initial version

Broadcom Inc. and subsidiaries BCM43142 fedora 29, no wifi

Yes, same old story Broadcom is surprisingly not working with Fedora 29, I tried this:

sudo dnf install -y https://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-29.noarch.rpm https://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-29.noarch.rpm
sudo dnf intall -y broadcom-wl kernel-devel
sudo akmods --force --kernel 'uname -r' --a kmod wl

And I get this back:

Could not find files needed to compile modules for uname -r
Are the development files for kernel uname -r or the appropriate kernel-devel package installed?

Any idea on how to solve this, I'm working on fedora 29, a quick google search says that it might be that the driver is not supported for the version of kernel I'm using.
