Default SOLVED: kernel versus broadcom wlan

The installation runs finally into this error:

What can I do, to bypass this error during installation on the debian
sid system?



Have you ever built kernels using kernel-package before? Have you ever
see that error? What happens if you try to build the kernel
with kernel-package without the b43 patch, or using the vanilla kernel
building tools with the b43 patch? Florian's suggestion about
switching to another initrd creator is also worth trying.


Right after the failed installation have I tried an update with
uptitude. The update of several packages, a new linux-image-2.6.24 among
them did not succeed, since the debian linux kernel came with the same
weird "yaird" errors with these "unrecognised devices".
For to reduce possible conflicts did I uninstall all modules, which
"rmmod" could remove.


And after that action could I install the b43 patched Custom kernel.
And the wireless interface is meanwhile up and running.

This was the first self PATCHED kernel, which I ever had built
but it was not the first Custom kernel on this machine.
This weird yaird error had I never seen before.
But when searching, have I seen, that there are UNRESOLVED bugreports
with it.


Maybe the removing of modules and installing the new kernel with a
different kernel version running during install could be a solution for
them.


If you did not get my former post, about the way, how my problem got
solved now,

(and with thanks to all), then I can repost it again.

I want these details to be in the Debian users list, that others, which
have the same problem, could profit from my trials when they search the web.
