Can't compile driver for BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller
 
I am attempting to switch from Ubuntu to Slackware, and I currently have both installed, however I cannot use my wireless networking card in Slackware. Broadcom released the source to this driver, however I cannot figure out how to compile it. http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php I did exactly what in the readme file,but I get the following error when running the make command.

KBUILD_NOPEDANTIC=1 make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd`
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.38-8-generic'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `driver'. Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.38-8-generic'
make: *** [all] Error 2

By the way I get the same error doing this in Ubuntu 11.04 and Slackware 13.37. Also I am doing using the 64 bit one.

Simplest way would be to use the SlackBuild for that driver. Dont forget that you also need the firmware.

By the way, you don't need to compile that driver in Ubuntu, you can install it using the Additional Drivers-tool.

Thanks, I will try the slackbuild and see what happens. I'm just assuming that this should work on a 64 bit system, because it doesn't actually say if it is 32 or 64 bit.

Had no problems with the Slackbuilds on bot 32 and 64 bit.
