Subject: [gentoo-dev] net-misc/bcm4400 going away

1 Hi,
3 net-misc/bcm4400 is a kernel driver built as an external package through
4 portage. The codebase which this package use has been discontinued
5 upstream. The upstream replacement (which is not in Portage directly) is
6 simply a copy of the in-kernel b44 driver code.
8 For this reason we are suggesting everyone migrates to the b44 in-kernel
9 driver (I guess net-misc/bcm4400 doesn't really have any users anyway...).
11 bcm4400 will be removed in about 28 days. Bug #145525
