Debian installers come with non-free firmware

Οι προγραμματιστές του Debian αποφάσισαν να υιοθετήσουν το μη δωρεάν υλικολογισμικό (non-free firmware), λαμβάνοντας υπόψη τον αυξανόμενο αριθμό συσκευών που ενώ διαθέτουν drivers Linux ανοιχτού κώδικα, απαιτούν και firmware κλειστού κώδικα για καλύτερη λειτουργικότητα. non free firmware

Η vote on the matter of the non-free firmware is complete and the votes have been counted. debian votes option 5 as the winner:

"Change SC for non-free firmware in installer."

“Change SC for non-free firmware in installer, one installer.”

So soon we will see Debian Installers including the option to install non-free firmware. This means they will be able to load/use it automatically where necessary, while the user will be informed about it.

With the new method users will be able to easily use their graphics cards, network adapters and more.

It should be noted that developers' choice will help with security, as there are CPUs that require updated closed-source microcode.

I am personally very happy with this decision. I'm using Debian and was waiting for the poll results. The developers' choice will allow for a more pleasant experience for Debian, similar to that found in other Linux distributions.

The new solution is described in Debian Wiki. The Best Technology Site in Greece
