And obviously, pick your own paths for your own downloads.  mkdir ~/Files/firmware/i915 cd ~/Files/firmware/i915 nano -w ./dw11 https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git/tree/i915/skl_dmc_ver1_27.bin https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git/tree/i915/kbl_dmc_ver1_04.bin https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git/tree/i915/cnl_dmc_ver1_07.bin https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git/tree/i915/glk_dmc_ver1_04.bin https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git/tree/i915/kbl_guc_ver9_39.bin https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git/tree/i915/bxt_guc_ver9_29.bin https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git/tree/i915/skl_guc_ver9_33.bin https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git/tree/i915/kbl_huc_ver02_00_1810.bin https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git/tree/i915/bxt_huc_ver01_07_1398.bin https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git/tree/i915/skl_huc_ver01_07_1398.bin Then …
