    This I probably a long shot, but thought I'd ask anyway.

    I've been looking for ways to repurpose an late 2010 MBA and thought I'd have a play around with some open source stuff. I've managed to get it to dual boot using rEFInd and successfully installed elementaryOS on a partition, which actually works really well.

    I wanted to try running a BSD option too, so tried TrueOS, which I've installed successfully into another partition and can boot either macOS, eOS or TrueOS.

    TrueOS isn't really that useful though as it doesn't detect the Airport card so I don't have any wireless access. Anyone attempted this and managed to get network connectivity?

    In TrueOS Community, see Broadcom BCM4312 and the like under Mac Mini WiFi not working – the links to topics in The FreeBSD Forums, my August 2016 post in particular.
