    Default Cannot see wireless BCM43228 on laptop running SUSE 11.3

    I have been trying to install the necessary Broadcom drivers needed to see this interface.

    My uname -a returns

    Linux linux-0kp0 3.0.76-0.11-default #1 SMP Fri Jun 14 08:21:43 UTC 2013 (ccab990) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    rm -qa |grep kernel returns


    I am pointing to the following repositories

    zypper lr -d
    # | Alias | Name | Enabled | Refresh | Priority | Type | URI | Service
    1 | ATI-Driver-SLE11-SP3 | ATI-Driver-SLE11-SP3 | Yes | Yes | 99 | rpm-md | |
    2 | SUSE-Linux-Enterprise-Desktop-11-SP3 11.3.3-1.95 | SUSE-Linux-Enterprise-Desktop-11-SP3 11.3.3-1.95 | Yes | No | 99 | yast2 | cd:///?devices=/dev/sr0 |
    3 | nVidia-Driver-SLE11-SP3 | nVidia-Driver-SLE11-SP3 | Yes | Yes | 99 | rpm-md | |
    4 | packman-essentials | Packman Essentials repository (openSUSE_11.3) | Yes | Yes | 99 | rpm-md | |

    When I attempt to install broadcom-wl, I receive the following dependency error.

    zypper in broadcom-wl

    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    Resolving package dependencies...

    Problem: nothing provides kernel(xen:kernel) = 036c1ddeb629ddd6 needed by broadcom-wl-kmp-xen-
    Solution 1: do not install broadcom-wl-
    Solution 2: break broadcom-wl-kmp-xen- by ignoring some of its dependencies

    Choose from above solutions by number or cancel [1/2/c] (c):

    Am I pointing to the wrong repository or possibly missing something from my system?
    Could someone please help point me in the right directions. I read over several theads to get this far and am now at a bit of a loss.
    I am somewhat new to Linux but not to other types of unix.

    Thanks in adavance.

    What I see from your repos list is that you have SLED 11 SP 3. These are the openSUSE forums. Thus you are at the wrong place here. Please go to (same username and password as here, but you better firrst remove the openSUSE repos before you report there because you can not mix them.
