Description Jukka Ketelaars 2004-10-16 15:20:40 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041012 Firefox/0.10.1 Description of problem: After running up2date today hotplug firmware loading for the ipw2100 stopped working. Neither during init, nor after the system has started up does the firmware load succeed. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): hotplug-2004_04_01-6 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. install ipw2100 driver (0.56) 2. boot system 3. modprobe ipw2100 Actual Results: ipw2100: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2100 Network Driver, 0.56 ipw2100: Copyright(c) 2003-2004 Intel Corporation ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:02:02.0[A] -> GSI 5 (level, low) -> IRQ 5 ipw2100: 0000:02:02.0: Detected at mem: 0x90000000-0x90000FFF -> e0ea4000, irq: 5 divert: allocating divert_blk for eth1 eth1: Using hotplug firmware load. eth1: Firmware 'ipw2100-1.3.fw' not available or load failed. eth1: ipw2100_get_firmware failed: -2 eth1: Failed to power on the adapter. eth1: Failed to start the firmware. divert: freeing divert_blk for eth1 Expected Results: Firmware should have been loaded. Additional info: I have the firmware files at both the new (/lib/firmware) as the old (/usr/lib/hotplug/firmware) locations. I have tried this with older kernels and older versions of the ipw2100 and the same problem always appears (note: these were also combinations that used to work). The strange thing is that the current version of hotplug has been installed on my system since 2004-10-6 and has worked fine, so I think it may actually be another component that is interfering. The change must be very recent as the last time I ran a complete up2date was 2004-10-14 and up to today it worked fine both during and after init (today is 2004-10-16). I have no idea as to how to attack this problem. If you have any suggestions on how to analyze it, please let me know.

This is a udev bug.

I'm running udev-038-2

I have the same error using the ipw2200 driver output of 'modprobe ipw2200' to /var/log/messages: Oct 17 20:00:34 odin kernel: ipw2200: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200/2915 Network Dr iver, 0.11 Oct 17 20:00:34 odin kernel: ipw2200: Copyright(c) 2003-2004 Intel Corporation Oct 17 20:00:34 odin kernel: ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:02:03.0[A] -> GSI 7 (level , low) -> IRQ 7 Oct 17 20:00:34 odin kernel: ipw2200: Detected Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection Oct 17 20:00:44 odin kernel: ipw2200: ipw2200_boot.fw load failed Oct 17 20:00:44 odin kernel: ipw2200: Unable to load firmware: 0xFFFFFFFE Oct 17 20:00:44 odin kernel: ipw2200: failed to register network device Oct 17 20:00:44 odin kernel: ipw2200: probe of 0000:02:03.0 failed with error -5 Oct 17 20:00:44 odin wait_for_sysfs: either wait_for_sysfs (udev 038) need s an update to handle the device '/class/firmware/0000:02:03.0' properly (4) or the sysfs-support of your device's driver needs to be fixed, please report to <l firstname.lastname@example.org>

Please retry with udev-039

Had the same problem with the ipw2200-driver. udev-039 works fine!
Comment 7 Jukka Ketelaars 2004-10-18 14:42:33 EDT
udev-039 also fixed this for ipw2100.
