Broadcom BCM4312 Failed firmware-b43-installer


Hello,All.
Installed LM10 on HP Mini 1000 with Broadcom bcm4312 internal wireless card, when trying to install driver get following message or a variation thereof:

Setting up firmware-b43-installer (4.150.10.5-4) ...
Not supported low-power chip with PCI id 14e4:4315!
Aborting.
dpkg: error processing firmware-b43-installer (--configure):
subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
firmware-b43-installer
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

I read previous forum entries and found that I did the same thing as most in that I tried to install the B43 driver vs the STA. Have since downloaded Broadcom STA but still having issue, how do I find the B43 driver to delete and repair, says not installed so is the update itself likely causing a problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

According to the output you got you have the low-power variant of that chip.
You have to install the according package, firmware-b43-lpphy-installer.
