Meego 1.0 Wifi

 

Overview

What you’ll need

Unfortunately, as with most situations like this, you’ll need a wired connection active in order to download the appropriate files.

Please visit the Broadcom site to read the details on the license of this driver

These steps can be used to create the binary rpm yourself. You need to actually install MeeGo 1.0. These steps won’t work while booting off the live image.


  1. 1)Activate the MeeGo toolbar and select the applications icon

  2. 2)Choose the Accessories section and select Terminal (or type terminal in the search box)

  3. 3)Install the various tools you’ll need

    sudo yum install rpmdevtools

  1. 4)Install the compilers and other tools,

    sudo yum groupinstall "Development Tools"

  1. 5)Install the kernel-netbook-devel package.

    sudo yum install kernel-netbook-devel

  1. 6)Now we’re ready to build and install the new broadcom drivers, my moblin srpm works

    wget http://slaine.org/moblin/releases/2.1/ia32/source/wl-kmod-5.60.48.36-1.moblin.src.rpm

    (This build will download the broadcom driver archive directly from their site)

    rpmbuild --rebuild --target=i586 wl-kmod-5.60.48.36-1.moblin.src.rpm

  1. 7)Install the resulting rpm,

    sudo rpm -ivh ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/i586/wl-kmod-5.60.48.36-1.meego.i586.rpm
