How do I get wifi to work on my powerbook g4 with xfce debian? I have tried sudo apt-get install bcm43xx-fwcutter but it comes up with E: Unable to locate package bcm43xx-fwcutter. What do I do?

The package name is b43-fwcutter, as you can see searching with apt-cache search --names-only fwcutter –  enzotib Dec 28 '11 at 18:29
@enzotib It can't locate that either. –  gadgetmo Dec 29 '11 at 9:25
It is in contrib archive, have you put it in your /etc/apt/sources.list? –  enzotib Dec 29 '11 at 9:50

In that file, add the word contrib, after the word main that should already be there. –  enzotib Dec 29 '11 at 13:49
