Kernel Headers install

Please make it so Kernel-Headers are either automatically installed or add an option to the kernel-config to install them. This is especially a problem when your dkms modules suddenly don’t work any more after a kernel update.
E.g. if your Wi-Fi driver is dkms: You do a reboot after an update, and boom, you suddenly don’t have any network connection… Now I need to connect to LAN to get the headers to fix it, which is not user-friendly at all. :frowning:

Can you not boot into the previous kernel you have installed and install the headers for the new kernel from there?

Well that is possible but imho it’s still not user-friendly. Especially because the headers aren’t even shown inside the pamac-gui, so you need to install them from command line, which is super unintuitive and confusing when you upgrade your kernel only like every 4 months.
Long story short: When I install a new kernel, I expect kernel related things to work and not randomly break because a simple 30MiB package isn’t installed.

They are shown.


Okay, my bad. Somehow I didn’t find them, but I stand with my point: It’s unintuitive to not have them installed automatically, because it can break the system, which could easily be prevented.

Not everyone needs them though, I don’t have any headers installed.
