    Re: QCA9377 and ath10k on Ubuntu 15.04 (Apparently now it's supported)

    Mine is working, but not so well. After a while, the connection turns very slowly. If I make a ping, it lost some packets and the times are really high. I know that the router is not the problem, because other devices works good.

    What I did is on post 29 http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...4#post13387334.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    JFTR: after a reboot, it works acceptably for some minutes, and then the problem appears again.

    tizo_rh could u pls let us have a look at the wireless info.text?

    Have you pinged "other devices" exactly when u pinged this one?
    Once getting slow, does the speed return after sometime?

    Re: QCA9377 and ath10k on Ubuntu 15.04 (Apparently now it's supported)

    rinfinity, I am sending wireless-info.txt when back at home.

    I have not made pings from other devices when the problem is happening, but I have tried Internet without any problem at that time from other devices. In the laptop with the problem at that time, Internet is really slowly, or does not work at all.

    I am not sure, but I think that the speed does not return until I reboot the laptop. I have even tried to deactivate Wi-Fi, and then activate it again, and the problem persist. Indeed, one of those time, my router was not seen anymore.

    Thanks very much.

    sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r) git
    echo "options ath10k_core skip_otp=y" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/ath10k_core.conf

    Re: QCA9377 and ath10k on Ubuntu 15.04 (Apparently now it's supported)

    Hello all. First of all thank you coz I had the same problem and then I came across this forum thread and from then on, after following the steps and entering the commands, wifi is working on my laptop Acer Apsire E5-573G-563K with ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS installed on it. Actually I have installed 4 OSes on my laptop. Windows 10 pro x64, ubuntu, Fedora 23 and Kali Linux 2.0.
    So, now that I have got wifi working on ubuntu, can anyone please help me to get my wifi working on fedora and kali linux. I have the same wifi driver atheros 0042 (rev 30). Please anyone help.. like what changes should I make to the commands above for fedora and for kali linux. I'm new to linux but I'm an advanced level user when it comes to using computer. In Windows, I can do it all. But I have just installed these 4 Oses especially to learn linux and hacking. Please post the commands for fedora and kali. I tried YUM instead of apt-get but yum doesn't work in new fedora version so I installed yum package, switched to root user and still, the first command doesn't work i.e -
    sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r) git

    and it shows following output - Last metadata expiration check performed 2:01:25 ago on Wed Nov 11 18:51:09 2015.
    No package build-essential available.
    No package linux-headers-4.2.3-300.fc23.x86_64 available.
    Package git-2.5.0-1.fc23.x86_64 is already installed, skipping.
    Error: Unable to find a match.

    Please post the commands for fedora and kali linux. Thank you

    Re: QCA9377 and ath10k on Ubuntu 15.04 (Apparently now it's supported)

    whizzkid-raj5,

    Right now, I'll concentrate on getting QCA9377 to work on fedora.

    Analysis

    1. build-essential is a debian meta-package (a package of packages) that are essential for compilation and install from source. It consists of

    1. dpkg-dev (>= 1.13.5)
    2. g++ (>= 4:4.4.3)
    3. gcc (>= 4:4.4.3)
    4. libc6-dev
    5. make

    There are ways to get that (except no.1) on fedora.

    2. In fedora linux-headers are called kernel-headers

    So, just replace 'linux' with 'kernel', and you should be fine.

    3. git is already installed, so you don't need to do anything extra.

    Solutions

    Issue 1

    Tthere are two ways:

    a.
    Code:
    sudo dnf install make automake gcc gcc-c++ kernel-devel
    This will install only the "essential" packages (in the spirit of build-essential"
    However, if you are ok with pulling in a lot of packages you can install all the development tools and libraries with the below command.

    b.
    Code:
    sudo dnf groupinstall "Development Tools and Libraries"
    You can choose between a and b, but I'd recommend method a, so we can test ourselves if method a is really equivalent to build-essential.

    Issue 2

    Code:
    sudo dnf install kernel-headers-$(uname -r) git
    Conclusion:

    Replace the previous code:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r) git
    with:
    Code:
    sudo dnf install make automake gcc gcc-c++ kernel-devel kernel-headers-$(uname -r) git
    and proceed with other commands verbatim as the last time.

    Re: QCA9377 and ath10k on Ubuntu 15.04 (Apparently now it's supported)

    ganesh-udayashankar-4,

    Indeed, your card is supported. Just follow the steps.

    #1 Create a temporary directory

    mkdir tmp-ath10k

    #2 And then,
    cd tmp-ath10k

    #3 this is to install some necessary softwares, as we need to install from source from git repository

    sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r) git

    #4
    echo "options ath10k_core skip_otp=y" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/ath10k_core.conf

    #5 we'll download patched backports in the directory we're working from

    wget http://filebin.ca/2LVgpjSgiT56/backp...-11-05.tar.bz2

    #6 extract the downloaded file
    tar -vxf backports-ath-2015-11-05.tar.bz2

    #7Get into the extracted folder, and enter these commands one by one, to install the backport.

    cd backports-ath10k-2015-11-05
    make defconfig-ath10k
    make
    sudo make install

    #8 Now that we've got the backport installed, we'll get the appropriate firmware files and place them in their proper location (which is: /lib/firmware)

    git clone https://github.com/kvalo/ath10k-firmware.git
    sudo cp -r ath10k-firmware/ath10k/ /lib/firmware/
    sudo cp -r ath10k-firmware/QCA9377 /lib/firmware/ath10k/

    #9 For some reasons, the firmware files are not named properly, we fix that.
    sudo mv /lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA9377/hw1.0/firmware-5.bin_WLAN.TF.1.0-00267-1 /lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA9377/hw1.0/firmware-5.bin

    #10 reboot.
