I am fedora Mate-Compiz spin maintainer and i'd like to test the
spin with fedora arm image on RockPro64 from https://www.pine64.org/rockpro64/
There is an extra wifi/bt modul
Do you know if this modul is supported by fedora ARM kernel?
It's the AP6256 802.11ac/a/b/g/n WiFi + Bluetooth5.0 Combo Sip Module (WiFi 5) from
The short answer is it's a kernel/firmware issue and no.
The long answer is there's a number of parts to supporting this device:
1) Is the firmware upstream for this part, I'm not sure if it's a
Broadcom or Cyprus derived part. We've had issues with the upstream
firmware for these devices being too old, I am working with vendors to
get this resolved.
2) Is the NVRAM available and upstream
3) Is the appropriate DT pieces upstream, does it need a DT overlay to
be supportable being an optional add-on part
At the moment I don't know the answer to the above, I believe it's the
same WiFi as on the Pinebook Pro and for that device it's one of the
bits on my to-do list to investigate.
