I am trying to get Wifi working on my Arch Linux installation so I have installed
broadcom-wl-dkms, but it still does not seem to work. I noticed that one every startup I got this message:
Support for cores revisions 0x17 and 0x18 disabled by module param allhwsupport=0. Try b43.allhwsupport=1
So I enabled them as it said, but still the Wifi doesn't work.
broadcom-wl-dkms installation I was told to run the following commands or reboot (neither worked):
rmmod b43 b43legacy ssb bcm43xx brcm80211 brcmfmac brcmsmac bcma wl modprobe wl
Upon running the first one I got this output:
rmmod: ERROR: Module b43legacy is not currently loaded rmmod: ERROR: Module bcm43xx is not currently loaded rmmod: ERROR: Module brcm80211 is not currently loaded rmmod: ERROR: Module brcmfmac is not currently loaded rmmod: ERROR: Module wl is not currently loaded
And the second gave this output:
modprobe: FATAL: Module wl not found in directory /lib/modules/4.11.0-1-hardened
I have also noticed that on Kernel updates I get messages like this:
==> dkms remove broadcom-wl/188.8.131.521 -k 4.11.0-1-hardened Error! There is no instance of broadcom-wl 184.108.40.2061 for kernel 4.11.0-1-hardened (x86_64) located in the DKMS tree.
==> dkms install broadcom-wl/220.127.116.111 -k 4.11.0-2-hardened Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 4.11.0-2-hardened (x86_64) Consult /var/lib/dkms/broadcom-wl/18.104.22.1681/build/make.log for more information.
So I assume that something has gone wrong. What has gone wrong? And how can I fix this and get the Wifi working?
