what's wrong with this? already tried to compile the x64 driver for the wlan but it keeps saying

Code:
make
KBUILD_NOPEDANTIC=1 make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd`
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.40.4-5.fc15.x86_64'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `Folder'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.40.4-5.fc15.x86_64'
make: *** [all] Error 2
gcc and kernel-devel is installed. Would really appreciate any help here!

Re: acer aspire 5742g wlan

pardon my pushing but I'm dying here. Just don't get it. Even after patching "src/wl/sys/wl_linux.c" it still won't run... would someone please put me out of my misery?

here the kernel-log to big for posting... it says something about "unsupported hardware please report"

Re: acer aspire 5742g wlan

I don't know what to do about that. Sorry. But what about trying the pre-compiled binary broadcom-wl driver from RPM Fusion? If you don't have some special reason not to try, it would take about two minutes to install it using your wired NIC and get the answer (install the repos, run yum install akmod-wl, reboot, check for networks). If it doesn't work at first, there are several kernel modules known to interfere with it (e.g., ssb, bcma, acer_wmi). Blacklisting those usually lets broadcom-wl take off. Another common mistake after installing akmod-wl is to reboot back into an old kernel that doesn't have a kernel-devel installed (don't do that).

P.S.: You should fully update the system via your wired NIC before installing akmod-wl. Otherwise, the akmod may not have what it needs (i.e., kernel-devel) to generate the kmods for an old kernel.
