We are running Linux Kernel 4.4 on the Colibri Vf50 board.
We are using the Realtek wifi dongo with RTL8188CUS chipset in AP mode.
In the linux kernel configuration, I set the following:
CONFIG_WLAN=y CONFIG_RTL8XXU=m CONFIG_RTLWIFI=y CONFIG_RTL8192CU=y
When the linux boot up, I got the following errror messages:
rtl8xxxu: Loading firmware rtlwifi/rtl8192cufw_TMSC.bin usb 2-1: Direct firmware load for rtlwifi/rtl8192cufw_TMSC.bin failed with error -2 usb 2-1: request_firmware(rtlwifi/rtl8192cufw_TMSC.bin) failed
I checked my path: /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/ , there is no files there.
when I tried to start the hostapd, by running the following cmd:
/bin/hostapd /firmware/net/hostapd.conf -B
I got the following error:
Could not set interface to mode(3)! Could not set interface to master mode! rtl871xdrv driver initialization failed.
my hostapd.conf is the following:
acaddr_acl=0 auth_algs=1 ignore_broadcast_ssid=0 wpa=2 wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK rsn_pairwise=CCMP driver=rtl871xdrv hw_mode=g wpa_group_rekey=3600 beacon_int=75 eap_server=1 ctrl_interface=/tmp/hostapd_ctrl interface=wlan0 wpa_passphrase=abcdefg ssid=ENC-0310EA85 channel=1
It seems I am missing the rtlwifi/rtl8192cufw_TMSC.bin file. Did I miss something. Thank you for your help in advance.
