[edit] Gentoo on the Pandaboard

Eventually I'll put all my notes regarding installing Gentoo here


[edit] Wireless

[edit] Firmware

As of 2011-06-18 the latest firmware available appears to be version 6.1.0.50.350, obtainable at http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/dwmw2/firmware/linux-firmware-20110616.tar.bz2

The ubuntu version (https://launchpad.net/~tiomap-dev/+archive/release/+files/tiwlan-wl1271-firmware_0.24.9.1.orig.tar.gz) is only 6.1.0.0.335

The versions available at https://gforge.ti.com/gf/project/wilink_drivers/frs/ dont seem to load on linux.


[edit] Configuration

To statically set the mac address for the wireless interface, create the file '/etc/udev/rules.d/10-wlan.rules' with the following contents

KERNEL=="wlan*", ATTR{address}=="00:00:00:00:00:00", ATTRS{vendor}=="0x0097", ATTRS{device}=="0x4076", RUN+="/sbin/ifconfig %k hw ether XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX"

Replacing the XXs with your desired mac. If you wish for the rules to take effect immediately, run `udevadm control --reload-rules` and reload the 'wl12xx_sdio' module.
