[Bug 1595765] Re: bcmwl-kernel-source bcmwl kernel module failed to build


it seems the package is incompatible with the 4.7 kernel, which it's
shows when booted in it and trying to reinstall.

there is in issue open here:

I tried to build that version and after installing I got:
Unpacking bcmwl-kernel-source ( over ( ...
Setting up bcmwl-kernel-source ( ...
Loading new bcmwl- DKMS files...
Building only for 4.7.0-994-generic

there is many errors in the log, probably needs quite some modification.
Feel happy to try and fix it, I really do not have the time at the moment
