I ve got this update problem for å couple of weeks. When i try to upgrade, I get this message in the end of all updates: Erro: Package: kmod-wl-4.0.7-200.fc21.x86_64- (rpmfusion-nonfree-updates) Requires: kernel-uname-r = 4.0.7-200.fc21.x86_64

I have encountered this many times before, but then the missing packages appeared after a few days. Can anybody tell me if it's summer, or if I hav done something wrong?

wl-kmod & kmod-wl are they both the same?

rpmfusion does not update kernel modules as fas Fedora does so when you get a new kernel you must wait until rpmfusion update the kernel module kmod-wl normally used or require if you have a broadcom wireless card, to go around this you could install akmod-wl that will recompile the module when you update to a new kernel. If you have no need to kmod-wl module then you can safe it remove. Please verify that you do not require kmod-wl before removing it.

Good Luck.

Ok. So I have two options. 1. Wait for det kernel module. 2. Install akmod-wl.
