What chipset is this USB wifi dongle using? Run lsusb to find it out. Looks like your question has been asked and answered here already.

Do you installed "kernel-devel"?


dnf -y install kernel-devel

I am interested in this question; Maybe I can make a rpm with dkms...

Maybe try to find if there is not anyone already built it as a package. Without trying, I have found article, ubuntu only. But when searched for "rtl8192eu fedora", found there is a copr repository for it. It would start with that! There are higher chances its author would maintain it. If you want to learn something about Fedora, you can try instructions from mailing list
