I installed Fedora 12 alpha, and install broadcom-wl using yum,
it appeared that:
Error: Missing Dependency: kernel-uname-r = 2.6.31-33.fc12.x86_64 is needed by package kmod-wl-2.6.31-33.fc12.x86_64-184.108.40.206.3-3.fc12.x86_64 (rpmfusion-nonfree-rawhide)
what shoule I do, and how to get the package.

Try b43-openfwwf :
yum check-update && yum install b43-openfwwf
You reboot the machine and then with luck; udev should automatically load the firmware and the built in Linux driver should kick in allowing you to create a connection.
If it works you could add to the wiki entry here :
Well supported. Needs b43-openfwwf installed.
You can find out which broadcom chip you have by using :
in a console and looking through the output.
According to this :
b43-openfwwf pretty much obsoletes the proprietary driver that uses broadcom-wl so you should use it.
It says on the wiki page that b43-openfwwf needs testing, so I find it strange that it's been forgotten to be added to the alpha. Maybe you would like to report that the b43-openfwwf firmware was missing from the alpha, on the bugzilla (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/)?

it looks like the static kmod build hasn't been updated for a while for some reason. you could try installing akmod-wl instead, that may do the trick.
