    Question Broadcom BMC4313 Driver Installation Issues


    I am trying to install the built in BCM4313 on my Backtrack 5 R1 KDE.

    root@root:~# lspci -n | grep 14e4
    02:00.0 0280: 14e4:4727 (rev 01)

    What I have done so far:

    • Downloaded the official driver:
    • Installed the Kernel headers: # apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r`
    • Removed and reinstalled the Linux Source: # apt-get autoremove linux-source-`uname -r` # apt-get install linux-source-`uname -r`
      Else, # prepare-kernel-sources would throw
      tar: linux-source- Cannot open: No such file or directory
    • Prepared the Kernel Sources like that.
    • Untarred the tarball

    Now when I try to build the driver as a LKM, following happens:
    root@bt:~/hybrid_wl# make clean
    KBUILD_NOPEDANTIC=1 make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd` clean
    make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-source-'
