Description Sam Shyamani 2022-09-22 20:44:30 UTC

I have found what I believe is a spelling error on the iwlwifi man page. Detailed below

iwlwifi will be a successor to iwm(4) and may superseed that driver in
     the future.

Should read:
iwlwifi will be a successor to iwm(4) and may SUPERCEDE that driver in
     the future.

Caps just to indicate the incorrectly spelled word.

Hi Sam,

Indeed, it looks like a common typo. However, it looks like your version is also not entirely correct or wide use:


We probably need to use "superseded" instead.

Being a non-native speaker, I am definitely not an expert in this area though.

For the sake of completeness, I c&p a patch here

 It still complements the

 driver which supports older chipsets.
