I was installing mdadm, sample output below
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-2.6.32-5-686
W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/tigon/tg3_tso.bin for module tg3
W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/tigon/tg3.bin for module tg3
ls -l /lib/firmware/tigon/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 32 26 janv. 12:40 tg3.bin ->
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 3884 14 oct. 2009 tg3_tso5.bin
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 32 26 janv. 12:40 tg3_tso.bin ->
Original tigon added during the debian installation was tg3_tso5.bin, and
the link were hadded by myself.
Followed by apt-get install --reinstall mdadm, and complete without "W:
Possible missing firmware"
I hope, it'll be helpful
