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
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.
