Sorry, too little sleep apparently. We didn't build it in that directory. Whoops! Code: cp -vi ~/broadcom/wl.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/extra/...

    Hahaha. It's ok. Thanks and here is the output.

    Code:
    [jun@localhost ~]$ cd broadcom/
    [jun@localhost broadcom]$ cp -vi ~/broadcom/wl.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/extra/
    `/home/jun/broadcom/wl.ko' -> `/lib/modules/2.6.32-71.24.1.el6.i686/extra/wl.ko'
    cp: cannot create regular file `/lib/modules/2.6.32-71.24.1.el6.i686/extra/wl.ko': Permission denied
    [jun@localhost broadcom]$ su -c cp -vi ~/broadcom/wl.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/extra/
    su: invalid option -- 'v'
    Try `su --help' for more information.
    [jun@localhost broadcom]$
    I noticed the invalid option error but honestly I don't know what it means

    Of you're going to use su -c you need to enclose the following command in quotes

    Code:
    su -c 'cp -vi ~/broadcom/wl.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/extra/'

    Code:
    [jun@localhost ~]$ su -c 'cp -vi ~/broadcom/wl.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/extra/'
    Password: 
    cp: cannot stat `/root/broadcom/wl.ko': No such file or directory
    [jun@localhost ~]$
    I don't get it. It says I have the files "wl.ko" and yet it says "No such file..."

    Code:
    [jun@localhost ~]$ ls broadcom/
    built-in.o                                 modules.order   wl.ko.unsigned
    hybrid-portsrc_x86_32-v5_100_82_38.tar.gz  Module.symvers  wl.mod.c
    lib                                        src             wl.mod.o
    Makefile                                   wl.ko           wl.o
    [jun@localhost ~]$
    Thank you!

    EDIT: Just added this one FWIW.

    Oh, it's because we can't use the ~ shortcut with su. It's exanding to /home/root, since you're running the command as the root user. Just use the full path to the file, ie, /home/jun/broadcom/wl.ko in place of ~/broadcom/wl.ko.

    Wireless working !!!



    These are the steps I did:

    1) Install SL6 on my G430 Lenovo.
    2) # yum update
    3) su -c 'yum install kernel-headers-`uname -r` kernel-devel-`uname -r`'
    4) su -c 'yum install gcc'
    5) mkdir ~/broadcom
    6) cd ~/broadcom
    7) wget http://www.broadcom.com/docs/linux_s...0_82_38.tar.gz
    8] tar xvfz hybrid-portsrc_x86_32-v5_100_82_38.tar.gz
    9) make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/ M=`pwd`
    *Error report said "make" command not found so is sill had to
    10) yum install make and executed # 9 again.
    11) nano ~/broadcom/src/include/typedefs.h
    *Edit files: #ifndef TYPEDEF_BOOL
    typedef unsigned char bool;
    #endif

    TO

    /*ifndef TYPEDEF_BOOL
    typedef unsigned char bool;
    #endif
    */

    12) su -c 'cp -vi /home/jun/broadcom/wl.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/extra/'
    13) insmod wl
    14) depmod $(uname -r)
    15) modprobe wl
    16)# init 6

    BINGO!!!

    Notes: I also also blacklisted rmmod b43, ssd

    Hope this can be of help to anybody who would like to try SC6 on wireless too.

    And as always, thank you guys for the time and guidance.

    regards,

    nujinini
