Hello. I am currently wayy out of my depth with this one and would love some help.
I use a TP-LINK TLWN2279 usb wireless adapter to connect to wireless networks. I recently setup a wifi network and my wifi does not show in the wireless connection options. I checked online and this appears to be fixed with a kernel update so I updated the kernel to linux64.
Black screen. So I check online chroot into the system through a live usb and install linux64-rt which works. Linux64-rt finds and connects to my network flawlessly. Except it doesn’t recognize my monitor as hdmi.
This is inxi of the old (linux515) kernel
and inxi of the new (linux64-rt) kernel
It says no graphics driver installed so I tried installing intel i915 drivers through the pacman gui but that transaction fails.
in the old kernel it shows monitor clearly
but in the new it just says none
I also tried installing mesa-amber, but that again resulted in a black screen.
