I'm setting up a Dell M4400 Precision, and on previous installations I've merely installed the Broadcom STA Wireless Driver from the "Additional Drivers" app. However with 11.04, I get this error: Sorry, installation of this driver failed.
Please have a look at the log file for details: /var/log/jockey.log.

Wifi works fine on Windows, and had worked fine in Ubuntu 8.10-10.10. I've done a fair amount of searching and tried quite a few fixes, all of them failed.
EDIT: After uncommenting the blacklist file I got the following errors in the var/log/jockey.log:
