best location for echo 100 > /sys/class/firmware/timeout
Posted on 2006-06-03
My Dell D610 runs FC 3 2.6.12-1.1381_FC3. I installed
ieee80211-1.1.9 and ipw220-1.1.0 for my wireless NIC.
ipw2200 always fails to load during boot. To work around
this, I have to add "echo 100 > /sys/class/firmware/timeout"
to system startup scripts prior to the point at which the driver
module would be loaded. I tried to add the command to /sbin/
hotplug and rc.sysint, both of them didn't work. I also added
"install ipw2200 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install ipw2200;
echo 100 > /sys/class/firmware/timeout" to /etc/modprobe.conf.
It still didn't work and took a very long time for probing hardware
What file do I edit to do this? I really have no clue!
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
