Subject: linux-2.6: Warns about missing firmware from firmware-iwlwifi despite having it installed
Date: Sun, 20 Feb 2011 08:29:25 -0800
Package: linux-2.6
Severity: normal

I recently helped someone upgrade their laptop from lenny to squeeze.  I
subsequently installed the 2.6.37-1 packages from current unstable, in
the hopes of working around a driver issue.

When I installed the 2.6.37 kernel, it warned about possibly missing
firmware from the firmware-iwlwifi package.  However, that system
already had the latest version of the firmware-iwlwifi package
installed.

This is correct behaviour; firmware-iwlwifi doesn't yet have the
firmware required for some of the newer IWL chips.  I'll reassign this
to firmware-iwlwifi.

The missing file, iwlwifi-100-5.ucode, was added in the above version.
