I am trying to get the wireless card of my laptop (Broadcom BCM43142) to work under kali linux (latest version, 64bit). Nero 6 Windows 8 64 Bit there. At the moment (without installing anything), it is not recognised at all. I have never installed any drivers on linux systems, so i have almost no idea what to do. EDIT: after a lot of searching and following a lot of tutorials without success, I found this: I followed it, and after I run the script I get this: KBUILD_NOPEDANTIC=1 make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd` make: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-3.18.0-kali3-amd64' CFG80211 API is prefered for this kernel version Using CFG80211 API /usr/src/linux-headers-3.18.0-kali3-common/scripts/Makefile.build:397: *** missing separator. Make: *** [_module_/root/Desktop/drivers/broadcom#2/broadcom] Error 2 make: *** [sub-make] Error 2 make: *** [all] Error 2 make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-3.18.0-kali3-amd64' make: *** [all] Error 2 cp: cannot stat `wl.ko': No such file or directory Error: Module bcma is not currently loaded FATAL: Module wl not found.
This is the same i get if i run make again, in the folder the script downloaded. Anyone have any idea why this is happening?
