I'm a total newb to Linux, and I'm not that computer savvy in the first place. Please forgive me if this question is merely an advertisement for my ignorance.
I managed to get eOS Juno installed on my HP Stream 11, but no wifi. I read in other threads that it's possible Juno's wifi drivers are, uhm, sub-optimal?
I was able to figure out that the laptop has a Realtek
RTL8822BE chipset. It worked fine in the Windows that came installed on the laptop. The Stream's drive isn't big enough for a parallel installation -- I've got to wipe the drive for a Linux installation so recovering from the first installation was pretty time consuming. (Actually I have a related question to that issue - asked separately). I'd like to avoid going through that again.
From where should I obtain the Linux driver for this chipset? Is there a preferred source?
Once I've found it, I download it to a USB drive?
- Then, do the Juno install and run something from the terminal to install the driver?
Thanks in advance for your patience.
