You can get it there:


It has already been submitted to the maintainer of linux-firmware.


The problem persists, I have on disk:

# ls /lib/firmware/rtl_nic/
rtl8105e-1.fw rtl8168d-1.fw rtl8168d-2.fw rtl8168e-1.fw

Excuse me. I don't understand what your question is. Do you mean you cannot
build the kernel without the firmware? Or, you just don't know where to download
the firmware? Or, your NIC work abnormally after loading the firmware?

From your information, I see the firmware in the correct path
"/lib/firmeare/rtl_nic/", so it seems fine.

Nevermind, the problem was in the kernel (bug), not firmware. Sorry for the noise.
