    RESOLVED: Wireless BCM4313 on Centos 6 problem


    Hi,

    I would really appreciate some help installing that driver, I am following the guide on the centos wiki (wiki.centos.org/HowTos/Laptops/Wireless/Broadcom) , however at step 3 compiling the driver module I get an error:

    I don't see any errors. Are you sure it fails? Immediately after your 'make' command, do 'echo $?', that will report a '0' for a successful make, and non-zero is an error.

    e.g.:

    Code:
    make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/ M=`pwd`;echo $?

    Not IMO, anybody else know? The echo $? will tell you for sure, though.
