Re: modulate ipw2100

In fact, my problem is the same one as that of alanyih, although the modules are different (ipw2100 and ipw2200).

The solution suggested on the page of the ipw2100 does not function.

Certain old men forums recommend to use another version of udev. But that does not seem any more to be problematic with the recent versions.

ACPI is necessary to make function the chart, but it is installed.

Generally the problem is solved easily by installing the firmwares at the good place. I tested several of them:
Nothing made there...

Except dmesg, which is avarre in information, I do not know how to trace the source of the problem.

Does somebody have an idea?

Re: modulate ipw2100

I found!

It is udev which is the cause of this problem:

the file /etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev-default.rules contains:
# firmware class requests
SUBSYSTEM=="firmware", ACTION=="add", RUN+="firmware.sh"

find / -name 'firmware.sh'
=> does not exist...

to solve that it is enough to make:

wget http://www.us.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/kernel/hotplug/udev-120.tar.gz
tar -xvf udev-120.tar.gz
mkdir /lib/udev
cp ./udev-120/extras/firmware/firmware.sh /lib/udev
mkdir /lib/firmware
cd /lib/firmware
tar -xvf /chemin/vers/mon/firmware.tgz
modprobe ipw2100

And it goes!

It will probably be necessary to add /lib/udev/firmware.sh in the package udev, and to create the repertory /lib/firmware by the same occasion (that will avoid us seeking or putting the firmware).

Re: modulate ipw2100


Just to announce that Erjo modified the receipt udev to include firmware.sh, that the package was updated (121) and that the firmware are quite now charged.
