Flash primary firmware
Mon Sep 13 07:24:49 PDT 2004
thanx a lot for your feedback, I'm using the -r option to download the
primary firmware on ram rather then on flash. When I try downlaoding it
to flash I have IOCTL problems! When I download to flash I use a PK file
as you suggested me. Of course I have enabled FLASH DOWNLOAD in
hostap_confgi.h and recompiled.
Any idea? -- Thanx

As indicated by the output the primary firmware you are loading is a RAM
based firmware, rather than a firmware to be written to the flash memory
on the card.
You can also tell this by the filename (af indicates RAM based), for a
flash based firmware you want something starting with p (eg
Jun Sun's mini HOWTO at http://linux.junsun.net/intersil-prism/ seems to
be the definitive reference for this sort of thing.
