Could you try, as root, something like (use the right package and
name below):

  echo -n $(guix build b43-firmware-whatever)/lib/firmware \
     > /sys/module/firmware_class/parameters/path
  insmod b43-module-whatever-its-called
  dmesg | tail

… and report back?

These are the three options I tested:

echo -n $(guix build b43-firmware-whatever)/lib/firmware      >
echo -n $(guix build b43-open)/lib/firmware      >
echo -n $(guix build b43-tools)/lib/firmware      >
echo -n $(guix build openfwwf)/lib/firmware      >
echo -n $(guix build openfwwf-firmware)/lib/firmware      >

The results for all those in the order of:

guix build: error: openfwwf-firmware: unknown package

That’s because “openfwwf-firmware” is not the right package name, or is
not found.  Perhaps you need to adjust GUIX_PACKAGE_PATH so that the
recipe for “openfwwf-firmware” is found?

I suppose the path can be found with:
ls /gnu/store/*/ucode5.fw

  sudo bash
  export GUIX_PACKAGE_PATH=/path/to/recipes
  echo -n $(guix build openfwwf-firmware)/lib/firmware > \

So the path would be:
export GUIX_PACKAGE_PATH=/openfwwf-firmware-5.2

Is that correct?
