Description Christoph Höger 2007-07-23 10:29:43 UTC
Description of problem:
The iwl3945 driver does not work.

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

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rmmod iwl3945
2. modprobe iwl3945
3. take a look at the kernel log
Actual results:

iwl3945: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG/BG Network Connection driver for Linux,
iwl3945: Copyright(c) 2003-2007 Intel Corporation
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:03:00.0[A] -> GSI 17 (level, low) -> IRQ 21
PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:03:00.0 to 64
iwl3945: Detected Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection
iwl3945: Could not read microcode: -22
ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:03:00.0 disabled
iwl3945: probe of 0000:03:00.0 failed with error -22

Expected results:

It should just load and work.

Additional info:
It _may_ be acpi related somehow. I am using a R50 Thinkpad and my
/proc/acpi/ibm folder is missing too under the new kernel.
