AddingFreeFirmware

  • clone the firmware tree.

$ git clone git://kernel.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/linux-firmware.git
$ cd linux-firmware
  • look for the current release branch

$ git branch -a 
* master
  remotes/origin/HEAD -> origin/master
  remotes/origin/jaunty
  remotes/origin/karmic
  remotes/origin/lucid
  remotes/origin/master
  • check out the branch for the current release (in this case lucid)

$ git checkout lucid
  • copy the firmware and license file to the appropriate directories.
  • make sure the license is a redistributable license.
  • if required run dos2unix on the LICENCE.XXX file to remove any control characters.
  • git add/commit/push files and submit a pull request to kernel-team@lists.ubuntu.com.
