Hi all,

I use Fedora 8 under my laptop Thinkpad x40, kernel vesion:
But I have a problem with the wireless card when I run Fedora 8, actually
the wireless card can work well under WinXP. When I boot my laptop under
Fedora 8, it always show me in the log file:

ipw2200: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200/2915 Network Driver, 1.2.2kmprq
ipw2200: Copyright(c) 2003-2006 Intel Corporation
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:02:02.0[A] -> GSI 21 (level, low) -> IRQ 22
ipw2200: Detected Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection
ipw2200: ipw2200-bss.fw request_firmware failed: Reason -2
ipw2200: Unable to load firmware: -2
ipw2200: failed to register network device
ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:02:02.0 disabled
ipw2200: probe of 0000:02:02.0 failed with error -5

Does any idea to fix such problem? Thanks.


Hi Eason,

Did you try to boot the linux kernel without the acpi option ? If yes, does
it change something ?
I do have such Wireless adapter ( ipw2200 ) on a hp nc8000 running the same
kernel and it doesn't generate any conflict messages like yours. Could you
please also check the release for the ipw2200-firmware RPM package ( rpm - q
ipw2200-firmware ) ?

Thanks for your feedback.
