Description Peter Lemenkov 2008-02-10 05:50:21 EST
Description of problem: 
According to firmware choosing guide (
http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43 ) users with recent kernel need
recent version of broadcom's blob, namely broadcom-wl- . But
version of b43-fwcutter shipped with Fedra doesn't recognises firmware among
binaries of the package above. Updating to 010 helps.

One more karma point and it will be pushed to stable ;)
