Post subject:  blag 119k and openfwwf driver for broadcom cards

F12 installed by default the openfwwf driver and firmwares for broadcom wifi cards (See on their site the ones running with it: http://www.ing.unibs.it/openfwwf/); but f12 uses a non-free kernel; So the firmware is installed in /lib/firmware/b43/ and the linux-libre doesn't load it. You have to create a new file: /lib/firmware/b43-open/ and copy the firmwares in it.
You can do as this:
Code:
#mkdir /lib/firmware/b43-open/

Then:
Code:
#cp /lib/firmware/b43/*.fw /lib/firmware/b43-open/


And:
Code:
#rmmod b43

then
Code:
modprobe b43

And it'd work

We have to modify openfwwf package for it to install the firmwares in /lib/firmware/b43-open/ and not in the b43 file.
