The snag I ran into had to do with the fact that the un-networked
laptop, while trying to install the broadcom rpm and the dependencies,
kept throwing me a curve: dnf kep saying it was unable to sync with the
repositories: updates, fedora, rpmfusion....
How could it, since I was trying to install the very things that WOULD
enable it to sync.
So, before I gave up, I added the command argument:
and lo and behold all the rpms in question got installed, and I rebooted,
and the network was on. Ran updates. All is well.
Thanx a lot!!
