With it built in, I wonder if the kernel tries to load the firmware before root is mounted ?


That must be the case here :-( maybe it will be fixed in later kernel versions

Hi all,

i came around this issue today while installing a brand new gentoo on my old lenovo T61 notebook

lspci output:
Code:

Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or ARN [Kedron] Network Connection (rev 61)


dmesg output:
Code:

iwl4965 0000:03:00.0: request for firmware file 'iwlwifi-4965-2.ucode' failed.
iwl4965 0000:03:00.0: no suitable firmware found!


But the named file exists in /lib/firmeware. So i tryed to unlode the relevant module und reloaded it again and voila that worked as a work-around!
Code:

modprobe -r iwl4965
modprobe iwl4965


Funny that this problem does still somehow exist. The kernel of the used gentoo minimal was 3.8.13-gentoo i686:
