Hi,

I've been struggling with tripple booting my macbookpro8,3 with OSX, Win7 and Gentoo.
I compiled kernel 3.6.6 without luck on the wireless part.

I've extracted the firmware so this is where I'm at.

Code:
mbp17 ~ # dmesg | grep b43
[    3.667182] b43-phy0: Broadcom 4331 WLAN found (core revision 29)
[    3.667610] b43-phy0 ERROR: FOUND UNSUPPORTED PHY (Analog 9, Type 7, Revision 1)
[    3.667640] b43: probe of bcma0:0 failed with error -95




Thanks
Sami

@DONAHUE: It would've helped if you checked whether brcmsmac supports saami's wifi card before you posted. Hint: It doesn't.
