Title: Provide firmware package ( non-oss )

openSUSE-11.3: Rejected by Andreas Jaeger (a_jaeger)
reject date: 2010-11-08 16:35:01
reject reason: Not done for 11.3.
Priority
Requester: Important

openSUSE-11.4: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Mandatory

Requested by: Denny Beyer (lumnis)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
We should provide a firmware package for all drivers requiring one, eg.
many tv cards or scanners etc.
Even better would be if this package would be automatically installed
(or the user will be prompted to install) if a device has been plugged
in for the first time.
Firmware files are relatively small compared to harddisk size, so one
package for all tv cards, one for scanners etc. should do.

What exactly is missing? Please list some explicit missing firmware
files.

+ Scanner firmware is usually no free software which we are allowed to re-
+ distribute.
+ It is usually different if a particular person owns a particular
+ scanner. Then he is usually allowed to download firmware for his
+ model.
