where to find aht10k pre-cal-pci

Postby Chrisdb » 2019-07-19 11:32

hellow,

I've recently installed buster and when I start my system, I get the following messages:

Code: Select all
Jul 19 13:50:47 debian kernel: ath10k_pci 0000:01:00.0: firmware: failed to load ath10k/pre-cal-pci-0000:01:00.0.bin (-2)
Jul 19 13:50:47 debian kernel: firmware_class: See https://wiki.debian.org/Firmware for information about missing firmware
Jul 19 13:50:47 debian kernel: ath10k_pci 0000:01:00.0: firmware: failed to load ath10k/cal-pci-0000:01:00.0.bin (-2)


My wifi is working fine, but I want to get rid of these messages :D . I tried downloading the firmware (nonfree), but only 'board.bin' and 'firmware-6.bin' are available.
Does anyone know where I can find and download both 'pre-cal-pci-0000:01:00.0.bin' and 'cal-pci-0000:01:00.0.bin'?

Thx

The missing files are optional and not necessary.

When I try apt install, I get:
Code: Select all
firmware-atheros is already the newest version (20190114-1)

Also, I find it strange that the nonfree buster installation contains firmware-5.bin for my atheros card because I get the following error in my journal:
Code: Select all
Jul 19 20:48:01 debian kernel: ath10k_pci 0000:01:00.0: firmware: failed to load ath10k/QCA9377/hw1.0/firmware-6.bin (-2)

So for this issue I downloaded the firmware separately from the debian site and this package did contain version 6. I installed it in /lib/firmware/xxx and now the message is gone...

But sadly I can't seem to find the other bin files anywhere ....

Not clear what you have now. Try this:

Code: Select all
wget http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/non-free/f/firmware-nonfree/firmware-atheros_20190502-1_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i firmware-atheros_20190502-1_all.deb

sudo dpkg -i firmware-atheros_20190502-1_all.deb


Ok, now I've got firmware-6.bin, but still both 'pre-cal-pci-0000:01:00.0.bin' and 'cal-pci-0000:01:00.0.bin' are not present... :(

If everything works well, is it a real problem for you if you get a system warning that some "pre-cal-pci" optional files are missing ?
https://unix.stackexchange.com/question ... 0k-cal-pci

It can happen that some optional files are missing from free nonfree-firmware.
Is it a real problem or not: this is the question.

I am used for years to get this warning message for tda1004x
* tda1004x: found firmware revision 0 -- invalid
* tda1004x: trying to boot from eeprom

But, ... everything works well ! So I don't care of this message.

Hey L_V,

I used to run arch before because it had a newer kernel. As Debian now has kernel 4.19, my hardware is fully supported, so I retried Debian.
When I ran arch (when it was also running kernel 4.19), I did not get these messages.

I'm just wondering what the difference is....
