Default BCM4313 on CentOS 6.3

Hi all,

I'm a complete newbie in Linux and am trying to get my Broadcom BCM4313
working in my Lenovo S10-3t netbook (CentOS 6.3 installed from LiveCD).
I followed the steps in the wiki, which lead me to ELRepo: wl-kmod. I
followed the instructions there until Step 2:

$ mkdir -p ~/rpmbuild/{BUILD,RPMS,SPECS,SOURCES,SRPMS}
$ echo -e "%_topdir $(echo $HOME)/rpmbuild
%dist .el$(lsb_release -s
-r|cut -d"." -f1).local" >> ~/.rpmmacros

Then I got stuck with this message:

bash: lsb_release: command not found

Next, I tried using the driver from Broadcom site, and ended up with this
message:

KBUILD_NOPEDANTIC=1 make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd`
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.32-279.el6.i686'

I'm pretty much totally stuck now, as I have no idea what I'm doing at all
. Would really appreciate any help.

Thanks in advance!

Yum install redhat-lsb. This will install a bunch of stuff to make it
Linux Standard Base compatible.

Trying to install something from another distro's always problematical,
given variances in numbering and dependencies. The "missing module
license" implies there's something not d/l, and if you'd been in a
debian/ubuntu system, and used apt-get, you'd have gotten it.

I did some googling, and found
<http://ktaraghi.blogspot.com/2011/08/how-to-install-broadcom-bcm4311-bcm4312.html>.
Personally, since it's a system driver, I'd sudo -s, mkdir /usr/local/src,
and do the work in there. Other than than, and it's from this year, you
might have better results.

Are you referring to this ELRepo article?

http://elrepo.org/tiki/wl-kmod

It says, "yum install redhat-lsb". Also, if you follow the
instructions in there, you will NOT be building the module as root.
Mark has noted these points in his reply. So, please go through the
wiki carefully and try not to skip any steps.

Will you also show us the output returned by :

lspci -nn | grep -i net

I'd like to see the vendor:device pairing.

My apologies. I was careless and missed that step completely. The
installation went fine (and this time I didn't use root unless specified),
but I stumbled into more problems with the rpm build. More info on the
forum:

Sure! For my Lenovo S10-3t:

Why don't we continue this on the forums? People who are interested
can follow that thread.

The ID pairing [14e4:4727] indicates that it is supported by the bcma
driver offered by the kmod-compat-wireless package from ELRepo:

If this one works for you, you'd not have to go through building of
the wl module.

P.S. All of this should have been done on the ELRepo mailing list.
