hotplug firmware loading problem
as you can all see i have another problem, this time with the hotplug firmware loading during boot. i installed the ipw2100 and its firmware for my centrino notebook, followed correctly all instructions, tried different versions of the drivers & firmware and i still get an error on boot.
it says: ipw2100: intel pro wireless 2100 at address ....... (address of card)
ipw2100: firmware loading failed
ipw2100: firmware ...... (name of file) does not exist or failed to load
i checked several times for the existence of the files in /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware, checked their permissions, checked the hotplug startup scripts etc.
why wont it load??????
oh and i should mention that the FIRST time i installed the driver and the firmware they were working perfectly until one day i got this error about the firmware not loading and i wasn't able to use the wi-fi ever since.
