Bug#586441: b43-fwcutter does not extract firmware automatically after installation



Package: b43-fwcutter

Version: 1:013-2



Installed b43-fwcutter in Squeeze/PPC and it did not extract the required

firmware into /lib/firmware. I did it manually after downloading the

broadcom-wl-4.178.10.4.tar.bz2 tarball.



export FIRMWARE_INSTALL_DIR="/lib/firmware"

wget http://downloads.openwrt.org/sources/broadcom-wl-4.178.10.4.tar.bz2

tar xjf broadcom-wl-4.178.10.4.tar.bz2

cd broadcom-wl-4.178.10.4/linux

sudo b43-fwcutter -w "$FIRMWARE_INSTALL_DIR" wl_apsta.o



Then a reboot and my Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4306

802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 03) worked as it should be. The

b43-fwcutter program should do this automatically after installation. In

Debian Lenny/PPC it works fine.
