no wireless in new laptop

George from the tribe
My old laptop broke, failed motherboard... so had to purchase a new one...

Here I am with a Dell Inspiron 15 5576...

I have installed leap 42.2, going with gnome for the time being...

but, cannot get wireless card to work, and as of now I don't have an
ethernet cable to connect it directly to the router.

Here is what I am seeing -

------------------------
# hwinfo --netcard

---------------------------

So the driver for the wireless card is ath10k_pci. The firmware didn't
load, properly, so I tried to upgrade to the latest firmware.

Original package - kernel-firmware 20160516git-3.1
upgraded package - kernel-firmware 20160516git-5.1

However, after upgrading the firmware, it still didn't load, as you can
see from this segment of dmesg:

--------------------------

So I am thinking, maybe I need to get a newer kernel. The kernel I am
using is the one that came with the leap 42.2 install dvd. So I
downloaded the newest kernel from the kernel:stable repository, but on
trying to upgrade, here is what I get:

--------------------------
# zypper up kernel-default
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
There is an update candidate for 'kernel-default', but it is from a
different vendor. Use 'zypper install
kernel-default-4.11.4-1.1.gcba98ee.i586' to install this candidate.
Resolving package dependencies...

Nothing to do.


# zypper install kernel-default-4.11.4-1.1.gcba98ee.i586
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
Resolving package dependencies...

Problem: This request will break your system!
   kernel-default-4.11.4-1.1.gcba98ee.i586 conflicts with
libc.so.6()(64bit) provided by glibc-2.22-3.7.x86_64

  Solution 1: Following actions will be done:
   ignore the warning of a broken system (requires:glibc)
   do not install kernel-default-4.11.4-1.1.gcba98ee.i586
  Solution 2: do not install kernel-default-4.11.4-1.1.gcba98ee.i586

Choose from above solutions by number or cancel [1/2/c] (c): 2
Resolving dependencies...
Resolving package dependencies...

Nothing to do.
----------------------------

This is where I have reached the end of the road. I cannot uninstall
glibc, can I? I mean, that is probably a pretty critical package, with a
ton of libraries that the system needs.

What can I try? Anything I do I have to download on a different
computer, put on a stick, and then put then put the stick in the new
computer, and do the package install from there. The new computer cannot
connect to the internet until I get wireless installed. I might be able
to go out and purchase an ethernet cable later and see if then the
ethernet can connect, but I don't know when that will be.

So, any help would be greatly appreciated! :)

I seem to remember reading about this issue.  My recollection  is that there
is a file called firmware-4.bin which should be placed in /lib/firmware
directory.  However, the file being searched for is called firmware-5.bin.  This
is shown in one of the lines above.  The solution was to copy firmware-4.bin as
firmware-5.bin.  The wireless then worked.

Looking at the messages above, it is looking for file called firmware-5.bin in  
lib/firmware//ath10k/QCA6174/hw3.0.   Looking at this directory, the file is
called firmware-4.bin.  Copy this file and name it firmware-5.bin.

Let us know if this works.  If not, I will try and find the link where this was
discussed.

Regards.

Ok, that was great. I followed the link and found the new patched
firmware files, downloaded them, and put them into the firmware
directory, and now I have wifi! Thanks!

One question, though, that is confusing me, and I am wondering what I
should do. In the firmware directory, there are 2 directories, hw2.1 and
hw3.0.  The hw3.0 directory has firmware-4.bin, as you mentioned. I
still have an error in dmesg, like so:

--------------
# dmesg | grep ath
[   13.817175] ath10k_pci 0000:01:00.0: enabling device (0000 -> 0002)

[   16.410624] ath: Country alpha2 being used: 00
[   16.410624] ath: Regpair used: 0x6c
-----------------

So I am wondering, should I go ahead and change the name in the hw3.0
directory also? The one in the hw2.1 directory is already
firmware-5.bin, and so that is why it is working.

Maybe the hw3.0 directory is for the bluetooth or something?

Oh yes, and one more question - what would be the correct syntax for a
modprobe command or something in order to load the firmware without
having to reboot?

Directory depends on hardware you have, it is not something you can

It's not necessary an error. Driver attempts to load the "best" firmware
starting with the highest version it supports. Such firmware may
actually never be even released to public and only used internally by
developers.

So it loaded firmware-4.bin after it attempted to load firmware-5.bin.

At the best it makes no sense, at the worst driver may change behavior
depending on which version it /believes/ was loaded.

What is "it" and how you determine it is "working"?

Could you open a bug report and explain there?
If something needed for making Leap 42.2 working as is, we should do
in in the package level.


thanks,
