[solved] networkboot fails "bcm43xx_microcode4.fw"
« on: November 12, 2007, 08:44:57 pm »
Hi all

while booting my laptop (MD) via network i get the following error:

Error: Microcode "bcm43xx_microcode4.fw" not available or load failed.

this just after the MD monitoring service mdadm had been startet.

this are the last entries of syslog on the core:
Nov 12 20:12:01 dcerouter /USR/SBIN/CRON[20925]: (root) CMD (/usr/pluto/bin/DiskSpaceMonitor.sh)

Nov 12 20:24:01 dcerouter /USR/SBIN/CRON[30620]: (root) CMD (/usr/pluto/bin/DiskSpaceMonitor.sh)


i asume this is the driver for my networkcard (bcm4306).

any ideas or tips where to start?

thanks
chris

that wireless network card is a bitch to get going. if you go to the Ubuntu forums they have a fix which I assume will work for linuxmce.
