lxo, can we get a -2 2.6.32 build with these changes (assuming you think
they are fine; you know *a lot* more about linux building than I do :-)
*** Bluetooth support. Already mostly on in lxo's linux-libre build,
just wondering if perhaps these should be compiled as modules as well.
# CONFIG_BT_HCIBTSDIO is not set
# CONFIG_BT_HCIUART is not set
# CONFIG_BT_HCIBCM203X is not set
# CONFIG_BT_HCIBPA10X is not set
# CONFIG_BT_MRVL is not set
*** Builds ath5k and ath9k support as modules. I'm not sure it's
possible to get these devices in USB form factor, but having them around
as modules seemed harmless.
*** Build ath9k USB support - we actually have one of these and I will
be testing it again soon; it wouldn't work with the .30 linux. Note that
AR9170 does have firmware you need to download, but it is claimed that
the firmware is free software - see
This page is for the ar9170 open firmware. ar9170.fw is the firmware for
the Atheros 802.11n USB chipset (AR9170). It was released by Atheros
under the GPLv2 License with a lot of contributions made by the
community. The firmware is maintained by the community.
*** For the RT2500 USB wifi adapter, the oldest USB adapter we know uses
only free software to drive it.
*** Support debugging of external USB keyboards (we are having a problem
with a USB2 keyboard)
*** Support external USB keyboards and mice
