Re: Adding firmware to initramfs

-----Original Message-----For future management, you may be better off using a .bbappend for the image instead of adding this to your local.conf. If you have your own layer in which you have your own recipes, placing a .bbappend for the image in this layer makes it easy to keep track of everything you changed to customize the image. If you need to start a new build setup from scratch (new developer starts working on the project, hard drive crashes, etc.) you can get a copy of your layer and have all your image customizations ready.
Specifically for your case, adding the file recipes-core/images/core-image-minimal-initramfs.bbappend to your layer with the contents:
PACKAGE_INSTALL += "linux-firmware"
should get you the same results but be easier to maintain.
minimal-initramfs image to select the final rootfs that gets loaded.
