    Fedora 11 preview. WiFi driver for BCM4322

    Hi,

    I have Dell Studio 17 x86-64 arch. I install Fedora 11 preview. I try to compile 64 bit driver that I download from http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php. Please find result of compilation below. Googling around I found patch for hybrid-portsrc-x86_64-v5_10_73_9.tar.gz

    notes:
    Next two things were verified before posting - existing F10 thread and patch for the previous driver.

    ....broadcom-sta-5.10.79.10-linux-2.6.29.patch

    I've encountered the same problem with my Dell Studio 1537 laptop. Upon trying to install the wireless driver downloaded from Broadcom's website - hybrid-portsrc-x86_64-v5_10_91_9.tar.gz - I see pretty much the same error messages:

    I'm in the process of trying to resolve this by googling it, since I'm a linux newb, but no luck so far. Any help would be very appreciated.

    Kernel driver in use: tg3
    Kernel modules: tg3
    Looks like the wireless card is recognized, right? Also, looks like I don't have a kernel driver & module loaded for it. Ok, I guess now I have to learn how to load the needed kernel driver - b43 that is. Wish me luck.

    EDIT:

    I've finally succeeded in making my wireless work. Hooray! Don't know if /lib/firmware/b43 is still needed, but will keep it anyway =) What I did is blacklist b43 in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf, add the fusion non-free repository (googled this), and then yum install broadcom-wl, then rebooted and it worked.

    It took me only 1 full day =) Is everything else as easy? Lolz
