Question

I have a Lenovo G550 295895Q and have installed Scientific Linux 5.3_64 bit on it.

The OS is RHEL 5.3 Clone and I use it mainly for stability.

The installation was smooth and it has installed all the hardware but for the wireless Driver.

Can someone please help me in installing the Wireless driver?

The kernel version is 2.6.18.128.1.1, and the wireless card is from Broadcom.

Can someone give me a rpm for it?

 

 

 

Answer

This is an easy fix for this solution:

 

I am running Mandriva 2010 32-bit and 64-bit on two Y530 laptops.  What you need to do is download the following from the link I am providing:

This is the driver you need.  Just follow the instructions and you'll be running wireless in no time.
