GCC13.1 is mainlined in arch, so this means znver4 support can kick off on this kernel. The graysky compile patches have been updated too.

This kernel now natively supports the znver4 arch, but this kernel will most likely keep working on all AMD ryzen hardware. It's better to be able to address certain small perks or issues per architecture now and in the future.

If you use znver3 based hardware, please use linux-amd-znver3
If you use znver2 based hardware, please use linux-amd-znver2
If you use raven based hardware, please use linux-amd-raven

Tired of compiling? Use this binary repo instead! Add this at the end of /etc/pacman.conf :

Server =$repo/$arch
SigLevel = Optional TrustAll

@eggz thank's for patch, this is for study propose, I'm training for VPC certification, so is very importan for me. Thanks for your work.


I tested nested virtualization for KVM and now works perfectly for Vmware ESXI 8.

@Mario156090 okay, okay, I added the supposed svm patches. kvm/libvirt seems to work fine here but unsure about the nested kvm behaviour. Thanks for the headsup.

Hmm okay. While this is a desktop oriented kernel, the patch is a simple one so I guess I could do it... let me think about it.

PS: OMG, Who the hell runs a esxi hypervisor nested inside KVM? Dear god just use KVM natively.. what the hell is wrong with people...

Hello, what about to add this patch in the build kernel?

In linux kernel from there is a bug with KVM with amd processors and this patch fix it.

For the record, Cachyos is still on linux 6.5 . We have 6.6, and I know 6.6 has some framebuffer changes (so dont know there is some changes going on there aswel)

BUT, I have a 4k system which, indeed, shows the font as intended on a 4k screen, so Very small. It has always been like this -- through more kernels than my own. You make it sound as the font is "wrong", but the font is actually completely correct for that resolution. Aside from that, I dont know exactly how to mess with it myself, but here I read doing some trickery like


or stuff like if you want a really sleek, well rendered looking console.

WARNING: Im just guessing here. I dont use my 4k screen for console, and I never will :) EDIT: corrected some mistakes

Just reporting back: The boot / system shell font is completely wrong on hidpi (4k) screens. Everything is extremely small, to the point of being unreadable.

This doesn't seem to be a system setting, but rather to be set in the kernel as I have installed linux-amd on Cachyos and with the Cachyos kernels the fonts have the correct size in 4k.

Thanks, i got control over most of my fans now. i think there are still some code missing in nct6775 but i can move the missing fans to different headers

eggz commented on 2023-09-28 06:22 (UTC)

can you retest?

noideaman commented on 2023-09-28 00:07 (UTC)

Under linux-zen I can load my sensors, but I can not in here for linux-amd

sudo modprobe nct6775 
modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'nct6775': No such device

I tried enabling missing configs for nct6775 but it still failed.

noideaman commented on 2023-09-03 02:00 (UTC)

Yep that works. Thank you.
