I would like to report a driver issue, with kernel 6.0.2-2
I use Manjaro Linux on my Dell Latidude E6420 laptop, and i noted that my Wi-fi stopped working with Linux Kernel 6.0.2-2.
What does anyone know anythiung if there is hardware support dropped from 2 Gen/ 3 Gen Core I hardware?
Hardware configuration is:
CPU: 2 gen Core I5, a decent 2 Gen Intel Core i7-2640M is purchased and in delivery
RAM: 4 GB ram Dual channel 2x2 GB, DDR3 1333, 16 GB ram for Dual channel 2x8 GB, DDR3 1333 is purchased and in delivery
BIOS verion: A26 - Newest available
Chipset: Intel QM67 Express, 6 series intel chipset
Wi-fi adapter: Broadcom BCM43228
I installed Manjaro Linux 21.3.7 with Kernel 5.15 - Wi-fi worked.
I updated to Manjaro Linux to 22.0.0 with Kernel 5.15 - Wi-fi worked.
I updated to Manjaro Linux 22.0.0 with Kernel 5.19.16 - Wi-fi worked.
I Updated to Manjaro Linux 22.0.0 with Kernel 6.0.2-2 - Wi9fi stopped working.
While making my troubleshooting, i made sure the laptop is online by connecting it with cable to my router. i also made sure that outside of the kernel, everything else is fully updated, I also made sure that Arch Repository was enabled, before begin to update, and updated the manjaro keyring, arch keyring, Updates databases, while still on 21.3.7 with kernel 5.15 so i can maximize my chances of getting something that i may otherwise miss.
I tried to manually remove the wi-fi driver, reboot, make clean install of the Wi-fi driver, the Wi-fi driver installs with errors, No reboot, Wi-Fi does not work, I rebooted, tried again, Wi-fi still does not work,
I tried the built in reinstall routine, it did uninstall and reinstall the driver, install goes with errors, No reboot, Wi-fi does not work. I rebooted, Wi-fi did not work.
please note: the laptop came with BIOS version A05, when i noticed the problem, and i was reverting to Kernel 5.19.16 where the Wi-Fi works Updated BIOS, to A06, tried again, 5.19.16 Wi-fi works, going to 6.0.2-2, wifi fails. I updated Bios to A08, same issue, same kernels, same behavior, next i went to bios version, same version swapping, same issues with same versions, then i went to A26, same results, same versions working, same versions failing.
While make all this dance with BIOS and Kernel versions i was using Manjaro Linux 22.0.0 with the 5.19.16 or 6.0.2 kernels with the same result between Kernel versions.
Do you have any advice or some guide, different than than reverting to kernel 5.19.16? Best result is if i can use it with Kernel 6.0 and Kernel 6.1 kernels.
