Re: [SOLVED] broadcom-wl* kernel 3.18 issues thread

OK guys, I had some things to take of yesterday, so I didn't notice the new developments. I will work on adding this patch to broadcom-wl-dkms and will post back here shortly.

Re: [SOLVED] broadcom-wl* kernel 3.18 issues thread

Hello,

Today after kernel upgrade to 3.18.2-2-ARCH broadcom-wl from AUR stopped to work.

I followed the instructions posted by  acssilva on https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/broadcom-wl/, but still am in trouble:

Here is what I did:

1. Downloaded broadcom-wl.tar.gz and hybrid-v35_64-nodebug-pcoem-6_30_223_248.tar.gz  into installation directory under root

2. tar -xvf broadcom-wl.tar.gz creates broadcom-wl directory

3. Downloaded the patch http://pastebin.com/pATazP6K into broadcom-wl directory

4.  Edited  PKGBUILD file in broadcom-wz for adding the new patch:
   Line 15: added the new patch you just download in the "source" list: 'null-pointer-crash.patch'
   Line 34: added the new patch in prepare function: "patch -p1 -i null-pointer-crash.patch"

5.  Entered makepkg -f -A --skipinteg which gives: ERROR: Running makepkg as root is not allowed as it can cause permanent, catastrophic damage to your system

Also, broadcom-wl is marked as Flagged out-of-date (2015-01-20) in red under Package Actions - does it mean it's not maintained anymore?

Please help.

Try without sudo. And you can run only "makepkg -f"

Pretty self-explanatory: running makepkg as root is not allowed. This has always been the case as well. Why are you building stuff from AUR as root?

If I build it as a user XYZ, the ability to create Wi-Fi connection will be only for XYZ, but not the other user?

Does it mean that broadcom-wl-dkms is preferred over broadcom-wl (which is marked as "Flagged out-of-date (2015-01-20)" ) ?

What's the advantage of one over another?

No - just give the maintainer on broadcom-wl a little bit of time to adopt the fixes; he's usually way quicker to test & adopt patches than I am, so let's cut him some slack. That package should have never been marked out of date in the first place, since upstream is still at 6.30.223.248. It's always annoying when people mark things out of date when they're not supposed to.

As for the difference between broadcom-wl and broadcom-wl-dkms: there is no difference between the driver itself once installed, but the dkms version will automatically recompile when you update your kernel. For further details, please see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Dy … le_Support.

broadcom-wl-dkms uses dkms to rebuild the module automatically whenever a new kernel is booted. You need to enable dkms for this (systemctl enable dkms && systemctl start dkms).

Personally, I prefer this version, since I can upgrade kernels without having to do anything manually.

However, none of both packages supercedes the other, they're merely different flavours. broadcom-wl is sometimes considered "upstream" for broadcom-wl-dkms.

Re: [SOLVED] broadcom-wl* kernel 3.18 issues thread

BCM4352 sorted out here too via broadcom-wl-dkms ... regardless I've ordered the Intel WiFi/BTLE module suggested few pages ago, it was like $20, it will hopefully make me forget about this hybrid BCM stuff.

Linux localhost 3.18.2-2-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri Jan 9 07:37:51 CET 2015 x86_64 GNU/Linux
01:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4352 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter [14e4:43b1] (rev 03)

Thanks a lot to whoever fixed it and for the quick update in AUR

Problems resolved for BCM4313 on linux-ck and broadcom-wl-ck from the ck-repo. Thanks to all involved! Looking at the Ubuntu package was a clever way to find a quick fix.
