Updated nonfree firmwares including support for kernel 5.6 series drivers



Comment 1 Thomas Backlund 2020-04-20 20:50:44 CEST
For testers, just check that everything still works with kernel 5.5 series

MGA7-64 Plasma on Lenovo B50
No installation issues.
Rebooted after installation. This laptop has all Intel stuff (wifi, graphics, sound) and all is well.

MGA7-32 Xfce on Dell Inspiron 5100

No installation issues.

This laptop uses old radeon graphics and an old Atheros-based wifi card. No issues here.

MGA7-64 on Dell Dimension e520

No installation issues.

This desktop uses a Radeon HD 8490 graphics card and a usb Radeon rtl8192cu-based wifi dongle. No issues noted.

A bit of history that some may find interesting: This wifi dongle refused to work with late Mageia 2 and all of Mageia 3. By some time in Mageia 5, it had started working, and has not stopped since. I believe the issue with the earlier Mageias was in the firmware we were providing at the time.

OK 64 bit on my workstation "svarten": Mainboard: Sabertooth P67, CPU: i7-3770, RAM 16G, Nvidia GTX760 (GK104) using nvidia-current

- ralink-firmware-20200316-1.mga7.nonfree.noarch
- rtlwifi-firmware-20200316-1.mga7.nonfree.noarch

And rebooted

I have already upgraded to nvidia-current-430.64-8.mga7 and virtualbox 6.0.20 in testing.  Kernel is still kernel-5.5.15-desktop-3

Everything still works. I do not have radeon nor use wifi on this system.
