In the latest cm9 nightly build - update-cm-9-20120419-NIGHTLY, my wifi is not work with my own kernel.

So, I checked the catalog, and found this: wifi modules was changed.
http://review.cyanogenmod.com/#/c/14...onfigCommon.mk

old path: /system/modules/bcm4329.ko
new path: /system/lib/modules/bcm4329.ko

It will cause your wifi not work with custom kernel.

If your wifi is not work, just make a symbol link, type these command in the terminal:

su
mount -o remount,rw /system
ln -s /system/modules/bcm4329.ko /system/lib/modules/bcm4329.ko
#Thanks Paragon_X, I forgot to tell you to remount /.
mount -o remount,ro /system

Or, you are the kernel developer, your should put your kernel modules in both path, or link them.

Thanks

Okay thanks so regarding the command written... is there spaces in there or am I seeing things?

ln -s /system/modules/bcm4329.ko /system/lib/modules/bcm4329.ko

I'm not familiar with typing in superuser so I have to ask

There are spaces.

If you are unfamiliar with the spaces, then you will be unfamiliar with the before and after commands around that command too:

mount -o remount,rw /system

and

mount -o remount,ro /system

Thanks that will be handy for surprised users, if CM actually thought things through, they would link the dirs to allow a transition time where kernels work with modules in old location and new location.

Hi,im kinda really noob at this stuff atm but do we type this in command prompt or terminal emulator (or any other program like that). And can someone confirm the code is:

su
mount -o remount,rw /system
ln -s /system/modules/bcm4329.ko /system/lib/modules/bcm4329.ko
#Thanks Paragon_X, I forgot to tell you to remount /.
mount -o remount,ro /system

Im using matrix kernel v19 cfs and the latest CM9 v7. Trying to get the wifi working now and its hard.

Heres what i have done using terminal emulator

Typed in "su". Pressed enter. I granted super user permissions.
Typed in "mount -o remount,rw /system" . Pressed enter. Didnt say anything
Typed in "ln -s /system/modules/bcm4329.ko /system/lib/modules/bcm4329.ko". Pressed Enter
It showed up "link failed File exists"
now its changed to "255|[email protected]:/". Before it was "[email protected]:/"
I than typed in "mount -o remount,ro /system"

My wifi still doesnt work
