I am trying to get a MultiModem GPRS Modem to work on a 2.6.12 kernel with Slackware 10.2. There is a hotplug script (placed in /etc/hotplug.d/usb/) with the installation and it appears to be called and the module (ti_usb_3410_5052.ko) is loaded into the kernel when the device is plugged in, but there is an error at some point when loading the module resulting in the following error (dmesg):
usb1-6: ti_reqest_and_download_firmware - no firmware image found
I traced through the ti_usb_3410_5052.c driver and found that the call to request_firmware() returns an error value of -5. request_firmware() is located in the module firmware_class.ko. I think it may be failing on call to "kobject_hotplug(&class_dev->kobj, KOBJ_ADD);" in firmware_class.c -- but I'm not 100% sure.
I have tried placing the firmware files in both:
Neither location has solved the problem.
Any insight would be very very much appreciated. Thanks, Kevin.
