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.

Look at this link.

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!

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,

Takashi

Thanks to everyone for the help. I will get a bug report written soon.
