Hello! This is my first post. I finally got around to installing Linux on my MacBook Pro, late 2013 model. While researching the project I came across this article which fired my curiosity to try NixOS. Having installed Arch a few times, I was prepared for a struggle. But Nix has shut me down before I could get started.
I upgraded macOS to the latest version, Mojave 10.14. Shrunk the Macintosh SSD partition and installed Linux Mint. So far, so good. They both boot and run ok. Only issue is, GRUB won’t boot macOS.
lsblk -f does not display any information about the mac partition. The Mojave upgrade converted it to APFS (Apple File System) and now Linux has no drivers to read it.
But back to Nix, my problem is I’m unable to connect to my home wi-fi during the install. Nix can’t find my wireless hardware.
ip a only lists a loopback device. Other networking tools, such as iw are not included in the iso. So Nix is a no-go. Any suggestions are appreciated!
