I also intend to upload an updated firmware-nonfree package (version 0.28+squeeze1): * Add VIA VT6656 firmware for use with vt6656 driver In Linux 2.6.32 this driver had embedded firmware; we removed that and did not build the driver. In linux-2.6 version 2.6.32-31 (point release 6.0.1) we updated the driver to support external firmware and started building it. * Add Realtek RTL8105E-1 and RTL8168E-1/2/3 firmware for use with r8169 Some of the new chips supported by the updated r8169 driver in linux-2.6 version 2.6.32-36 should have these firmware patches.
