[SOLVED] Debian / non-free-firmware

Debian apparently now recommends users who already have non-free and/or contrib in their sources to add the non-free-firmware entry to ensure that future access to non-free software continues:

deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free non-free-firmware

Do I have to do the same for the Devuan-sources-list?

Only if you need non-free firmware.

Devuan recommends using the actual release names rather than the generic release names.

I have been Devuanated, and my practice in the art of Devuanism shall continue until my Devuanization is complete. Until then, I will strive to continue in my understanding of Devuanchology, Devuanprocity, and Devuanivity.

Re: [SOLVED] Debian / non-free-firmware

Okay...

I just added that to my ceres ... unstable sources.list.

After doing so, I had 8 updates to items that would normally be upgraded without that item in the sources.list. yikes

So, on my end, it appears that it should be added to the sources.list.

Re: [SOLVED] Debian / non-free-firmware

Don't do this with Chimaera:

W: Skipping acquire of configured file 'non-free-firmware/binary-amd64/Packages'
 as repository 'http://deb.devuan.org/merged chimaera InRelease'
 doesn't have the component 'non-free-firmware'
 (component misspelt in sources.list?)

Edit: reset since code is too stupid to wrap lines to the page

Re: [SOLVED] Debian / non-free-firmware

Yes (No??? tongue ), it doesn't work on my chimaera installation. The OP referenced Debian unstable, so it probably hasn't worked its way down yet. If it does work its way down.

Unfortunately, I don't have a daedalus installation to try it on, but it does work on ceres.

Re: [SOLVED] Debian / non-free-firmware

New feature dripping down from Debian into testing/unstable = Daedalus & Ceres.

Re: [SOLVED] Debian / non-free-firmware

This is all resulting from the General Resolution vote about non-free firmware for the upcoming Debian bookworm release:

https://www.debian.org/vote/2022/vote_003

(Don't try to understand the Condorcet voting system, it will just make your head hurt.)

Re: [SOLVED] Debian / non-free-firmware

I have added the line and commented out everything else for now until Daedalus is stable:

deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged daedalus main non-free contrib non-free-firmware

Nala works well with it:

nala update && nala upgrade && nala clean && nala autopurge && nala autoremove

Everything looks good.

With Daedalus (descended from Bookworm) it is available.
