    Default Re: What i made wrong (BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN)

    is i have to run it under :Linux bt 2.6.38.4 #1 SMP Wed Aug 17 21:42:30 EDT 2011 x86_64 GNU/Linux.

    not under :Linux bt 2.6.39.4 #1 SMP Wed Aug 17 21:42:30 EDT 2011 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    or i have to make this step :

    Code:
    root@bt:~# prepare-kernel-sources
    root@bt:~# cd /usr/src/linux
    root@bt:~# cp -rf include/generated/* include/linux/

    BR,
