problem with driver for Broadcom BCM43142 802.11b/g/n Wireless on Slackware 14.2


Hi everyone,
I'm new to Linux, and I installed Slackware 14.2 on my Laptop. But I'm having problems with installing driver for BCM43142. I downloaded it from this location, ran a broadcom-sta.SlackBuild script and got this result:

you just need to go back to your referent page and down load it and put it into that same dir of your slackbuild it is there I seen it on that page. under:
Source Downloads (Arch-Independent):

then just run it again.

you forgot to download the file README_6.30.223.271.txt in the /compile/broadcom-sta/ directory.

EDIT: BW-userx has been faster!
