tell me please if i have to add some info

1 point.

Kernel 5.12 has been End Of Life for months. Please don’t use that.

Use either linux-rpi4 or linux-rpi4-mainline. There is no reason to stay on an old kernel like 5.12.

Usually updating firmware, also requires the newest kernels.

You have these blocked in /etc/pacman.conf?

yes, after i realized the problem, i had to add this rule…
If i forget to not update, then i have to use a backup.

the old kernel is related to this problem:

So you would rather have a completely unsecure system that uses very old and unmaintained kernel, than not being able to play video with hardware acceleration?

so, the problem is solved, updating linux-rpi-rc, if i can ask, is linux-rpi4-rc-headers really necessary ?
thanks :slight_smile:
