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.

HP Mini netbook with Opensolaris

Hi All,

 So I received an HP Mini Netbook yesterday, looks like it has the same Intel chipset as the Axer Aspire One.

It has a Marvell (myk) ethernet and Broadcomm wifi.

  SDcard works out of the box.

  Getting the grub int13 error trying to do a DVD install, had to go back to SXDE B94 to get DVD install to work, PXE install would work if we had the Marvell ethernet in the DVD.

I've just finished doing a ISO luupgrade to SXDE B105.

See if I can get it all working :-)
