[SOLVED] - Debian liveUSB on asus X205TA : Wifi hw/sw

Postby micka » 2018-01-27 16:26

Hi everybody :)

Want to try Debian 9 liveUSB on an ASUS X205TA.

Created liveUSB with unetbootin and everything OK : Debian boot on the usb and I can choose live at grub menu.

Problem : No wifi card detected.

I read about Debian install on this machine :https://wiki.debian.org/InstallingDebianOn/Asus/X205TA#Debian_9 and try
I add bin firmware and txt file (cf. link above) when Debian is live, but don't know how to tell Debian to "load" that in command line :?

Is it the right way to do that to get wifi on live session ?

Thanks for your time/help.

Nope, unetbootin is an obsolete piece of **** and does _not_ work with Debian ISO images.

It doesn't actually affect your non-free firmware requirements but it will b0rk your install.

Thanks to Wheelerof4te and Head_on_a_Stick for your replies :D

1. Using "image cd including firmware" (nonfree) loads brcmfmac43340-sdio.bin
2. But failed to load brcmfmac43340-sdio.txt (https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=821400
==> To get it works :
1. cp /sys/firmware/efi/efivars/nvram-74b00bd9-805a-4d61-b51f-43268123d113 /lib/firmware/brcm/brcmfmac43340-sdio.txt
2. modprobe -v -r brcmfmac
3. modprobe -v brcmfmac
(un-loading and re-loading the kernel module)


>> Head_on_a_Stick, what do you suggest to replace it ? What is a good way to do that ?

You actually can't "close" the thread only an administrator can do that, what you could do is go back and edit the subject line on the first page and replace "[Newbie]" with "solved" or "[solved]"to indicate you got the answer you needed. That can help others to find it if they have a similar question.
