udev: ipw2200 firmware doesn't load
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:13 EST
Description of problem:
The ipw2200 WiFi card doesn't work, as the firmware doesn't load
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. modprobe ipw2200
Firmware doesn't load: Error -2
Just installing 070 works. Patch2 doesn't apply to the sources.
Hmm, there sould be no difference between 069 an 070 regarding this.
Does "rmmod ipw2200" followed by a "modprobe ipw2200" always fail, or is it only
an issue on bootup?
With the failing setup, care to add:
to the udev rules and run "udevmonitor" to get the exact event sequence including
timing of kernel+udev events.
This seems to work fine for me with newest rpms. Please re-open with more
information if this issue is not resolved with an update to current rpms.
