Udev not loading firmware

Might be something simple i'm overlooking, but with kmod installed udev is stalling trying to load firmware (and fails):

ieee80211 phy0: brcmsmac: fail to load firmware brcm/bcm43xx-0.fw
ieee80211 phy0: brcmsmac: Failed to find firmware usually in /lib/firmware/brcm

The file is there. After booting is finished i can issue a modprobe normally and the firmware is loaded correctly.

Any pointers?

<Just guessing>

This sounds a bit like http://mailman.archlinux.org/pipermail/ … 24116.html

[   10.732916] Loading firmware rtlwifi/rtl8192sefw.bin
[   71.520133] rtl8192se:rtl92s_init_sw_vars():<0-0>  Failed to request firmware!
[   71.520141] rtlwifi:rtl_pci_probe():<0-0>  Can't init_sw_vars.

Dave talked about missing firmware rules and helpers http://mailman.archlinux.org/pipermail/ … 22385.html

Oh darn, you might be right, udev itself got upgraded too, i hadn't noticed. I'm going to look into that, thanks. smile

Re: Udev not loading firmware

I have the same problem but udev-177 just won't load the firmware. Back to udev-175 from [core] It works nicely smile
