    I'm pretty sure I'm doing something stupid here but I did RTFM a few times! I'm working with a StarEast IXDP425, I compiled the drivers exactly as instructed in the INSTALL file and put the AP firware drivers in /usr/lib/firmware/hotplug/ which is where the firmware agent looks.
    The problem comes in when i type:
    # modprobe firmware_class
    I get the error:
    modprobe: module firmware_class not found.
    modprobe: failed to load module firmware_class

    what am I missing here?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated
    Thank you

     
    • I read this on the IPW2200 client project; it seems similar to your problem.  The solution is:

      You are missing CONFIG_FW_LOADER ("Userspace firmware loading support")
      in the kernel config.

      I think you may get more help if you use the mailing list instead of this thread.
