BCM4312 on a old Acer AO751h

Hello Community,

I installed Devuan on a old Acer Notebook AO751h which has a comes with a old Broadcom module (BCM4312)

During startup I get the following error message.


[   19.402445] b43-phy0 ERROR: Firmware file "b43/ucode15.fw" not found
[   19.402660] b43-phy0 ERROR: Firmware file "b43-open/ucode15.fw" not found
[   19.402897] b43-phy0 ERROR: You must go to http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Dri … cefirmware and download the correct firmware for this driver version. Please carefully read all instructions on this website.

How do I please get it work ?

Do I need enable a special repository like on Debian by adding some special lines to my

sources.list

or do I need to download some kind of archive ?

Thanks and regards

Hi.

I think you should take a look at this page:

https://wiki.debian.org/wl

I think you will find a solution there.

Hope this helps.
