Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 241956
Broadcom 1390 WLAN using fwcutter not working in Fedora7
Last modified: 2008-06-16 21:20:21 EDT
Description of problem: Broadcom 1390 WLAN Mini-pci card (rev1) does not work in
Fedora7 using Bcm43xx-fwcutter. Fresh install of Fedora7, installed fw-cutter
packages and installed firmware that I used in FC6 installation (which worked).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always. Install fwcutter and firmware-no broadcom card recognition
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install fwcutter and firmware -no broadcom card recognition
Ok the problem seems to be fixed. Re-cut the firmware V 4.x and all is working
now. BUT it appears as though this patch:
failed yet again to make it upstream in recent kernels. This patch allows
broadcom 1390 devices to work at much better speeds. For reference you can look
at this bug: http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=213556
This message is a reminder that Fedora 7 is nearing the end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 7. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '7'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 7's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 7 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists.
Please read the Release Notes for the newest Fedora distribution to make sure it will meet your needs:
The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Fedora 7 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on June 13, 2008.
Fedora 7 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not
receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we
are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version
of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
