Uploading zips of unmodified source code is not useful, we know where to find it, thanks.

comment:5 by cocobean, 17 months ago

I'm porting the code to test on my own physical hardware as the current port is problematic on it.

comment:6 by waddlesplash, 17 months ago

Well, it won't work; it needs the new net80211 code as well as a bunch of other patches to the compatibility layer that are not in master. I have a WIP branch with most of them, however the iprowifi4965 driver that I've been trying to test them with KDLs after connecting to an AP.

comment:7 by waddlesplash, 17 months ago

The new net80211 code and the updated iprowifi4965 driver was merged in hrev52040. If you can tell me what device ID you have and what architecture you are on, I can merge and then get a test build of the new iprowifi3945 driver for you.

Attached. SHA256sum should be 0e568836735579981fa36a21bf01691daf033c3e2da5b90e06528dafb4dc4003. I'm about to post testing instructions on the forum, so please look at that (or ask me on IRC.)

NOTE: need to fix install-wifi-firmware.sh for correct website and any missing firmware files.

Seems it didn't load the firmware or lock memory properly - but I can disable/enable the driver without getting a KDL event and make attempts to join network without wpa_supplicant crashing (main issue with previous one). I need to do this from a test dev Live CD state to really track/test the exact same way (for a true clean test).

It looks like the driver was already loaded, which may be part of the problem. Please remove it, reboot, and then copy the new one into non-packaged. (See complete instructions at https://discuss.haiku-os.org/t/wi-fi-ethernet-testers-wanted/6998/2.)
