firmware installer for the b43 driver

This package downloads and installs the firmware needed by the b43 kernel driver for some Broadcom 43xx wireless network cards. . Supported chipsets: * BCM4306/3 (chip revision 3 only); * BCM4311 (NOT PCI Id 14e4:4313); * BCM4312; * BCM43131; * BCM4318; * BCM4321 (only partial support, not all versions tested); * BCM43217; * BCM4322 (only partial support for some versions, not all versions tested); * BCM43222 (not all versions tested); * BCM43224 (not all versions tested); * BCM43225; * BCM43227; * BCM43228; * BCM4331; * BCM47xx (detection not reliable, may not support all versions).


firmware files used by the linux-wlan-ng driver

linux-wlan-ng is a set of drivers and utilities that is intended to provide the full range of IEEE 802.11 MAC management capabilities for use in user-mode utilities and scripts. The package currently supports the Intersil 802.11b Prism2, Prism2.5, and Prism3 reference designs for PCMCIA, PCI, and USB. Additionally, the package includes support for the PLX9052 based PCI to PCMCIA adapter with a few different PCMCIA cards. . This package doesn't contain the firmware files, but a script to download the upstream source tree and build a deb that contains them. Note that only some adapters really need a firmware file and that firmware files are not completely free (in the sense of freely redistributable), that's why this package exists. . This package is only relevant for PCMCIA and PCI cards, if you have a USB card, install the prism2-usb-firmware-installer package instead.


firmware files for the prism2_usb kernel driver

prism2-usb-firmware-installer will at the time of its own installation download the firmware files for the prism2_usb devices from the upstream code repository and convert them to the format used by the kernel modules since 2.6.32. . Note that only some adapters really need a firmware file and that firmware files are not completely free (in the sense of freely redistributable), which is why this package exists.


Mali kernel driver for midgard hardware in DKMS format.

This provides the kernel module for the ARM Mali 'midgard' GPU series in dkms format. This covers the 6xx and 7xx GPU hardware devices. You need this kernel module as well the binary drivers to make the hardware work.


NVIDIA binary kernel module support files

This package contains support files used for any version of the NVIDIA kernel module. It sets up udev and ConsoleKit rules, ensures the NVIDIA control device is created, associates the NVIDIA card with the correct kernel module, and performs any other tasks required for the module to work properly.


x86 virtualization solution - kernel module sources for dkms

VirtualBox is a free x86 virtualization solution allowing a wide range of x86 operating systems such as Windows, DOS, BSD or Linux to run on a Linux system. . This package provides the source code for the virtualbox kernel module to be build with dkms. Kernel sources or headers are required to compile this module.


x86 virtualization solution - guest addition module source for dkms

VirtualBox is a free x86 virtualization solution allowing a wide range of x86 operating systems such as Windows, DOS, BSD or Linux to run on a Linux system. . This package provides the source code for the virtualbox guest addition kernel modules to be build with dkms. Kernel sources or headers are required to compile these modules.


x86 virtualization solution - kernel module source

VirtualBox is a free x86 virtualization solution allowing a wide range of x86 operating systems such as Windows, DOS, BSD or Linux to run on a Linux system. . This package provides the source code for the virtualbox kernel module. The virtualbox package is also required in order to make use of these modules. Kernel sources or headers are required to compile this module. . The source is placed under /usr/src, and after decompression it can be built to produce a virtualbox-modules-_KVERS_ providing "virtualbox-modules" package.
