New dell laptop

Finally my long term concern about my thinkpad r51 came to an end. I brought a new dell laptop inspiron 14r. I had faced a small issue with broadcom 4313 chipset. I had tried kubuntu maverick in my dell laptop. The kernel in which I found the problem was 2.6.35-23. Just download the broadcom driver from the broadocm website. Just follow the instructions mentioned in the README file. I had added the b43 and ssb modules to the blacklist and it didn’t worked for me. So please rename those module ( b43.ko to b43.ko.orig and ssb.ko to ssb.ko.orig). I think for some reason, kernel is again loading these modules during boot. The renaming of the files worked for me 🙂
