Hello to all;
I have made a clean Lenny installation in a HP Pavilion dv5 1112es, everything has been ok until I'vre reached the wi-fi configuration.
This is my uname -a
Linux dharma 2.6.26-2-686 #1 SMP Wed Nov 4 20:45:37 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux
this is my card according to lspci:
02:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01)
and the chip model, following linuxwireless.org
# lspci -vnn | grep 14e4
02:00.0 Network controller : Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g [14e4:4315] (rev 01)
So I've got BCM4312 802.11b/g - low power which uses b43 driver. I install b43-fwcutter with aptitude, agree to install the firmware and everything seems to go ok, but after reboot there is no sign of wl.
lo no wireless extensions
eth0 no wireless extensions
I was told to modprobe driver b43
# modprobe b43
# lsmod | grep b43
b43 110716 0
ssb 33476 1 b43
rfkill 5652 1 b43

[ 232.440371] Broadcom 43xx driver loaded [ Features: PMLR, Firmware-ID: FW13 ]
but still no trace of wifi. After some more google and searching I was given this web site: http://aptgetinstallanarchism.wordpr...2bg-en-debian/
I updated my linux headers, downloaded the file from http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php
, make a temp directoy in my home, uncompress the file and got this error
# make -C /usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r) M=$(pw d)

And I have stalled here, don't know what might be wrong. I suppose the problem now is in the compilation process, but I'm not sure. Can anybody give me a hand please?
Thanks a lot
