Updates / Reboot keeps removing Ethernet network driver

I always do my updates with: yay -Syyu.

Once updates are finished and I reboot, EndOS has no internet connection and no Ethernet driver installed.

To Fix: After every update I need to ./autorun.sh the Ethernet driver and re-install, and then there is internet connection.

Is there a way to prevent this from happening? Also why is this happening? happens every single time.

Thank you

Are you manually installing the ethernet driver? Which driver and where did you get it from?

Hi Dalto,

Yes I am manually installing the driver. When I first installed EndOS there was no ethernet interface so I had to search for the driver and install manually. Ever since then I need to do it after every update.

I got it from here

Can we see the output of inxi -Fxxxz

He needs the AUR package if it’s the realtek 2.5 Ghz Ethernet.

Don’t forget to wrap the output with code tags here as it makes it easier to read.

Try installing this from AUR


A dkms module will be much easier to manage.
