I updated the opensuse wiki to reflect the above. And I added a
couple of references to the bc4312.

This is my first experience with linux and wireless, so if one of you
experts feel I messed up the wiki entry, please fix it.

Changed it. Packman has had broadcom kmp packages available for all the
kernel flavors, not just the debug kernel, since they started packaging it.


Okay, from my normal desktop pc (no wireless) via yast I just clicked
broadcom-wl from the broadcom choices. It auto checked only the debug
kernel.

When I installed on the laptop, I did not notice that it auto selected
only the debug kernel, thus my confusion.

I'm going to edit the wiki entry to note that issue.

Additionally, the broadcom-wl package simply provides the module blacklist
necessary for wl.ko to work. It does not require the debug kernel, but it
does have broadcom-wl-kmp as a dependency, which can be fulfilled by any of
the broadcom-wl-kmp-* packages.
