Wanted to report success, following this procedure:


At the bottom, I see something of a compatibility matrix, but a line
representing my specific setup does not exists.  So I offer the following
data to show that it works in my environment.

[erik at localhost ~]$ uname -r
[erik at localhost ~]$ cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS Linux release 7.1.1503 (Core)
[erik at localhost ~]$ cat /etc/redhat-release

I also wanted to point out, the command provided to extract the TGZ file
downloaded from the Broadcom site is incorrect.  Should be:

tar xvzf /path/to/the/tarball/hybrid-v35_64-nodebug-pcoem-6_30_223_271.tar.gz

The "f" flag should be the last flag in the list.  Got an error when
entered as provided.
