Missing firmware on Acer Aspire 1

July 24, 2019 — BarryK

As reported, EasyOS is now running nicely on my new-ish Acer Aspire 1 laptop. Including wi-fi, however 'dmesg' does report some firmware for wi-fi and bluetooth is missing.

I got /lib/firmware/regulatory.db and regulatory.p7s, now provided in the 'wireless-regdb' PET package. Haven't put in all of that package, just the firmware. I got the files from slackware64 current.

/lib/firmware/intel/ibt-hw-37.8.10-fw- and ibt-hw-37.8.bseq have been added to the 'firmware_linux_all' PET package.
