One laptop two drives two OS -
Endeavour is with 5.16 with great Wi-Fi problems
Debian 11 - no Wi-Fi problems
in a different post on the issue, it seems that the problem is the kernel 5.16
Debian gives advance options to select previous kernels.
How do I boot EOS from an older kernel?
You can install the
linux-lts package and boot into that kernel by choosing it in the grub menu.
do a pacman -Q
pacman -Q akm
If akm is not displayed install akm
sudo pacman -S akm
Follow the instructions, choose the LTS kernel
well one issue is I have very unreliable wifi…
I will have to find ethernet cable, connect directly to the router and see if I can connect to the wifi.
(I am writing this from my Debian host)
I’ll give it a go.
You could update, the latest kernel is up to 5.17.x currently.
There are a few kernels available from the AUR, and the obvious suggestion already made is the lts kernel.
Arch always is right now. The only way to “just use” an older kernel is to have either not updated from it initially or from a comprehensive back up bringing your entire OS back to a previous state.
Installing the linux-lts then updating solved the issue.
Also I did connect the machine to a wired connection (maybe that helped as well)
Issue been resolved.
