I had a bit of trouble with the akmod-wl package.
Fedora got a newer Kernel but the kmod-wl package is still not available, so I decided to
use akmod-wl, which worked great in the past. I ran "akmods --force" but got an
error that some modules(?) (I sadly forget to write down the exact error message).
After looking into it I just didn't had kernel-devel installed.
Now everything works. But two things are bothering me, shouldn't the akmod package
pull in the kernel-devel automatically? Since it seems to be pretty Important. Also akmod
is still using the yum command for installing:
"Yum command has been deprecated, redirecting to '/usr/bin/dnf -y install
Maybe that should be changed to dnf, since it is the "standard" now.

This comes up quite often, long story short it can't require kernel-devel
because it's also designed to work with custom or vanilla kernels, so it
has a special require, unfortunately it's currently pulling in
kernel-debug-devel instead, which is a bug on the Fedora side but they
don't seem particularly interested in fixing it. There's some proposed
changes to fix that both for kernel-devel and dnf/yum but I just got home
after a 10 hour drive from vacation so there's not a fix coming until I
have a chance to dig into it a bit more. There's a yum->dnf compat package
you can install that will symbolically link /usr/bin/yum to /usr/bin/dnf
but the name escapes me at the moment.
