 When I try to plug in the USB zd1211 nic, the zd1211rw driver is the

 So I cannot even use the vendor driver, and I am totally stuck.

You can tell udevd not to autoload kernel modules by putting
them in the blacklist file. It is /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist on my system
but maybe somewhere else under /etc/modprobe* . This is the standard
way of trying alternative kernel-module drivers - put all of them
in blacklist, and do modprobe explicitly to load each of them.

I have both the vendor driver and the rw driver for this,
and another alternative pairs of drivers for a different wireless chip
on another machine.

 solution. Could anybody help in this point ?


I am surprised you feel *entitled* to be disappointed. You have the source code
of two drivers and you have the hardware, which is exactly the same situation
as me. Feel free to look inside.

I am not involved with either driver but just happened to have spent some time 
with the vendor driver because I needed master mode, which the rw driver does
not provide - and I posted the patch a few weeks ago. I have spent a little time
tracing the code path in the rw driver for you - which you could have done
yourself.

Re: [zd1211-devs] Problem when trying ad-hoc patch for zd1211rw

2008-07-15 Thread Mark Ryden
Hello,
I added:
blacklist zd1211rw
to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
and , when there zd1201rw and zd1201 modules are not loaded,
I tried plugging the zd1211 USB nic.
None of the two drivers were insmoded.

lsmod | grep zd
gives nothing.

I wonder: which kernel are you using ?
uname -r gives 2.6.25-14.fc9.x86_64 on my machine.

When plugging the usb nic I see this in the syslog:

kernel: usb 1-4: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 5
kernel: usb 1-4: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
kernel: usb 1-4: New USB device found, idVendor=0ace, idProduct=1211
kernel: usb 1-4: New USB device strings: Mfr=16, Product=32, SerialNumber=0
kernel: usb 1-4: Product: USB2.0 WLAN
kernel: usb 1-4: Manufacturer: ZyDAS

but that's all I get.

Any idea? I am bewildered.

Regards,
Mark

Argh, the whole point of the blacklist file is that it
stops udevd from loading specific kernel modules for you.
So udevd doesn't do it for you and you have to modprobe
yourself, manually.

Hmm, and you did not mention that you are using x86_64 - that's a lot of
difference, since x86 32-bit is still mainstream, and you may be between
a rock and a hard place because I know the vendor driver
has some 64-bit portability issues. On the machine
where I use the vendor driver it is stock 2.6.25.1 on slackware, 32-bit.
On the other machine where I have dual drivers for another wireless
chip, it is 2.6.25.10-91.fc9.x86_64, I believe.

2008-07-11 Thread Mark Ryden
Thanks!

  I am looking for a more accurate answer. What should I do with this
firmware problem ? I do not want to delve into the zd1211rw code trying to
solve it.
Didn't other people encounter this problem ?  Maybe the zd1211rw developers can
try to hint as to what the problem is ?

Or maybe should I forward this message to the linux wireless mailing list ?

I am quite stuck with this problem,as you can see.

 It is as it says, can't load firmware. If you had not
 used this USB nic
 on a machine before, it is likely you did not have them
 installed.
 They should be under /lib/firmware/zd1211 . In whatever
 mode,
 the driver still needs the firmware.
