[Bug 1518956] Re: SRU Request: bcmwl: dkms build failures with linux-lts-wily


Hello Andy, or anyone else affected,

Accepted bcmwl into trusty-proposed. The package will build now and be
available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/bcmwl/
+bdcom-0ubuntu0.2 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package.  See
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to
enable and use -proposed.  Your feedback will aid us getting this update
out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug,
mentioning the version of the package you tested, and change the tag
from verification-needed to verification-done. If it does not fix the
bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to
verification-failed.  In either case, details of your testing will help
us make a better decision.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification .  Thank you in

  SRU Request: bcmwl: dkms build failures with linux-lts-wily

Status in bcmwl package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in bcmwl source package in Trusty:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  The lts-wily backported kernel in Trusty causes the DKMS module installed by bcmwl-kernel-source to fail to build.

  [Test Case]
  Install the lts-wily kernel and check that DKMS doesn't fail with the new bcmwl-kernel-source.

  [Regression Potential]
  Low, all the changes are already included in wily.
  We are seeing build failures for dkms packages on trusty + linux-lts-wily.
