Highlights

This week is relatively quiet. The new Qubes Video Companion v1.1.1.1 from last week is built and uploaded for more testing templates. We only have update to Linux Firmware package.

Details

  • linux-firmware v20240513-1 - These are the upstream upgrades, fixes, updates mostly submitted by Hardware vendors (Intel, AMD, et. al) directly to kernel to add better support for their products. Sometimes bug fixes & improvements by individual users & projects. The details of all changes could be found on Fedora website. I have seen a a Github issue on i915 which might be related.

I have seen a a Github issue on i915 which might be related.

I am not certain. Release notes by Peter Robinson has hints on ath10k, ath11k & ath12k series (WCN3990, WCN6855 hw2.0, WCN6855/WCN6750/IPQ8074,WCN3990/QCA9888/QCA4019/QCA6174, WCN7850 chips). No reference to ath10k. That Github issue might need more information (VID/PID …).

p.s.: Also those Firmware are for dom0. Mostly affecting storage, video and sometimes sound devices. Mostly devices attached and initialized by dom0. The firmware for USB Network interface should depend on linux-firmware package version of Template VM of sys-usb and sys-net.
