View Full Version : [ubuntu] 8.10 2.6.27-7-generic does not load firmware

Installed new fresh 8.10 and firmware stopped loading. Have a Philips DVB-chip receiver that worked fine with earlier versions
but had to do a fresh install and 8.10 with kernel 2.6.27 does not load specific firmware. "found firmware revision 20 -- ok" should be 29 instead of 20.

Any ideas?

I think we are missing some information here.

Pleas post the output of this command:


cat /var/log/syslog | grep firmware

cat /var/log/syslog | grep firmware

turns out null. but:

cat /var/log/messages | grep firmware
...
Nov 17 22:05:22 davidl-desktop kernel: [ 24.196181] tda1004x: found firmware revision 20 -- ok
...

Is the firmware placed right for this kernel? /lib/firmware

Any more debugging that could be turned on?
