Bug Description

Binary package hint: linux-firmware

When I boot up I get the following errors:

[ 35.912896] i2400m_usb 2-1.3:1.0: WiMAX interface wmx0 (00:1d:e1:36:0b:56) ready
[ 35.914152] i2400m_usb 2-1.3:1.0: fw i6050-fw-usb-1.5.sbcf: cannot load file: -2
[ 35.914179] i2400m_usb 2-1.3:1.0: Could not find a usable firmware image
[ 35.914200] i2400m_usb 2-1.3:1.0: cannot bootstrap device: -2

But I only have these two firmware installed from the linux-firmware package:


I think the latest firmware needs to be added to the package from:

Others are also having this issue, as seen from this thread from the forums:

SRU Justification

Impact: Linux 2.6.35 requires new firmware files for some Intel wimax adapters

Patch Description: Add 2 new firmware files

There is no possibility for regression since both firmware files are new, e.g., i2400m-fw-usb-1.5.sbcf and i6050-fw-usb-1.5.sbcf

Accepted linux-firmware into maverick-proposed, the package will build now and be available in a few hours. Please test and give feedback here. See for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you in advance!

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed' to 'verification-done'.

If verification is not done by one week from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!

Tested. The firmware appears correctly, and the errors on bootup went away. Now I get this message:

WiMAX interface wmx0 . . . ready

Thank you for the help!
