The protocol at http://elrepo.org/tiki/wl-kmod builds kmod-wl, not wl-kmod. The wl-kmod rpm is the no source rpm name.

Look in /home/hirailyas/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/ and see if there is a kmod-wl binary rpm there.


Six or seven lines from the end of the build you should see a line like:

Code: Select all

 Wrote: /home/<user>/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/kmod-wl-<version>.x86_64.rpm
That is the rpm you need to install.
