Hi All,

I want to know the version of ath6kl driver in Marshmallow. I tried flashing Marshmallow on SD card but i could not do it. But that is another issue about which i am not worried right now.  My target was to flash SD card with Marshmallow and check ath6kl version which shows at boot time.

Best Regards,

Hare

I do not know what is "android release (eng-L5.0.2_1.0.0-ga)",

attached documents are for nxp official releases (found on nxp.com) :

L5.0.0_1.0.0-ga, also Android L5.1.1_2.1.0 uses broadcom BCM4339

as shown in attached Release Notes p.4

Suggest to look at document Release Notes - it should be included in bsp,

it shows what is supported. Note, there may be other drivers, but they are not

supported (tested).

igor,

In imx android release (eng-L5.0.2_1.0.0-ga), there is atheros driver in hardware/imx/wlan/atheros/ location which is getting used ... and there will be another driver which is the part of linux kernel itself.(kernel_imx/drivers/net/wireless/ath/). What is the difference between these two version. And as we see, the one which is hardware/imx folder is getting used .
