No boot after today's (2012-6-16) pacman -Syyu

Sat Jun 16, 2012 11:55 am

Updated my RPi today and now it doesn't boot anymore. Just the red LED, nothing else.

I did:

Power on
Login
# pacman -Syyu
# reboot

Anyone else has made this experience? What can I do now? Reinstall? Any new images out there (the latest is from April).

How long ago was your previous update?
Can you remember which packages were updated this time?

There was a six hour period where there was a kernel update, but no firmware update, that caused this
You going to have to get all the files, except kernel.img, from here
https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware ... aster/boot
When you boot, do Syu again

Sorry for my ignorance (not git user), but how may I get at those files?

cd /tmp/alarm
git checkout https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware ... aster/boot

That doesn't do it somehow...

Cloning into 'firmware'...
fatal: unable to connect to github.com:
