Trying to get qubes going, but I can’t get wifi to work. Have Debian 11 as a template for sys-net
Kernel modules was just bcma which doesn’t work with BCM4352 so i manually transferred broadcom-sta-dkms_18.104.22.1681-17_all.deb (and a ton of it’s dependencies) and installed them all
dpks -i to the template Debian 11 (side not, thought exposure to network drivers should be limited to sys-net, but if i have to install them at Debian template won’t all qubes based on it will be compromised?)
dpks -I broadcom-sta-dkms_22.214.171.1241-17_all.deb

This package provides the source code for the wl kernel modules and makes use of the DKMS build utility to install them for the running kernel. The alternative package broadcom-sta-source can be used instead in case of build problems. . The wireless-tools package is also required in order to make use of these modules. Kernel source or headers are required to compile these modules.
so after installing wifi still is not found

and i’m seeing the following error
(sys-net) dmesg | grep wl
[ 5.161137] wl: loading out-of-tree module taints kernel. [ 5.161164] wl: module license 'MIXED/Proprietary' taints kernel.

kind of makes sense that it’ll be tainting template kernel, so how should this be handled?
