Don't rename the files! Find the ones it's asking for.

severity 689416 important
retitle 689416 Nonexistant files are asked for on Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 (802.11 a/b/g/n 3X3) Half Mini Card
thanks

Well, now the files

firmware-iwlwifi_0.36_all.deb
iwlwifi-6000g2b-6.ucode

iwlwifi-6000-4.ucode
iwlwifi-6000g2a-5.ucode

are in the root directory of an additional USB stick and the installer seems to find iwlwifi-6000-4.ucode.

However, as before, the installer still complaints about the missing
iwlwifi-6000-5.ucode

iwlwifi-6000-6.ucode

Actually, it turns out that despite complaints the wireless works.


The maintainer may modify the wording so that you can find the file easier, in
case one doesn't read doc and don't download firmware.tar.gz...

So downgrading severity.

I did all that. But I did not get that the installation could continue anyway. And you did not get what file are exactly asked for.

Thus, upgrading severity.

Jaakov.

That's the kind of information useful in a bug report "despite getting files
from firmware.tar.gz downloaded from ..".

[...]

The iwlwifi driver currently supports firmware API versions 4-6 for
these devices. It will request the file for the latest supported
version and then fall back to earlier versions. However, the latest
version that has actually been released is 4, so we expect the requests
for versions 6 and then 5 to fail.

I assume the installer reports any failed request, and it is probably
not easy to detect that this failure is harmless. Therefore I've
committed a patch to the driver which we can carry until this is sorted
out upstream.

Ben.
