I had installed Stretch from a DVD set.

I've not _intentionally_ deleted any log files.
Where would the desired information be?

# grep firmware /var/log/installer/syslog

iwlwifi would be a likely candidate. The firmware packages
contain numerous iwlwifi-*-[0-9].ucode files.


One line of the output is:
Oct 17 17:38:39 check-missing-firmware: missing firmware files
(iwlwifi-6000-4.ucode) for iwlwifi

That is consistent with the barely legible portion of my handwritten note.

Thank you.


The above firmware file is provided by the package firmware-iwlwifi from
the non-free repository.

Thank you.
