I have a Lenovo laptop I am playing around with. It currently has Windows installed, no Linux. It uses Broadcom chipset for wireless. I decided to try out some live CDs to see if any worked with the machine OOTB. I tried 3 distros including PCLOS. Only PCLOS worked with the wireless. The other two did not. They both seemed to have an issue related to a blacklist file which prevented the Broadcom drivers from loading.
What I was wondering was if anyone was familiar with the blacklisting of the drivers and if this was something I might need to worry about with PCLOS in the future. From what I can tell, the other distros are Debian based. So I wasn't sure if the blacklisting was related to how Debian was handling conflicting drivers. Or, if the blacklisting was because of an issue with a kernel version and down the road, if PCLOS used that kernel, then I would run into the same issue.
Thanks for any insights.
