Re: (Stuck! Fresh 9.6 install) iwlwifi-8625-26.ucode <- Can not find/what is it? Spot of help please?




the last time I had such a problem (Buster net install using wifi) I bookmarked this
https://wiki.debian.org/Firmware#Firmware_during_the_installation

I believe restarting the installer (from USB) with a second USB inserted with the firmware solved it... needed packages were found and used.

sorry, I don't have my notes, and my memory is crap today

Hello folks:

When I hit the networking section on a fresh install of 9.6 (full install .ISO, not live),

I'm told to insert a USB of these non-free bits.

   iwlwifi-8625-26.ucode, iwlwifi-8625-25.ucode, iwlwifi-8625-24.ucode, iwlwifi-8625-23.ucode, iwlwifi-8625-22.ucode


The Problem is - I can't find 26-to-23 anywhere online.

My research attempts are below.


Questions:

==============

* What *are* 26, 25, 24, 23 for? I'm guessing Intel wifi; as that's what I believe -22 is for.

   But I don't see 26 to 23 listed anywhere...

* wouldn't it be useful for the installer to Also say what exact hardware it is, that is requiring various bits & pieces?


Hardware:

===========

 * 1 yr old Intel NUC, i7; new.

 * Crucial memory, new.

 * Kingston A400 SSD, new.

 * aforementioned full 9.6 Stretch install .iso on a USB stick. I'm using the graphical install.


  My research attempts before emailing the list, are below.

==================================================

1. THIS is a good resource, from a fellow with a similar Jessie-related problem.

https://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/debian-26/how-to-provide-non-free-firmware-files-to-the-debian-jessie-installer-4175542680/

    However neither this, nor the /stretch versions have anything on 26-23.

2. The archive files that I found with -22, do not include any 26-23 files.

3. Package Search turns up nothing:

https://packages.debian.org/search?suite=stretch&arch=any&mode=filename&searchon=contents&keywords=8625

4. Intel's current wireless section only has -22 files.

    (also see 2. above)

5. A flat out search turns up nothing.

A spot of help please?

Thank you
