Open firmware for ath9k_htc

This page describes how to compile and install open firmware for the ath9k_htc driver on Debian systems.

There's also a binary version prepared for the debian archives, but not yet accepted. (announcement: see link below)

Installation

  1. Install required packages:

    $ su
    # apt-get install build-essential cmake git m4 texinfo && exit
  2. Clone the repo:

    $ git clone https://github.com/qca/open-ath9k-htc-firmware.git
    $ cd open-ath9k-htc-firmware
  3. Checkout the latest tagged release:

    $ git tag
    1.3.1
    1.3.2
    $ git checkout 1.3.2
  4. Build the toolchain:

    $ make toolchain

    If the tool chain doesn't build, try checking out master:

    $ git checkout master
    $ make toolchain
  5. Build the firmware:

    $ make firmware
  6. Install the firmware:

    $ su
    # cp target_firmware/*.fw /lib/firmware/ && exit
  7. Connect the device to your system. The ath9k_htc kernel module is automatically loaded for supported devices.
