Re: 3.3.1 ath9k wireless regression (Patch available)

I followed Xlator's advice and downgraded to kernel 3.2.14 and obviously it works again. I prefer to wait a working kernel. No hurry to get the latest one.

Re: 3.3.1 ath9k wireless regression (Patch available)

This is fixed in Kernel 3.3.2-1.  I just installed it and happily found my wireless to be working.  smile

Yep, that bad commit that we were reversing manually got reverted upstream in 3.3.2, both -ARCH and -CK are working flawlessly on my end.

Re: 3.3.1 ath9k wireless regression (Patch available)

I just installed Arch last night, and I cant get my ath9k working.  I don't know if it happened to be bad timing with this specific issue and my day-old install, or I'm configuring it wrong.

How could I check to see if I'm being affected by this bug?


lspci

04:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9300 Wireless LAN adaptor (rev 01)

uname -r

@earsplit
So far as I understand this.
The regression bug which started this thread had been fixed in the 3.3.2-1 kernel you report using. (My wireless now works flawlessly on 3.3.2-1 anyway)

Your problem must therefore lie elsewhere.

It might lie in wicd, if you're using that. I thought I was in the clear after getting the 3.3.2-1 kernel but then wicd upgraded to 1.7.2.1-1 and *poof*, gone again.

Re: 3.3.1 ath9k wireless regression (Patch available)

Help a newbie here: if I follow the Beginner's Guide installation instructions (dd the .iso to installation media) on a fresh download, I'm getting the latest kernel? That is, this 3.3.2-1 that supposedly works perfectly?

You'd actually be getting one a bit older than 3.3.2, which wouldn't have the bad commit (it only affected 3.3.1). If you really need the latest kernel, you can use one of the testing isos: http://releng.archlinux.org/isos/ Otherwise, the older kernel should work perfectly fine until you have a chance to -Syu.

Does this mean that I can now safely upgrade to linux-3.3.3-1 as pacman suggests?

I'm running linux-ck 3.3.3-1, and my ath9k-based wireless card is working just fine. It's a safe bet to say that 3.3.3-1 -ARCH is working as well.

Re: 3.3.1 ath9k wireless regression (Patch available)

Not meaning to beat a week-dead horse, but I'm still confused. I've re-downloaded the iso, dd'ed it to a flash drive, and when I run "ip link set wlan0 up" from the live environment, it still returns "RTNET says: Cannot assign requested address." Am I missing something?

Alternatively, I tried to apply the above patch to my existing (broken) system, but I can't seem to compile it without the Linux headers, which I don't have (and can't download...ironic?), because my installation is stock-fresh.
