[SOLVED] WARNING: Possibly missing firmware

Hi,

During a couple of recent updates, I'll get the following warnings:
[2019-03-01 22:29] [ALPM-SCRIPTLET] ==> WARNING: Possibly missing firmware for module: aic94xx
[2019-03-01 22:29] [ALPM-SCRIPTLET] ==> WARNING: Possibly missing firmware for module: wd719x
Same thing for the updates I did on 2019-03-04
[2019-03-04 17:43] [ALPM-SCRIPTLET] ==> WARNING: Possibly missing firmware for module: aic94xx
[2019-03-04 17:43] [ALPM-SCRIPTLET] ==> WARNING: Possibly missing firmware for module: wd719x
Searching the web, I came across https://gist.github.com/imrvelj/c65cd5c ... 4f5a3f7a6d regarding the exact same issue



But before doing anything on my own, I wanted to consult you about this.

Since my system seems to be running just fine, do you think I should just ignore these warnings or I should proceed as indicated in the instructions above?

As you self say

Code: Select all

Since my system seems to be running just fine
imo you should just ignore these warnings.
aic94xx is a driver for: https://storage.microsemi.com/en-us/sup ... sas-44300/
Have you that in your system?
The same for the wd719x driver it's for Western Digital hardware, possible a WD7193 SCSI card, do you have these card in your system?

No, I have none of the above in my system.
My system runs great and I am happy that there is nothing wrong with it.

Thank you so much for replying and putting my mind at ease.

I have also two of those...

installing or not installing does not change anything.

Being lazy and having a whatever attitude I do not install it.
