What does this error mean?

Postby Delicadaz » Sun Mar 27, 2011 9:33 pm

Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 2.6.37-12-generic (i686)

Consult the make.log in the build directory

/var/lib/dkms/bcmwl/5.60.48.36+bdcom/build/ for more information.

dpkg: error processing bcmwl-kernel-source (--configure):

subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 10

constant errors whilst trying to get wirelss and nvidia driver turned on.

i have followed the Guru's instructions for installing nvidia driver. but 3 times ive tried to turn on wireless driver and 3 times it crashed.

the above error comes from trying to use the software centre and install Smplayer

and i have crash reports for bcmwl-kernel-........... failed to install or upgrade error

any IDEAS on this please

cheers Daz

Wireless and video drivers are not building headers with new kernel.

performed this kernel update on several Pc,s laptops net books now with not one issue my self.

I need screen shots of this I think.

Video drivers, use the newer 270.xx drivers I listed before.

Wireless, need more info on what card it is.


Try this for wireless fix if it's broudcom kuz sta drivers have a build header issue that's well documented.



Code: Select all

sudo modprobe b43
dmesg | grep b43
iwconfig


now install and activate via additional drivers found in system/administration us the b43 drivers not sta

Then run this to make changes permanent.

Code: Select all

sudo su
echo b43 >> /etc/modules
exit

Use the codes posted above in terminal and install the b43 drivers, just remove the STA drivers.

We are waiting for a new STA release to add support for new Kernels. The b43 will install no problem.

You tried what I listed for b43. Followed the steps in every way ?

NEVER seen this fail, only the STA driver fails.

Code: Select all

darren@darren-laptop:~$ sudo modprobe b43
[sudo] password for darren:
darren@darren-laptop:~$ dmesg | grep b43
darren@darren-laptop:~$ iwconfig
lo        no wireless extensions.

eth0      no wireless extensions.

darren@darren-laptop:~$



goto system/prefrences/hardware drivers i donot have additional drivers option

this is only option it gives me; These package contains Broadcom 802.11 Linux STA wireless driverfor use with Broadcom's BCM4311-, BCM4312-, BCM4321-, andBCM4322-based hardware.

click to install = SystemError: installArchives() failed

there is no b43 option

can this be installed manually
