This is more of an academic issue, but as I have spent several days trying to find a solution, (and in the meanwhile have read many interesting things on this forum) I decided to ask for a little help.
So, my problem is that I have this wireless device build in my 6715b HP notebook, and what I'm trying to do is recreate the steps the kernel takes to correctly populate sysfs (/sys/) at boot time. I am merely an amateur understanding udev and sysfs and I have tried everything I could figure out.
Please notice the wireless adaptor works correctly if I boot linux with the adaptor switched on (blue led beneath the lid indicates that).
Perhaps someone has if not a solution to it, a brief explanation of how exactly does /sys/ get populated during startup as I cannot replicate the directory structure in /sys/ from the time the device is up upon boot, and from the time it is off during boot, even though I'm loading the correct modules (most probably) before/after switching on the adapter from the button.
Thanks in anticipation for any help. Please let me know if you need me to post any details.
