i understand that. that's why i decided to kill a few hours pulling from the git. but it doesn't tell you how to stack, mix or match the parts. is there a primer, some guide somewhere, besides the wiki that doesn't tell me how to import the files?
i am not working mint. i am working libre, as i have for the last few weeks. i had a sample script, i wanted to know if they were similar commands
i have a crazy question, i am at start compiling, followed the instructions, maybe i missed something.
where do I put the files that i need to be compiled? At what point do I tell the machine what to put in the recipe ?
and it just sort of showed up. cannot get iw anything its not fully activated
here is the script they say to use to fix the kernal. i did not need to use it in mint.
- mkdir ~/Downloads/kernel\ 4.1/
- cd ~/Downloads/kernel\ 4.1/
- sudo wget kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.1.1-unstable/linux-headers-4.1.1-040101-generic_4.1.1-040101.201507030635_amd64.deb
- wget kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.1.1-unstable/linux-headers-4.1.1-040101_4.1.1-040101.201507030635_all.deb
- wget kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.1.1-unstable/linux-image-4.1.1-040101-generic_4.1.1-040101.201507030635_amd64.deb
- sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-4.1*.deb linux-image-4.1*.deb
is this right way to do this?
ive been studying that. i have an i5 setup with ubuntu, but i think i like linux mint better. i cannot figure out how to introduce the parts of the build.
i dont suppose i will be able to use make and makefile to add the the pieces?
i am on the linux mint install, using the wifi. i cannot figure it out. but i will post any logs you need to compare them and figure out whats wrong.
this log is dmsg from linux mint with wi fi working
i do not know what to type to get the system log from mint
dropped file into update directory via windows smb.
it didnt see it. i dont see the txt file in /usr/lib/firmware/brcm it has brcmfmac43241b4-sdio.bin but not brcmfmac43241b4-sdio.txt
I used the instructions from the link below and had success installing to linux mint . it needs all 3 files that i have uploaded to dropbox above.
these are the steps i used to make it work in linux mint
copied all three files to /usr/lib/firmware/brcm
and it worked
do you need me to paste anything? lspci, dmesg, etc?
kodi log VKTG
I just understood your last comment.
i am putting it up right now. the one that works best is the one used on mint. in ubuntu not as well. I didnt install the ubuntu, it came to me that way.
I have installed the driver to mint several, each time better than the last.
here is the txt file that works best
and to driver work, these other files must be in the directory /usr/lib/firmware/brcm/
those files are here
what command do i use to show this information? path of my files?
here is my path
is this correct?
thanks for your help. i cannot get the file installed. i create the directories /firmware and /firmware/brcm and drop the file in the folder via windows smb, but it never uploads the file.
I have had success installing the broadcom drivers to Mint linux kernel version 4.8.0-53-generic.
the installation was performed using the guide shown at the link i have posted below. I DID NOT compile the kernel, it worked after i copied 3 files to /lib/firmware/brcm directory. and ran modprobe to blacklist brcmfmac. i dont have bluetooth, but that is not important (to me at least).
but this is not my goal, my goal being LibreELEC installed with wireless capability.
I have tried to adding the drivers to LibreELEC , copying the path specified but no changes happen. its the same, no change at all except i have created two new directories. /storage/.config/firmware/brcm.
the driver works well, i wont know until i test it further.
i am going to post lsmod and dmesg and paste the links here. i know this can work, i think it would be be done if drop the files into the /firmware/brcm directory. please help me complete this. its kicking my ass. believe me, i appreciate your help.
JOdi this is dmesg
cjAX this lspci -nn
UfTT this is lsmod
as of this writing i have stopped at modprobe step in the instruction. i going to see if i can get the bluetooth working.
kind of nervous about messing with it.
CORRECTION: the file named brcmfmac43241b4-sdio.txt from the ask ubuntu site does run as well as this one, that found that is written for an android-x86 . site below
It doesnt seem to cooperate with the device. after i get back i will re start with a fresh install and i will layout a log of steps as i go .
do i need to create those directories?
