Subject: [gentoo-user] Loading a Firmware Module By hand?
Date: Sun, 17 Dec 2017 05:34:24
1 Hi,
3 I have an ath10k_pci device that I'm trying to get hooked to the
4 Internet, but I'm having some strange issues. It is trying to load the
5 2.1 firmware, but I don't think that is the proper firmware for the
6 interface to have; I think it ought to be loading the 3.0 module, but
7 am not quite sure on that either, or how I could go about injecting
8 that into the modprobe; I wasn't able to pinpoint the firmware blob
9 the ISO was using, so that wasn't much of a pointer in the right
10 direction either. I see that the 3.0 blob does exist in
11 /lib/firmware/ath10k/QCABLEFAGD/HW3.0, but there are many bin files,
12 so choosing the right one is a bit tricky by the looks of things.
13 Earlier today, I had read the Gentoo wiki on the topic, which
14 suggested that I compile the blob into the kernel itself, but the link
15 they gave only described the advantages and disadvantages of modular
16 kernels and how to drop kmod if you're using a moduleless kernel. Does
17 anybody have any insight on this matter?
19 Thanks,
21 Hunter
