Bug#651443: Firmware for Adaptec Starfire missing in Squeeze
The firmware files required when using an Adaptec Starfire-based network
card using the kernel driver starfire.ko are missing. They are in
neither the linux-image package, nor firmware-linux-free or
Without the firmware the card is detected but attempting to bring it up
[ 354.472460] starfire 0000:0b:04.0: firmware: requesting adaptec/starfire_rx.bin
[ 354.475973] starfire: Failed to load firmware "adaptec/starfire_rx.bin"
Additionally I used apt-get source to on linux-source-2.6,
firmware-linux-free and firmware-linux-nonfree, and none of the source
packages contained the firmware source.
Finally I downloaded vanilla source of linux-18.104.22.168.tar.bz2 from
ftp.kernel.org, and the source for this firmware IS contained there.
