wifi interface on debian
Hello, anyone knows how to get the wlan working?

sudo lshw
    description: Computer
    product: Pine64 RockPro64 v2.1
    serial: e42940d2523ce77b
    width: 64 bits
    capabilities: smp cp15_barrier setend swp tagged_addr_disabled
       description: Ethernet interface
       physical id: 9
       logical name: eth0
       serial: 42:ff:3e:26:3f:3f
       size: 1Gbit/s
       capacity: 1Gbit/s
       capabilities: ethernet physical tp mii 10bt 10bt-fd 100bt 100bt-fd 1000bt-fd autonegotiation
       configuration: autonegotiation=on broadcast=yes driver=st_gmac driverversion=Jan_2016 duplex=full ip= link=yes multicast=yes port=MII speed=1Gbit/s
  1 lo   loopback carrier     unmanaged
  2 eth0 ether    routable    unmanaged
To my surprise I needed to install closed source binaries to get the wifi working. Is this expected?
Please let me know. I thought that open sw was the main selling point of the pine64 products.
