Module error

Moin,

The list is also getting longer and longer every day.

What actually happens when it affects all components, does it still boot but nothing works anymore?

==> WARNING: Possibly missing firmware for module: wd719x
==> WARNING: Possibly missing firmware for module: bfa
==> WARNING: Possibly missing firmware for module: qla1280
==> WARNING: Possibly missing firmware for module: aic94xx
==> WARNING: Possibly missing firmware for module: qed
==> WARNING: Possibly missing firmware for module: qla2xxx
==> WARNING: Possibly missing firmware for module: xhci_pci

Ok, at best it only affects old components that are no longer supported, Linus kicks them out of the kernel, and we boot in half the time :slight_smile:

cee you, stephan

It is safe to ignore those warnings. You can install the firmware but if the component is a part of your PC you are just wasting hard drive space.

“if the component is a part of your PC, you are just wasting hard disk space”.
How true, especially as more and more moves to the cloud and we need less and less hard drive space. Modern fast SSD cards also have less space and almost everything has moved to the CPU or SOC…

I still believe you should be using physical storage as well as cloud.

“I still believe that you should use both physical storage and the cloud.”

I agree, you don’t have your head just for cutting hair.

I also doubt that the cloud knows what is stored in my head and should be backupped.

doubt > dobbie ? confusing…, more coffee

Sometimes I think that’s all it’s good for.

Dobbie, think about what you do with your fellow citizens who don’t have hair on their heads because they think hair is totally overrated
