Default corrupted firmware-linux-nonfree 0.26

Hi,

From everything I can find the versions of firmware-linux-nonfree for
sid and unstable (0.26) contain corrupted versions of agere_sta_fw.bin
and agere_ap_fw.bin version 9.48


Does someone know how I can the uncorrupted versions of these files?
When I try to download them from the sites I find IceWeasel gives me a
zero length file.


TIA,

Paul Scott

This link should give you access to the firmware directly from the
kernel.org git tree:

http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/dwmw2/linux-firmware.git;a=tree

Make sure to use the "raw" link to the right of the names of the files
that you need. According to the "history" links, these two files were
added to the kernel in 2008 and have not been changed since.

They are also identical to the files in the Debian
firmware-linux-nonfree package.

Are you sure this is true for agere_sta_fw.bin? My wireless is
currently broken with version 0.26 of firmware-linux-nonfree. It worked
with the previous version. Is there another step after upgrading
firmware-linux-nonfree to get the agere driver installed.


There are some threads out there about corrupted agere*.bin files
because of a file transfer problem..


Thanks,

Paul

Yes. I downloaded the firmware-linux-nonfree package, cloned the
linux-firmware git tree and compared the files. Here are the sha1sums:

0c58a68058e2ef23e3e7f3546c40afb536d924d4 agere_ap_fw.bin
0fff9e1b61ab735e698d6390ffd60d0247ae1a0b agere_sta_fw.bin

That at least got me a copy of the file. Thanks.

Installing the above version of agere_sta_fw.bin elimated the
eth2: Lucent/Agere firmware doesn't support manual roaming
message but the card still doesn't associate.

Hopefully the relevant part of the log follows:

Admitting I don't know the whole process well enough: Is it possible
that the installing of firmware-linux-nonfree somehow doesn't properly
download the agere*.bin as described in this thread?


https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/315489

As I mention in my email at 2:30 putting agere_sta_fw.bin in
/lib/firmware does change the behavior of my wireless card.


Thanks,

Paul

I would kill NetworkManager and test whether your card can associate
with the AP if you set it up directly in /etc/network/interfaces. (Check
the output of"iwconfig eth2").

Also, try if "iwlist scan eth2" (as root) does list your AP correctly.

If you use apt to install the package, it will detect if the package is
corrupt and refuse to install it. If you download the package with a
browser and use dpkg to install it, then such corruption may go
unnoticed, however.

You can run "debsums firmware-linux-nonfree" and reinstall the package
if necessary.
