[DE] non-free-firmware
« on: 2023/01/30, 16:53:31 »
Hi, offenbar gibt es in sid nun  eine neue subsection neben main, contrib und non-free: non-free-firmware.

Ich weiß weiter nichts darüber ausser dass es diese neue sektion nun gibt.

Ok, you can't code, but you still might be able to write a bug report for Debian's sake

The Debian project has taken the decision in 2022-10 to create a new repository component non-free-firmware, and include its content on installation media for the upcoming Debian release bookworm to make things easier for our users.
The information below still applies to the oldstable and stable releases (a.k.a. buster and bullseye), but might be outdated for weekly and nightly media of testing published in the coming weeks, with the situation changing rapidly while the decision is being implemented.
Please bear with us until the situation has settled and can be documented here. And if you want to help out this transition, feel free to follow the mailing list thread.
Beispiel für / Example for https://deb.debian.org/debian/pool/ :

Code: [Select]
deb      https://deb.debian.org/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free non-free-firmware

If you did not add the non-free-firmware repo to your Debian sources, today's upgrade to nvidia-driver 525.85.12-1 will fail. This is because you also need the firmware-nvidia-gsp 525.85.12-1 package from non-free-firmware.

DE: Wenn Sie das non-free-firmware Repo nicht zu Ihren Debian-Quellen hinzugefügt haben, wird das heutige Upgrade auf den nvidia-driver 525.85.12-1 fehlschlagen. Dies liegt daran, dass Sie auch das Paket firmware-nvidia-gsp 525.85.12-1 von non-free-firmware benötigen.

I can confirm that adding the non-free-firmware let me update the nvidia drivers.

Just changed it with `vim /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.list` and changed the line as per:

Code: [Select]
deb      https://deb.debian.org/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free non-free-firmware
