Description Otavio R. Piske 2021-10-05 07:59:56 UTC
Description of problem:

Trying to load the firmware from the package iwl7260-firmware-1: on my motherboard Gigabyte X570 I AORUS PRO WIFI/X570 I which has an Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX 200 device fails. 

Looking at the dmesg output, I have the following messages: 

iwlwifi 0000:06:00.0: Direct firmware load for iwlwifi-cc-a0-64.ucode failed with error -2
iwlwifi 0000:06:00.0: minimum version required: iwlwifi-cc-a0-39
iwlwifi 0000:06:00.0: maximum version supported: iwlwifi-cc-a0-64

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Install iwl7260-firmware-1: on a system with an Intel AX 200 device. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. sudo dnf install -y iwl7260-firmware-
2. reboot 
3. check if the wireless network is online (probably not)
4. check the dmesg output for messages complaining about version supported

Actual results:
- the wireless device is not working because the firmware cannot be loaded

Expected results:
- the wireless device should be working

Additional info:
- the work-around for this problem is to downgrade the package to version 122 (ie.: sudo dnf install -y iwl7260-firmware-

I confirm that removing iwlax2xx-firmware and rebooting after that solves the problem:
sudo dnf remove iwlax2xx-firmware.noarch
