That's true. I'll fix the thread later. The issue is that I'm using the broadcom-sta slackbuild, with the wl driver. The error I got was along the lines of:
ERROR: could not insert 'wl': Exec format error
The solution I'm attempting now is updating my kernel, and using the b43 slackbuilds and hopefully that'll work.
