Missing firmware for device


Problem

A device on my computer does not work with PureOS. Logs say something about missing firmware.

Check

PureOS is designed to support only devices which do not require non-free/proprietary binary drivers or firmware, meaning it does not have such drivers/firmware. Check if your computer have such devices (AMD or nVidia graphics, Intel or newer Broadcom wireless lan cards, etc).

Solution

Check if the firmware-linux-free package is installed, install it if not. If the device requires non-free/proprietary binary drivers/firmware, it won't work in PureOS.
