Hi,

I'm having trouble loading the libertas_sdio wireless driver for the guruplug when using Kernel 2.6.37.

When I execute modprobe libertas_sdio I get the following output:

Code:
guruplug-debian:~# modprobe libertas_sdio                                       
libertas_sdio: Libertas SDIO driver                                             
libertas_sdio: Copyright Pierre Ossman                                         
libertas: failed to load firmware                                               
libertas_sdio: probe of mmc0:0001:1 failed with error -5

The firmware files sd8688.bin and sd8688_helper.bin are located in /lib/firmware.

The driver in kernel 2.6.35-10 does load but is very unstable and causes the kernel to crash, so I thought I would give 2.6.37 a go.

This is proving to be very frustrating as one of the reasons I bought a guruplug was for the WIFI.

Thanks
