Unable to install Debian 10 on Lenovo x1 Extreme Gen 2

Postby denito » 2020-03-27 23:45

Hi,
I'm using this image: http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unoff ... etinst.iso.
The error I got is "The missing firmware files are: iwlwifi-cc-a0-50.ucode iwlwifi-cc-a0-49.ucode". I tried to search for these drivers in the Intel web site, but I can't find them. The card is 'Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200'
Can you help me with this?

Regards, Deni

I found the drivers here: git clone https://chromium.googlesource.com/chrom ... x-firmware

Your link is broken, I presume you mean https://chromium.googlesource.com/chrom ... x-firmware

And firmware is not the same as drivers.

Those aren't even in the official kernel git tree: https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/ke ... e.git/tree or the latest Ubuntu firmware.

It was my thought that that chipset also needs a newer kernel, where the drivers actually live. Did the install and wi-fi actually work?
