When I try to install broadcom-sta I get an errormessage. The problem is that the file in the ebuild does not exist anymore on the server of broadcom. They have an new driver named: http://www.broadcom.com/docs/linux_sta/hybrid-portsrc_x86_64-v5_100_82_38.tar.gz

I think the ebuild needs to be updated. Can anyone help me with this?
I will show some config stuff here:
Code:

elmarotter@gentoo-arthurdent /etc/init.d $ sudo lspci |grep Broadcom
02:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4328 802.11a/b/g/n (rev 03)


Code:


elmarotter@gentoo-arthurdent /etc/init.d $ sudo emerge -av broadcom-sta

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Hi,

you should unmask the most current version instead. On the other side, this file has fetch-restrictions. You need to pick it by yourself and put it to /usr/portage/distfiles.
