hi UPDATE: ITt is FIXED with latest update today :) I just did the update on 22/03/2022 and my thinkpad laptop cannot see the wireless anymore. I removed and reinstalled by the help of my cell phone wireless / hotspot. It still does not work. It was working fine today since 3 months. currently on Manjaro ; kernel 5.15.28-1 I am Manjaro with latest updates. Anything changed ??

Can you recommend what do i have to do ? (I am kinda new to Linux; 3 months only:)

dkms.conf file shows this ;

PACKAGE_NAME="@_PKGBASE@" PACKAGE_VERSION="@PKGVER@" BUILT_MODULE_NAME[0]="${PACKAGE_NAME}core" BUILT_MODULE_NAME[1]="${PACKAGE_NAME}pci" MAKE[0]="make -C ${kernel_source_dir} M=${dkms_tree}/${PACKAGE_NAME}/${PACKAGE_VERSION}/build modules" CLEAN="make -C ${kernel_source_dir} M=${dkms_tree}/${PACKAGE_NAME}/${PACKAGE_VERSION}/build clean" DEST_MODULE_LOCATION[0]=/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/realtek/rtw89 DEST_MODULE_LOCATION[1]=/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/realtek/rtw89 AUTOINSTALL=yes BUILD_EXCLUSIVE_KERNEL="^(4.[0-9]+.|5.[0-9].|5.1[0-5].)"

Maybe writing rtw89-dkms-git.install like this will work with extramodules-*

post_upgrade() {
    if [[ $(vercmp "1:r0.4dc5371-1" "$2") -eq 1 ]]; then
    # upgraded from epoch 0, kernel <= 5.15
        for i in /usr/lib/modules/*/; do
            echo "==> rtw89-dkms-git: depmod ${i}"
            if [[ "${i##*/}" != extramodules-* ]];then
                depmod "${i##*/}"

I'm not getting the sha256 error anymore and my wifi interface is available again - thanks!

For AP mode (hostapd) this package is not obsolete for systems with the standard arch kernel yet, because currently AP mode (hostapd) is only supported by (since commit and not by mainline kernel 5.16 yet.

The sha256 doesn't match. Now the sha256 of dkms.conf is d4015a9c63b86baa120b558f4acc19c60fe5cbea7ded338173e08cec47327b40

I am getting this error:

    dkms.conf ... FAILED
==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

Thanks dude. You've done a great job so far. Used your package and saved my 800 GBP Lenovo-13ALC6.

This package should be removed after upgrade to linux >= 5.16
