boot issues wifi error ASUS x205ta

Post by oldchan » Fri Jun 07, 2019 4:00 pm

Hi, new MX Linux user here, ive used linux a few times over the years but i'm not sure how to fix this problem. everything works bluetooth works, wifi works the only issue is on boot up it posts an error stating its failing to load the broadcom firmware. obviously since everything works and since on the line prior it loads the firmware properly im assuming its just a second attempt to load the driver that is already loaded and failing. this occured after i was fooling around with either the linux mx boot options or it might have occured when i was running updates not sure im losing my mind in my old age :confused: anyway this is the print out. if it is just a secondary attempt at loading the driver it seems like it would be an easy fix just remove the offending line of code i just don't know which file these boot up commands are stored in. thanks in advance.

From what the Google turns up for me, that missing firmware is for the Bluetooth part of the chip, and not the wi-fi.
