http://forums.opensuse.org – Hi All, This is my first post here. I'm using Opensuse 11.2 (Gnome)and the inbuilt kernel is 2.6.31.xx. My laptop is having bcm4312 (14e4 : 4315 id)chipset for wireless. (0e:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01) 0e:00.0 0280: 14e4:4315 (rev 01) ) I have read multiple times here in some threads that this kernel will require Broadcom-wl drivers(Tried ,No success with this) And If I want to use b43 drivers , then I need to go for the 2.6.32 kernel (stable one from this release). I've done the same exactly given in some other link - Steps- make mrproper make menuconfig make dep make clean make bzImage make modules make modules_install After rebooting it's not showing anything new.Just the boot menu with the older one. Experts, Kindly let me know what I'm missing?>:( (Distributions)
