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.

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.)


See:

Hope it helps.

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:

I will give it a try as soon as I have time.

It seems not to work with my Broadcom BCM4322 and kernel 2.6.31 .
May be it will get better with kernel 2.6.32 .

 It seems not to work with my Broadcom BCM4322 and kernel 2.6.31 .

It works well for many people under various kernel versions, so you may
want to insist a bit, or at least post a description of the way it
doesn't work (dmesg output would be a good start, along with
a description of what you've done).

Ok. my kernel is a amd64 kernel, my box being an aluminium MacBook,
and I running Lenny tainted with some Squeeze.

In /var/log/syslog, I got when I do `modprb b43'

Oct 19 22:54:48 XXX kernel: b43-phy2: Broadcom 4322 WLAN found (core revision 
16)
Oct 19 22:54:48 XXX kernel: b43-phy2 ERROR: FOUND UNSUPPORTED PHY (Analog 8, 
Type 4, Revision 4)
Oct 19 22:54:48 XXX kernel: b43: probe of ssb0:0 failed with error -95
Oct 19 22:54:48 XXX kernel: Broadcom 43xx driver loaded [ Features: P, 
Firmware-ID: FW13 ]

Thanks in advance,
Jerome

Apparently this is too-new and not yet supported indeed.  Sorry for
getting your hopes up.  You may want to ask around on
gmane.linux.kernel.wireless.general to see if there's any progress on
getting suport for that card.

Or on bcm43xx-dev.
