The packages mentioned above are available from Packman



but only for openSUSE 11.0.

Could you please activate them for 11.1 and the upcoming 11.2?

For users without internet access, downloading and installing the RPMs has 
always been the easier way (in that case it does not make any difference, 
that the packages are "officialy" only for 11.0) and although users with 
internet access could also run 

"su -c  /usr/sbin/install_bcm43xx_firmware" 


"sudo /usr/bin/install_bcm43xx_firmware"

(as long as b43-fwcutter is installed), for some "newbies" it might be easier 
to just install them via YaST, especially as any good tutorial dealing with 
online repositories mentions Packman as a "must have" for openSUSE.
