Alix and intel error
I have errors loading modules on ipw_bss_fw, ipw_bss_fw, ipw_monitor at boot up on 2.1 version
It says to read license and then enter set legal_ipw.license_ack=1 in /boot/loader.conf
I have tried to edit file but it is read only. not sure what to do to change it to rw, the whole CF is read only.
Are you actually using any of those cards?
I have no idea what the files are for or what cards, I bought the Alix boards, ready built in the nice red box and everything loaded on a compact flash, wireless cards installed, just as advertised in shop when you log on to pfsence, I just want to plug and go within reason, follow the basic configurations and I expect it to work.
I have not done any programming since the days of 6502 assembler so a bit rusty
Uh… Maybe, if you can read the warnings, you could as well read the rest of the boot log and see what wifi cards are being used? Failing that - does WiFi work? If yes, forget about the "issue".
You may add a /boot/loader.conf.local file by touch command for addational config settings. Then just edit it and add the line "legal.intel_ipw.license_ack=1".
Then the error massages will be gone.
