Thanks damo. I had to deal with this on my Jessie netinstall. It was very confusing and frustrating. This is very good to see. Hopefully it shows up on duckduckgo next time I have to do this.

Re: HowTo: Do a netinstall with a Broadcom b43xx wireless card

Nice work, damo.  You gave me an idea.  I should have broken down my Windows 7 Pro on Virtual Box how-to in separate posts.  Thing is, could I have done so quickly enough before someone responded?  Probably not, so not such a great idea after all.

Re: HowTo: Do a netinstall with a Broadcom b43xx wireless card

Will the BunsenLabs ISO be unable to work OOTB with b43 chipsets then?

Obviously Waldorf had that functionality OOTB. Were the drivers pre-loaded in the ISO or was Wheezy just compatable with b43 and in Jessie they scrapped that?

I ask because I just ran across it in my latest (alpha2) install.

Re: HowTo: Do a netinstall with a Broadcom b43xx wireless card

I understand that the iso will include the non-free-firmware - which is where the broadcom drivers are from. Non-free wasn't included in the netinstall method, to keep it as close to pure Debian as possible while testing.

The hope is to have BL to work OOTB as much as possible, like Crunchbang.

(I certainly hope it works with b43, because that is what I have!)
