Do you have the firmware file it says there? Here, the file is included in package firmware-linux-free, but I am on debian testing, which means a newer version of the kernel, the package and the firmware file as well

If it is not on the mentioned package, and you can not install it somehow from the repo (eg it does not exist in backports repo), you are out of luck and better move to 7 when it comes out.

You can always download the file and place it there by hand, but i can not guarantee it will work.

Dear Sir.

Thank's your reply.

I'm try to install firmware-linux-free package. see below
Code:
aptitude install firmware-linux-free
Next I'm reboot my box. But still have a firmware broblem.

I guess, need more operation for this issues. For example rebuild initramfs and etc.

Please advise to me.

Thank you.

Well... since the binary firmware you need is not included in package linux-firmware-free of the stable branch you can do one of these.
Either get (extract) the file from the package testing/unstable provides and place it on /lib/formware, or install the entire package getting it from stable/testing or... move to testing and wait for it's freeze to get stable. It will happen in the following months I hope.

Thank's guys.

I'm port from centos 6.3(Using kernel version linux-2.6.32-279.19.1.el6) to vanilla linux kernel Ver 2.6.34.

It is OK.

This issue was closed.
