Firmware PET for 5.10 kernel

December 23, 2020 — BarryK

EasyOS has a script, /usr/local/firmware/extract-fw-all, that finds all firmware needed by the currently-running kernel. What you do is hunt for all the firmware that can be found online, and /usr/local/firmware/bk-notes has links to find it, and copy it all to /lib/firmware. Then run the 'extract-fw-all' script and it will copy out all firmware needed by the kernel, if exists, from /lib/firmware, to a new folder 'fnd-firmware'. It will also create a file 'missing-firmware' a list of firmware that it could not find.

'fnd-firmware' can then be made into a PET, which is what I have done:

...63.9MB, massive. Note that the PET is gzip-compressed.

This PET will be in the next release of EasyOS Dunfell-series.
