no wifi, network controller unclaimed, Ubuntu 20.10, Qualcomm QCA6390device

Asked by Rafael Nussbaum on 2021-02-05

Hello,
I installed Ubuntu on my new Dell XPS15 9500 and the wifi card is not working.
The wifi icon doesn't even show up and lshw -C network gives network unclaimed.
I tried a bunch of things, but no success so far.
Rafael

Bug #1879633 tells that a driver is available in the linux-oem-5.6 and linux-oem-5.10 kernels for Ubuntu focal.

Eventually https://<email address hidden>/dell-xps-15-9500-wifi-on-ubuntu-20-04-d5f1c218e78a works also for groovy, or any other instruction that you find on the web when searching for an ath11k driver for Ubuntu.

Hi Manfred,
thank you so much for your answer. I did as described in the link you send.
In step 3, the two cp commands give me an error, no such file or directory

found some other bin files and copied them, I figured the tree is a bit
different

find QCA6390/hw2.0/ | grep .bin
QCA6390/hw2.0/msm/1.0.1.c1.2/WLAN.HST.1.0.1.c1.2-00014-QCAHSTSWPL_SILICONZ-1/m3.bin
QCA6390/hw2.0/msm/1.0.1.c1.2/WLAN.HST.1.0.1.c1.2-00014-QCAHSTSWPL_SILICONZ-1/amss.bin
QCA6390/hw2.0/1.0.1/WLAN.HST.1.0.1-01230-QCAHSTSWPLZ_V2_TO_X86-1/m3.bin

QCA6390/hw2.0/board-2.bin

sudo cp
QCA6390/hw2.0/1.0.1/WLAN.HST.1.0.1-01230-QCAHSTSWPLZ_V2_TO_X86-1/bdwlan01.e04
/lib/firmware/ath11k/QCA6390/hw2.0/
sudo cp
QCA6390/hw2.0/1.0.1/WLAN.HST.1.0.1-01740-QCAHSTSWPLZ_V2_TO_X86-1/*.bin
/lib/firmware/ath11k/QCA6390/hw2.0/

I walked through the menu, as described, but in step 5, I got an error and
that's where I'm stuck:
sudo make -j $(nproc)
***
*** Configuration file ".config" not found!
***
*** Please run some configurator (e.g. "make oldconfig" or
*** "make menuconfig" or "make xconfig").

Did you save the data after going through the menus in "make menuconfig" ?

Hi Manfred,
I went through it again and it looks I didn't.
While saving it asks to enter a filename to which this configuration could
be saved as an alternate.
I gave it last time a name like wifi_support.config. I don't know if I do
the right thing there.

Or do I have to put the name I choose (wifiSupport) instead of nproc in the
make -j command?

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #6

Looking into the Makefile let me assume that the config file either has to be named .config, or you have to provide its name by adding
KCONFIG_CONFIG=file-name-of-config-file
to the make command

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #7

nproc is the number of processors that you want to use for compiling.

Hi Manfred,
Thanks for your answer, that makes things clear. I assume the .config is
the ending of the file.
Let me try that, sorry for making so stupid mistakes.

Hi Manfred. I compiled the kernel, but it exited with an Error, see above.
I hope it's not too much bother. That stuff is so above my head.
Thank you so much for your help

A quick web search for the error message lists https://stackoverflow.com/questions/61657707/btf-tmp-vmlinux-btf-pahole-pahole-is-not-available with the suggestion to run
sudo apt install dwarves
and then start the "make ..." command again

Thank you so much, Manfred
It works, I'm on wifi now.
I was there in above my pay grade. I was googling solutions, trying stuff
which didn't work or somehow gave an error message, not really knowing what
I'm doing. I really appreciate your help.
Have a wonderful day

"I was googling solutions" - That's what the web is for ;-)

If WLAN is now working as desired. then you might close this question document as "solved".

Thank you so much

Hi,
amoth later, the wifi card was out again. First I tought that an update might have replaced the kernel.
I tried the same procedure. In the menuconfig, all these options were already chosen, and indeed when I tried to save it told that the file is unchanged. I still went through with the procedure, it all worked fine but upon restart, my wifi still isn't working.
I would love if somebody could help me.

What output does
lshw -C network
produce now?

Are there any messages about firmware in the dmesg output?
sudo dmesg | grep irmw

Any messges about the device in dmesg?
sudo dmesg | grep -i ath

 lshw -C network
It goes through a few things, but at the end there's no output

sudo dmesg | grep irmw

Sorry, needs sudo

sudo lshw -C network

Hi Manfred,
I did sudo

Sorry, no idea.
If lshw does not show any network hardware any more, then this is inexplicable for me.

Hi Manfred,
I agree with you.
And even more with the fact that rebooting this afternoon the wifi was completely fine. I hope it stays, fingers crossed.
lshw reads a bit more normal, too:
I'm not really sure why the card disappeared on me, but I think it is a different problem. I put the question as solved for now.

sudo lshw -C network

Let's hope that this was a unique incident that does not re-appear after the next reboot.
