Just installed Fedora 34 on my MacBook Pro and went ahead, like usual, and installed rpmfusion free & nonfree and did the old $ sudo dnf install broadcom-wl… but for some reason it didn’t do the trick to get the WiFi working.
Has anyone gotten their broadcom card running on fedora 34 yet?
No experience with broadcom-wl on MacBook, but a quick search presented a lot of similar questions, one of which is:
Hi. Got working WiFi on MacBookPro10,2 with Fedora WS 34 and with Fedora Silverblue 34. Had to enable RPMFussion free and non-free, then install akmod and broadcom-wl. And then rebooted couple of times before WiFi started working.
Interesting. I’ll install 34 again and give your solution a go
I managed, after huge headaches, to get it the WiFi working. And as always the solution wasn’t that hard, just hard to find
Get internet access, I got it through bluetooth tethering.
$ sudo dnf install akmod-wl
“kernel-devel” is needed but building wl fails with the preinstalled package.
$ sudo dnf install buildsys-build-rpmfusion-kerneldevpkgs-current
$ sudo akmods --force --kernel ‘uname -r’ --akmod wl
$ sudo reboot
