I just installed fedora 26 but wi-fi isn't working. I can't find it in the network settings.

I have mediatek 7630e card.

Already tried to install https://github.com/neurobin/MT7630E but didn't work. when i execute ./install I get this:

[root@localhost MT7630E]# ./install
make -C /lib/modules/4.11.8-300.fc26.x86_64/build M=/home/joaomarques/.local/share/Trash/files/MT7630E-release/MT7630E/rt2x00 modules
make[1]: *** /lib/modules/4.11.8-300.fc26.x86_64/build: No such file or directory.  Stop.
make: *** [Makefile:9: all] Error 2

I'm new to linux. please help.

I'm making some assumptions here, and they might not be correct, but If you have UEFI-native mode (BIOS, but not BIOS) then you will want to check if Secure Boot is enabled. Additionally, consider enabling BIOS compatibility mode (CSM) which by default disables Secure Boot. After you've sorted this matter out, follow the installation section, but your family is RedHat using the dnf package manager.

build-essentials (dnf):

sudo dnf install make automake gcc gcc-c++ kernel-devel kernel-headers

This will install more than you need, but here:

sudo dnf grouplist

sudo dnf groupinstall "C Development Tools and Libraries" "Development Tools"


Quote (github) link above:

Secure Boot

Not being signed, this driver is not expected to work on secure boot.

Important UEFI reading material:

Fedora Project - UEFI

Wikipedia - UEFI
