Dell XPS - missing firmware

Hi,

that came after last parrot-upgrade:

update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-5.1.0-parrot1-3t-amd64
W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/i915/icl_dmc_ver1_07.bin for module i915
W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/i915/bxt_huc_ver01_8_2893.bin for module i915
Configuring sandbox profiles....
Sandbox profiles updated!
Scanning application launchers
Updating active launchers
Done

i have fixed this by cloning the intel firware repo from kernel.org to my machine and then copy the missing files to /lib/firmware/i915.

git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git
cd linux-firmware/i915
sudo cp bxt_huc_ver01_8_2893.bin /lib/firmware/i915/
sudo cp icl_dmc_ver1_07.bin /lib/firmware/i915/
rm -rf linux-firmware
sudo reboot

Maybe there is a simpler way for fixing this then let me know! :wink:

W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/amdgpu/vega20_ta.bin for module amdgpu

You can find firmware at linux-firmware git

It looks like the missing firmware files are there.

You can clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git and copy the missing files to /lib/firmware/amdgpu .
