Hi,

I tried to compile my kernel and he fails on a previously available firmware driver (see avbove ). In the firmware it is not anymore present.
Anyone an explication for that and can it be fixed ?
Previous kernels/firmware did compile perfectly with the same config.
i need this for module r8169
I have seen it on Ubuntu too.

poe_1957,

Those files are still in the linux-firmware that I have.

As linux-firmware has got so big, its possible to select what gets installed. There are instructions at the end of the ebuild.
Look into the /etc/portage/savedconfig/... for the configuration file.

The sys-firmware entry lists what is to be installed. Its very easy to get that wrong.
Its so easy in fact, I gave up trying to get it right and made my root filesystem bigger instead.

I think someone should write a selection program that let's you choose the firmware to install.
But it schould contain the driver + for what hardware it is used to construct a savedconfig for portage. Instead of now that you need to consult different websites and pages before you know which driver to use. ;-)
It is strange how much problems you have now due to the fact Linux is supporting soo many architectures. in 1993 you did know only one thing : your architecture is probably not supported but maybe you have luck and you find a driver is it not in the kermel than maybe somewhere else in another unix system....
Now you have the drivers and you cannot find them anymore in the wood. ;-)
I use the savedconfig file but even then it stands in the list with the correct path...

DAMMM !!!! I forgot the rtl8168fp-3.fw
BUT he says he has no rule to make from rtl_nic/rtl8125a-3.fw the .o file. even with the previously missing file.
every time.

I find it strange that (see above list he installs only this list amdgpu is missing f.e. it should normally install everything in the above list but he doesn't.
Code:
emerge -av linux-firmware

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:
