How to Enable Wifi on Fedora 23 ARM

Tue Apr 19, 2016 5:13 am

I remix the Fedora 23 ARM system for my Raspberry Pi 3 B as this page(http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Raspberry_Pi) says.

When I start the system, I find my wifi doesn't work, but finally, I solve the problem. Considering the others will also encounter this problem, I post the solution here:

1.Download the driver files from Github.com, the link is https://github.com/RPi-Distro/firmware-nonfree.

Code: Select all

#git clone https://github.com/RPi-Distro/firmware-nonfree.git
After you execute this command, you will download the whole folder of firmware-nonfree, but we just need two files which are brcmfmac43430-sdio.bin and brcmfmac43430-sdio.txt, they are in the directory of firmware-nonfree/brcm/

2.Copy the driver files into /lib/firmware/brcm/

Code: Select all

#cd firmware-nonfree/brcm/
#cp brcmfmac43430-sdio.bin brcmfmac43430-sdio.txt /lib/firmware/brcm/
3.Reboot your Raspberry Pi.

Code: Select all

#reboot
Enjoy!

Now my Raspberry Pi is working fine~

Although I have already installed the driver, and my wifi works fine, but there is still an error in dmesg.

Code: Select all

#dmesg | grep SDIO
[    3.746141] mmc1: new high speed SDIO card at address 0001
[   10.309239] brcmfmac: brcmf_sdio_drivestrengthinit: No SDIO Drive strength init done for chip 43430 rev 1 pmurev 24
