As Intel appears to realize, the best way to to make sure things work is
send needed drivers upstream.
I'll say I'm slightly surprised such drivers were nessisary. Often generic
drivers will work. Although if these
chipsets are fairly dfferent than the others that exist, it makes sense.
Obviously specific drivers are better
If you have comments or concerns, please let me know!
if the generic drivers do not support all features, etc.
If at all possible these drivers should be available as .deb's that conform
to Debian policy. This helps to ensure
that the drivers do not mess up other packages.
It is important that resellers note that these drivers are installed. The
Debian project is obviously unable to guarantee support for such packages.
