iwl4965 LED?

Anyone know if there is a status update regarding this issue?
Sometimes it gets so frustrating getting hardware to work sad this LED thing on this card drives me nuts...since I always have to check my dmesg to see what's going on with WIFI connections sad hmm

Re: iwl4965 LED?

Check the compat-wireless package from AUR. I had to modify the version from AUR to the one from today (May 26th) and the LED works flawless (it even flickers when it's sending or receiving data).
The version from AUR (the one for the tp kernel) which is from May 24th caused my system to freeze so that's why I modified the PKGBUILD to the 26th of May.

Re: iwl4965 LED?

I just tried compat-wireless.. but i had kernel panic as soon as it associated with the AP. i have another laptop with fedora 8 on it and it works out of box... can we expect something like this in arch in future sometime?

Re: iwl4965 LED?

The LED works flawless now on my Lenovo 3000 N200 kernel 2.6.25 + compat-wireless 2008_05_26-1

Only problem is that with kernel 2.6.25 the networkmanager trys to scan even if the kill switch is set. Hope there will be an update someday.

Re: iwl4965 LED?

The iwlwifi code in 2.6.26 seems to have been reorganised, there is a 'core' module now, and there's an option to have a LED driver too. Maybe you guys want to check one of the RC's? Running fine here, but I have no wireless status LED.

Did you have to modify anything in the PKGBUILD specifically for iwl4965, cos I see:

echo -ne "CONFIG_IWL3945_LEDS=y\nCONFIG_IWLWIFI_LEDS=y\nCONFIG_MAC80211_LEDS=y\n" >> config.mk

no! wink
imo this option includes iwl4965 and iwl3945: CONFIG_IWLWIFI_LEDS=y

Re: iwl4965 LED?

Re: iwl4965 LED?

compat-wireless is only a backport of drivers from kernel 2.6.26 to early ones, enabling new features of the drivers.
wpa_supplicant is the program that manages the wireless connection (it can do pretty much everything else also), so you still need it wink

Re: iwl4965 LED?

you need that the "ucode", its the firmware. It is the piece of code that run directly on the wireless chip. Without it, the wireless chip does know what to do. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firmware

Re: iwl4965 LED?

I can confirm the wireless LED works with 2.6.26 release candidates, for the adventurous people smile.
