60(!!) seconds from boot to bring up the wlp2s0. Unfortunately i will never have a dhcpd running on that device, as it simply timeouts. Is there something known?

There is no board-2.bin in that folder so I have no idea why it is expecting that.
Code: Select all
# ls -lh /lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA988X/hw2.0
total 520K
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2.1K Oct 11 08:30 board.bin
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 237K Oct 11 08:30 firmware-4.bin
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 243K Oct 11 08:30 firmware-5.bin
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  14K Oct 11 08:30 notice_ath10k_firmware-4.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  16K Oct 11 08:30 notice_ath10k_firmware-5.txt


There is more info here
http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drive ... e_firmware

And the article links to
https://github.com/kvalo/ath10k-firmwar ... 988X/hw2.0
and no trace of board-2.bin there either.

Official linux-firmware
https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kerne ... 988X/hw2.0

Try creating a symlink to board.bin or just make a copy of board.bin with board-2.bin name.

This is what the driver expects for firmware:
