Question bcm4312 not working under F11 with fresh install


Just tried new Fedora 11 yesterday, did a fresh install with ext3 /boot and ext4 file system, booting looks great, but wireless doesn't work...

I have tried using broadcom-wl, dnmouse script, dnmouse broadcom f11 rpm, fwcutter but not ndiswrapper

Code:
# rpm -qa | grep broadcom
broadcom-wl-5.10.79.10-2.fc11.noarch
Code:
# lspci -nn
02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g [14e4:4315] (rev 01)
Code:
# lspci -vvv | grep 4312
02:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01)
	Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company BCM4312 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller
ifconfig only shows eth0, lo and pan0 interfaces, and got nothing from iwconfig...

Code:
# iwconfig
lo        no wireless extensions.

eth0      no wireless extensions.

pan0      no wireless extensions.
even tried to blacklist b43 after installing broadcom-wl driver, but no luck

broadcom-wl works fine with Fedora 10 on my laptop, is it possibly because of the new ext4 file system?

Should I try ndiswrapper or install Fedora 10 again and do a preupgrade?
I also use fedora at work, I don't want to hate it just because of this trivial annoying thing...

Anyone can give me some suggestion or direction to get the wireless work?

Appreciate any suggestion

With the rpmfusion repos enabled you need to do this:

Code:
yum install wl-kmod
(Think I answered the same post over at fedoraforum!)

You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
package-cleanup --dupes
rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

I don't know what to do. Please help me!

I solved this problem, finally a installed wl-kmod, but the wireless still not works!

Looking at the error, we see
Code:
You might consider running yum-complete-transaction first to finish them
So I would say that running
Code:
yum-complete-transaction
as root and then running
Code:
yum install wl-kmod
should fix it.
