[opensuse-kernel] [PATCH V2] b43: Change firmware missing message to refer to openSUSE script
  • From: Larry Finger <Larry.Finger@xxxxxxxxxxxx>
  • Date: Thu, 06 May 2010 13:39:47 -0500
  • Message-id: <4be30cf3.6eujG3UAJIps7Hv9%Larry.Finger@xxxxxxxxxxxx>
The error message output by b43 contains instructions for obtaining
firmware; however, this naturally does not take account of the script
/usr/sbin/install_bcm43xx_firmware. Modify the messages to suggest use
of the script.

Signed-off-by: Larry Finger <Larry.Finger@xxxxxxxxxxxx>

V2 - Fix a typo, and reference a wiki page rather than the forum.

This patch could be used for 2.6.31 kernels in openSUSE 11.2 or
2.6.34 kernels in 11.3.
