Hi! Since we have this wonderful time of social distancing and isolation and I work in show biz as a tech I have some spare time and picked up an project which I was postponing since 2016. I installed (clean - drive format and no more old macOS X) Manjaro xfce on my 2008 macbook white (4.1). Live version from usb have no issues to connect to wireless what so ever. After installation I am unable to detect my wifi and bluetooth. I have no means to connect this laptop to internet. I can only move files from other machines with and usb stick. How I can repair this problem? All tutorials that I have found are talking about some kind of connection to the network, either via usb dongle or tethering. I do not have any dongles and tethering will not work since I do not have working bluetooth on that particular computer.
I can't use wired connection. I do not have any access to the router. Live manjaro from usb have everything - I could choose and connect to a wifi.
I installed no-free drivers upon installation (first time I had only free - did not work)
I found that: Archwiki. Inside is written that it may be a problem with an old and not supported driver. I have kernel 5.4.23-1 so I should have (according to the article) "broadcom-wl-dkms" package and I have "broadcom-wl". On the dkms linked page is a link for drivers (not working) so I figured out it may be this broadcom-wl-dkms 188.8.131.521
I do not know if there is a ver. 271-20 since the file was updated in 2015.
