@dmatmul:matrix.orgdmatmulHello, I was curious how difficult it would be to implement the Intel drivers for Intel® Wi-Fi 6E AX210? Or if it is even possible. I see that some other wireless drivers are available. 21:14:28
@nixze:matrix.orgNiXZeMost modern wifi cards require firmware (binary blobs) unless that data is available thru system firmware it won't be possible to have iPXE with such drivers (license and size issues)22:07:25

@dmatmul:matrix.orgdmatmulAh ok, so even though the iwllinux source is available and the fw is available it can't be used in iPXE. Do you know the specific license that causes an issue? Because freebsd seems to use the same linux source code to implement their intel wireless drivers. Do all new network cards suffer from the same issue or is there a certain vendor / model that might be an option? My real goal is that I would like to be able to PXE over a wireless NIC. Is there an alternative method that you can recommend to try out? Maybe a method that utilizes a larger linux image,since it contains modern wireless NIC drivers already. 00:52:32

sounds like old goal,i think you need fork one

Ok thanks! So fork iPXE and try doing it within the fork?

yes,but won't merge to offical repo,

@nixze:matrix.orgNiXZeiPXE runs in firmware, it is not a os or full kernel. So there is limitations You should write drivers from scratch.05:15:50
@nixze:matrix.orgNiXZeInstead, use a phone with tethering, which a usb enabled build of iPXE does support.05:19:53

I am using iPXE and would like to log a pressed key into a configuration setting (in a script).
Essentially, I want to use the prompt command, and log the key that was pressed
Bump

@mechite-63c8f5136da0373984bd3fcc:gitter.imMechite (Mechite)Been 2 months I think probably everyone who could actually answer it has seen it so I guess I won't get a true answer haha05:22:32
@nixze:matrix.orgNiXZeSounds like you want a read for a single key, almost like a menu?05:36:54

@dyeske:matrix.orgdyeskeSo do y'all still use irc?11:00:54
@dyeske:matrix.orgdyeske stappers: I think I may have been trying to talk to you on irc before, but I saw no traffic 11:04:48
@dyeske:matrix.orgdyeske stappers: Is there anything I need to do to change my request here? https://github.com/ipxe/ipxe/pull/723 11:12:14
