    New to Antix while using MX for several months. The ASUS T100TA is one of the older W8.1 laptops with keyboard docs that got slow with W10. I was able to boot Antix-19.3 right off into a 6 Gb partition, which was great since this tablet/laptop has 32bit efi but 64 bit processor and is quite a pain. For the last couple of hours, the T100TA has been running quite well. Nicely done – my previous attempt with Xubuntu, Lubuntu and linuxium respins gave c-state errors and Antix is a real step up.

    Unfortunately, I cannot get the internal Broadcom 802.11abgn Wireless SDIO adapter (as listed in W10) to work for wireless and have to run from an old Panda wireless adapter. I have been through a lot of forums and tried moving files from the nvram to /lib/firmware/brcm/brcmfmac43340-sdio.txt and tried to load the various on-board linux drivers but no luck.

    Sound does not work either – note that sound does not work in W10 and requires loading the old W8.1 sound drivers. The W10 boot does allow me check for failed hardware, so I’m keeping that until everything in Antix is fixed.

    I thought it would be worth posting here first before I try upgrading the kernel in case the support for this baytrail device was improved. I have seen a lot of the videos as I prepared for the MX install and was choosing between MX and Antix, but I have not found a solution for wifi and sound using the internal components.

    Thanks for all of the effort so far.

    My code output is:

    Is the sound and wifi working with MX? Post the MX inxi?

    The first thing you might want to try is to install a newer kernel.It’s easily done
    control-centre > system > package-installer > kernels
    If sound and wireless work on MX might go with the 4.19-kernel or try the newest 5.8.16

    @seaken64 and @carprea

    Thanks for your responses. I will post the MX work at the MX forums. I do work on the MX machine so I want to finish that deadline before I start mucking with it.

    As for Antix-19.3 on the T100TA “hobby toy” , I will try the newer kernel in a few days if no other insightful forum contributer presents a solution that I missed. I will probably try something smaller than the full install on this dual boot machine in the future.
