Romsterok so friend has setup crux with ath9k wifi card. it's spitting out.13:59
Romstercould not read interface wlan013:59
frinnsthm, nothing in dmesg regarding firmware or something?14:00
Romsterdoes it matter that ath9k driver is compiled in and not as a module?14:00
Romsterapparantly other sties say no firmware required.14:00
frinnstyeah, building as a module might give you more debug info14:01
frinnston load etc14:01
frinnstifconfig -a doesnt show some other interface?14:02
frinnstcrux 3.1 ?14:02
Romsterdidn't want to push my luck14:03
Romsternot new to linux but this person has noting but distro problems when manualyl compiling stuff in ubuntu and another distro so i'm trying to get her on crux.14:04
Romsterand it boots just no wifi interface yet.14:04
Romstergot a a lo and a sit014:04
Romsterso is it sit0 and not wlan0 ?14:05
Romsteror is sit0 some sort of bridge14:05
Romstermaybe wpa_supplicant only works with a module than built in.14:08
Romsterchanging it to a module14:11
Romsterlsmod it's not loaded and modprobe ath9k is not found14:18
Romstersysklogd[ERROR] as well to deal with.14:20
Romsternot sure...14:25
Romster ok testing this out...14:27
Romsteruh wasn't there a kernel config option needed for sysloged now?14:28
Romstersomething event i can't remember14:29
Romsterah no it was something notify14:30
*** irclogger_ has joined #crux14:42
Romstergeneric was not enabled for cfg8021114:42
jaegersitX is a point to point tunneling interface, unrelated to wireless14:43
Romsterdnotify is already * so why is sysklogd erroring out?14:43
*** prologic_ has joined #crux14:43
Romsterok so where did you get the fiormware and how did oyu get it working.14:44
jaegerfrom git.kernel.org14:44
jaegerthere's a linux-firmware tree14:44
Romstershe has no net until her wifi works... this is looking like a chicken and egg issue.14:44
jaegercheck dmesg first, you may not even need one14:45
jaegerIf it needs firmware you'll see the exact filename in dmesg14:46
*** doomicide has quit IRC14:48
*** arjovr has quit IRC14:48
*** doomicide has joined #crux14:49
jaegerwireless extensions compat needs to be enabled as well if she's going to use wpa_supplicant's dhcpcd hook14:55
Romster grep ath9k found nothing in dmesg14:55
jaegertry grepping for "firmware" or "fw"14:56
jaegeralso note that if you have the wrong driver selected in the kernel it won't try to load any firmware14:56
jaegerwhat does its lspci entry look like?14:56
Romsterdo the configs have to be * or m for the ath9k stuff?14:58
jaegerdoesn't matter14:58
Romsterpci-express revision 0115:00
jaegerso the 9002 driver should support that one15:00
jaeger< >   Atheros 802.11n wireless cards support (NEW)15:00
*** arjovr has joined #crux15:01
*** dkoby has quit IRC15:02
*** BitPuffin has joined #crux15:05
Romsterjaeger, all she gets for fw is touchpad and caps15:13
jaegerThen maybe it doesn't need any15:13
jaegerwhat shows up in dmesg when the ath9k module is loaded?15:13
Romstershes enabled the other stuff in the kernel but still no interface.15:14
Romsterthis is frustrating wish she just had lan.15:14
Romster" would rather just have a FULL LIST of what to enable in the kernel (including * m) instead of being sent on a confusing goose chase here"15:14
RomsterI would15:14
Romsterin her words15:14
Romsternot sure if i can help more without being in front of the pc.15:15
jaeger<M>   cfg80211 - wireless configuration API15:15
jaeger[*]     cfg80211 wireless extensions compatibility15:15
Romstershes on kernel 3.6.11 off the iso15:15
jaeger<M>   Generic IEEE 802.11 Networking Stack (mac80211)15:15
jaeger< >   Atheros 802.11n wireless cards support15:15
jaegerthose things15:16
jaegerdoes dmesg show any errors when ath9k is loaded? or anything at all?15:16
Romstershes done all those settings15:16
Romsterexcept the first one is a *15:17
jaegerthat's fine, doesn't matter at all15:17
Romsterfor cfg8021115:17
tilmanteK__: i believe opt/postfix needs a bump. 2.7.x is EOL'd.15:17
Romsterno errors. just blank output15:17
jaegerthat would indicate the kernel doesn't see the device at all15:18
Romsterto top it off not sure why sysklogd[error] yet it has dnotify enabled in kernel.15:18
jaegertry starting it manually, see if there's an error15:18
jaegermight be missing SYSVIPC or something like that15:18
Romsterenabled on mine15:19
Romsteri'll get her to check those.15:20
Romsteryou mean running the wpa_suppclint command manually?15:20
jaegerno, syslog15:20
jaegerthough really I'd recommend  chasing one problem at a time15:20
jaegerwith that said, fixing syslog might shed some more light on why the wireless doesn't work15:21
Romsteragreed sitck to wifi for the time being.15:21
Romstershe had that card working in chickra and ubuntu so we know the card works15:22
jaegerath9k is well supported, it's just something missing on that install15:22
Romsterbut she jsut coudn't get what she wanted setup chickra and ubuntu do some trickery to make it harder to do stuff manually. she managed to compile firefox off LFS15:23
Romsterbut it wont run.15:23
teK__tilman: indeed. Will check the migration notes..15:23
Romstercould it be the older kernel she is on 3.6.11 being too old?15:23
teK__jaeger: I might try that tonight, thx15:23
jaeger3.6.x should work fine for ath9k15:23
jaegerteK__: hope it helps15:23
teK__first: soccer and $food =)15:24
tilmanteK__: sure, no hurry.15:24
Romstershe got klogd fixed.15:24
Romsterthats a start15:24
Romsterjaeger, now she got wifi working phew. she forgot an option in the kernel.15:26
Romsterasked her what she can't remember -_-15:26
jaegeror she doesn't want to say :P15:26
Romsteroh well it's fixed now thanks for the help.15:27
teK__the docs are rather sparse wrt 2.7 -> 2.8 migrations15:35
