Re: Missing firmware for Intel Pro/wireless 3945ABG after update

Seems to have been removed upstream from the linux firmware packages.
https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/use … s/iwlegacy lists a firmware for this card, maybe you can manually unpack it and put it to /lib/firmware

Anyway, the Arch32 firmware packages should maybe be patched to contain more old legacy firmware?

Would the ucode firmware file go into /lib/firmware or /usr/firmware/intel ? do I need to do anything else?

Yes I agree, this should be patched

Not sure, but the driver in the Linux kernel usually searches for a file in a certain directory in /lib/firmware automatically. Usually it is sufficient
to put the file there (one just has to know where and the name of the file).

iwlwifi-3945-ucode-15.32.2.9.tgz unpacks as iwlwifi-3945-ucode-15.32.2.9/iwlwifi-3945-2.ucode

https://packages.debian.org/search?sear … 45-2.ucode

Debian puts it in /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-3945-2.ucode
