Is the RTL8812AU chipset supported on Fedora 30?

Out of the box? If not, how to install the driver?

Hardware is supported or not supported by the linux kernel that a distribution uses. Some distributions like ubuntu are really rarley updating the linux kernel. In fedora the linux kernel is updated verry regularly, thus more hardware is supported.
You can try a bootable usbstick to check if all of your hardware is supported to your liking.
Further information to your chipset can you find in the gentoo wiki.

It has to be manually installed, below is the information for the driver I used.

I had to manually install dkms, git and kernel-devel. (I’m on F30 XFCE)

git clone -b v5.3.4
cd rtl*
sudo ./

Would you have the time to write a “howto” post on this please?
