Your other option is writing a userspace program that reads the firmware after the kernel has booted and patches it into the hardware.

You're trying to have the kernel itself load the firmware, and the EXTRA_FIRMWARE mechanism is how this is done. proxy linux # dmesg | grep eth0 [ 0.897559] r8169 0000:02:00.0: eth0: RTL8168d/8111d at 0xffffc90000360000, 1c:6f:65:20:3f:c6, XID 083000c0 IRQ 41 [ 70.453673] r8169 0000:02:00.0: eth0: unable to load firmware patch rtl_nic/rtl8168d-2.fw

Typical reasons are to keep the kernel image size down and to avoid having to recompile the kernel whenever a new firmware version is released. AFAIK firmware loading is only attempted once, when the driver is first initialized. > functionality of /lib/udev/firmware is controlled by USE=extras. Is there a specific reason why the r8169 driver cannot be loaded as a module? However, udevd is only started after the kernel is loaded, and therefore will only load firmware for drivers which are built as modules.

I disagree with that, all though I can see your reasoning. if it does not or the firmware is not preloaded at kernel build time as a blob, the driver requests for firmware. appropriate status is returned back to kernel and dispatched to the driver in your case the status is -2 (ENOENT) so it could be problem with either firmware blob file or Blogs Recent Entries Best Entries Best Blogs Blog List Search Blogs Home Forums HCL Reviews Tutorials Articles Register Search Search Forums Advanced Search Search Tags Search LQ Wiki Search Tutorials/Articles Search
