Firmwares on kernel drivers

Official sources for the firmware files

In the past, several firmwares were added to the Linux Kernel. In order to improve the firmware submission proccess, those firmwares were moved to a separate Linux Kernel firmware tree, and will be removed some day from the Kernel tree. No new firmware is added nowadays at the Kernel tree. The Linux Kernel firmware tree is used by distributions to prepare their kernel firmware packages. On other words, if the firmware and the driver is on the proper trees, and the device has an unique USB/PCI ID, known by the driver, making a device to work on Linux can be as easy as plugging it.

If you work on a company that manufacturers the supported chips or devices, please help us to support the drivers by giving us the right to distribute the firmwares. Please see the Development: How to submit patches page, at the Firmware submission item for instructions on how to collaborate. In summary, a firmware to be added at the Linux Kernel firmware tree need to allow distribution rights.

The most common models for firmwares distributed as binary-only (non GPL'd firmwares) are:

There are also some examples of firmwares released with the Source:
