    Timeshift backups to NAS at home and to my laptop drive when on the road

    Cannot get WiFi recognized when installing PopOs 22.04 on 2015 MacBook Pro

    It could look like the driver bcmwl----- is out of sync with the kernel, in which case I will use the laptop tethered to my network switch with an RJE45 and hope that things will improve in the near future. I am certainly not going to buy a wifi repeater and wire the laptop to that one Thx a bnch

    I did sudo apt update && sudo apt install bcmwl-kernel-source, but not the mod probe and reboot. Back to the saltiness and try again. Thanks a lot for your patience with a newbie!

    Cannot get WiFi recognized when installing PopOs 22.04 on 2015 MacBook Pro

    Or, since I plan to take the laptop on to the road on May 23, could that let bcmwl catch up with the current kernel? I am a maths application programmer and know less about linux kernel swapping than colonel Sanders ;) Is downgrading a job for the fainthearted?

However, I have succeeded in installing flavors of Ubuntu and Fedora with proper functioning of all hardware as far as I can see. Also, it looks as if PopOS is drawing from the...

    Cannot get WiFi recognized when installing PopOs 22.04 on 2015 MacBook Pro

    I am a seasoned technical calculations developer with C/C++, Fortran (and C#) on Windows, MacOS and RHEL, but an absolute neophyte when it comes to hardware drivers and linux kernels. I have fallen in love with PopOS installed on virtual computers, and now my MacBook Pro 15in 2015 model is no...
