I am using an automatic update script for my installs that also automatically installs new kernels using the linux-latest and linux-lts meta packages using pamac. These packages do not automatically install the required modules that where previously installed the same way a manual install of the linux54 and linux55 package would.
Originally i solved this by then manually issuing an install command for the linux package (pamac install linux) , which would then trigger the installation of all the missing packages for all my installed kernels. With this extra line in the script i could enjoy seamless kernel upgrades without me having to do them myself.
Unfortunately after reinstalling my testing laptop today with the latest manjaro testing this trick no longer works. Using the
pamac install linux command it only triggers the module installation for the linux54 packages, but not the linux55 packages that are missing and need to be installed after installing linux-latest. I can manually issue
pamac install linux55and get the required modules installed that way but i do not know how to properly script this.
Is there a reliable way i can include in my script that will install the installed modules for the newer kernels that get installed trough linux-latest and linux-lts? Would i need to file a bug report somewhere that these linux-lts and linux-latest packages are not installing the extra modules required?
Looking forward to your feedback.
