non inbox drivers for network devices in VyOS
Closed, ResolvedPublic

I saw this post on forum

Some problems with driver updating (eg mellanox version comes with vyos is very, very old and have no qinq support), but not critical.

And just wondering, if exists way to maintain HW vendor driver packages(e.g. those which available on vendor web) somehow and which difficulties can be? (I see licensing limitations, and no prebuilt drivers for Debian, etc)

Could we direct driver updates through package distribution to be handled by the OS distro?

So that the current port on Debian Squeeze would point back to the Debian Squeeze driver repos and any future ports to a different Linux could just be repointed in the back-end to a different repo.

This is again about decision to drop 'install system' mode.

Will be implemented via additional repositories and packages
