Working with BCM4318

Postby chiefjim on Sat Feb 13, 2010 3:05 pm

Little frustrated. My ACER laptop connects just fine using LM8 Gnome. Yet with KDE4 it won't even initialize the device. Aren't these using the same kernel?

Disregard. After installing b43-fwcutter all is well. Still frustrated why the Gnome version works out of the box while the KDE4 requires extra hoops to be jumped through.
