Re: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/nvidia

The messages are letting you know that some of your hardware can use non-free firmware. You would need to enable contrib and non-free repos, update, and then install firmware-misc-nonfree if you wanted it. I don't know if it will make a difference in how your vid card performs.
