Topic: Updating / patching kernel to work around wifi issue?
I'm setting up Hyperbola on a laptop with an Intel 8260 (rev 3a) wireless card, and there seems to be an issue getting the device firmware to work.
Symptoms (dmesg output, etc) are almost exactly the same as in this bug:
I'm wondering if there's some way to update / patch my kernel to apply just this fix. I've never compiled a kernel before, but using a wifi dongle until the lts maintainers get around to merging this fix sounds like a pain.
Alternately, is there some way to add a repository from Parabola to get just the updated kernel package? I actually tried installing Parabola first, but ran into Xorg dependency hell trying to set it up with openrc.
Aprpeciate any advice or pointers you could provide!
