Kernel upgrade issues (missing kernel modules?) [SOLVED]

A couple of days ago I set up a new system.
Worked just fine so far. However, today after a kernel upgrade I got these issues:

-> Running build hook: [fsck]

cp: cannot stat '/lib/modules/3.3.8-1-ARCH/kernel/drivers/ata/pata_pdc202xx_old.ko': No such file or directory

you get the idea.

Now upon inspection of my system I found that my /lib/modules/3.3.8-1-ARCH/kernel/ looks like this:

lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root     24 Jun  5 09:30 extramodules -> ../extramodules-3.3-ARCH
drwxr-xr-x 12 root root   4096 Jun  5 09:29 kernel
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 703194 Jun  5 09:29 modules.alias
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 688762 Jun  5 09:29 modules.alias.bin
-rw-r--r--  1 root root   2702 Jun  5 09:29 modules.builtin
-rw-r--r--  1 root root   3579 Jun  5 09:29 modules.builtin.bin
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 346682 Jun  5 09:29 modules.dep
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 483093 Jun  5 09:29 modules.dep.bin
-rw-r--r--  1 root root    353 Jun  5 09:29 modules.devname
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 116651 Jun  5 09:29 modules.order
-rw-r--r--  1 root root    131 Jun  5 09:29 modules.softdep
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 280312 Jun  5 09:29 modules.symbols
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 355147 Jun  5 09:29 modules.symbols.bin

so it makes sense that the directory and files are not found. The question is where is the problem?
Was my Arch web install bad or is there a problem with today's kernel upgrade?

Re: Kernel upgrade issues (missing kernel modules?) [SOLVED]

Upon further inspection the path IS correct. The files are in fact NOT THERE.
Should I re-install the kernel all over? It was working fine for about a week the way it was.
Are there any changes I have missed? I did not see any posts in the Arch news.

Thanks.

You should reinstall the kernel (and possibly udev and mkinitcpio). Then, rerun mkinitcpio -p linux.

Some people had the same problem in this topic.

Re: Kernel upgrade issues (missing kernel modules?) [SOLVED]

Most likely similar to this thread.

Short version; run depmod -a and potentially check your path.

Re: Kernel upgrade issues (missing kernel modules?) [SOLVED]

Terminator & Gcool,

Thank you both for your help.
I ended up following the link Terminator posted in his reply and I was able to solve the problem.
Unlike pineapple-biku (in the aforementioned thread) I did not chroot my machine I just:

pacman -S udev
pacman -S mkinitcpio
mkinitcpio -p linux
pacman -S linux

and that solved the problem.
It's odd, however, the number of people having similar problems upgrading the kernel ... seems like there is a bug somewhere that seems to
affect people that "meet certain criteria".

Thanks gain guys!!

Re: Kernel upgrade issues (missing kernel modules?) [SOLVED]

I've been having the same issue. In case you shutdown and cannot boot into arch use an arch live usb to chroot and reinstall the kernel. 
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Chroot 

My issue seems to be the PATH variable, although /etc/profiles looks good my path is only set to /usr/bin:/bin. How do I fix that?

Note that all the missing modules are '.ko', rather than the gzipped '.ko.gz' that you should expect with the arch kernel. This indicates that depmod failed when you installed the kernel.

Re: Kernel upgrade issues (missing kernel modules?) [SOLVED]

I'm in another machine now, since I'm home.
Tomorrow, when I go to my office, I'll check the logs to see if I find something relevant.
Is there anything in particular you would like me to look for in order to help determining the source of the problem?

Re: Kernel upgrade issues (missing kernel modules?) [SOLVED]

falconindy,

As we already know depmod failed during the upgrade and here is the relevant line:

[2012-06-11 11:18] >>> Updating module dependencies. Please wait ...
[2012-06-11 11:18] /tmp/alpm_BQk1zc/.INSTALL: line 53: depmod: command not found

unfortunately I do not find anything else as to indicate the reason. Nothing else seems to have failed and there are no other errors.

Re: Kernel upgrade issues (missing kernel modules?) [SOLVED]

Because /sbin wasn't in your path when you ran the upgrade. was this really done directly through pacman or was some silly front end involved here?

Re: Kernel upgrade issues (missing kernel modules?) [SOLVED]

All CLI with pacman.
Now, I use pacman via sudo, but that has never been a problem in the last 7  years I've used Arch, so I doubt that would be the reason for the /sbin thing.
I mean, via sudo I would be "effectively" root. Or am I missing something?

I've had the same issue, using pacman directly. The issue is in mkinitcpo, which also fails without /sbin in the PATH.

My /etc/profiles contains the correct path, but it is either not setting it correctly, or it is being overwritten later on. Any ideas on where to start? How could I change my PATH across shell instances?

I sincerely doubt this, given that:

1) mkinitcpio itself is in /usr/bin (for legacy reasons, there remains a symlink in /sbin)
2) mkinitcpio sets its own sane path

That said, bug reports welcome if you think something is actually broken here.

Re: Kernel upgrade issues (missing kernel modules?) [SOLVED]

I just ran mkinitcpio without /sbin in my path to test if it was the problem and the image was build successfully. I knew that previously it had failed so I ran pacman -S linux, which did fail to build the image, giving the same errors as OP, then I re-ran mkinitcpio and it failed the same way. Adding /sbin to the path did not help with mkinitcpio, but re installing the kernel with pacman was fixed.

Re: Kernel upgrade issues (missing kernel modules?) [SOLVED]

I was just giving a detailed rundown of what happened, to be as clear as possible. After running those tests it's clear that it's not mkinitcpio, and is part of the install process.
