Extra details

Welcome to our community.

Well, we don’t host nor develop kernel and/or header packages. But we are already looking for them as they are required for other software title like Wireguard as well.

Thanks. The project looks really nice. It is nice to have something that just works and is not proprietary like the FriendlyCore version.

Does the lack of header packages mean I cannot build the RTL8822BU?

as stated above, we already checking for the availability
