Debian :: Firmware On USB Stick

Mar 4, 2015

I just now down loaded firmware-brcm80211, I want to put it on a usb stick, so that when I am installing debian, and it asks to insert the "medium" that has the driver, I have it on a usb stick.

My question, do I just copy the package to the device(usb stick), or do I need to extract it onto the stick ?

General :: Arch Update Failed - Error "firmware: /lib/firmware/radeon/R700_rlc.bin Exists In Filesystem Note That In The Beginning"

Jul 4, 2010

I can't my system because of this error: Code: linux-firmware: /lib/firmware/radeon/R700_rlc.bin exists in filesystem Note that in the beginning, it asks:

Code: :: Replace kernel26-firmware with core/linux-firmware? [Y/n] There are so many updates by now that the list fills in a few pages in the terminal! Also, I wonder why so many Arch updates get stuck or broken compared to almost any other distro? Is it poorly designed packages? Is it a design flaw in pacman/the package format?

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 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 :: Squeeze Netinstall With Non-free Firmware?

Apr 4, 2011

I installed Squeeze on a server today, and struggled a bit because the network card needed non-free firmware (Broadcom something). The server had no floppy, so I had to go and get a pen drive and put firmware from non-free on it to get it to work.

I agree on the political issues on this, but sometimes it's non-free or nothing.

So I was wondering if someone know of a patched netinstall, or know how to make one? Then I could give the pen drive away to something more useful that keeping non-free firmware. Warnings and questions about the non-free would also be nice.

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 :: Boot DVD Don't Work - Jessie With Added Firmware

Jul 10, 2015

I would like to upgrade from Win8.1 to Debian 8. This post might require some Wind expertise as well. I have to deal with the dreaded UEFI interface.

I got the iso with the added firmware from here: [URL] ....

The i386 download and it appears to be 334 MB. I pretty got it because I don't want to mess with the wireless controller (been there done that.)

As far as the Wind side goes I disabled secure boot. Just whenever I get to the fancy blue screen, I select boot from EFI DVD. Then it just says it can't load it and asks if I want to continue loading the OS. This might be useful I used the default Desktop Burning Gadget to burn the disk image.

Debian Configuration :: 7.2.0 - Mount WiFi Device Just After Pushing Firmware

Jun 18, 2015

Working on Debian 7.2.0.

In a specific context I want to automatically make operationnal some USB WiFI devices, deploying automaticaly firwmare (may be not free packages) depending on device ID (vendor ID/product ID). Dev device is a Netgear WNA1000 (driver ath9k, with htc_9271.fw firmware).

I tried to reset the USB bus (modprobe -vr ehci_hcd; modprobe -v ehci_hcd) but it's not really reliable, with sometimes kernel panic.

Is there an "official" way to "mount" the device (the system create the device wlan0) just after deploying the firmware? Maybe using udev ?

Debian Configuration :: Installing Audio Firmware And ALSA Config

Oct 28, 2015

I know very little about Debian but have an ASUS T100TA tablet which runs fairly well under Debian 8 Jessie (kernel 3.16.0-4-686-pae). I used the following guide successfully to activate the wireless but am having trouble with the audio section of it.URL...

First, I went here and downloaded the file called 'NEW T100_B.state'.URL....

Then I copied it to /var/lib/alsa/asound.state and ran 'alsactl restore' which reported that i had no soundcards.I then downloaded and expanded linux-firmware-master-intel.tar.gz but am not sure what to do with these files. I copied them to /lib/modules/3.16.0-4-686-pae/kernel/drivers/firmware as they are specific for this kernel, but they don't seem to be doing anything and 'alsactl restore' still tells me that I don't have a soundcard. What do I need to do with these files?

Debian Multimedia :: Connect A Sansa Clip Zip With Rockbox Firmware?

Feb 25, 2015

I am trying to connect a Sansa Clip Zip with rockbox firmware. Debian does not recognise/automount the drives (4gb of internal mem and 32gb sdhc card) whereas Mint 17 had no problem with them.

Are there additional libraries needed? I believe the filesystem is FAT32 rather than anything more exotic so not sure why it doesn't recognise the drives. The clip zip charges but doesn't mount.

Debian Hardware :: Load Firmware For BCM Card With No Internet Connection

Jun 19, 2014

I performed an update that has caused issues with my wireless. Errors relating to wireless firmware missing and consequently no internet connection.

I've been through this before with my 2008 macbook air BCM card whose firmware isn't included in installs. In the past I've manually installed the b43-fwcutter package an extracted some firmware... That doesn't seem to be working here.

I've used [URL]i ... cefirmware to troubleshoot. I have not been able to get b43 or wl to work.

I attempted to install the "firmware-b43-installer_015-14.1_all.deb" package; however it depends on wget to download and install "broadcom-wl-5.100.138.tar.bz2" from wlfinger.com.

So I manually installed b43-fwcutter and used it to extract the broadcom-wl-5 file referenced....

modprobe wl says wl doesn't exist and modprobe b43 doesn't seem to work.

Details:
Code: Select allname-a
Linux air 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.57-3+deb7u2 x86_64 GNU/Linux
lspci -nn
02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4321 802.11a/b/g/n [14e4:4328] (rev 05)

Other things I've tried:

Code: Select allsudo dpkg -i broadcom-sta-dkms_5.100.82.112-8_all.deb
Setting up broadcom-sta-dkms (5.100.82.112-8) ...
Loading new broadcom-sta-5.100.82.112 DKMS files...
Building only for 3.2.0-4-amd64
Module build for the currently running kernel was skipped since the
kernel source for this kernel does not seem to be installed.

I tried something from broadcom that produced make errors "/lib/modules/3.2.0-4-amd64/build: No such file or directory"... I think this means I need some kernel development packages, broadcom says:

Code: Select allOn Fedora install 'kernel-devel' (Development Package for building kernel
modules to match the kernel) from the Package Manager (System->
Administration-> Add/Remove Software).

On Ubuntu, you will need headers and tools.  Try these commands:
# apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic
# apt-get build-dep linux

I'm having trouble install this stuff without the net and not sure installing generic headers and build-dep outside of apt-get is the way to go... linux-headers-3.2.0-4-amd64_3.2.57-3+deb7u2_amd64.deb has alot of dependencies that would take me a while to find and download.

Hardware :: Debian Squeeze And RAID Firmware After Kernel Update

Mar 20, 2011

I've installed Debian Squeeze on my server several days ago. During install process installer asked me to provide USB flash drive with firmware aic94xx-seq.fw. All went fine. Today I installed all updates to my system with "U" in aptitude. Aptitude installed kernel update 2.6.32-5 and created initrd accordingly. But now I can't boot up my system because it can't find LVM volumes on harddrive connected to Adaptec RAID card. How can I boot my system now? I have USB with firmware.

I have netboot CD. Unfortunately when I tried to edit boot records in grub I found that there is no my old kernel anymore. The only kernel grub sees is the new vmlinuz kernel and new initrd How take make my server alive?

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 :: How To Force Load Realtek-firmware Driver During Install

Dec 25, 2015

Now, my issue is that I have no access to ethernet in my apartment so I need to rely on wifi for my install. But during the install when it is looking for the network hardware it never sees the TP-Link Dongle and never asks if I wan to load the firmware. I even tried it with the CD image that has the non-free drivers included but it never asks for the drivers. Any other distro, like Linux Mint 7.3, sees the dongle fine.

So is there a way to force load the realtek-firmware drivers during install?
