[Solved] Devices stop working after update

Hi all,

Every now and again (I think after an update but not 100% sure), startx fails to run due to no device found and I can't connect to any networks due to my wifi card not working. I can fix it by running pacstrap base linux linux-firmware from a live usb, but obviously that't not ideal smile

Does anyone know what might be going on?

You forget to mount the /boot partition before the update or have it mounted but actually boot the root partition.
Compare "uname -a" and "pacman -Qs linux" when this happens. They'll likely fall apart.

Yup - pretty sure that was it! I've updated my fstab and everything seems to be working now. Thanks so much!

Please always remember to mark resolved threads by editing your initial posts subject - so others will know that there's no task left, but maybe a solution to find.
Thanks.

I was just trying to work out if I had to do that manually smile
