Broadcom 43xx driver install in Arch Linux

This is a vintage post to remind me how to install b43 drivers on Arch Linux for my "shiny" Belkin PCMCIA card (dated 2002…).

Check dmesg. You should see something like:

Broadcom 43xx driver loaded [ Features: PMNLS ]

and lsmod | grep b43:

b43 330774 0 bcma 19281 1 b43 mac80211 341044 1 b43 cfg80211 147429 2 b43,mac80211 ssb 42167 2 b43,b44 pcmcia 31182 2 b43,ssb mmc\core 72742 2 b43,ssb

Finally, try to connect:

$> pacman -S wifi-select
$> wifi-select
