I have a fresh image loaded and ran ‘opkg install linux-firmware-ath9k’ and confirm that the package is installed:
root@apalis-imx6:~# opkg list-installed | grep ath
linux-firmware-ath9k - 1:0.0+git0+80d463be82-r0.0
linux-firmware-atheros-license - 1:0.0+git0+80d463be82-r0.0
I rebooted the machine with a wifi card that has an Atheros AR9565 chipset. I can see that the machine can detect the card:
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0cf3:3004 Atheros Communications, Inc. AR3012 Bluetooth 4.0
01:00.0 Network controller: Qualcomm Atheros QCA9565 / AR9565 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)
However, I do not see the kernel module loaded and cannot find ath9k.ko module file anywhere (find / -name ath9k.ko).
I confirm that ath9k supports the wifi card mentioned (en:users:drivers:ath9k [Linux Wireless])
Am i doing something wrong?
