[OPEN] B43 module not loading automatically

Post by skeeter » Sat Nov 03, 2018 1:40 pm

I just installed Arcolinux Mate on a Dell Inspiron 1520 laptop with broadcom B4321. All works great but I have to load B43 module after each reboot. Ran mkinitcpio -v shows possibly missing firmware for b43 module but pacman Qi shows it is installed. I added b43 to the "modules" section of mkinitcpio w/o success. Would it be best to add "modconf" to hooks in mkinitcpio and make a file in /etc/modprobe.d for b43 or is there a better solution? Hopefully, I haven't missed a wiki somewhere with this info. Thanks.

Do you have 2 network cards?
One conflicting with the other?
Blacklisting can help then.
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
But first use the power of the Arch Wiki
use the tutorials on
then use the power of google
and only then use the power of our moderators.
