I just installed 11.10 on Dell XPS 15z. Somebody know why kernel does not load the latest firmware for wifi Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6230.

$ modinfo iwlagn |grep iwlwifi-6000

firmware:       iwlwifi-6000g2b-5.ucode
firmware:       iwlwifi-6000g2a-5.ucode
firmware:       iwlwifi-6000-4.ucode

In package linux-firmware there is latest version (iwlwifi-6000g2b-6.ucode)

$ dpkg -L linux-firmware | grep iwlwifi-6000

/lib/firmware/iwlwifi-6000-4.ucode
/lib/firmware/iwlwifi-6000g2a-5.ucode
/lib/firmware/iwlwifi-6000g2b-5.ucode
**/lib/firmware/iwlwifi-6000g2b-6.ucode**
