Dell Inspiron E1505 running only PCLOS 2012.
I'm getting an error trying to setup my Wireless card and the instructions say to contact you.
In PCC (PCLOS 2012), I go to Network/Internet tab, then Setup New Network Interface, then I select "Wirelsss (Wi-Fi)",
next I select the first choice of three: Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN.
I then click on "Next"
And get the Error message box: Could not install the packages (dkms-broadcom-wl)!
I then click "OK"
and get the error box that says: "Some packages (broadcom-wl) are required but aren't available.
Please email texstar at gmail.com about it.
The following component is missing: wl
The required files can also be installed from this URL:http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php
I email went to the broadcom website and downloaded the required tar.gz file (hybrid-portsrc_x86_32-v5_100_82_112.tar.gz)
What do I do with it exactly? How do I extract the files, and where do they go?
Any help would be appreciated,
BTW-- My wireless was working fine with PCLOS 2010 before going to PCLOS 2012.
I sent an e-mail to Texstar as requested, but thought I'd post here as well.
I hope I don't have to go back to PCLOS 2010
