Thread: Error installing Hybrid WL (802.11)

    Default Error installing Hybrid WL (802.11)

    Hi, I'm new in SuSE Community, and first of all I want to say hello all of you.

    Now, my lil' problem...

    I downloaded the Hybrid WL v35 x64 driver for my Broadcom, but when I try to compile it, this is what I receive:

    Code:
    me@linux-35bi:~/Downloads/hybrid_wl> make
    KBUILD_NOPEDANTIC=1 make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd`
    make: *** /lib/modules/3.11.10-7-desktop/build: No such file or directory.  Stop.
    make: *** [all] Error 2
    I`ve searched a lot, but I didn't found anything.
    I'll be glad to know how to solve this, because I had this problem in past and I`m curious, but for now I really need to connect at a Wireless Network and I can't.

    Kindly regards,
    devna

    Hi
    Why not download and install the broadcom-wl and
    broadcom-wl-kmp-*-desktop rpms from packman?
    http://packman.links2linux.org/package/broadcom-wl

    Hi
    You need the broadcom-wl and the kmp for your system (desktop) then use
    zypper to install both by adding cd'ing to the directory where they are
    located and then using;
    Code:
    zypper in <pkg_1> <pkg_2>
    Where <pkg_n> are the respective names....(tab completion should work
    here)

    I just installed the broadcom-wl-kmp-desktop-6.30.223.141_k3.11.10_7-2.7.x86_64.rpm with success, but still wireless does not work. (for my SuSE 13.1)

    Hi
    Ok, install the package rfkill and check (you need to be root user)

    Code:
    rfkill list
    Did you also install the package broadcom-wl (as this blacklists other
    modules).

    Hi

    This is the result:
    Code:
    linux-35bi:/home/me # rfkill list
    0: acer-wireless: Wireless LAN
        Soft blocked: no
        Hard blocked: no
    And yes, I think I've installed the broadcom-wl package as I posted above. If I do it wrong, please correct me

    Thanks for answer.

    Code:

    Doesn't the Broadcom chip require the b43-firmware from Packman followed by a reboot?

    Only if you use b43. The subject of this thread refers to wl.
