Description avx 2012-01-04 15:28:16 UTC
Support for some wireless chips from Broadcom - most notably, imho, 4331 (found in many i.e. Macbooks) - is coming with Linux 3.2.

b43-fwcutter already got the needed bump, but the portage treee is currently lacking the 5.* firmwares.

Reproducible: Always

Comment 3 avx 2012-04-04 13:45:19 UTC
Anything to complain, or why isn't this in portage as of yet?

@avx: Are you willing to maintain it, if I proxy your commits?

So @mobileherd / other herds are no longer interested? As long as it's only bumping ebuilds, I might be able to do it, if it goes way deeper, I don't know. I'll read up on it and let you know.
