Has anyone enabled wifi on imx51 board using wl1271 wifi chip. I'm able to do a scan using iwlist and get the AP's, I'm not able to work it out using the wpa_supplicant. Please provide some pointers.
please have a look at u-mobo/linux-imx · GitHub
The branch imx_184.108.40.206 contains a series of patches applied to both mmc and wl1271 drivers.
Basically you should be able to apply all the patches dated 2, 7 and 16 December 2012.
You can then refer to arch/arm/mach-mx5/mx53_umobo.c file for driver references.
My Two Cents
FYI: The Silex Wi-Fi modules as utilized by the Mx6 will work with both the Mx51 and Mx53 as well. Simply follow the instructions as provided by Silex (regardless of Mx53 or Mx51) - setting up based on the drivers provided in your release and adding a new .bin file.
I'm trying to play with Android for iMX53 QSB and WL1271, but with no success.
I patched wpa_supplicant_6 to emulate missing command, but still no joy.
Can you give me any suggestion?
