Hello,

I recently installed Fedora 18 on my Macbook. However, it seems to me that Fedora does not recognize that I have wireless at all, it does not appear as an option. I tried to install the driver by I still failed to make it work.

And

$ uname -r
3.7.4-204.fc18.x86_64

Also, when I put sudo yum install kmod-wl-3.7.4-204.fc18.x86_64.x86_64 I receive:

Downloading Packages:
warning: /var/cache/yum/x86_64/18/rpmfusion-nonfree-updates/packages/broadcom-wl-5.100.82.112-4.fc18.noarch.rpm: Header V3 RSA/SHA256 Signature, key ID e31b30ca: NOKEY

GPG key retrieval failed: [Errno 14] Could not open/read file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-nonfree-fedora-18-x86_64

I am a new linux user, and I do not understand much of linux terms.

UPDATE:

I installed rpm fusion non free package but the wireless still does not exist.

I don't know why it can't find the gpg key if you installed the rpmfusion release pacakge, but you could try:

yum install --nogpgcheck kmod-wl
