@nootrix:matrix.orgnootrixRan into the issue as well, it's only the native package that's broken, flatpak works fine21:14:24

@icosahunter:matrix.orgicosahunterjust rebooted my system and it doesn't seem to recognize my network card at all? (getting "no wireless extension" from iwconfig) anyone have an idea what might have happened?04:34:48
@icosahunter:matrix.orgicosahunterok, it does show my network card in pci devices in system info04:36:13
@harveydevel:matrix.orgHarveyDo you use hibernation/suspend? Do you multiboot?04:52:59
@icosahunter:matrix.orgicosahunteri dual boot but windows is on a separate drive. i see in systemctl thay NetworkManager.service "failed"04:58:58
@harveydevel:matrix.orgHarveyhttps://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/drivers/iwlwifi#about_dual-boot_with_windows_and_fast-boot_enabled05:00:17
@harveydevel:matrix.orgHarveyFastboot on windows tends to break things as it does not actually shutdown properly by default.05:00:39
@icosahunter:matrix.orgicosahunteri doubt thats the issue as it's been a while since ive run my windows side, ive restarted linux side multiple times since then with no issues05:01:52
@icosahunter:matrix.orgicosahunteri did update chrome earlier today, I'll try rolling that back, maybe it updated some things but not others and broke something 05:02:42
@icosahunter:matrix.orgicosahunteroh, I can't roll back because it cant see the repos05:05:15
@harveydevel:matrix.orgHarvey you can just see what changed with eopkg hs if it was just chrome that is not the cause. 05:06:39
@icosahunter:matrix.orgicosahunterit updated a bunch of things (dependencies i assume, unless i accidentally updated everything instead of just chrome or something)05:12:26
@harveydevel:matrix.orgHarvey Assuming you can. I would connect it via ethernet, perform a full system update sudo eopkg up -y and reboot. 05:17:08
@icosahunter:matrix.orgicosahunteri am hooked up via Ethernet and it doesn't see that either...05:17:41
@harveydevel:matrix.orgHarveyI would hard power off and boot again to rule out some sleep state nonsense.05:20:05
@icosahunter:matrix.orgicosahunteri tried that a few minutes ago, i can try even unplugging it for a few seconds or something ig05:21:07
@icosahunter:matrix.orgicosahunternope, didn't help05:23:00
@icosahunter:matrix.orgicosahunterit seems the network manager can't start because it can't find libunstring.so.205:26:34
@harveydevel:matrix.orgHarveyYeah sounds like a partial update.05:33:50
@harveydevel:matrix.orgHarveyAt this point I would boot of a Solus ISO, chroot in and perform a full update but I don't know how comfortable you are doing that. https://help.getsol.us/docs/user/troubleshooting/boot-rescue/#incorrectly-applied-updates--disk-changes05:34:37
@harveydevel:matrix.orgHarveyAlternatively backup because this could make it worse. Download these to usb -> put on laptop and install https://packages.getsol.us/shannon/libu/libunistring/libunistring-1.0-8-1-x86_64.eopkg https://packages.getsol.us/shannon/libu/libunistring/libunistring-32bit-1.0-8-1-x86_64.eopkg05:39:57
@icosahunter:matrix.orgicosahunterthis sounds like a job for tomorrow, thanks!05:46:33
@harveydevel:matrix.orgHarvey My original thinking was if networking stuff needed libunistring.so.2 and other shit had already updated to libunistring.so.5 then we might break more important by reverting. I just realised that update has not reached shannon (stable) yet. So if you are not on the unstable repository and are missing libunistring.so.2 then installing those packages can only improve things not hurt. 06:00:38

@harveydevel:matrix.orgHarveyBut backups are always good so do it anyway.06:01:17
@abracapocus:matrix.orgabracapocus joined the room.17:37:02
@icosahunter:matrix.orgicosahunterI am using unstable19:13:13
@davidjharder2:matrix.orgdavidjharder2 joined the room.19:13:39
@icosahunter:matrix.orgicosahunteri imagine if i chroot in and update everything it will probably fix it, but we'll see when I'm back at my computer later today 19:15:01
@icosahunter:matrix.orgicosahunterGot it working doing the above. I had to figure out how to do all the weird chroot stuff, and then had to copy "/etc/resolv.conf" from the live image into the broken system to get network to work in the chroot environment, but then I was able to do a full update and it works just fine (it seems to have automatically repaired my mucking with the resolv.conf file too).21:25:36
