Debian Installation :: Loading Missing Firmware - Failure To Detect Drivers

Aug 5, 2014

So, I am having certain issues regarding Debian installation. Since my Wi-Fi card, Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG, requires non-free drivers not provided within Debian install image, I am bound to use USB stick during installation process to get those drivers, iwlwifi-3965-1.ucode and iwlwifi-3965-2.ucode, to enable Wi-FI on my system. However, no matter what I do, I cannot get debian-installer to detect drivers present on the machine. I have tried virtually everything - downloading drivers from multiple sources, renaming drivers properly, using ext4 instal of fat32, using gpt instead of msdos, placing files in /firmware instead of root directory - but no matter what I do, the outcome is the same. USB stick seems to be working properly. Am I bound to downloading non-free image now, or is there a solution?

Debian Installation :: Can't Detect Firmware On USB

May 14, 2011

I'm having an issue with the installation. I've downloaded the live ISO and put it on my USB. Everything appeared fine except for the wireless because it requires non-free firmware. The installation tells me that I can insert a USB device with the firmware on it, so I ran to a different computer to download it off the manufacturer's website and put it on the root of another USB.

However, when the installation tries to detect the firmware on the USB, it fails.

The installation is claiming to look for rt2561.bin. I have placed this in the root of the USB as well as the .zip file it came in and a .bz2 file for manual installation of the firmware. Unfortunately, I cannot install the firmware manually either because the system is missing various commands (make, etc.). I am assuming these would be installed automatically with an internet connection.

Debian :: Where To Find The Fw-detect Command ? (for Firmware / Wireless Detect)

Jan 12, 2010

Code...
To find the appropriate firmware without knowing the make or brand of your wireless chip, you can use the command:

#fw-detect

But apparently debian package do not offer this useful tool, well, certainly for sidux exclusively.

Is there a package of fw-detect eventually?

I'm trying to install Squeeze onto a new DELL Vostro 1520 laptop. The Windows Device Manager says it is Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller.

During the network card detection phase, it prompts to install missing firmware file rtl8168d-1.fw from removable media. I understand that this is a non-free blob removed from kernel v2.6.32.

Debian :: Security Risk Of Proprietary Firmware For AMD GPU Drivers?

Jul 27, 2015

I need to build a new computer, and I'm considering buying an "AMD-oriented" motherboard, that comes with an integrated ATI Radeon GPU.But, being a big Free Software enthusiast, that likes to have completely free drivers for everything, and knowing that the "open source" Radeon driver, for ATI/AMD GPUs, uses a non-free firmware, I'm reluctant about this... Above all, because I don't know what kind of security risk I'm taking, when using a proprietary firmware.

And, having read what was recently reported about the security of proprietary firmwares, in general,URL... if the firmware component of graphics cards drivers poses any security threat?(I mean, can the firmware part of a graphics cards driver be used to do anything more than executing instructions to display graphics?)

Debian Installation :: 5.0.3 'Lenny Missing Drivers \ Doesn't Work At All?

Feb 27, 2010

In reply to my last question about Wireless incompatibility in Debian 5.0.3 'Lenny', I found out it was because of missing drivers that I chose to ignore, despite the notifications.Now I've got this problem again, this time with different hardware and a different distribution of Debian (Debian Testing 'Squeeze' i386). As well as asking me to load up ipw2100-1.3.fw (of which I already have), it asks me to load tigon/tg3_tso5.bin. Loading the firmware is no problem. Finding and downloading nthe firmware is the problem here.I've searched through packacges and bug reports for a dowload link, but I've only come across a bundle with the driver I need, as well as a few unneeded extras. IT doesn't work at all.

Ubuntu Installation :: Adding Wireless Drivers To Lib/firmware?

Oct 4, 2010

I have ubuntu and a Texet USB Wireless adaptor. I have a CD with Linux Drivers and I am supposed to be able to copy the folder into libfirmware. Although I am an administrator and have added myself to the group root, I still can't do it, as it says I don't have permissions. I am thinking of trying to use CHMOD once i've read the manual, but wonderd if there's an easier way? The software source and Synaptic Package manager can't help me. Is it as simple as using CHMOD, or is there an easier/harder way?

Ubuntu Installation :: Way To Copy Drivers And Firmware Folder / And Put It Into Chromium?

Feb 17, 2011

I then installed Chromium OS on my EeePC 1000HE with internet through a wired connection. All was great until I unplugged and realized that the wireless did not work. I have spent more hours than I am willing to admit at this point trying to get it to work. I found the drivers and firmware but would get messed up in the process with my little knowledge with installing them.I then installed Ubuntu on my netbook and the wireless worked just fine right after install. So now, I have a working copy of Ubuntu on one SD card and a copy of Chromium on another SD card without wireless capability.

My question:
Is there a way that I can copy the drivers and firmware folder from Ubuntu and put it into Chromium? I am familiar with navigating around at command prompt and mounting the USB drive that I would like to have the drivers and firmware folders copied to.I believe I know the location of both drivers and firmware, but since I am so new to this.Once those folders are copied into place, do I need to do anything else to get them to work?

Ubuntu :: Windows Driver Firmware - Error "Wireless Connection (Firmware Missing)"

Jun 4, 2011

after installing Ubuntu Natty Narwhal 11.04, I'm experiencing tons and tons of complications with the wireless Internet connection. I have solved most of them. Now I have only one thing left. When I hit the drop-down menu for wireless connections, it says "Wireless connection (Firmware missing)"

I have installed the driver for my wireless card but what is the firmware? I honestly don't know what it is although it's very basic. I have a Broadcom 43xx as my wireless card (specifically 4306). How do I get the firmware for it? Do I find it in Windows? Also I cannot get b43-fwcutter because I have absolutely to Internet connection on Ubuntu. To post this, I'm using Windows.

Debian Multimedia :: Gnome Can't Detect New Drivers

Feb 8, 2015

I recently installed fglrx proprietary drivers. Upon reboot, gnome stopped working - the classical "something has gone horribly wrong" message showed up. Surprised, i switched to KDE plasma display manager, and it worked flawlessly.So I opened up Konsole, and typed: gnome-shell --replace.I received this output:

Code: Select all(gnome-shell:3729): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_strsplit: assertion 'string != NULL' failed
(gnome-shell:3729): Clutter-CRITICAL **: Unable to initialize Clutter: The OpenGL version could not be determined
(gnome-shell:3729): mutter-ERROR **: Unable to initialize Clutter.
Trace/breakpoint trap

which led me to think that gnome is not able anymore to detect my display driver. It is however working well: glxgears gives the usual values, and glxinfo does detect the correct driver.I thus searched the web for that error, and the only results that showed up were about changelogs / some obscure things.The xorg.conf seems perfect to me: pointing to the correct drivers, and having the correct values.I am having Debian Jessie with an r9 290x on the proprietary Omega drivers.

Ubuntu Installation :: Debugging Java Applet Loading Failure

May 1, 2010

I have just installed Ubuntu 10.04. When trying to run a Java Applet on a web page I discovered that Java is not installed in 10.04 and the SUN Java JRE is not available to install any more so I installed the OpenJDK and IcedTea Plugin.

Most applets work fine but one specific, for me a very important one, dos not. Specifically the log inn applet used in my net bank: URl... See login entry on top left.After entering userID I am redirected to a page giving the following error message:HTTP 404 - The resource cannot be located. The file cannot be found. This applet runs fine in Windows.I have started Firefox in a terminal window but do not get any error messages there when trying to start the applet.The applet runs fine in Opera (though slow start up) in Ubuntu 10.04. Opera does not use plug in but run the applet directly from JRE. This indicates that the problem could be in the IcedTea plugin.

Ubuntu Networking :: LinuxWiMAX - Firmware Installation - Modem Works Fine But Failing To Install Drivers

May 17, 2011

I switched from windows to Ubuntu 10.10. But I'm not getting along with it as well as I expected I would Specially cause I'm not getting the best out of it due to limited web connectivity. I used to use a usb WiMax modem back in windows (which is also supposed to be supported by linux as my service provider said) for internet. But I'm having a hard time configuring it on my Ubuntu. The modem works fine but I'm failing to install the drivers [url]. I used my cell as a temporary modem to get help from the web.

I downloaded:-

WiMAX Tools 1.4.5
WiMAX Network Service 1.5.2

According to the documentation, I'm supposed to install the linux kernel 2.6.35 which Maverick comes with anyway.

Then comes the part to install the firmware. The command I used was

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Sony Motion Eye Webcam - Firmware Loading

Jul 9, 2010

Well, after searching several forums and trial and error, I finally got my builtin webcam to work. Its r5u870 05ca:1836. The only problem I now have is that after a hard boot (system was powered down), I then have to do a soft boot for this to work properly. It seems to me that the problem is the firmware loading. Obviously, doing a shutdown -r means that the firmware remains in the webcam device and then everything seems OK.

After a soft boot:
linus:~/bin # lsmod|grep -e sony -e uvc -e r5u
r5u870 26436 0
