[Bug 1031831] Re: 3.5.0-7.7~precise1-generic works except for broadcom bcmwl-kernel-source failure


This probably isn't the place for this discussion but I checked
http://packages.ubuntu.com/precise/kernel/ and see that the 3.8 kernel
is available HOWEVER apparently only for 64 bit x86 SMP as a security
update, which is probably where the confusion lies. I gather you aren't
using 64 bit packages on your hardware. I'm not either, but I have also
moved beyond the Ubuntu 12.04LTS on the hardware I reported the bug

  3.5.0-7.7~precise1-generic works except for broadcom bcmwl-kernel-
  source failure

Status in “bcmwl” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I signed up to test backports of quantal kernel to precise LTS. Sorry
  I have not tested Quantal on this system yet.

  Fresh clean install of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on an Acer Aspire One D260

  Major failure during installation: broadcom driver won't install.
  (Notes below) Attaching build log.

  Kernel does run on this hardware, suspend, sound, graphics seem good.

  Wireless non-functional (as expected due to install failure).

  Here are some pertinent lines from Terminal:
