Subject: [gentoo-user] Lost wireless interface after updates
Date: Sun, 18 Oct 2015 18:22:52

Hello all,

I haven't updated my system "emerge --sync" in a while (2-3 months).
Few days ago I did.
After that I lost my wireless interface. I am using wpa_supplicant to
connect, but this is not the issue. The interface is not initialized,
and I am not sure what changes are needed to get it working again.
Here's some troubleshooting commands. If I missed something, please
let me know. By  the way, rfkill is not working. Thank you in advance.

rfkill list
