ROME/rolling special instructions to upgrade sof-firmware-2024.03-1


  • OpenMandriva Lx version:

ROME 24.04

  • Desktop environment (KDE, LXQT…):


  • Description of the issue (screenshots if relevant):

New package sof-firmware-2024.03-1 needs special instructions to install.

  • Relevant informations (hardware involved, software version, logs or output…):

Do this:

$ sudo dnf clean all
$ sudo dnf rm sof-firmware
$ sudo dnf in sof-bin

This will install two packages sof-bin and sof-firmware. That is the desired result.

Then one may upgrade their ROME/rolling system with:

$ sudo dnf dsync
$ sudo dnf dsync --allowerasing

Do not be fooled into thinking that --allowerasing will not remove packages you may want to keep. Pay attention, ask questions if needed.

Note: ROME uses rolling repositories. ROME=rolling
