iwn wi-fi - "could not read firmware" - my error?
Looks like I may have spoke too soon on my new little laptop supporting wifi under OpenBSD. Or at least out of the box.
dmesg reports it has an "Intel Wifi Link 100". I did pkg_add the separately-downloaded Intel firmware per the iwn man page.
After doing an
ifconfig iwn0 nwid 'Some Hotel Network'
I see in dmesg:
iwn0: error, 2, could not read firmware iwn-1000
In /etc/firmware, there is an iwn-1000 which is a symlink to iwlwifi-1000-3.ucode (this was setup by pkg_adding the Intel firmware package). The iwlwifi-1000-3.ucode file exists and is 33056 bytes.
Anyone have any advice? I'm wondering if this is more of a user error rather than a driver problem because it's saying it "could not read" - which the man page says "For some reason, the driver was unable to read the firmware image from the filesystem". There is a separate error for "could not load firmware".
