Thanks in Advance ;)

Hello
you need to install the rpmfusion repo

Code: Select all

sudo dnf install --nogpgcheck https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-8.noarch.rpm
sudo dnf install --nogpgcheck https://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/free/el/rpmfusion-free-release-8.noarch.rpm https://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/el/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-8.noarch.rpm
and then install the broadcom-wl module

Code: Select all

sudo dnf install akmod-wl broadcom-wl
Then reboot, which will take longer than usual while the wl module is built
