I just installed Odin on an older Windows 8 vintage Dell laptop. I have totally forgotten how to troubleshoot the chipset and get the kernel sources installed correctly. I’ve gotten as far as installing the BCMWL Kernel source package from AppCenter, but I am totally lost.

  • This is solved. I don’t recall how to close it other than this comment, so sorry if it falls outside the usual expectations for that. Commented Aug 11, 2021 at 14:15

Have been struggling with this, too. You need to install Kernel Headers first. See this:


you might need to sudo apt-get install --reinstall bcmwl-kernel-source
