Firmware Package Split
April 10, 2017
With today's newest changes to AOSC OS packages, we have decided to split the
firmware-nonfree package to free and non-free portions, with the
firmware-nonfree packages (pre-installed with any system release) containing only non-free firmware files, and a new
firmware-free package containing "free" firmware files.
A normal system upgrade may not install the new
firmware-free package automatically. If you started encountering issues regarding missing firmware after you upgraded your system, please check if you have installed
Both packages will be pre-installed with future system releases.
