Sorry, don't know anything about the Atheros ethernet driver.
I guess you should open a new thread for that and hopefully someone will jump in.

( but if you really want the latest kernel, it should be here -- for the i686 arch:

I tried yum localinstall but thats when I got those errors I mentioned earlier

Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora. Please verify its path and try again


Btw, one pleasant development was that there is in fact an ethernet port on the netbook.
( I use a HP Mini 110 Series 110-3730TU Netbook )

I tried to connect to internet using the broadband modem, but it had some troubles and after digging up the forum I found out that there is something called
" ifplugd-0.28.tar "

When I tried installing that I got this error:

"c++ cannot create executables"

My best guess was that this was because there was no C++ to compile this.

So I tried installing gcc using
"gcc-4.6.2.tar"

and then finally I got this error

"no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH"

Maybe I should start a new thread for all this? Now Im feeling like Im on a wild goose chase


Somehow I get the feeling that all this is not really as bad as it sounds to me and someone here with loads of experience can show me the way out. Thanks for all the help.

Re: broadcom driver fedora 16 ?

The message means that yum is attempting to connect to the online repos, but it can't. Disable the online repos and try the the yum localinstall command again like this...
Code:
su
yum localinstall --disablerepo=* --nogpgcheck broadcom-wl-5.100.82.112-1.fc16.noarch kmod-wl-3.1.0-7.fc16.i686-5.100.82.112-1.fc16.i686 kmod-wl-5.100.82.112-1.fc16.i686
If that yum command completes successfully, then reboot and check the NetworkManager panel applet icon for available wireless networks. Try to connect. Even if it connects to a wireless network, you still may have to deal with the issue of DNS resolution before it will find an Internet web site (more on that below).

P.S.: You never established anywhere in this thread that your wireless card is supported by the Broadcom 802.11 STA Linux driver (broadcom-wl). I hope you confirmed that first.

P.P.S.: I would forget about the other stuff you mentioned in your last thread. Your Broadcom wired NIC almost certainly will work with one of Fedora's built-in drivers. Its problem most likely is DNS resolution which is easy to address. Here is a post with the steps to try for that issue.

You probably will have to do those steps to connect to Internet pages by wired or wireless. I do anyway.

Re: broadcom driver fedora 16 ?

Thank you so much.
I followed the steps using rpm and they worked perfectly. Finally, I can get Fedora on an HP mini.
