How to build WL1271 driver for kernel 2.6.32 with OMAP3630
Hi,I am trying to build tiwlan driver for wl271 on kernel 2.6.32.My H/W is zoom2 with OMAP3630 cpu board andthe kernel is from git://dev.omapzoom.org/pub/scm/integration/kernel-omap3.gitI tried http://dev.omapzoom.org/?p=vijay/wlan.git;a=summary for tiwlan driver.===================================/lib/modules # insmod sdio.ko sdioDrv_init: Debug mode TI WiLink 1271 SDIO: Driver loaded /lib/modules # insmod tiwlan_drv.ko TI WLAN: driver loading wifi_probe_irq: got wlan irq 322 wifi_probe_irq: got wlan irq trigger falling flag /lib/modules # ./tiwlan_loader /lib/modules # ifconfig tiwlan0 up TIWLAN: 1441.904754: mainSecSm , SM:MainSec SM: config, authProtocol = 0, keyExchangeProtocol=0, unicastSuite=0, broadcastSuite=0 mainSecSm , SM:MAIN_SEC_SM: successful configuration SM pInitParams->RoamingScanning_2_4G_enable 1 mmc2: card claims to support voltages below the defined range.

Kernel Currently compiled with Wireless Extension v22. tiwlan0 Recommend Wireless Extension v0 or later, Currently compiled with Wireless Extension v0. ===========================================I don't understand why this driver is built with 'Wireless Extension v0'. I believe that it is built with valid kernel code.In other way, I tried http://wiki.omap.com/index.php/OMAP35x_Wireless_Connectivity_DownloadsBut it is for kernel 2.6.29.Where can I get the WL1271 driver for kernel 2.6.32?Is there some special way to build the driver?Thanks,Gyungoh
In this forum we support WL1271 for the OMAP35x EVM. As you said, currently our drivers support only kernel 2.6.29. We plan to support 2.6.32 in the coming months (around second quarter).
Since you're using a Zoom2 board, you can also try checking the web site www.omapzoom.org and/or post your question to http://groups.google.com/group/omapzoom/?pli=1.
Hope that helps.
Where can I track the availability of 2.6.32 kernel support officially?
Hello, We will make an announcement in the connectivity wiki: www.ti.com/connectivitywiki and point to where the release is posted once it's available.
we had releaseed the beta 2 release that supports Linux 2.6.32
please download it from our WiKi page in http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/ARM_Processor_Wireless_Connectivity_Downloads please download SW-0005
i have been working on am3703 custom board, and we using the wl1271 wifi module.
my kernel version is 2.6.32,and my hardware wifi connection with mmc2 ,EN pin is for gpio_126,IRQ pin is for gpio_129.
how to integrate wl1271 to my custom(am3703) board.
what are all i have to configure in kernel?and what are sources i have to download,please provide me any reference links?
please suggest me how to solve this one!!
We have newer WLAN driver for WL1271 that is based on open source however we have it for Linux 2.6.37, and in case you can migrate to that Linux release then I would recommend using that driver and not the Legacy driver that we published on Linux 2.6.32.
For the open source driver we have a wiki page that can help with the porting you need, please refer to http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/OMAP_Wireless_Connectivity_Hardware_Porting_for_AM37x_Platform
And for http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/OMAP_Wireless_Connectivity_Hardware_Porting_for_new_Platform
We don’t have guidelines for the Legacy driver that was build for Linux2.6.32
