Hi Ben,

thank you for your fast answer and the very professional completion of my 

Finally i found the mistake, i installed a 64bit kernel on a 32 bit OS.

Best regards

I had a quick look at the source for the driver included in the kernel, and it 
does not appear to support 32-bit utilities working with a 64- bit kernel.

I eventually found the out-of-tree version of the driver (on Broadcom's web 
site), and that doesn't support any kernel version beyond Linux 2.6.37.  So I 
assume you weren't using this.

Did you switch from a 32-bit to a 64-bit kernel package?
