Hi, I'm probably missing something obvious, but when going from 3.3 to 3.4 the b43 driver throws up an error, saying it can't find the firmware - but it really _is_ there. Here's the error: b43-phy0 ERROR: Firmware file "b43/ucode16_mimo.fw" not found b43-phy0 ERROR: Firmware file "b43-open/ucode16_mimo.fw" not found b43-phy0 ERROR: You must go to http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/b43#devicefirmware and download the correct firmware for this driver version. Please carefully read all instructions on this website. Here's the firmware it claims doesn't exist: $ sha1sum /lib/firmware/b43/ucode16_mimo.fw 825a4bc63e3a96bb20fd8551add947435d47ad46 /lib/firmware/b43/ucode16_mimo.fw This is from Debian's firmware-b43-installer package, version 1:015-14. The network card in question: 02:00.0 Network controller : Broadcom Corporation BCM4322 802.11a/b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller [14e4:432b] (rev 01) The only obvious change is 6b6fa5868eec26bdc6a83543cebb8cf832a2645a by Larry Finger. I don't know if it matters, but b43 is statically compiled in the kernel. Am I missing something?
I do not know. I am building a system with b43 built in. Have you tried using b43 as a module?
