when I installed 8.0 on same notebook.

Insert Lucent Gold Card wifi card.
ifconfig wi0 up (system will panic)

Insert Lucent Gold Card wifi card.
ifconfig wlan create wlandev wi0
ifconfig wlan0 scan (will hang, no output, stops on ctrl-c)
ifconfig wlan0 ssid MYNET
ifconfig wlan0 (will show ssid set but no carrier)
ifconfig wlan0 up (still no carrier)
