boot message
« on: March 22, 2021, 09:36:10 AM »
Hi to everyone,

during the Loading Extensions in the boot, I had this message:

Code: [Select]
loading extensions support for cores revisions 0x17 and 0x18 disable by module param allhwsupport=0. Try b43.allhwsupport=1
after that the system start and works.

could someone know what the message mean and how I can fix it?

thank you

Hi rullolex
The way I read it is, if your wireless chip is  revision 0x17 or 0x18 , then some (I don't know which) support is disabled. If you wish
to try with that support enabled, Add this boot code in your boot loaders config file:
Code: [Select]
b43.allhwsupport=1Then reboot.

Hi rullolex
I guess my first question is, does your wireless connection appear to be working properly?

If you run:
Code: [Select]
ifconfigDo the fields labeled  errors:  show high numbers?

Hi rullolex
That looks fine. If it works well without the  b43.allhwsupport=1  boot code, I would remove it and ignore the message.
