[solved] kernel 3.5.6-1 autofs4 & dhcpcd eth0 failure

updated last night from 2012.9.07 and getting

systemd[1]: could not find module by name='autofs4'
systemd[1]: Failed to insert 'autofs4'
.....
systemd[1]: Failed to open /dev/autofs: No such file or directory
systemd[1]: Failed to initialize automounter: No such file or directory
systemd[1]: Failed to set up automount Arbitrary Executable....

device mounts and works perfectly

also dhcpcd/ifconfig/ip addr is not recognizing eth0,

lspci -v
Ethernet Controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B

tryed pacman -S autofs r8168
(in haste) and blacklisting r8169 to no avail

so i got 2012.10.06 iso with systemd packaged, pacstrap works fine with connection. eth0 fails on installation
Also my installation kernel that fails is returning 3.5.4-1
am I completely missing something here?
also First Post!
thanks.

Re: [solved] kernel 3.5.6-1 autofs4 & dhcpcd eth0 failure

I've a hunch.  Please post the output of:
lsmod
uname -a

and of
ls -l  /lib/modules

Re: [solved] kernel 3.5.6-1 autofs4 & dhcpcd eth0 failure

Yep. 
Your lsmod output should have several dozen modules.  You have only those that were in the initrd.  The reason is that you are running kernel 3.5.4, but you only have modules for 3.5.6 in /lib/modules.

Somehow, you are not running the correct kernel.  I assume you have rebooted since the last time you updated the kernel.

So, either you have multiple boot partitions and the wrong one was updated; or, you have multiple kernels on your boot partition and your boot loader picked the wrong (old) one; or, when you updated the kernel, /boot was not mounted, so the changes to the kernel did not get written to the boot partition, but rather to the directory at mount point  /boot.

Check if /boot is mounted using the mount command.  If it is not, look in /boot and see if the latest kernel is in there.  If it is mounted, check if the kernel on it is correct.  Then, unmount it and see if there is something in /boot (there should not be).  If there are newer files in /boot than on the actual boot partition, you need to move those files to the boot partition where they belong.

I know that was a lot of stuff smile  Go take a look and tell us what you find and we will get you through this

Re: [solved] kernel 3.5.6-1 autofs4 & dhcpcd eth0 failure

sigh....
pacman -S ntfs-3g (tryed writing out on read only)
dd if=/dev/sda[boot#] of=/media/Win7/linux.bin bs=512 count=1
and all is good to go.
Thank you for diagnosing so quickly!
