I've been getting an issue since upgrading to 2.6.39 in Natty from the Kernel-PPA repository.

When I do a sudo update-initramfs -u I get the following error message.

update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-2.6.39-0-generic-pae
W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl8105e-1.fw for module r8169

I did notice that firmware wasn't in the allocated directory. Does anyone know where to get the firmware files for this.
