Summary: WLAN card TI ACX 111 problems
Product: openSUSE 10.2
Version: Final
Platform: i686
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Installation
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: wl@xxxxxxx
QAContact: jsrain@xxxxxxxxxx


During installation of openSuSE 10.2, my TI ACX 111
WLAN chip (as part of a D-LINK DWL-G520+) has been
correctly identified, and yast offers to configure
it. However, it silently fails which isn't obvious
to a user -- yast2 doesn't emit a warning; it only
offers 127.0.0.1 for testing it.

Reason for the failure is that the firmware for the
chip (tiacx111c16 or tiacx111) isn't found by the
`acx' kernel driver; `acx_pci' properly returns
error code -5 (as seen with the `dmesg' command).
Are there license problems to not include DLINK
firmware files?

I strongly suggest that yast2 gets modified to
report this error so that the user can switch to
another network device.
