It happens when >> you shut down the system, or hibernate. or apparently, if you do a manual reload (service network restart) as well. I went ahead and opted to try this kmod-ath5k. All the talk about it and all :) The driver seems to work quite well so far until (as you already said) I bring down the interface. At that point my whole laptop just locked up solid and I had to forcefully shut it down and start it up again using the power button. The mouse still moved but I could not click anything and hitting and keys (ctrl+alt+f1, ctrl+alt+delete, etc...) did nothing. I am definitely going back to madwifi snapshot for now but would like to use this rpm when it is stable. I can't wait for 5.4 release! I am hoping the new alsa sound driver in the next release will fix my sound issues as well. I have been reading that this card is fully supported by alsa (HDA and all) in the latest releases. I have never gotten any sound out of the digital side of this card only the analog device and that is poor.
