Hi everyone, I am new to Opensuse and linux in general. I have searched the forums here and other places and found only similar problems to my own…
I have Opensuse 11.3 KDE installed on Dell Studio 1510 with Broadcom 4322 WLAN card. I found enough out there to know (or think) I need broadcom-wl from packman, but I am not sure I have the correct broadcom-wl as there are several. I have broadcom-wl and broadcom-wl-kmp-default as when -wl was checked the -kmp-default installed automatically. Even if this is the right combo, under Yast’s hardware manager–>network card–>drivers it reads drivers=yes, active=no. Of course, I still have no wireless, but I can access through LAN. I think I removed all of the previous drivers including the cutter, but I am not sure how to check this.
I guess what I need to know is…
Is this the right driver?
Are all previous drivers uninstalled and how to check for that?
How do I activate the correct driver once I get it?
Also, why does the installation of the -wl series create another Opensuse option on my screen and how do I get rid of the extra?
You should also know that I am a bit more familiar with Ubuntu/Kubuntu and when I use some command line commands, they just don’t do anything…lpsci, for example, says command not found.
I’ve tried a good bit of stuff to fix this, all to no avail. Thank you all so much for operating this forum! I hope to hear from someone soon.
