    1. Make sure you have /lib/firmware/brcm/brcmfmac43241b4-sdio.bin
    2. If not already mounted : mount -t efivarfs none /sys/firmware/efi/efivars
    3. cat /sys/firmware/efi/efivars/nvram-74b00bd9-805a-4d61-b51f-43268123d113 > /lib/firmware/brcm/brcmfmac43241b4-sdio.txt
    4. modprobe -r brcmfmac && modprobe brcmfmac
    EDIT REMOVED QUOTES

    Cleve, This saves to root terminal. I type su and password (root).

    Then use up arrow to find line 2 [Enter]
    Up arrow to line 3 [Enter]
    Up arrow line 4 [Enter]

    In ceni it is mostly enter for each page.....except for password and the next page "auto". My terminal is saving to LiveUSB.

    Using icewm desktop....wireless appears below Conky.

    This is all antiX17 stuff relating to brcmfmac (wireless card) No sign of bluetooth yet. Meh!

    Now on to SOUND and function keys.

    See ya.

    Sent from liveUSB via E3 #31 the one with linux installed using broadcom and S3 as hotspot.

    The quote signs are messing you up in the first part. Edit done just now.

    Recommend re-boot.

    Plus I am on antiX 17.
    On MX-16 check for line one. Using file manager.
    Line 2 is all one line.

    EDIT CHECK MY LAST POST IN MX FORUM. THAT WAS CUT AND PASTE FROM TERMINAL. I MEANT TO UPLOAD A SHOT OF MY TERMINAL....I KNOW I TOOK A SCREENSHOT.

    On 3 different live usb's with the 3E all 64 bit:
    antiX 16 the live passwords default to the demo & root, not persistent
    antiX 17 no keyboard, touch screen works
    Mx 16.1 the live passwords default to the demo & root, not persistent
    Jeff, are you using 32 bit?
    demo@mx1:~
    $ sudo su
    root@mx1:/home/demo# mount -t efivarfs none /sys/firmware/efi/efivars
    mount: mount point /sys/firmware/efi/efivars does not exist

    Logically then since it is a computer it does not exist.

    Sorry for your troubles.

    Yes sir, 32 bit antiX 17. I just cloned a USB stick using Live-USB Maker GUI. Had to type the 3 Broadcom lines in the first time on Cleve's Clone. Keyboard came up and wireless works.

    In terminal ...see above...type su at $. Then password root. (sudo su not necessary on antiX.

    Been playing with the tab key...it helps on long winded commands.

    BTW sometimes I need to boot three times to get a keyboard... Hold orange button down for 14 seconds to shut down... also I pause at grub for a few seconds.

    Dinner. :)

    No trouble, just reporting.
    The little nano WiFi works great, however as you know takes up real estate i.e. 3m0 USB port.
    I'm getting comfortable using a new yet similar system.
    I believe antiX 17 uses a 4.1 kernal as is quite fast.
    Can't wait to try on the 29 and 30 models.
    Videos on forums very helpful.
    Also, antiX is not for the beginner.
    Suggest MxLunux 16.1 for beginners... currently on my daily driver.

    I was concerned about the menu for a bit but after learning a few short-cuts I like it. (like super-key enter launches terminal)

    Agreeing it's not for the terminal haters. Dolphin Oracle's videos are a great resource.

    I spent last evening learning a little about UEFI shell. Nothing conclusive yet but a third party boot loader may be necessary. EDIT 32-BIT IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH ESP, ELILO OR STUB ARE OPTIONS. (from quick search on antiX forum) The way I understand it.:confused:

    Downloaded an all in one Windows loader.
    windows 7/8.1/10
    32 and 64 bit.
    UEFI and BIOS dual boot. All in one usb stick.
    I tried Rufus many different ways and I could not get it to boot on both machines.

    I then used Rmprepusb. Fat32 with a WinPE bootloader--BAM, It boots both machines.
    Pretty sure Rufus uses a Grub bootloader of some kind.
    It must cause an issue.
    The UEFI test machine was the 3E.
