    Turns out that i had to use the modprobe lib80211 before insmod wl. I dont think this would help anyone though, because it was an error on my part.

    No problem. It seems that with Arch, I just run into problem after problem. Now, i cant get xorg, and gnome to work. Hopefully someone will help with that soon.

    Edit:
    This is the error I get when i run insmod wl.ko:
    insmod: error inserting 'wl.ko': -1 Invalid module format
    I have tried this withought kde and it still does not work.
