I've finally got my new laptop and I've managed to get F20 installed on it.
I've got a number of problems to work on yet - web cam and touch pad buttons -
but my main problem is the WIFI.
On the DELL I used broadcom-wl and kmod-wl and had to update it every time I
upgraded the kernel, but it worked,
Now I've got a newer Broadcom chipset on the replacement laptop and so far all
I can Google is people who've failed to get it working.
Can anyone point me to a post where it's worked. Below is the lspdi output.
