Description Qantic 2004-11-08 18:15:23 EST
Description of problem: Same problem as in BUG #136011 Detected Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection ipw2200_boot.fw load failed Unable to load firmware: 0xFFFFFFFE of course firmwares are in /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): i'm using the latest udev-039-10.FC3.1
Comment 1 Warren Togami 2004-11-08 18:30:22 EST
Have you tried /lib/firmware? That is the new standard location chosen by the upstream hotplug project.
Comment 2 Qantic 2004-11-08 18:38:55 EST
it works with /lib/firmware thanks.
Comment 3 Otto 2004-11-23 20:12:01 EST
My wireless has stopped working after update (with up2date) in November, 20, 2004. I have "ipw2200_boot.fw load failed" at /var/log/messages I have firmwares at /lib/firmware, /etc/firmware/ and /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware/ I have udev-039-10.FC3.2
Comment 4 Harald Hoyer 2004-11-24 04:15:42 EST
Otto: which kernel do you use?
Comment 5 Otto 2004-11-24 10:22:25 EST
At the moment of the problem the kernel was 2.6.9-1.667. Yesterday I installed kernel 2.6.9-1.678_FC3 to see if the problem happens on it. Now I have 2 kernels in my machine and the problem occurs in both.
Comment 6 Harald Hoyer 2004-11-24 10:37:45 EST
could you try udev-039-10.FC3.2, which should also be available in the updates?
Comment 7 Otto 2004-11-24 12:54:31 EST
I'm using it (see Additional Comment #3 above) $ rpm -q udev udev-039-10.FC3.2
Comment 8 Harald Hoyer 2004-11-25 04:27:46 EST
doh... could you try the version from the development tree? http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/development/
Comment 9 Otto 2004-11-25 15:44:27 EST
I made a upgrade to kernel-2.6.9-1.681_FC3 and the message "ipw2200_boot.fw load failed" didn't appear anymore at /var/log/messages, but the wireless didn't work and past +/- 2 hour after boot I got the error messages below at /var/log/messages. Then I made the suggested upgrade to udev-042-1 and got the same results (no "ipw2200_boot.fw load failed" message, wireless not working and error messages below past +/- 2 hours after boot) ERROR MESSAGES: Nov 25 11:00:35 n6320dl36 kernel: ipw2200: Fatal error Nov 25 11:00:35 n6320dl36 kernel: ipw2200: Start IPW Error Log Dump: Nov 25 11:00:35 n6320dl36 kernel: ipw2200: ERROR_DINOSTATUS_ERROR -1499879535 0x0001c2ac 0x00008af8 0x00000104 0x03806f3c 0x00000041 Nov 25 11:00:35 n6320dl36 kernel: ipw2200: ERROR_DMA_STATUS -1499879531 0x00027af0 0x00027c70 0x01540001 0x00000000 0x00000000 Nov 25 11:00:35 n6320dl36 kernel: ipw2200: ERROR_DMA_STATUS -1499879528 0x00028400 0x000287f0 0x00540001 0x00000000 0x00000001 Nov 25 11:00:35 n6320dl36 kernel: ipw2200: ERROR_DMA_STATUS -1499879524 0x00028000 0x000281e0 0x00540000 0x9c6a4200 0x00000002 Nov 25 11:00:35 n6320dl36 kernel: ipw2200: ERROR_DMA_STATUS -1499879520 0x00408000 0x00408000 0x30408200 0x00000082 0x00000003 Nov 25 11:00:35 n6320dl36 kernel: ipw2200: Start IPW Event Log Dump: Nov 25 11:00:35 n6320dl36 kernel: ipw2200: -1499880599 0x00000438 27 etc, etc,...

No more comments?
Comment 11 Thorsten Leemhuis 2004-12-08 10:38:09 EST
Hi guys! Otto, the ipw2200 driver is not in fedora core ATM. Where did you get it? BTW it works for me with this RPMS: http://www.leemhuis.info/files/fedorarpms/REPO.lvn/3/wlan/RPMS/ipw2200-firmware-2.0-0.lvn.5.noarch.rpm http://www.leemhuis.info/files/fedorarpms/REPO.lvn/3/wlan/RPMS/kernel-module-ipw2200-2.6.9-1.681_FC3-0.16-0.lvn.1.i686.rpm HTH
Comment 12 Otto 2004-12-19 12:26:23 EST
I got it from: ipw2200-0.17-16.rhfc3.at.i386.rpms: http://atrpms.net/dist/fc3/ipw2200/ ipw2200-firmware-2.1-4.at.noarch.rpms: http://atrpms.net/dist/common/ipw2200-firmware/ kernel-module-ipw2200-2.6.9-1.681_FC3-0.17-16.rhfc3.at.i686.rpms: http://atrpms.net/dist/fc3/ipw2200/
Comment 13 Thorsten Leemhuis 2004-12-19 12:36:35 EST
Hi Otto, thanks for the info. If you hav Problems with atrpms packages then atrpms bugzilla might be the right place: http://bugzilla.atrpms.net/ The packages/driver you refer are newer then my last post AFAICS. Do they still have the problem? And to see if this is a fedora core issue: Please remove the atrpms packages, install the current -715 kernel from updates-testing, install the firmware from ipw2200.sf.net manually to /lib/firmware and see if its a problem there also -- but I suspect it is cause it works fine for me.
Comment 14 Qantic 2004-12-20 16:50:47 EST
Hi, I confirm the driver and firmware from ipw2200.sf.net are working with the fedora kernel 2.6.9-1.681_FC3. You can also found a rpm and srpm with ipw2200-0.18 drivers and ipw2200-fw-2.1 firmware at http://www.qantic.com/fedora, if that can help you.
Comment 15 Daniel Hedblom 2005-01-20 12:11:10 EST
With the right firmware ipw2200 works just splendid in RHFC3 with the 2.6.10-1.741-FC3 kernel. The ipw2200 module is included in that version of the kernel but the firmware is not. The message ipw2200_boot.fw load failed is displayed when the wrong version of firmware is used or you dont have any firmware installed in /lib/firmware, maybe other errors report this to i dont know. The firmware i used with the kernel above is: v0.6-v0.16. Can anyone confirm this?
Comment 16 George 2005-02-03 07:11:07 EST
I think I know what the issue is. I am using 2.6.10-1.760_FC3 kernel udev-039-10.FC3.6 and at ATRPMS packages I downloaded from the link on the sourceforge page: ipw2200-firmware-2.2-5.at ipw2200-1.0.0-23.rhfc3.at ipw2200-kmdl-2.6.10-1.741_FC3-1.0.0-23.rhfc3.at When you look at the error message it is about ipw2200_boot.fw, however, the firmware in /lib/firmware is called ipw_2.2_boot.fw. I symlinked the boot, bss and ucode and it worked (evidence is this message:) George
Comment 17 Thorsten Leemhuis 2005-02-03 11:35:57 EST
Still wondering why this bug is still open and not closed as NOTABUG These *.at are all atrpms packages. If you have trouble -- go report at http://bugzilla.atrpms.net/ Fedora does not/can't ship the firmware files due to the license. If you install them correctly then is works (at least for me, some other people I know, and for you also it seems). So everything works from the fedora-standpoint AFAICS.
Comment 18 Harald Hoyer 2005-02-03 13:30:36 EST
just trying to be nice and help :)
Comment 19 Axel Thimm 2005-02-05 05:15:33 EST
George, in comment #16 you explicitely mention using kernel 2.6.10-1.760_FC3, but kmdls for 2.6.10-1.741_FC3. So you have been using the kernel's ipw2200 (which is <= 0.16) instead of 1.0.0. You need to get the kmdls matching your kernel. Use <favourite tool here> install ipw2200-kmdl-`uname -r` where favourite tool is yum/up2date/apt/smart. (P.S. I just found this bug by searching for atrpms in comments otherwise I would have commented earlier)
Comment 20 Gerald Hewes 2005-02-06 17:18:50 EST
I had the same comments as the person above. Could not get it worked util I changed the name of the firmware file in /lib/firmware -rw-r--r-- 2 root root 6472 Feb 6 16:22 ipw2200_boot.fw -rw-r--r-- 2 root root 166960 Feb 6 16:22 ipw2200_bss.fw -rw-r--r-- 2 root root 161568 Feb 6 16:22 ipw2200_ibss.fw -rw-r--r-- 2 root root 16312 Feb 6 16:22 ipw2200_ibss_ucode.fw -rw-r--r-- 2 root root 16334 Feb 6 16:22 ipw2200_ucode.fw -rw-r--r-- 2 root root 6472 Feb 6 16:22 ipw-2.2-boot.fw -rw-r--r-- 2 root root 166960 Feb 6 16:22 ipw-2.2-bss.fw -rw-r--r-- 2 root root 16334 Feb 6 16:22 ipw-2.2-bss_ucode.fw -rw-r--r-- 2 root root 161568 Feb 6 16:22 ipw-2.2-ibss.fw -rw-r--r-- 2 root root 16312 Feb 6 16:22 ipw-2.2-ibss_ucode.fw
Comment 21 Axel Thimm 2005-02-06 18:14:17 EST
rmmod ipw2200 and try modprobe -ns ipw2200 to see which ipw2200 module is being loaded. It is probably not the one from the packages you installed (they have /updates/ in their paths, while the kernel's has /kernel/). In that case you either have the wrong package for your kernel or a module-init-tools that does not honor the updates folder.
