Subject:   NanoBSD: issue including firmware for ral driver in image
Message-ID:  <1432158865.12990.5.camel@belgoline.com>

Hi all,

With my current NanoBSD build I'm not able to bring up the ral0
interface. Instead I get the following:

  ...
  rt2561sfw: could not load firmware image, error 2
  ral0: rt2661_load_microcode: unable to retrieve firmware image
rt2561sfw
  ral0: rt2661_init_locked: could not load 8051 microcode, error 22

I figured out that I need the firmware for the device which I hoped
accomplishing with including the firmware, ral and ralfw modules in my
nanobsd.conf (included at the end).

However this leads to the kernel failing to install, more specifically I
get the following error

  ===> ral (install)
  install -o root -g wheel -m 555
if_ral.ko /usr/obj/nanobsd.nano//_.w/boot/kernel
  install -o root -g wheel -m 555
if_ral.ko.symbols /usr/obj/nanobsd.nano//_.w/boot/kernel
  ===> ralfw (install)
  ===> ralfw/rt2561 (install)
  install -o root -g wheel -m 555
rt2561fw.ko /usr/obj/nanobsd.nano//_.w/boot/kernel
  install: rt2561fw.ko: No such file or directory
  *** Error code 71

I'm working with 10.1-RELEASE.

I googled around but didn't find anything useful. I guess that this is
basic FreeBSD module building stuff... but I don't see it.

Apart from that I'm really impressed with NanoBSD, it's simply great!
