    Re: Fedora 30 with new kernel 5.1.5.300 can't find RTL8821CE Wi-Fi adapter

    That's due to a kernel change which required a driver update. The latest driver you downloaded does have the fix but dkms is still compiling the old code for the module already installed. Try
    Code:
    cd rtl8821ce
    sudo ./dkms-remove.sh
    Then you can try again
    Code:
    sudo ./dkms-install.sh

    Thank you so much for your kind support.
