Problems building Broadcom 802.11 linux STA Driver in Slackware 13.37
After a few years of using Ubuntu, I decided to switch to a more pure distro. I just finished installing (Full) Slackware 13.37 on an Asus Eee PC 1215B and the Broadom (4313) wireless network card isn't working properly. So, I did some research and found that Broadcom makes drivers for linux. I downloaded the drivers and the README.TXT and started working. I untar the driver and then use make. My laptop tap dances for a minute then gives me some errors. Some of wich are (I wish I had writen of them down more, but I have no internet in my tent, and I was running late for work):
error: implicit declaration of function 'init_MUTEX'
make: *** [ALL] ERROR 2
After the "make: ***[ALL] ERROR 2" I get bumped to the command prompt and does not make the required wl.ko
After doing some searches, at first glance it looks like I might be missing the Slackware kernel headers package. Do those get installed with a full install, and if they don't where can I get them? I appologize in advance for the lack of all the errors I was getting. Please let me know if I am doing this backwards or just completely messed up.
