I have a broadcom card into my dell vostro 1500 laptop, don't know the exact
mode, but the first time Goddard didn't detected, so I follow this steps:
1. Downloaded the next RPM packages:
2. after that I wrote into the terminal:
yum install broadcom-wl kmod-wl
3. Restart the computer after it finished the instalation, and my wireless
Connect 3 more times, and everything goes well. But after that stop to
detect the wireless card the network connection agent wasn't even showing
it, I restart and start to work, but today I was working and my battery turn
off with oout power, when I connect, the system wasn't detecting the
wireless, restart again, and nothing change, try to re-install the packages,
and nothing happend. usually I work with wireless, I can't stay connect to
a wire, try to find something at some forums, but nothing help.
That is why I'm wirting to this list, to find some help, if I write at the
terminal: lspci doesn't show the wireless card, I thought that maybe could
be a problem with my wireless card, but my windows work just perfect,
Neville told me that could be that whem I'm working with windows something
could fall into that system and that is why, but before the test of today I
wasn't get into windows, since the day that I installed my fedora.
Any sugestion to fix this problem? I need some help guys.

Moving this conversation to the ambassadors list.
For context (original thread below): The Filipino Ambassadors, want to
pitch in, Fedora-style, on an event being held to rebuild the University
of the Philippines's chemistry lab (which burnt down). Herson
Pagcaliwagan, Engels Antonio, and Magie Antonio can likely provide more
The idea is to print media for a Chemistry Remix and distribute it at
the event to spread the word about FOSS and whatnot while hopefully
giving the students/profs/supporters there some useful tools (they lost
all their computers/software in the fire as well). There is a booth fee,
but it's not clear yet how much it is. (My response to Herson's question
of "how much should we look at giving?" is "What's the minimum amount to
get a booth?")
This is on the Events page (thanks to Herson) under "rakCHEMrol" - see
Estimated attendance is 2000, it's at a major prestigious technical
university in a major city in the Philippines that doesn't yet have much
of a FOSS presence.
* Has anyone done an event like this before? I'm actually excited about
this since it's a non-FOSS event that may get people who otherwise
wouldn't be aware of FOSS, introduced to Fedora - this isn't preaching
to the choir at all - but it's also something I haven't really seen done
before, so pointers on making sure we don't go off-topic/off-focus, and
tips on doing this effectively, would be *incredibly* welcome.
* Because of the specialized audience, the media distributed will be a
Chemistry-focused Remix rather than the standard F13 image.
** Is this okay?
** How can we make sure people get pointed to Fedora as an upstream, and
are aware that this is a specialized version of our main "product" (or
is this even important)?
* Can you think of anything that's missing? Thoughts so far:
** Have local Ambassadors there
** Come up with a rocket pitch for Fedora/FOSS for this particular
audience (help! Herson, Engels, Magie... what do we have so far on this?)
** Producing media (chemistry remix)
** Pay fee to get a booth table, so we have a space to stand and hand
out stuff from
** Print a one-page flyer with our rocket pitch
* Any other thoughts?

Subject: Request for mentor
To: wiki <wiki(a)lists.fedoraproject.org>
I've already contributed a bit, but as I was reading Mike McGrath's
"How to be a successful contributor" Wiki article, I realized that
I hadn't really introduced myself. I also realized that I'd like a
sponsor/mentor. This is my attempt to remedy both of those. ;)
First of all, some quick facts: My name is Aaron Faanes. My FAS
account and IRC nick is dafrito. I live in the central timezone.
I've been using *nix in some form for the past few years. I ran
FreeBSD a few years ago, then Ubuntu for about a year. I saw a talk by
Greg Kroah-Hartman that praised Fedora and Red Hat for their
commitment to upstream, so I switched and have been using it almost
exclusively ever since.
I'm a jack-of-all-trades sort of person. I've got a few years of
tooling/docs/support side of things. Consequently, I feel like I could
have posted this sponsor request to the test, docs, and websites
mailing lists all with similar levels of enthusiasm.
However, I decided to request a wiki mentor since the wiki seems to be
where I've found my groove. I've done some writing, some template
work, and I'd be interested to continue that work. I've also made
some suggestions (some good, some not-so-good ;) ), and I'd like to
work with a sponsor to guide me towards the ideas that have consensus
and interest. I've also had an interest in being an admin for the
Wiki, so a sponsor could help see if I'm up for that task as well.
I'd like to start small. I feel like there's a tendency, at least for
myself, to dive into too much and get overwhelmed, so I feel like a
sponsor would help ensure that things don't get too crazy. As far as
timing is concerned, I can commit two to three afternoons (10-15
hours) a week.
Thank you for your consideration,
