    Red face Installing Broadcom 4312 Driver

    So i went ahead and downloaded the 32bit version of the driver here:

    Code:
    hoop://broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php

    untared it and got up to point 4 in this manual:


    Code:
    h00p://broadcom.com/docs/linux_sta/README.txt
    replace the 0 with 't'


    it sez: No such file or directory.


    Probably i have to replace the x with something, but i have no idea with what!

    I have Backtrack 3, booted via USB stick on a HP mini 1000.


    Any help is appreciated, since i need to get the Wi-Fi to work, to get crakin

    1) I have no idea what you mean by `it sez: No such file or directory'. What is?

    2) With broadcom's linux_sta driver you will never be able to do monitoring/injection, its the same priviledge as having ndiswrapper. This chipset is not supported natively by b43 so there will be no native support apart from using those two which doesn't allow either capabilities, just connect and surf the internet wirelessly.

    Step 4 has you going into the kernel directory. You most likely don't have the kernel headers installed.
    Code:
    # wget http://www.offensive-security.com/kernel.lzm
    # lzm2dir kernel.lzm /
    This is covered many times in the forum. Search next time.
