PCIe ath10k on RockPro64
#1
Hi,
I am trying to get a QCA988X wifi miniPCIe module to work. 
I am using adapter from miniPCIe to to the PCIe x4 slot. All in chain should support PCIe 2.1 spec. 

As far as I get is to get the module recognized in lspci. 
Kernel module ath and  ath10k_core are loaded. But I think ath10k_pci is missing. When I compile a custom kernel with this module, or compile a module to the existing kernel, I always get kernel panic on loading the module. (modprobe -v ath10k_pci).

Some ideas on how to get the card to work?

Yes I need exactly that card.

This is just a shot in the dark, as I don't own this hardware. But when you look in /lib/firmware, is there an ath10k directory? If not you probably need the firmware-atheros package.

The firmware can also be found here:
