F16 x64 broadcom 4314 wifi issue

Hi all,

I have the same issue from F15 with the wifi adaptor.The broadcom bcm4313 on F16.

Re: F16 x64 broadcom 4314 wifi issue

Hello mbalaci

I'm not sure just what issues you are referring to, there were several at various times during the life of F15.

If I were installing wireless for that card on F16, I would install the rpmfusion repositories and use:

Code:
yum install akmod-wl
If you haven't used the 'akmod' version of the driver before, that's highly recommended. It means that the driver rebuilds for each new kernel without you having to wait for rpmfusion to update.

I wouldn't be surprised if after install it didn't work and I had to blacklist the various other broadcom drivers, or if you were one of those who suffered with the "acer_wmi" module that you had to blacklist that as well. But I don't see any new broadcom problems around that you wouldn't have encountered before.

Post back if you do have questions or problems though.

Hi,

yum is unable to find akmod-wl even after installing rpmfusion repo

Hello mbalaci

Maybe the mirror your installation is using hasn't synchronised yet. This one:

Code:
http://mirror.liberty.edu/pub/rpmfusion/nonfree/fedora/releases/16/Everything/x86_64/os/
certainly has it.

There are three possibilities I think.

1. Wait until your mirror synchronises.

2. Edit your rpmfusion non-free file in /etc/yum.repos.d to have that mirror hard coded in.

3. Forgo the akmod variant, which requires quite a lot of dependencies and download the three packages for plain kmod-wl. Then use "yum localinstall" to install them.

I suppose there is a fourth option in that if you use "yum clean all" it will force yum to start again and maybe you'll get lucky with a different mirror.

If you go for option 3, and want more details, post back and I'll look out the notes.
