Thread: Upgrade 15.3 -> 15.4 wifi not activating and rfkill has' /dev/rfkill not found' error

  1. #1

    Default Upgrade 15.3 -> 15.4 wifi not activating and rfkill has' /dev/rfkill not found' error

    I followed an upgrade procedure to go from 15.3 -> 15.4 (installed on a USB stick). This looks pretty much like the guide I used but I didn't bookmark it: https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:System_upgrade_to_Leap_15.4

    My wifi doesn't activate after reboot (multiple reboots). I don't have an ethernet slot on the laptop, so can't do any updates to see if that sorts out any issues.

    I've seen a couple of other network posts, but rfkill seems to be used and mine is getting an error. I've run commands suggested in other posts to provide data. Any help appreciated.

    I did also run a command that said the wifi was 'enabled' but I forgot to copy that and can't find the command now.

    Bluetooth isn't working either - I did also put in a USB stick that is encrypted and it would accept the password but basically then say 'device not found'. Not sure if these are related, but it seems something not gone quite right.

    Thanks for reading.

    You are running the Kernel from Leap 15.3, try in grub the one from Leap 15.4

    Oh, I see. When I try to update the bootloader in yast, I get the message:
    Code:
    Error output: /usr/bin/grub2-editenv; error: failed to get canonical path of 'LiveOS_rootfs'.
    It may not have been a good idea to upgrade a usb stick. I've had a bit of a google, but nothing very clear to me. Will try again tomorrow. This is presumably why it didn't auto update grub during the upgrade

    And now it turns out you have Live medium. It is garbage in - garbage out. You provide the wrong information and you get the wrong answers (logically).

    You cannot update kernel and bootoader on Live medium using standard package management tools. You need to actually install openSUSE on USB stick (not write over image) using normal installation procedure; then you can continue to maintain it using standard tools (you may need to change default bootloader configuration if you are on UEFI).

    Ah, thank you. You've saved me a lot of time trying to fix it. Sorry for the wrong information.
