I just installed a fresh Ubuntu 14.04 TLS installation on my Mac using rEFInd since my last installation did not work. When I install Ubuntu, the wireless does not work. But installing the bcm43xx drivers causes my screen to constant flicker.
I think I really have the wrong drivers. This is the result after executing lspci:
ricardo@ubuntu:~$ lspci -vvnn | grep 14e4 03:00.0 Ethernet controller : Broadcom Corporation Device [14e4:16a3] (rev10) Subsystem: Broadcom Corporation Device [14e4:16b4] 03:00.1 SD Host controller : Broadcom Corporation BCM57765/57785 SDXC/MMC Card Reader [14e4:16bc] (rev 10) (prog-if 01) Subsystem: Broadcom Corporation Device [14e4:96bc] 04:00.0 Network controller : Broadcom Corporation BCM4331 802.11a/b/g/n [14e4:4331] (rev 02)
Could somebody advice me in my quest to get my wireless working without my screen to flicker?
EDIT: I did some things since my post. A quick coverage:
- I followed the guide earlier in my post resulting in a working wireless but with flickering screen.
Then I did
- Opening Additional Drivers and installed the latest (NVIDIA GK107M) [650M Mac Edition]
- Also installed the suggested Broadcom drivers.
It seem to work now, but sometimes I get a panic at boot resulting in rebooting twice before I can re-use Ubuntu. Small issue left apart from the panics: I only can set the resolution 2880 x 1800. Anyway to get smaller resolutions?
