Okay, im a newbie that just started using Linux. I installed fedora and noticed that the wifi is weak. After a little googling i came across Lwfinger's git repo and tried doing what it says.

`git clone http://lwfinger/rtlwifi_new.git

cd rtlwifi_new

git checkout rock.new_btcoex


sudo make install

sudo modprobe -rv rtl8723be

sudo modprobe -v rtl8723be ips=0 ant_sel=0 `

This happens when i get to make. [azeez@dhcppc3 rtlwifinew]$ make make -C /lib/modules/4.8.6-300.fc25.x8664/build M=/home/azeez/rtlwifinew modules make[1]: * /lib/modules/4.8.6-300.fc25.x8664/build: No such file or directory. Stop. Makefile:57: recipe for target 'all' failed make: * [all] Error 2 [azeez@dhcppc3 rtlwifi_new]$

I installed all the development packages too but it still didn't work. What am i doing wrong ?

You forgot installing two basic pakages to make and insall.

GoTo terminal

Sudo dnf install kernel-devel kernel-headers

Goto file manager and check whether the rtlwifi folder is in home directory or if present then follow the procedure it will work now
