I changed mirrors and that seemed to have done the trick. Well, umm, not really. What I mean is two kernel26.32 packages got updated but now my machine is completely dead in the water! I guess I'm gonna have to boot with the live CD when I get home and start downgrading some packages <sigh>. This is the first time I've upgraded kernel packages and have my machine fall completely over! no boot! I'm at work now so can't deal further with this until I get home tonight but...
Did you pacman -Syu, or did you just update the kernel when you updated after you changed the mirror? Also, you can expect problems with the 26.32 series, as it has just been introduced. However, in all the time I have been using Arch, I have never had my machine break massivly from a kernel update.
P.S. Don't top post, it can make things hard to read.
Yes I did. I recalled 4 packages being specified for update. I forget their exact names now but two of them were kernel26-32 related. They each had an additional qualifier like driver, module, etc. Sorry, I'm not at that computer right now and it can't boot yet anyway <sigh>.
