Broadcom 14e4,4315 wifi working on HP Mini Netbook on OpenSolaris B105

Hi All,

 I took a couple of days but I finally got ndis wrapper working on the HP Mini Netbook.

My choice of SXDE B105 made the available ndis 1.2.1 broken.

I found https://jp.opensolaris.org/jive/thread.jspa?threadID=88165&tstart=15

And ndis 1.2.2 that works on B105.

The HP driver files that worked were sp39243.exe.

Nwam is now seeing the bcmndis0 and myk0.

I did the build of myk using the gld2 instructions, with this NWAM does not see the link go down.

I'll try to build the gld3 today on B105.

Update: Finally got all the patches and headers correct, build the gldv3 version of myk 2.6.5. now the ndis is hanging up nwam :-)

The joy of testing

HP Mini Netbook running OpenSolaris B105

Hi All,

Quick screen shot of the HP Mini running OpenSolaris B105.

Everything is running but the Broadcomm wifi, it's causing a system panic.

You can see from the screen shot I've put my look and feel on it, Compiz is actually running very well on this system, it was slow on the Acer One, maybe it was just the cube, did not turn it on for the HP.

You can see I have the Avant Window Navigator running in the bottom.

OpenSolaris B105, Acer One, SDcard slots working

Hi All,

 Still in Florida on vacation, I have my spare Acer One with me, Garrett D'Amore and Vincent Wang worked out the issues with the sdcard controllers.

I have a gnome desktop with two sdcards showing up a 16Gb and 4Gb.

I just did an Evolution backup to the 16Gb sdcard, it looks good.

I cannot get to my FTP server from here but I will post the package on January 5th when I get home.

Everything is now working on the Acer Aspire One.

Next, just got my hands on a Elonex WebBook, it has the VIA 1.6Ghz processor.

Happy New Year

Dave
