[solved] no wifi on pavilion Aero 13-be0068nf
« on: 2022/07/02, 10:16:18 »
Hi,

I want to install Siduction on a HP Pavilion  Aero 13-be0068nf, a fairly recent laptop.
I am booting on the wintersky LXQT image and I have no network.
lswh output:

lspci output :


The card works with Opensuse lshw output :


I guess the drivers in Wintersky are too old. Would a more recent build of Siduction solve this problem, and it case it would, where could I find such a build.

Best regards,

Your network hardware would be helpful.
Code: [Select]
inxi -NChances are it's just the driver. Especially for a newer laptop.

If it is indeed just the drivers you could get one of the untested images from https://testbuilds.siduction.org/ they could be young enough.

EDIT:
That said, you don't "really" need network connection for installing. The installer should copy everything from the iso to the disk. After that you could use USB-tethering from an android phone, install a newer kernel + firmware, reboot, set up your wifi and upgrade everything else afterwards.

rtw89_pci was introduced in kernel 5.16, mostly usuable in 5.17+.
Wintersky comes with kernel 5.15, so wifi can't work with that siduction version.

Thanks for the answers.
I have looked at https://testbuilds.siduction.org/lxqt/siduction-farewell-lxqt-amd64-latest.manifest and it has still the linux-image-5.15.6-1-siduction-amd64  kernel.

I have not build a kernel since the beginning of the 2000's, don't know if I could do it myself now with the right choices.

In a few minutes you can get a testbuild with kernel 5.18.8.
And btw, https://testbuilds.siduction.org/lxqt/siduction-wintersky-lxqt-amd64-latest.iso has kernel 5.17.2!

It seems that a test build with 5.18.8-1 suddenly appeared!
What a coincidence!
 Many thanks  ;)

Installed the latest image with kernel 5.18.8-1.
At install time and after first boot, the driver was not installed and I had to modify /etc/modules to get the wifi working.
Thanks for the help.

That the card's driver was not loaded seems like a bug to me, how can I report it ?
