Default Bug#507663: ARtem Onair ComCard 11"-variation - the story continues...

Hello again!

It took some time, but finally Pavel Roskin took mercy on me...
After I sent him some lines of the kern.log (with the driver activated
for my pcmcia-card), he wrote to me:

---------------------------------------------------------------------

> kernel: [ 253.727624] eth1: Firmware determined as Lucent/Agere 8.42

OK, then only orinoco_cs needs to be patched. I'm submitting the patch
now.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

and this seems to be the patch:

I guess, this is only committed for the newest kernel in development?
Maybe this has also to be added to the Debian-Kernel?
Well, I guess you guys should know what to do with this, I just wanted
to let you know. If you are interesting in all the interesting lines
of my kern.log I sent to Pavel, please look at the end of this post.

Although this is a big step forward, this doesn't mean that the card is
working perfectly - the driver is loading and I can scan (at least some
time), but still I wasn't able to connect to an AP or even change the
channel.

I splitted the kernel log into two sections. The first one is what
happens, when I plug in the card. The second are some messages I get a
few minutes later. Maybe someone knows, what's happening here.

I'm still hoping that I can use my card with debian lenny...

His patch was submitted a few days ago, but hasn't been accepted
yet:

You can watch for its inclusion here:
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=history;f=drivers/net/wireless/orinoco/orinoco_cs.c

Have you notified upstream of this issue? Hopefully they can work with
you to get this issue resolved upstream and we can include the
necessary changes in the lenny kernel.

Not explicitly. I sent Pavel the suspicious second part of my kern.log,
too. But I got no reaction from him. This could be, because I introduced
my problem with "I found a missing modalias" and not "I have a problem
with the driver itself".
By the way: I plugged the card today into another laptop using ubuntu
8.10 (kernel 2.6.27) and I didn't get those messages. But I still can't
change the channel. So, the messages and the not-functioning channel
change seems to have nothing to do with each other.

I see.
The responsibilities are not so clear to me. The problem in
understanding is: The developers are working on 2.6.29 and I'm using
Debian with kernel 2.6.26 - Well, I thought, the orinoco_cs driver could
already be fixed upstream. I have no idea. I just know, that my card
doesn't work with Debian Lenny...

Some news, again!

The error messages doesn't seem to appear EVERY time. Today I plugged
the card into one of my Debian Lenny laptops and I didn't get an error
message...

O.k.!

Then another frightening news: I found a bugreport on Ubuntu
http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=2154534&postcount=18
and it says, that there isn't any support of wpa_supplicant for the
orinoco_cs driver, because the firmware doesn't allow it. So, the
question is: Shall I send another bugreport to wpa_supplicant? Or shall
I blame the firmware/driver?

Greetings

Hi,
The next release of Debian (6.0, code name Squeeze) will be based
on 2.6.32. Please test the current 2.6.32 from unstable/testing.
The patch by Pavel Roskin you mentioned has been merged in the mean
time and there's been more work on that driver, so we should evaluate
the current status.

The 2.6.32 kernel is available from packages.debian.org and can
be installed in both Debian stable, testing and unstable
installations.

Thanks,
Moritz

Fortunately, I have already installed debian testing on my laptop, so
there was no problem checking it out.

Somehow, I still can't connect to a WPA-encrypted WLAN. The
installation script (of the kernel?) told me there could be a problem
with missing firmware but after reboot with 2.6.32 the card was able to
scan for APs. Also, dmesg didn't print out any suspicious messages so I
assume a firmware is loaded.

dmesg:
orinoco 0.15 (David Gibson <hermes@gibson.dropbear.id.au>, Pavel Roskin

orinoco_cs 1.0: WEP supported, 104-bit key

ifconfig lists the device correctly as eth2 (although I wish, it was
marked as a wlan* device). lspci strangely doesn't list it - although my
other WLAN-card is?!? Maybe it isn't because it's an old
16bit-PCMCIA-card?

O.k. that's all about my card. Ask me if you want to know more about
it...

The kernel doesn't work too good on my Thinkpad A20p. It seems to
crash randomly after a few minutes. This is my third attempt to write
an email to you, but this time with a self-compiled 2.6.33-kernel. I
guess I got to check out the new 2.6.34-kernel from the debian
experimental repository, too!
