I've just installed it on my laptop. My wireless (Broadcom 1390 WLAN Mini-pci card) doesn't work, even though it's on the driver list during the installation.


The 1390 is supported natively by the bcm43xx driver, I'm using one myself. It will be auto-detected by the kernel but you'll need to perform the one-time step of extracting the firmware files from the Windows driver. The provided fw-cutter tool will do this automatically, but openSUSE (and the other distributions) are unable to legally distribute the broadcom firmware, which would admittedly make things even easier.
