I just installed Fedora Workstation 25 on a Lenovo V510 laptop, updated kernel to

uname -r

I can not get the wifi Adapter to work

lspci | grep -i wireless
03:00.0 Network controller: Qualcomm Atheros QCA9377 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter (rev 31)

I tried to put the files of the firmware and the solution provided by the backport. Neither work.

For the second, I'm getting a compilation error each time.

# make    
make[5]: « conf » is up to date.
boolean symbol HWMON tested for 'm'? test forced to 'n'

# configuration written to .config

 #define IS_BUILTIN(option) config_enabled(option)

Installing these didn't help.

dnf install git cmake rpm-build gcc-c++ libstdc++-devel gtk2-devel wxGTK-devel mesa-libGLU-devel mesa-libGL-devel gettext bzip2-devel portaudio-devel

Is that revision of the adapter supported and how can I get it to work ? Thank you

Mate, do you have decision for this problem, because I have the same laptop and same problem too. I try everything, but I'm new with Linux and can't start this wifi driver....

lspci -nnv

02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Qualcomm Atheros Device [168c:0042] (rev 30)
    Subsystem: Foxconn International, Inc. Device [105b:e09a]

This is working OOFB in F25/26. But doesn't display the right speed in network manager, though. The newest firmware is in Fedora (24-27), but did work with the aged one.

just do:

dnf install linux-firmware

will install linux-firmware-20170622


ls -l /lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA9377/hw1.0/


P.S. is your wifi card enabled in your BIOS, too ?

That didn't help. I have a dual boot system and the card is working fine on the second system (Windows 10). I also tried the last version of Kali on a live usb and the WiFi worked smoothly (I think I'll wait for the 07/11)
