I would like to test the b43 driver for a BCM4322. I tried with 220.127.116.11
and 2.6.39-rc2 but I'm stuck with a firmware error in dmesg :
[ 75.922582] b43-phy0 ERROR: Firmware file "b43/ucode16_mimo.fw" not found
[ 75.922587] b43-phy0 ERROR: Firmware file "b43-open/ucode16_mimo.fw"
[ 75.922590] b43-phy0 ERROR: You must go to
download the correct firmware for this driver version. Please carefully
read all instructions on this website.
I have b43-fwcutter v13.
# b43-fwcutter -w /lib/firmware/ broadcom-wl-18.104.22.168/linux/wl_apsta.o
This file is recognised as:
ID : FW15
filename : wl_apsta.o
version : 478.104
MD5 : bb8537e3204a1ea5903fe3e66b5e2763
Did I miss something ? I promise I read carefully.
Sorry, I wrote this email in several times. I finally did a symlink in
/lib/firmware/b43 : # sudo ln -s ucode16.fw ucode16_mimo.fw
And it worked like this.
