i just installed rome kde plasma to give it a spin, and i really like it, but i can never get broadcom to work so i end up going back to fedora or kubuntu as both always work for me…i have all repos enabled, and have “dkms-broadcom-wl” installed…still no luck…i looked through the forum and found nothing to solve it…heres my card and i appreciate the help…
This site lists all drivers supported by Linux kernel.For Broadcom BCM43142 it shows not supported. I have not idea if dkms-broadcom-wl and dkms-broadcom-wl-common work. Does user need to sudo modprobe b43?
I asked on OpenMandriva Chat:
We have a package dkms-broadcom-wl and dkms-broadcom-wl-common. Does this work? If so this user needs help making it work: Still no support for broadcom?.
We also seem to have b43-fwcutter and bcm43xx-fwcutter I have no idea it these work, how to use them or if that is what user d4k needs.
Edit: The following is about OMLx being a Community distribution of LInux:
Looks like that package is supposed to install some restricted (license) firmware that is not in Linux kernel. What we need is for some one with the necessary hardware to install it and tell us if it works. No one that I know of in contributor group has this hardware. Or if it does not work what error messages, what do logs say, ect. We can walk someone through how to gather the information if needed.
12 part time, unpaid, volunteers simply don’t have enough hardware to test everything.
