Firmware missing?

Hello!
I’ve had these messages while installing kernel 5.18 today. Should I worry? I was able to boot on kernel 5.18.

==> WARNING: Possibly missing firmware for module: qla2xxx
==> WARNING: Possibly missing firmware for module: qla1280
==> WARNING: Possibly missing firmware for module: bfa
==> WARNING: Possibly missing firmware for module: qed
==> WARNING: Possibly missing firmware for module: xhci_pci

Hello @Slug :wink:

No, that are firmware which were split out long time ago. That are firmware for very specific hardware and normally on modern systems not needed. If you are annoyed by this message, install them from the AUR:

pamac build mkinitcpio-firmware

AUR (en) - mkinitcpio-firmware

The reason for this message is the fallback kernel. Its initcpio holds everything, while the default kernel initcpio only holds what is needed on your system.
