FS#176 - Wifi: bcm43xx: kernel module missing

Package “linux-image-2.6.18-elive” does not contain the module bcm43xx for broadcom 43xx wifi cards.
The directory exists in the module path, but it is empty.

PrinceAMD, i have seen this also happen in my laptop, some module file does not exist!

Installing the debian etch kernel resolves the wifi issue, but causes others which is far from desirable.

Please try the next 1.6 development release that has a new kernel, there’s a new workaround for this module
