Wifi / Bluetooth Board Update
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?
Does this make sense? Still cannot activate the wlan0.

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.
