The problem is that RPMfusion hasn't updated their kmod-wl package for the latest kernel. The kmod-wl will install for the previous f21 kernel 3.17.6.300.fc21.

Had the same troubles, installing and enabling lightdm has worked for me on a Dell Inspiron 1521 with radeon xpress 1270. I don't know what the problem is with gdm, but this has woked. I found another message with the same issue at http://www.linuxformat.com/forums/vie...

+remjg what did you working system show for the device ID of the Dell 370 device?

I have not re-installed windows and don't have windows available to boot with, however I did boot with the Dell diagnostics disc and ran the hardware tests which all passed. It showed the Dell wireless 370 bluetooth devices ( 413c:8157 keyboard & 413c:8158 mousepad also shown seperately as those devices) as a subsystem under the bcm2046b1 hub (0a5c:4500)which was shown in the lsusb output. It also showed a seperate device for Dell wireless 370 bluetooth minicard with tests for led,usb interface, antenna, which all passed, but it showed no device ID number, other than 0a5c:4500,Dell usb BIST.

Mine doesn't work and this is what I have installed!

Bus 003 Device 002: ID 0a5c:4500 Broadcom Corp. BCM2046B1 USB 2.0 Hub (part of BCM2046 Bluetooth)

So it's not just a matter of upgrading, this problem has been going on for years on all versions of Fedora as far back as I can see in the google searches. This post is why I decided to try upgrading to Fedora 20 but no different than 19

I just upgraded to Fedora 20 and still doesn't find my BCM2046B1 device or even show the Dell device in lsusb?
