Intrepid's 2.6.27 kernels conflict because of firmware

Bug #262115 reported by Brian Rogers on 2008-08-28
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
linux (Ubuntu)
Ben Collins
linux-ports (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

The new 2.6.27 kernel installs firmware right in /lib/firmware, not in a subdirectory named after the kernel version. Any two versions will therefore conflict.

Thanks for pointing this out. In-kernel firmware should be installed under version specific subdirectories. Will be fixed in next upload.
