Thanks, looks like it did.  Now, I found those drivers, but after 
copying them to /lib/firmware, and installing them, ndiswrapper -l 
shows this:

[root diablo yum.repos.d]# ndiswrapper -l
Installed drivers:
bcmw15   invalid driver!

[root diablo WLAN]# ndiswrapper -e bcmw15
[root diablo WLAN]# cd /lib/firmware
[root diablo firmware]# ls
bcmwl5.inf  bcmwl5.PNF  bcmwl5.sys
[root diablo firmware]# ndiswrapper -i bcmw15.inf
Installing bcmw15
couldn't copy bcmw15.inf at /usr/sbin/ndiswrapper line 139.
[root diablo firmware]#

I've repeated that several times, even with a full path & with & without 
the .inf appended.

No install due to the above can't copy error.  An ls -l shows:
-r-------- 1 root root 658896 Nov 28 04:35 bcmwl5.inf

So I moved it by hand, but that didn't change anything.  I didn't really 
expect it to, but...

And of course kwifimanager is still deader than last weeks news.

Whats in your wallet? /etc/ndiswrapper that is :)

Mine now shows an empty subdir named /etc/nbdiswrapper/bcm15

I have an SP30676.exe file which is supposed to be a 32 bit driver, 
worked on a gentoo 32 bit system

Anybody else with a clueby4 here, please chime in.

Cheers, Gene
