Description of problem:
When i try to load iwl4965 driver using modprobe doesn't works. I have verified that it isn't blacklisted under /etc/modprobe.d like in rhel5.0.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
iwl4965-firmware-4.44.17-1.noarch and kernel-2.6.18-92.1.6.el5.x86_64
Steps to Reproduce:
2.insert "alias wlan0 iwl4965" in modprobe.conf
Doesn't works and returns this error:
iwl4965: Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN driver for Linux, 1.2.22ks
iwl4965: Copyright(c) 2003-2007 Intel Corporation
iwl4965: Detected Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN
iwl4965: iwlwifi-4965-1.ucode firmware file req failed: Reason -2
iwl4965: Could not read microcode: -2
iwl4965: probe of 0000:03:00.0 failed with error -2
As a Sam Sharpe says on rhel5-list:
https://www.redhat.com/archives/rhelv5-list/2008-July/msg00119.html, bug is
solved doing a soflink like this:
ln -s /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-4965.ucode /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-4965-1.ucode
Can this be fixed in a next release of iwl4965-firmware package??
There alread is a next release of the firmware package. Please update it from
the Supplementary CD.
Sorry John, but under supplementary channel anly appears same buggy package ...
Others seems to have been able to get it. What are you doing to attempt the update?
I have tried now and I only see previous version ...
Could you be more specific about _what_ you are trying?
Created attachment 311590 [details]
Yes, as you can see in this attachment, supplementary channel for rhel5 server
x86_64 only shows previous version: iwl4965-firmware-4.44.17-1.noarch
I am told that RHN has resolved the issue regarding availability of that
package in the proper channel. Please try the update process again!
Many thanks John. I have already downloaded new iwl-firmware package.
