Bug Description

Binary package hint: linux-firmware

SRU Justification:

Impact: The ath9k-htc module is contained in the compat-wireless-2.6.37 backports for Lucid and Maverick. However the firmware for that module is missing.

Fix: Import the firmware file from the official firmware repository (already included in Natty). This is a separate new file. So regressions are not to be expected.

Testcase: Inserting a wireless dongle that requires the ath9k-htc module fails without this.

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 https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you in advance!

Tim, the lucid queue had three linux-firmware uploads, one with an invalid version number (1.38.x), the next with an invalid source.changes (includes 1.34.4 changelog, which is in -updates already), and the third a non-consecutive 1.34.7 upload which only refers to another bug, but doesn't includ the previous changes. Can you please do a new 1.34.5 upload with both changes, or if that is impractical, reupload 1.34.7 built with -v1.34.4? Thanks!

Verified that with the new firmware package and compat-wireless-2.6.37 installed, I successfully enabled a atk9k-htc based wireless usb device.

    backports for Lucid and Maverick. However the firmware for that module
    is missing.
    - LP: #721393

  * Add link for RTL8192SU firmware
    Create a link from RTL8192SU -> RTL8192SE as testing proved the same
    firmware works for both.

  * iwlwifi: Updated iwlwifi-6000g2a-5.ucode and iwlwifi-6000g2b-5.ucode to 17.168.5.2
    17.168.5.2 fixes a showstopper issue that it can't connect to a 5G hidden SSID.
