You want ito nstall kmod-wl and it will install all dependencies .

Why would I do that?
I already have a driver "b43" from the new kernel-3.2 loaded and this
seems to be the advised driver, not the wl driver.

I am just missing the firmware!

Just try what i said and I think You will *Like it .

Someone FINALLY got around to take the b43-cutter out of Fedora.

OK I will try it.

(If b43-fwcutter isn't needed any more why still include the package?
Though I see it is still a package for Fed15!)

And I thought the firmware for more Broadcom chips was going to be included in the 3.2 kernel.


Believe me I have ask myself the same question at least the last two Fedora releases.
