Description

Name= B43-fwcutter

Homepage= http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43/

This should be included in the repository because broadcom sta package does not work for specific wireless cards. This b43 driver is opensource. I've seen a few people looking for this driver in the forums and there have been build instructions posted in the forums for it. It's certainly more user friendly to have a package so I thought I would key in this request.

While this is open it seems to need the version 5.100.138 version of broadcoms proprietary driver. Other distro's use an installer.
