This is my first void installation and is on a freshly wiped machine.
I have installed void apparently ok. Connected ethernet and downloaded the wl module for the internal broadcom card (I know from previous distros on this machine that the wl driver is the correct choice).
After rebooting; wl is not loaded. modprobe wl produces:
modprobe: FATAL: Module wl not found in directory /lib/modules/4.12.13_1
Looking in /lib/modules and /boot shows me that I am running 4.12.13_1 kernel and I have an extensive directory tree with 4.12.13_1 modules. I also have a directory 4.17.4_1 containing only the broadcom wl driver.
- How did I get into this mess? What did I do wrong in xbps-* to end up with drivers for the wrong kernel?
- How can I download or rebuild wl for 4.12.13_1?
- How can I upgrade my kernel to 4.17.4_1? It’s been at least 10 years since I had any need to tinker with the kernel and I am fairly rusty.
Many thanks for your help.
