• How to install b43-firmware


    Hello. For a few weeks I’m trying to install my Wireless-Card. In a Arch Forum they said, I have to to install b43-fimware.
    But Pacman XG can’t find b43-firmware. With sudo pacman -S b43-firmware I had also no success. In the Arch Forum I got a link, but with that link I can find a lot of informations, the source code and the dependences but except package „[i:2ub25r20]pkg.tar.gz[/i:2ub25r20]" of b43-firmware. I have already downloaded the source code but I can not find the package!
    Now in the Arch they Forum don’t want to help me and they said, I have to go to an Antergos Forum (I did that). Now the administrators have closed the thread.

  • Hi,

    Sorry you had to go through all of that. To resolve your issue, run the following commands:

    sudo pacman -Syu  
    sudo pacman -S yaourt  
    yaourt -S b43-firmware --noconfirm
    

    Don’t forget to reboot your system afterwards

    Cheers!

  • Thank you. I will do it the next day.

  • Sorry, but I have no experience with package building and I don’t know, what I have to edit in this the file.

  • nothing
    do not edit

  • Please run the command EXACTLY as I have provided. You will not be asked to edit any files.

    Cheers!

  • OK, wher I have to run the command „EXECTLY".
    Do you mean possibly:

    yaourt -S b43-firmware exextly
    

    ?

  • Hi,

    1. Open a terminal
    2. Run the following command:

    yaourt -S b43-firmware --noconfirm
    

    That should result in the firmware being installed successfully. Let me know

  • OK. I did it with --noconfirm. Thank you. It’s running.

  • This should be on Wiki. Not on the forum. There is a bug on github with this situation too.
