    http://www.broadcom.com/docs/linux_sta/README.txt

    I'm trying to figure out what is wrong with that picture...
    I got the wireless driver working, along with the modprobe issue. There was something wrong with my kernel, I booted into a few versions earlier and reinstalled the 3.2.0-38 kernel, and then the wireless worked (wl module, all others blacklisted).

    But I still have the issue with building/compiling anything:

    Code:
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-3.2.0-38-generic
    Trying to reinstall it gives:

    Code:
    Reinstallation of linux-headers-3.2.0-38-generic is not possible, it cannot be downloaded.
    (I am definitely connected to the internet...)
    Linux semi-noob.

    Re: Problem building/compiling anything

    Yes, kernel. I was sort of suspecting that when you couldn't install ia32-libs...

    On compiling, what commands are you using? I notice /usr... when it should be /libs...
    On Ubuntu, you will need headers and tools. Try these commands:
    # apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic
    # apt-get build-dep linux

    To check to see if you have this directory do this:

    # ls /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build

    BUILD INSTRUCTIONS
    ------------------
    1. Setup the directory by untarring the proper tarball:

    For 32 bit: hybrid-portsrc.tar.gz
    For 64 bit: hybrid-portsrc-x86_64.tar.gz

    Example:
    # mkdir hybrid_wl
    # cd hybrid_wl
    # tar xzf <path>/hybrid-portsrc.tar or <path>/hybrid-portsrc-x86_64.tar.gz

    2. Build the driver as a Linux loadable kernel module (LKM):

    # make clean (optional)
    # make
    This is while you are in that ~/hybrid_wl directory. Otherwise it would be
    Code:
    make -C ~/hybrid_wl M='pwd'
    The above broadcom instructions are dated and fail on at least one point. You can not longer link 'uname -r' in a command set with current versions of Ubuntu. Currently, you have to manually do "uname -r" and wait for it to return it's results. Then you have to manually substitute those results back from that into your commands.

    In your first post, you used:
    Code:
    make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd`
    Which would have probably worked if you used
    Code:
    make -C /lib/modules/3.2.0-38-generic/build M='pwd'
    ...instead...

    But immaterial of that, if you don't have a good header file for the kernel you are running... Yes, big problems. Not just for manually compiling, but also for installing and upgrading .deb packages. I see that as a major problem, if true.

    That header file is the same version kernel as you are currently running right? That is sort of cryptic saying it cannot "re-install" it, implying it is already installed or locked. If it was installed, you would think that the error would be something along the lines of "already to current version."

    Is it already installed but messed up or is it truly missing? Can you manually completely remove/apply, then install/apply it from Synaptic?

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-headers-`uname -r`
    This seems to have worked - I switched the server by selecting "Other" and then "Choose best server". The headers seemed to reinstall:

    I would delete this if I knew how (I now have version 0.4), but I don't think this is the problem.

    But anyway, the headers looked reinstalled, and I tried compiling a package from source to test (nautilus-dropbox-1.4.0) and this seemed successful.

    Maybe the errors compiling the wireless drivers were more to do with something wrong with the commands used to build the drivers for my system

    Thanks for help
