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

Thanks ~everyone:

Do I gather correctly that Brian is the resident, sarcastic, cranky-pants herein?

I stopped reading his replies to folks.

.... anyways:

I hear you on this @Peter^

I guess I'm kinda with Debian, in that I really want to know which non-free bits are being added in.

Providing a directory with EVERYTHING in there for it to be auto-loaded everywhere scares me.

@Étienne -- I'll try the -22.ucode alone one next -- but your warning on not using 9.7 strikes home.

I'm going to do that next  ... getting the 9.7 .iso going, that is.

Thanks for the helpful replies!

the last time I had such a problem (Buster net install using wifi) I bookmarked this

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.



* 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?



 * 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.


    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:


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
