so if you do lsmod do you see brcrmfmac loaded? I was actually misrembering , the only firmware I needed to find was BCM4345CS.hcd for the bluetooth support.

I used "$ sudo rpm --install brcm-pinebookpro-0.0-1.noarch.rpm"

I even copied (cp -r option) all the firmware files from the working Manjaro Plasma installed on the eMMC to the Fedora 36 Workstation image.

lsmod doesn't list brcmfmac nor any brcm module.

I was going to remove all the existing firmware files and re-copy the firmware files again.

so what happens if you do modprobe brcmfmac?

Actually, it is working now.  I cleared out all the firmware files and copied over the Manjaro Plasma ones.  And upon booting it up Wifi started working.

That's good! How's performance on emmc?

Not too bad.  I haven't used the laptop much.  I feel like the slowness really is in the booting and not the eMMC speed.   

Also, I suspect that the 4GB of RAM is probably causing more of the sluggishness that I experience when in GNOME3 shell.
