Warning - ath9k breaks with the 3.2 kernel update

It's the old hwcrypt problem. In case you upgrade the kernel, and have no access to the web, don't blame network manager or wpasupplicant, create a file named

/etc/modprobe.d/ath9k.conf 

with the contents

options ath9k nohwcrypt=1

and reboot

Re: Warning - ath9k breaks with the 3.2 kernel update

Hey!! Thanks for posting this fix.   big_smile


Will this also work for a wheezy set up?

It will if the driver malfunctions.

Re: Warning - ath9k breaks with the 3.2 kernel update

el_koraco,
Yep, did a net install via wlan, but after the 1st dist-upgrade the wireless would break.  I guess the part that confuses me is that the upgrade seems to be a kernel update that has the same kernel number. Maybe there is something subtle I'm missing.  I've got a fresh install that I haven't dist-upgraded yet and the wireless is fine.

I'm using 20120207 btw.

Re: Warning - ath9k breaks with the 3.2 kernel update

The overall package is the same - 3.2.0bpo. The actual version number is higher - 3.2.1.4 or something. It's a security update. Maybe it would do us good to report a bug.

Re: Warning - ath9k breaks with the 3.2 kernel update

I've never reported a bug before.  How is that done?  Are there log files that would be good to add to the report to be as specific as possible?  If so, where are these files kept?

Thanks!

btw, did an update and a du and my wireless is broken once again on the fresh install.  Easy fix now,

Re: Warning - ath9k breaks with the 3.2 kernel update

I just tried to use reportbug, but exim segfaulted, lol. You install reportbug and run the command reportbug linux-image-3.2 or whatever. Then you follow the steps.

Re: Warning - ath9k breaks with the 3.2 kernel update

As far as reporting the bug...
How do I know if it is a debian problem or a #! issue?  (Please take no offense corenominal.  I love crunchbang.)

It's been reported and is getting fixed. Just wait for kernel updates.
