b43 in Fedora 7



I've been trying to use the broadcom b43 driver in Fedora 7 with 2.6.22.9-91.fc7, but I have no luck.

I've extracted the 4.80.53.0 with b43-fwcutter in /lib/firmware directory. Loaded the b43 driver and even registered the pci id of my card using the following (as suggested in the bcm43xx mailing list)

B43_PCI_ID=`/sbin/lspci -n | awk '$2 ~ "^0280" && $3 ~ "^14e4:43" { print $3 }' | sed -e 's/:/ /'`
echo "$B43_PCI_ID" > /sys/bus/pci/drivers/b43-pci-bridge/new_id

(actually the suggestion was for the bcm43xx driver and the path was '/sys/bus/pci/drivers/bcm43xx/new_id' )

the only thing I get in dmesg is this
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:02:03.0[A] -> Link [LNKB] -> GSI 7 (level, low) -> IRQ 7
ssb: Sonics Silicon Backplane found on PCI device 0000:02:03.0

NetworkManager doesn't report a wireless network, same with iwconfig and of course 'ifconfig wlan0 up', reports "wlan0: unknown interface: No such device".

I have these aliases in my modprobe
alias pci:v000014E4d0x00004324sv*sd*bc*sc*i* b43
alias wlan0 b43

which corresponds to my cards id.

Why does it have to be so complicated ?

regards,
Ioannis
