"warnig" when updating

Hi everyone, this is my first topic and I hope to be as clear as possible.
when I update my system, I always get these warnings:

WARNING: Possibly missing firmware for module: 'aic94xx'
==> WARNING: Possibly missing firmware for module: 'bfa'
==> WARNING: Possibly missing firmware for module: 'qed'
==> WARNING: Possibly missing firmware for module: 'qla1280'
==> WARNING: Possibly missing firmware for module: 'qla2xxx'
==> WARNING: Possibly missing firmware for module: 'wd719x'
==> WARNING: Possibly missing firmware for module: 'xhci_pci'

I would like to understand how to solve the problem, thank you very much to whoever will help me.
I have attached the output of the garuda-inxi command.

Welcome aboard, as for those messages just means you don’t have those components. You can just ignore those messages.

okay thank you very much!!

Those are firmware modules for old, mostly outdated or “odd” hardware that the kernel no longer includes. Appropriate drivers can be installed for them if you happen to need them. Occasionally someone does. Additionally, if the warnings bug you too much, there is an AUR pkg to suppress their output. :smiley:

Sometimes it’s nice to know why something, especially a warning message, is given. :smiley:
