Bug#517032: b43-cutter cannot extract firmware
Firstly, thanks for your maintaining job.
I have this problem with firmware-b43-installer and I have solved by
compiling b43-fwcutter by myself. The message I get is as following:
Sorry, the input file is either wrong or not supported by b43-fwcutter.
This file has an unknown MD5sum cb8d70972b885b1f8883b943c0261a3c.
It is rare because same firmware runs with my compiled version of
fwcutter. Have you seen Vsevolod has the same architecture like me
(powerpc)?. I'm not sure but I think the problem is the compiling
process of b43-fwcutter.
I'll try to help you with this issue.
