Debian wireless-regdb?

When I used the Debian image, it looks like the wireless-regdb's were not in the correct location.


Using this guide I was able to get CRDA to work.   wireless-regdb: Missing support for kernel direct loading

 

Did I miss something in the initial setup?


If you find a fix, here is our /lib/firmware https://github.com/armbian/firmware and here are general instructions: https://www.armbian.com/get-involved

@Igor

for me the fix was to put the files (attached as .zip)

regulatory.db
regulatory.db.p7s

 

out of  the tar-archive (or newer version)

http://ftp.be.debian.org/pub/software/network/wireless-regdb/wireless-regdb-2018.10.24.tar.xz

 

to /lib/firmware
and reboot

 

[    9.180263] cfg80211: Loading compiled-in X.509 certificates for regulatory database
[    9.187698] cfg80211: Loaded X.509 cert 'sforshee: 00b28ddf47aef9cea7'

 

Or did I missed something special? ;)

OK, now the question is whether we can just add this to the firmware package or not?

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=892229#54

also states to use master-2018-10-24 from https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/sforshee/wireless-regdb.git/

for fixing the "bug".

 

For me this looks very offcial - so that made me think taht we can add this? ;)

@Igor can we expand or replace this commit?

On a newer image I did get the dmesg-Message:
[    9.557455] cfg80211: loaded regulatory.db is malformed or signature is missing/invalid

 

I think because "we" have to replace 2 more files with the newer ones.
For the signature it is sforshee.key.pub.pem in /lib/crda/pubkeys/

and I did see additionally  regulatory.bin in /lib/crda

 

I dont know why they are "so old" in the packages 

- crda - wireless Central Regulatory Domain Agent

- wireless-regdb - wireless regulatory database

 

actual mirror-archive of the original at http://ftp.be.debian.org/pub/software/network/wireless-regdb/wireless-regdb-2019.03.01.tar.gz

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/sforshee/wireless-regdb.git/plain/sforshee.x509.pem

 

I will attach a small archive with these four files here in the message.
