Does any one know why broadcom-sta was remove from Testing and Unstable ?
From the bug report:
"This driver has been orphaned and does not build against kernel
version 2.6.31. The hardware it supports should now be handled by the
in-tree b43 driver."
I guess that I was looking for such a Bug Report.
But this aasertion is partially false as a version of broadcom-sta
that compiled against kernel 2.6.31 is privided by broadcom:
It seems that b43 is supposed to do everything that broadcom-sta did.
(To use b43, you may need to install b43-fwcutter from contrib, and let
it download firmware for your card. I have to, at least.)
I will give it a try as soon as I have time.
Hope it helps.
It helps, thanks a lot,
