my bad. i should have mentioned thats for 7.2
we didnt do anything about this issue in 7.1 and
it would require a new kernel which i dont see
happening at this stage in the game

the reason this came about was because i had 2 laptops
both with a broadcom card using b43 module which would
randomly quit working. the wl module fixes this issue.
as far as im aware noone else reported similar issues

do you have an issue staying connected to wifi with a broadcom card?

Thanks for the welcome macondo!
I just found Vector and I liked it for the first sight!
Except of my 2011er Compaq I got it all to work as I wanted it to, but the broadcoms are as shitty as hell I think...
This is the way to get back into my old english skills and enhance my quasi-inexistent linux-skills... ;-)

Just posted in the lounge...

Hello...
My name is Silaz and I'm from germany.
I resurrect this topic due to my lack of things to do just now.
I am a Windows-guy stumbeling into Linux and OpenSource just after WindowsXP-Support stops an so I slided into installing vector, Androidx86, Lubuntu and many other Distros on all my spare-hardware trying to get everything working fast an nice-looking.
I hope you'll give me a warm welcome. Please don't be to rude, my english is a bit rusty and my abilities at the console are almost not existend, but I will try to learn as fast as possible and I am a master of Copy and paste... ;-)
Have a nice day...

Sorry wigums, it doesn't with the newest version...
The wl-driver doesn't even load with the actual VL-7.1-STD...
And due to my lack of knowledge I wasn't able to get more information out of my Compaq CQ56-115EG

just a wild guess that you are asking for a specific piece of software.
i dont know of ANY software for linux that has a directx dependancy.
to me this means its a windows application and would thus be run in
wine anyway, which is where youd install directx

if you want even better support for running windows apps in linux than
 wine offers check out
