So, I’ve heard a lot of people stating the Bluetooth doesn’t work (or is non-free) for the Librem line.
I’m find utilizing an USB adapter but, wanted to ask some questions.
Any idea when this will be fixed?
People have been stating this for a while now. Purism’s official response seems to be that they “plan” to get free software firmware. But, this doesn’t appear to be happening.
Anybody know something I don’t?
Is it possible to use a free’d wireless card?
I know many other users utilize a more free software friendly card like the N450 Dual Band Wireless miniPCIe Card sold by Technoethical. Despite it not supporting Bluetooth, is it possible for users to swap the default card for this one?
How easy is it to remove?
Personally, if the card requires non-free software then I don’t want the card.
I know users can buy “air gaped” machines but, how can you remove the card altogether?
I didn’t see it in the wiki: https://wiki.puri.sm/hw/l13/v3
My main fear is that an OS will assume I want the non-free drivers, when I can just use a USB adapter.
Is it a Bluetooth and WIFI in one Card?
Basically, do I need to remove the WIFI to also remove the Bluetooth?
