I experienced kernel panics immediately after upgrading to 3.18.2-2 from 3.17.6.1. Currently on the latter. Mid-2010 Macbook Pro.

edit: Forgot to add that I noticed the following. After I started X it took no more that 10 sec for the panic to occur. If I stayed on the tty, using wifi, everything went smoothly, until I run any pacman command, which again resulted in a panic.

Re: [SOLVED] broadcom-wl* kernel 3.18 issues thread

broadcom chip : BCM43228 802.11a/b/g/n

under 3.18 kernel ck and stock. kernel panic when i start gnome not at boot to console.

currently using 3.16 kernel. because of intel issues with 3.17 kernels.

b43 seemed to work but did not test extensively, i have ivybridge celeron with small battery and the power saving in wl module is important to me as well as better performance.

waiting/hoping for a fix for 3.18 kernels.

Like glenb77, I also use GNOME and gdm. Not sure if that makes a difference, just adding a data point.

Re: [SOLVED] broadcom-wl* kernel 3.18 issues thread

Hello,

I also have issues with broadcom-wl and 3.18.2-2 ARCH kernel.

I am able to connect to my network (802.11g, WPA2), but any TCP traffic immediately crashes the kernel.

However, basic ping works, and UDP traffic seems to work as well, e.g. "ping www.google.com" results in normal operation - address is resolved (so UDP works) and ICMP echo messages are sent and received correctly, whereas "wget www.google.com" immediately crashes the system.

The procedure above was performed in the text mode (without X running). I am able to reproduce this behavior every time.

I may be wrong, but for me this doesn't seem to be a kernel issue, since using the open-source "b43" driver or wired ethernet does not crash the system.

My PC is a Dell Latitude E6320 with Core i5 2520, embedded Intel HD gfx, 4GB of RAM and BCM 43228 WLAN card (PCI ID 14e4:4359) running updated Arch Linux (stock repo kernel 3.18.2-2 ARCH and aur/broadcom-wl driver package)

I dunno if it helps, but I've already sent an email to Broadcom about this issue.

Cheers,
Cristos

@ptr: After downgrading both linux and linux-headers to 3.17.6-1 followed by reinstalling aur/broadcom-wl 6.30.223.248-4 everything works again, e.g.:

Re: [SOLVED] broadcom-wl* kernel 3.18 issues thread

After the upgrade to the latest kernel 3.18.2 my macbook air (5.1) has become useless.

It boots up but:

1) keyboard does not work

2) mouse does not work

3) wireless does not work

4) usb ethernet does not work

5) xorg does not work

I'm basically locked out!

How can I get this fixed?

Chrooting?

All my work is on my mac, yes I have backups but all programs, virtual machines everything is on it.

Arch Linux is a very good distribution but this should never happen, I mean to have an entire machine f. up because of a "pacman -Suy".

I promised myself so many times not to upgrade the packages when there are big changes in the repos... but I did it again.

It's also installed on my desktop where I run VMware... the number of times VMware stopped working because of broken updates is nearly countless.


Anyway,

how can I recover the macbook air now?

Thanks.

You're on a Linux distribution that is a rolling release. This is a risk you take. Arch is VERY stable for what it is, but there are occasional problems. (I can only think of 2 major issues in the past 6 years I've used it.)

But if you need as guranteed stable of Linux you can get, Arch may not be a good choice for you.

As for fixing it, can't you boot from a live USB, chroot and just downgrade the kernel?

Providing more details than just "does not work" is a pretty good first stop. Opening a new thread for separate issues is another.
Based on the extremely little information you've provided, all I can suggest is "is the battery charged?".

Again, provide details of what's not working, and some details. Opening a new thread for separete issues is recomended.

There have been no big changes in the repos in a long time. How long ago was your last update?

Re: [SOLVED] broadcom-wl* kernel 3.18 issues thread

Guys,

I see two other people with the same card as I have, BCM4312; they both get kernel panics, but for me it kinda works. If we could find what is different in our Arch installations, then it could be a solution for others in this thread. Feel free to ask me questions.

I have

core/linux 3.18.2-2 (base)
local/broadcom-wl-dkms 6.30.223.248-4

My kernel is

Linux hostname 3.18.2-2-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri Jan 9 07:37:51 CET 2015 x86_64 GNU/Linux

The device is

  • I have WIRELESS_REGDOM="LV" enabled in /etc/conf.d/wireless-regdom

  • I use the 802.11g (2.4 GHz) mode with channel 1

  • I have

Based on the extremely little information you've provided, all I can suggest is "is the battery charged?".

I actually would like to provide more details but I cannot interact with the machine.

The keyboard is not responding; even the back-light does not turn on anymore which means that the systemctl script I wrote for
that is not executed too.

The network is totally absent; the wireless (know issue after moving to 3.18.2) but also the usb dongle (which was working).

For the network I was using "wicd", therefore to me it seems that  systemctl is now corrupted.

What happened is the following:

1) did the upgrade and rebooted the mac

2) X started as usual but shortly after the mac froze completely (this is most probably due to dkms which was rebulding the
wireless kernel module in the background...and once it was loaded into the kernel it froze the machine)

3) After hard rebooting the mac a second time, X was not working anymore. The screen was constantly switching between
the console and a black screen (I suppose this was slim.service) but the keyboard was at least working since I could reboot
the mac via command line this time.

4) After the 3rd reboot, nothing was working... and I'm locked out.

The mac was running the latest kernel (3.17.X) before upgrading to 3.18.2

My question is:

do you know how to properly chroot so that I can try running pacman again and possibly reinstall the previous version of
the kernel?

Booting the mac with the archlinux netinstall cd works, I mean, keyboard and network do work so I'd try chroot and attempt
a roll back the kernel.

I don't know whether this is the proper way, but this is what I did:
1) Download arch + dd to USB + boot
2) mount my filesystem to /mnt/arch and boot partition to /mnt/arch/boot
3) arch-chroot /mnt/arch /bin/bash
4) pacman -U linux + linux headers packages from /var/cache/pacman/pkg/ (if you don't have them => arch rollback machine)
5) exit chroot
6) umount
7) sync and reboot

It's basically from this wiki:

Re: [SOLVED] broadcom-wl* kernel 3.18 issues thread

3.18.2
03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4360 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter (rev 03)

It first crashed when opening Chromium or Firefox, which made me think I just broke i915 after changing its parameters smile
Then it also crashed at curl...

unloaded it and used my reliable ath9k stick. Everything is stable now.

Re: [SOLVED] broadcom-wl* kernel 3.18 issues thread

An user says that the kernel panic occurs on connection to 2.4GHz network, but don't on connection to 5Ghz ones. Unfortunately I cannot test it at the moment.
