Sources list and firmware drivers: non-free

Sources list

As the siduction iso contains only dfsg free software, you will probably want to add contrib non-free to your /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.list :

mcedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.list

Your lines should now look something like this, depending on your choice of mirror (refer to List of Debian Servers and mirrors and current status):

# Debian
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian unstable main contrib non-free
# deb-src http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian unstable main contrib non-free

After altering your sources you need to apt-get update before searching for or installing new packages, (apt-get update is good practice before installing any package).

Firmware detection - non-free

To install non-free firmware, (assumes contrib non-free has been added to sources):

apt-get update
apt-get install firmware-linux firmware-linux-free firmware-linux-nonfree

The required firmware can be determined with the following device/ firmware enumeration or by using the fw-detect script (packaged in siduction-scripts).

$ fw-detect

The output of fw-detect describes the commands needed to install and activate the firmware:

Example:

#Detected driver that requires firmware to operate
#Follow these instructions to obtain the correct firmware
# and activate the zd1211rw driver:
apt-get update
apt-get install zd1211-firmware
modprobe -r zd1211rw
modprobe zd1211rw

To install firmware from git repos, you need to:

apt-get install git

non-free firmware debs on a stick

Should you need to prefetch firmware .debs, to put on a usb-key to transfer the files to another computer, you can download them as either a zip or tar.gz file from http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unofficial/non-free/firmware/sid/current/ and extract it to a folder called firmware, you should see a number of .deb files.

Next download http://packages.debian.org/sid/firmware-linux-free*.deb and add it to all the other debs in the folder you extracted the non-free firmware to. Then transfer them with the stick to the computer that needs the non-free firmware and:

dpkg -i firmware-linux-nonfree*.deb

We try to provide packages for legally redistributable firmware from our non-free repositories, but not all vendors allow this.
