Hello,

  I successfully built the sources for 64 bit linux drivers from

      http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php

  on the machine

      Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.35.6-45.fc14.x86_64 #1 SMP Mon Oct 18 23:57:44 UTC 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
  
  and got wl.ko:

      /lib/modules/2.6.35.6-45.fc14.x86_64/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/wl.ko
      -rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 4061240  /lib/modules/2.6.35.6-45.fc14.x86_64/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/wl.ko*

  The Broadcom card is:

      0c:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4322 802.11a/b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller (rev 01)
      (full output of lspci is attached at the bottom of this email)

  However, all attempts to install as per the instructions in
  the readme http://www.broadcom.com/docs/linux_sta/README.txt
  failed.  The details of all the things I tried and the
  response from the system is given below:

  How to fix this?

  Thanks,
