Hi Luigi,

I've posted yesterday the message below to freebsd-mobile...
While Google'ing arround I've found your posting from Thu, 15 Feb 2007
and the small hack you did inserting some simple printf(...)
statements into if_iwi.c;

http://groups.google.com/group/lucky...2550e98e057782

the source coming with 6.2-RELEASE has as CVS-Id line
the version info 1.8.2.10 2006/10/29; is there any real fix
for this problem?

Btw: The laptop I've updated is the one of my wife and you can imagine
what she is now saying about FreeBSD :-) I'm in big trouble here :-)

Thx

matthias

Subject: iwi0: iwi_cmd: cmd 6 not sent, busy && freezing soemtimes


Hello,

I've updated one of my laptops to FreeBSD-6.2R, using for
the Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200BG the firmware from the ports
/usr/ports/net/iwi-firmware-kmod;

during boot the driver is loaded via loader.conf and the adapter
initialized via rc.conf:

ifconfig_iwi0="inet 192.168.2.4 netmask 255.255.255.0 ssid XXXXXXX channel 6 wepkey 0xXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX weptxkey 1 wepmode on"

on every boot I see in /var/log/messages:

May 19 14:53:15 far kernel: iwi0: mem 0xffcfe000 -0xffcfefff irq 19 at device 3.0 on pci1
May 19 14:53:15 far kernel: iwi0: Ethernet address: 00:13:ce:71:b3:a8
May 19 14:53:15 far kernel: iwi0: iwi_cmd: cmd 6 not sent, busy
May 19 14:53:15 far kernel: iwi0: device configuration failed
May 19 14:59:05 far kernel: iwi0: link state changed to DOWN
May 19 14:59:05 far kernel: iwi0: link state changed to UP

but the link comes up, if the boot not freezes;

when it does freeze the last lines are:

...
Setting hostname: ...
net.inet6.ip6.auto_linklocal: 1->0

when the boot continues this last line (net.inet6.....) is followed by

...
net.inet6.ip6.auto_linklocal: 1->0
iwi0: iwi_cmd: cmd 6 not sent, busy
iwi0: device configuration failed
...

so it *could* be that the freeze has todo with the if_iwi driver;

is there any known problem with the if_iwi driver in 6.2R or what
can I do to help to debug it? Thx

Google shows me a messages which is similar to my problem:
http://groups.google.com/group/muc.l...865214c83cce32
from November 2006, maybe I'm hitting a solved issue?

Matthias
