Dear maintainer,

I did a fresh installation for a Thinkpad E480 using debian unoficial image that includes firmware:


linagora@e480-fp:~$ lspci | grep -i wifi
05:00.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8822BE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WiFi adapter

linagora@e480-fp:~$ cat /etc/os-release
PRETTY_NAME="Debian GNU/Linux bullseye/sid"
NAME="Debian GNU/Linux"

The wi-fi does not work in the debian-installer neither in my fresh installation. After to waste some time googling I finally found this bug and I fixed the problem following the workaround proposed by dlf29 <> (creating a hard link because the path got changed).

Reading many post I relized the kernel mainstream maintainers changed the hierarchy and as far as a I can see in testing we have only 5.6 and 5.6 kernels (new hierarchy):

linagora@e480-fp:~$ apt search linux-image | grep ^linux-image | egrep -v '5.4|5.6'

WARNING: apt does not have a stable CLI interface. Use with caution in scripts.


Could you please change the path and names in order to fix this issue.
