[Bug 1490713] Re: The Debian control file's "modaliases" is too generic


Thank you! Makes sense. I removed the duplicate product ID at the end of
the patch. I'll upload this together with bug 1491070.

** Changed in: bcmwl (Ubuntu)

  The Debian control file's "modaliases" is too generic

Status in bcmwl package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  Software-properties-gtk offers wl as the driver for all Broadcom wifi
  cards, regardless of whether they are supported or not.  This is due
  to the modaliases field used by the bcmwl-kernel-source package.

  Although in reality I know very little about such things, I'll attach
  a proposed debian/bcmwl-kernel-source.modaliases file based on the
  info here:

  Users are going through needless painful procedures to get the correct
  working driver.
