Can't blacklist ssb to allow kmod-wl to work

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Just upgraded to Fedora 18 on my Dell Mini 9 netbook. `kmod-wl` is the wifi driver that works on this netbook (Broadcom BCM4312). It normally worked fine with past versions of Fedora, but on F18 the `ssb` kernel module keeps getting loaded and it conflicts with `wl`, and nothing I do stops the module from being automatically loaded. These steps always work to fix the wireless: 1. rmmod ssb 2. modprobe wl # not sure if necessary since it's already loaded 3. service NetworkManager restart If I could prevent ssb from being loaded to begin with, my wifi should work from the start.
