|0004697||Kali Linux||[All Projects] General Bug||public||2018-04-12 20:40||2018-04-13 21:05|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0004697: platform regulatory.0: firmware: failed to load regulatory.db (-2) after update to kernel 4.15|
|Description||Looks like after i upgraded to the kernel 4.15 i started having this error at boot. |
Dig some digging and looks like it's been reported for several other distros as well. My own findings show that it could have something to do with my internal wi-fi card which is a broadcom.
Before updating the kernel i was able to use the broadcom-sta-dkms driver instead of the b43 one. After upgrading the kernel to 4.15 the broadcom-sta-dkms driver does not work anymore and i was forced to go back to b43.
|Steps To Reproduce||possibly any internal broadcom wireless card and a Kali linux version updated to the 4.15 kernel|
This message is probably unrelated to your issue. The regulatory.db issue is described here:
I have prepared an updated wireless-regdb package if you want to test it out:
But if you want to understand why broadcom-sta-dkms no longer works with your card, then you should probably try to provide more information like concrete error messages, logs, etc.
|The package that I prepared is likely not working (kernel will likely complain that it can't verify the signature) but an updated (and fixed) one should land soonish in Debian unstable.|
