Does it work if you downgrade linux-firmware ?
Comment by Tomasz (thommen) - Monday, 10 May 2021, 12:12 GMT
I made ↓
pacman -U linux-5.12.1.arch1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst linux-headers-5.12.1.arch1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst
pacman -U
And there was a mistake

On April 30, I made a backup system to the "dd" command. I restored the system. Then I updated the system ↓
pacaur -Syyu --devel --ignore=linux --ignore=linux-firmware --ignore=linux-headers

I excluded the "linux" and "linux-headers" packages from updating, because I feel something that are associated with "linux-firmware".

Since then, 20 kernel updates have appeared. When can you count on fixing errors?
