YasT2 error when setting up WI-FI

Something interesting here

modprobe does a Fatal error : module wl not found in directory /lib/modules/…

And here you should post the complete Output.

Also with:

uname -a

I should have the regular packman repository for tumbleweed:

And here are the broadcom packages installed:

So here is my current package:

4.7.0-208.g89a2ada-default #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Jul 25 08:42:47 UTC 2016 (89a2ada) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I ll try rm broadcom package and re-install it

Your broadcom-wl is for Kernel 4.6, you are running Kernel 4.7.

Packman has to patch Broadcom-wl for kernel 4.7 as I have done in my Repo.
https://build.opensuse.org/package/show/home:Sauerland/broadcom-wl
But I do not build any Package for Tumbleweed.

So download the src.rpm and rebuild it.
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/Sauerland/Kernel_stable_standard/src/broadcom-wl-6.30.223.271-28.5.src.rpm

Maybe it is working…

PS:
Videolan- and Packman-Repo at same time?
You know what you are doing?

And why this Repo:

4 | http-download.opensuse.org-fb7ec172 | home:X0F:HSF:Kernel                      | Yes     | (r ) Yes  | Yes     |   99     | http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/X0F:/HSF:/Kernel/standard/

And broadcom-wl from http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/X0F:/HSF:/Kernel/standard/ links to my Package.
https://build.opensuse.org/package/show/home:X0F:HSF:Kernel/broadcom-wl

And is set to unresolvable.

It’s strange because on pkgs.org:

broadcom-wl-6.30.223.248-9.6.x86_64.rpm

  • Distribution: openSUSE Factory
  • Repository: Packman all

Changelog 2016-07-27 - olaf@aepfle.de - Add broadcom-wl-4.7.patch

And what does that help?
That driver is in Factory, not in Tumbleweed.
That is different.

OK, so I’ve just been looking for rpmbuild and the way it worked. I intended a

 rpmbuild --rebuild --nosignature broadcom-wl-6.30.223.271-28.5.src.rpm 

==> Warning Header, Signature , key … : Nokey
==> error: line 40 Dependency tokens must begin with alpha-numeric…

But when I open the rpm.src with Vim, the line 40 starts with " _ Dropped " …

Then I intended:

 rpm -Uvh --nosignature *broadcom-wl-6.30.223.271-28.5.src.rpm.rpm *

And it did Updating /Installing
1: broadcom-wl-6.30.223.271-28.5 ########### 100%

What should I be doing next ?

If you rebuild broadcom-wl from the src.rpm, you get 2 new rpms:
broadcom-wl and broadcom-wl-kmp-xxxxx depending on your installed Kernel (default,desktop,pae or so on).

These Packages will be build and saved in /usr/src/packages/RPMS/x64_64 or i586.
You have to install this 2 packages.
See the last lines of rpmbuild --rebuild xxxxxx:

I personally have changed the Directories to build Packages to my /home…

I installed the rpm, reboot the computer … and now even the wired ethernet connexion doesn’t work, neither with NM nor wicked …

It’s better if you can demonstrate this situation with commands and output, otherwise we’re left to guess the details. You may even need to examine the boot log for errors relating to networking.

  1. Network drivers associated with hardware…
/sbin/lspci -nnk |grep '\02' -A3
  1. Network device nodes active…
/sbin/ifconfig
  1. Network device nodes (inactive and active)…
/sbin/ifconfig -a
  1. IP addresses configured (if any)…
ip address
ip route

You can examine the journal when you first connect via ethernet with something like

sudo journalctl -fu NetworkManager
