firmware_helper logs misleading error message
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:43 EST
Description of problem:
The firmware_helper in FC5 (from udev-084-13.fc5.2) always logs the name of the
firmware file on error. If the helper failed to open the device (/sys/%s/data),
the error message in the logfile suggests that there is something wrong with the
firmware file, rather than the devpath.
Always, if you have a driver that requires firmware download but does not always
correctly present a "data" interface in /sys/%s/data.
