Summary: ipw2200 driver loaded on boot cannot load firmware

Description Tomasz Sterna 2006-09-17 01:02:11 UTC
My genkernel created kernel detects and loads ipw2200 driver at system boot. Driver in turn tries to load firmware, failing obviously becouse udev isn't working yet.
rmmod ipw2200; modprobe ipw2200 - after system boot loads the driver and firmware just fine.

I'm using in-kernel ipw2200 driver (only in-kernel hibernates sucessfuly).

Do you have hotplug installed? If so, does the problem go away when you unmerge it?

Whoops, I commented to the wrong bug (#87103). Anyway, same thing here: Seems to work now with udev-103 IF I use CONFIG_PROTECT="-*" before upgrading. The cleanup of old configuration files does not seem to be properly sorted out, so removing configprotection completely fixes the problem.
Comment 4 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-11-29 09:28:54 UTC
Closing then.
