I have a relatively recent laptop (Thinkpad x270) which uses an Intel 8265/8275 series wireless chipset that uses BSD’s iwm-firmware driver. This isn’t covered with any of the built-in firmware provided by Haiku, so I thought I’d poke around a bit and see if I couldn’t just install the microcode myself.
I managed to find the right driver from BSD’s sources, but it would seem support for my card only got patched into BSD a few months ago
From what I’ve read and seen, however, Haiku has its own special wrapper system for firmware based upon BSD’s firmware releases so I can’t just plop the BSD driver into the firmware directory, not to mention it doesn’t mean the kernel will even look for it if the support isn’t compiled in in the first place.
Is there anything I can do from here to help get wifi on my laptop?
