Thread: b44 module in openSuSe 11.4 freezes laptop

    Default b44 module in openSuSe 11.4 freezes laptop

    ugh! 11.4 has been a bit of a pain. The broadcom driver, b44, for the
    Broadcom 44xx/47xx, freezes my system. I cannot be the only victim of this faulty driver.

    The driver is not for the WLAN, but rather for 10/100 ethernet on a Dell Insprion 1720 laptop.

    Is there a workaround, or fix, for this issue?

    Drivers can be a pain, but I've never heard of an old-school ethernet card on a Dell not working. Not since 2001, at least. Anyway - try posting to Hardware the driver guys may know more.

    Thank you for the reply, I posted the same inquiry to the laptop section of these forums and there is some action on that post.

    In addition, I have posted a bug on the problem, as well, # 686492.
