Broadcom nic and Nvidia Driver together

Postby gutsanglory » 2020-02-08 21:38

Hi all,
I love Debian, and have installed it many times on random hardware. I'm still quite the nube, but can move around the system pretty smoothly. I have ran into a problem when trying to load Buster on an older laptop of mine, Dell Latitude E6420. It seems that i can load the Broadcom wireless without too much issue, but when I try to also load the Nvidia driver, it kills the Broadcom connectivity.
I'm loading the system using image:
debian-live-10.2.0-amd64-kde+nonfree.iso
System loads fine and everything comes up, except Nvidia drivers, Broadcom wireless, and the camera.
I'm loading the broadcom driver using the Debian wiki:
https://wiki.debian.org/wl
and the Nvidia driver using the Debian wiki as well:
https://wiki.debian.org/NvidiaGraphicsD ... cy_GPUs.29
Version 390.116 (legacy GPUs)
Either will work, but trying to get them to work together is where/when I'm having the trouble, and the Wireless will die. I tried loading the Video first and then the wireless. Then the reverse, but still the result is wireless will die with either installed first.
Another installation note, the system does recognize and ask for missing firmware files, which i guess it cant find on the nonfree iso version im using.
Missing firmware files:
b43/ucode30_mimo.fw
b43-open/ucode30_mimo.fw
Detected NVIDIA GPUs:

^ What does this mean, exactly? Please post actual command output.

And why don't you just use nouveau?

Hi,
Thanks for the reply.
Once the nvidia driver is loaded, the wireless will no longer show under the network, hence no wireless networks are able to be found.
I have already reloaded and have not installed the nvidia, but will continue to use nouveau unless someone can provide solution to the conflict of these two drivers.

Thx,

For example:
Code: Select all
ip a
ip r
lspci -k | grep -A2 'Broadcom\|VGA'
