    Default (iMac) can't install the wifi

    hi,

    I would like to install suse on an iMac in an external drive, so I downloaded a liveCD and ran it, but I can't connect to the network, by wifi.
    the wifi hardware is a broadcom BCM43xx, and its driver is normally included in the kernel of suse.

    can you tell me the steps to install the network?

    thank you,

    olivier.

    As you do not say which BCM43xx you have, this advice cannot be
    definitive, but it is likely that you need the firmware. Please read
    stickie #3 in this forum. It tells you how to install firmware when
    you do not have network access when running Linux. Alternatively, you
    could copy the files from /lib/firmware/b43 on some other Linux with a
    Broadcom device.
