Good evening. I would like to try and install Gentoo on my old Acer Aspire 5610Z, which it seems to have a Broadcom 4318 wireless card (according to Gentoo). ping does not work, and I know it needed the b43 drivers.
Gentoo gives me the following error when I type dmesg:
Code:
b43 ssb0:0: Direct firmware load for b43/ucode5.fw failed with error -2
b43 ssb0:0: Direct firmware load for b43/ucode5.fw failed with error -2
b43 ssb0:0: Direct firmware load for b43-open/ucode5.fw failed with error -2
b43 ssb0:0: Direct firmware load for b43-open/ucode5.fw failed with error -2
b43-phy0 ERROR: Firmware file "b43/ucode5.fw" not found
b43-phy0 ERROR: Firmware file "b43-open/ucode5.fw" not found
b43-phy0 ERROR: You must go to http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/b43#devicefirmware and download the correct firmware for this driver version. Please carefully read all instructions on this website.


How can I use my Wi-Fi within the minimal installation CD?

For wireless, you'd better go with sysresccd instead of minimal installation CD.
