Wifi / Bluetooth Board Update
#1
OS is Fedora 5.7.8-200.fc32.aarch64

I have been content to use Ethernet Networking since acquiring the Pine64. This works well. However I would like to use the cable for another project and wish to activate the Wifi board. I have googled and searched the docs for a way to do this in Fedora. Some help from the Pine64 IRC suggested the wifi module and firmware was needed. This is a very new kernel but despite a few posts that the firmware was to be integrated  - it does not seem to be the case. Can anyone suggest how to go about this in Fedora?

Can anyone point me in the right direction to get a driver for an rpm based distro? I can do some basic hacking, but need some direction. I can get some info from Armbian if necessary. But trying to decipher the variations in the device tree is difficult for me. A lot of the pine64 users seem to be forced to use a Debian based distro which limits us somewhat. Despite a lot of hackers moving to the PBPro and Pine Phone, the Pine64 can do more if it is exposed to a wider audience.
