Hi all,
can any one help me, please. I successfully installed Mageia 7.1 on Macbook 4.1 the white one. I am having problems with the b43 firmware for the broadcom boards. I was able to make it work using my telefone as a wifi router and it worked fine for a while. After shutting down and reloading linux Mageia, it seems linux does not recognize these cards any more. As if the computer had no network at all -> LSB network gets stalled upon startup. I typed as root the command ifconfig and it was impossible to kill it (kill -9)
I should mention that grub is unstable also. I tried all possible combinations: refind and the tip given on mounting grubx64.efi on an EFI partition. Each time I reinstall Mageia the grub installer decides some nuts place to put the grub initializer.
Thanks,
Daniel

Please only one problem per thread. For the grub issue, please create a separate topic.

For your wireless issue, please post the output of the following commands

Code: Select all
lspcidrake -v | grep -i -e net -e wireless -e wifi
ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep -ie net -e wpa
rpm -qa|grep -iE "b43|firmware"
urpmq --list-media active --list-url


and, as root:
Code: Select all
ifconfig -a
rfkill list all
systemctl status network.service -al -n25
journalctl -ab | grep -iE "fw|firmware|iwl|wifi|wire|80211"
Cauldron is not for the faint of heart!
Caution: Hot, bubbling magic inside. May explode or cook your kittens!

Between first message yesterday and this one I updated all outdated Mageia packages. Sorry about that, I should have updated before sending first message. Now with this above settings drakconnect gave message that dkms-broadcom-wl package should be installed

Yes, you should try again after installing dkms-broadcom-wl and rebooting. Then try to setup your wireless connection via drakconnect: https://doc.mageia.org/mcc/7/en/content ... rakconnect

Hi,
thanks again for your help Doktor. According to urpmi dkms-broadcom-wl package is already installed. After rebooting again, still drakconnect gave the message that it is not possible to install dkms-broadcom-wl

You should try to blacklist the ssb module, as root via

Code: Select all
echo "blacklist ssb" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-mga


This is also described at e.g. http://linuxwireless.sipsolutions.net/e ... en_drivers

blacklisting ssb and following
This is also described at e.g. http://linuxwireless.sipsolutions.net/e ... en_drivers

unloaded all drivers and reloaded them. After rebooting still it says is connected but google takes about 10 min to load (partial load only)
It occurred to me follwing http://linuxwireless.sipsolutions.net/e ... en_drivers should specific driver between b43 or wl be chosen? Also brcmsmac driver is not present in this case.

Yes, either the free b43 driver, or the proprietary wl. Apart from that, I don't understand what you're trying to ask.

Can you please provide the output as root from

wireless internet is so slow that is fair to say it is not working. I'm using now cable ethernet to answer you for example

From what I can see, only the wl driver is loaded, ssb or b43 are not present.

hi, thanks again Doktor. Using my mobile as wifi rooter it was possible to normally navigate in the internet ping machines etc. While using the telephone wireless router (from the wall) internet didn't really work at all. It happened again, I ran out of battery so Macbook just shut down. After powering linux didn't reload well again, and now situation returned to the start of this post
Hi all,
can any one help me, please. I successfully installed Mageia 7.1 on Macbook 4.1 the white one. I am having problems with the b43 firmware for the broadcom boards. I was able to make it work using my telefone as a wifi router and it worked fine for a while. After shutting down and reloading linux Mageia, it seems linux does not recognize these cards any more. As if the computer had no network at all -> LSB network gets stalled upon startup. I typed as root the command ifconfig and it was impossible to kill it (kill -9)

unrecognizing any network card, getting stuck. Should I reinstall Mageia formatting the whole disk again?

You can certainly try. But if that issue repeats, it would probably be helpful if you would have somebody that can help you with this,
as this is probably pretty difficult to do and explain remotely. FWIW, https://wiki.mageia.org/en/Setup_wireless_networking may provide some hints.

cool, thanks again. yes this issue repeats. For the moment it was not necessary to reinstall mageia I had to blacklist wl module and everything else seems to be working except wireless. I have a friend that can help me, and if we figure out how to do this I'll post here.
