Wireless won't work

http://forums.opensuse.org – Hey, I'm having trouble getting my wireless to work. Here's my computers' info. Dell Inspiron B130 Pentium M processor a BCM4319 (AirForce One 54g) 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller I know the problem, but that problem leads to another problem. When I upgraded to OpenSUSE 11.2, I couldn't get onto my wireless network anymore. I found out that it was because I didn't have the drivers that I needed. The b43 drivers from Broadcom. Having no internet connection, I couldn't use the fwcutter, so I got the Wireless Compat (December version), as I did the same with 11.1 and it worked. Once I had gotten it unpacked, I tried to "make" it, as it told me to in the instructions. Then I get an error: ./scripts/gen-compat-autoconf.sh config.mk > include/linux/compat_autoconf.h make -C /lib/modules/2.6.31.5-0.1-desktop/build M=/home/Izaak/Downloads/compat-wireless-2009-12-11 modules make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.31.5-0.1-desktop/build: No such file or directory. Stop. make: *** [modules] Error 2 So I go to /lib/modules/2.6.31.5-0.1-desktop/, and sure enough, there's a build file. But when I look at it, it links to a nonexistent directory, /usr/src/linux-2.6.31.5-0.1-obj/i386/desktop. The furthest I can get is to /usr/src/, and the only thing in it is "packages". Can anyone tell me what to do? (Distributions)
