Re: kern/52411: Cannot load iwn0 firmware (Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2200
This is beginning to feel like a documentation problem. I'm damned if
I can find anything in the "Guide" or any of the other documentation
available starting at netbsd.org on how to set up wifi. As I mentioned
in my original report, there was a /libdata/firmware/iwn file and now
I find out that despite this, I needed to install a package to obtain
the firmware? Where is all this documented? Maybe I missed it, but I
did make an effort to find it and did not.
