    Cannot install driver for Broadcom BCM43228 on laptop

    I have been trying to install the necessary Broadcom drivers needed to see this interface.

    My uname -a returns

    Linux linux-0kp0 3.0.76-0.11-default #1 SMP Fri Jun 14 08:21:43 UTC 2013 (ccab990) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    rm -qa |grep kernel returns

    nfs-kernel-server-1.2.3-18.29.1
    kernel-default-extra-3.0.76-0.11.1
    kernel-firmware-20110923-0.42.49
    kernel-default-base-3.0.76-0.11.1
    kernel-default-3.0.76-0.11.1

    I am pointing to the following repositories

    zypper lr -d
    # | Alias | Name | Enabled | Refresh | Priority | Type | URI | Service
    --+--------------------------------------------------+--------------------------------------------------+---------+---------+----------+--------+-------------------------------------------------------+--------

    When I attempt to install broadcom-wl, I receive the following dependency error.

    zypper in broadcom-wl

    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    Resolving package dependencies...

    Problem: nothing provides kernel(xen:kernel) = 036c1ddeb629ddd6 needed by broadcom-wl-kmp-xen-5.100.82.112_k2.6.34.10_0.2-9.2.x86_64
    Solution 1: do not install broadcom-wl-5.100.82.112-9.2.x86_64
    Solution 2: break broadcom-wl-kmp-xen-5.100.82.112_k2.6.34.10_0.2-9.2.x86_64 by ignoring some of its dependencies

    Choose from above solutions by number or cancel [1/2/c] (c):




    Am I pointing to the wrong repository or possibly missing something from my system?
    Could someone please help point me in the right directions. I read over several theads to get this far and am now at a bit of a loss.
    I am somewhat new to Linux but not to other types of unix.

    Thanks in adavance.
