Hello all,

Trying to use  QCA9980 hardware with ath10k version using 10.4 version firmware.  The recommended kernel version is 4.2 from the link

 From the link ,“git://" kernel version 4.2.0(rc7).

In the file, drivers/net/wireless/ath/ath10k/pci.c supports for the following devices. 

static const struct pci_device_id ath10k_pci_id_table[] = {

        { PCI_VDEVICE(ATHEROS, QCA988X_2_0_DEVICE_ID) }, /* PCI-E QCA988X V2 */

        { PCI_VDEVICE(ATHEROS, QCA6174_2_1_DEVICE_ID) }, /* PCI-E QCA6174 V2.1 */




It does not show up for QCA9980.

The kernel version beyond  4.4 provides support for QCA99X0. 

The kernel version 4.7 ath10k driver has been back-ported to 4.1 has been used  using yocto SDK 2.0 version .  The interface comes up.  

But, When boardData_AR900B_CUS239_5G_v2_001.bin  and boardData_AR900B_CUS260_2G_v2_002.bin  have been renamed as board xxx. bin files.  It shows up as mismatch in the magic number.

Want to know correct   version of Linux kernel  and its location. 



Best Regards,
