Hi,

I've upgraded to v3.8.0 and there is an error with wifi driver :

extract from dmesg :
[ 5.694208] Intel(R) Wireless WiFi driver for Linux
[ 5.694211] Copyright(c) 2003- 2015 Intel Corporation
[ 5.697666] iwlwifi 0000:04:00.0: Direct firmware load for iwlwifi-3160-17.ucode failed with error -2
[ 5.697676] iwlwifi 0000:04:00.0: no suitable firmware found!


lspci :

04:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless 3160 (rev 83)
Subsystem: Intel Corporation Dual Band Wireless AC 3160
Flags: fast devsel, IRQ 19
Memory at 81200000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8K]
Capabilities: [c8] Power Management version 3
Capabilities: [d0] Message Signalled Interrupts: 64bit+ Queue=0/0 Enable-

All other settings are fine.

no wifi issues with 3.7.

Thanks,
Didier

I think error -2 is a "no such file or directory" error.

I suspect you are missing the firmware file for your wifi chip, iwlwifi-3160-17.ucode.

These files are usually under stupid licences that do not allow re-distribution, so they are not included in the OS install, and need to be installed afterwards.

I looks like you can get the file you need from here: https://github.com/OpenELEC/iwlwifi-firmware/tree/master/firmware (I just found this with google).

But I'm not sure where in the filesystem you need to put it, possibly under /lib/firmware/

Thanks for the hint but.
The file system is read only,

root@zershell firmware> touch test
touch: cannot touch `test': Read-only file system
root@zershell firmware> pwd
/lib/firmware



I had a look in /Database but didn't find any place for drivers.

I there a way to add drivers in Zeroshell ?

Thanks
