b43 tigon firmware missing

Post by oleg » 03 Feb 2015, 18:06

For a Broadcom Gigabit Ethernet BCM57765 controller, a b43 tigon firmware needed to make it functional. Even with b43-fwcutter pkg included in SysRescueCD, its not enough. Workaround is to do the firmware extraction on a remote system, and copy firmware via USB stick to sysrescuecd, then rmmod and modprobe tg3.
