· I first install Ubuntu 20.04 and upgrade the kernel to 5.8, then 5.8.11 and now I'm on the 5.9.0 rc6. In both 5.8.11 and 5.9.0 rc6 there is a lot of warnings during the installation because of missing files in /lib/firmware/amdgpu/ .
Normally, the appropriate firmware package like firmware-linuxwill fix them; but if using a backported or custom kernel, you might need a newer version of some firmware than is available in the distribution's firmware packages.
Installation of new "kernel-firmware" package files conflicts with file from older version of kernel-firmware" package. Solution Verified - Updated 2014-07-23T09:03:37+00:00 -
· But running "make firmware_install" sends the firmware to /lib/firmware and I'm concerned this could interfere with the official -firmware or -fw packages provided by Slackware. And even if I got the firmware to a separate directory automatically, I don't know of any way to tell the kernel to look in a specific directory for that kernel's version at boot-time.

· /lib/firmware conflicts with custom kernel Hi, I followed the Wiki's guide to ABS building of a custom kernel. Normally I wouldn't care too much if it was maintained by pacman or not, but sadly it HAS to be for the nvidia driver to properly work (and probably my wireless driver's firmware …
/lib/firmware/$(uname -r) - Firmware provided by a package, specific for a kernel. /lib/firmware/ - Firmware provided by a package, valid for all kernels. /usr/local/lib/firmware - Location for manually installed firmware.
· The Linux kernel can update the CPU’s firmware without the BIOS update at boot time. Processor microcode is stored in RAM and kernel update the microcode during every boot. These microcode updates from Intel/AMD needed to fix bugs or apply errata to avoid CPU bugs. This page shows how to install AMD or Intel microcode update using package manager or processor microcode …
· To make a long story short: Ubuntu’s udev package has customizations that always look in /lib/firmware/$(uname -r) first. This policy is being handled in userspace.
I'm compiling a custom kernel under Ubuntu and I'm running into the problem that my kernel doesn't seem to know where to look for firmware. Under Ubuntu 8.04, firmware is tied to kernel version the same way driver modules are.
The right to do something does not mean that doing it is right.
