Hi, I’m completely new on Manjaro KDE.
I have a problem with network connections when first time replacing my macOS (MacBook Air Early 2015) with Manjaro 21.0.7.
When I go to the network settings, it shows nothing (No available connections). I tried to reboot tge laptop, but still not working. I’m really confused right now, I couldn’t connect to the internet.
Some commands I have tested:
mhwd: it only shows video-linux, video-modesetting, and video-vesa. Nothing related to wifi
inxi -n: Broadcom BCM4360 802.11ac
0: hci0: Bluetooth
Soft Blocked: no
Hard Blocked: no
sudo pacman -S linux510-headers:
error: target not found: linux510-headers
Can anyone solve this problem? Thanks!
This forum features a search function, don’t be afraid to use it.
Broadcom BCM4360 had some hits, these look promising:
sudo mhwd -i pci network-broadcom-wl
and reboot. It should work then.
I had this problem for a long time and found a solution. The problem is with me was that, by default, Linux uses the BCMA driver. Even if you install the broadcom-wl driver, it doesn’t use it by default. Therefore you need to do the following:
Install the correct broadcom-wl driver. broadcom-wl-dkms did not work for me but you could try it. broadcom-wl is kernel dependent so make sure you install the correct one.
Blacklist the BCMA driver in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf a…
This command result in error: script failed!
database file for ‘core’, ‘extra’, ‘community’, and ‘multilib’ does not exist.
This command also didn’t work for me, resulting in:
error: target not found: broadcom-wl
Fully update your system beforehand:
$ sudo pacman -Syu
edit: you need to connect to the internet by some other means (tethering a mobile device or use ethernet connection).
error: failed to update core (unable to lock database)
error: failed to update extra (unable to lock database)
error: failed to update community (unable to lock database)
error: failed to update multilib (unable to lock database)
error: failed to synchronize all databases
I’ve also tried to remove
/var/lib/pacman/db.lck, but still not working
Do you have any network connectivity? The thing with these type of things is that you need some other network connection to solve your main network connection.
Hmm, are you sure?
$ ls -l /var/lib/pacman/
this result in:
drwxr-xr-x 1 root root 260 Jul 21 08:18 local
drwxr-xr-x 1 root root 60 Jul 21 08:18 sync
I don’t have any ethernet connection, only wifi.
My mobile tethering won’t show up on the network connections.
If your WiFi chip has no available driver, you can’t connect to any WiFi network.
In order to install the driver, it must first be downloaded, so you must have some kind of internet connectivity to receive the files.
okay then, thanks for your info
If you have mobile, you could use USB tethering. Unfortunately, I have never done it, so I can only give search suggestions.
I’ve tried it and it works well
@freggel.doe , sorry for my stupidity hehe. I’ve tried
sudo pacman -Syyu using the USB tethering, and it works
Thanks for helping!
