FC6 Failed Hotplug Firmware Dependancy


Hi all,

I am trying to get an Atmel wireless USB Adapter to work on FC6 (see wirelss-network thread http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=534731) and need to install an Atmel firmware RPM but get the following error message stating that there is a Hotplug dependancy:

Code:

I don't have an internet connection for the PC with FC6 until I can get wireless to work - and get RPM's from the internet onto it using a USB Flash Disc from another PC which has internet (using Windows XP).

Does anyone know where I can get the Hotplug RPM and which one is needed? When I google this I only find PAM_Hotplug RPM's for FC6 and my system states taht these are already installed.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I have not been able to find another thread on this but if there is one please point me in it's direction and I'll close this one down.

Many thanks, Dan

Do not use the rpm package, simply download the atmel_firmware.tar.gz from the same place you got the rpm package and extract it. Place the firmware files (found in the images and images.usb directories) in /lib/firmware directory location.

In the three years since this rpm package was created things have changed with the 2.6 kernels, but the package has not. The same holds true for the tar.gz file but does not have any dependency problems.

Thanks - I'll try that.

Just for my understanding - you're saying that this package used to need Hotplug - but since it was created Hotplug has been replaced by other areas and the package hasn't been updated to understand that it no longer specifically needs Hotplug?

Thanks, Dan

Correct, FC3 has a hotplug rpm package which does get installed FC6 no longer needs this package.
