    Ubuntu 12.04 Broadcom Sta driver installation failed

    My computer is a HP Pavilion dm5. On all previous releases of Ubuntu I would open up additional drivers, plug my computer into ethernet and install the driver and all would be fine. Now when I do that I get:

    "Sorry, installation of this driver failed. Please have a look at the log file for details: /var/log/jockey.log"

    Thanks in Advance - Natethegreat131

    Please see here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...ghlight=jockey

    If your pci.id is the same, please proceed. If it's different, post it here and we'll work out a fix.

    Please do:
    Code:
    sudo su
    echo "blacklist brcmsmac" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    exit
    Reboot and let us have your report.

    Re: Ubuntu 12.04 Broadcom Sta driver installation failed

    Thanks for getting back to me. I ran the commands that you told me in a terminal window and then rebooted...nothing changed.

    Was I supposed to do something else?
