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

Server =$repo/$arch
SigLevel = Optional TrustAll

I have an ongoing issue with this package -- since it provides an initcpio preset file, any changes I make to it are moved to a .pacsave file and not restored on upgrade. (My specific case for editing the initcpio preset, by the way, is that I use UKIs to be picked up automatically by systemd-boot.)

I checked documentation, and kernel packages actually should not provide their own initcpio preset. Instead, these are generated/restored by /usr/share/libalpm/hooks/90-mkinitcpio-install.hook, and removed/backed up by 60-mkinitcpio-remove.hook.

What happens on upgrade is this:

  1. 60-mkinitcpio-remove.hook moves the modified linux-amd-znver3.preset to linux-amd-znver3.preset.pacsave

  2. the package installs its own linux-amd-znver3.preset

  3. 90-mkinitcpio-install.hook sees that linux-amd-znver3.preset already exists and forgoes overwriting it with linux-amd-znver3.preset.pacsave.

So please, remove the .preset file from this package and related ones.

And of course, many thanks for your effort in providing these kernels and the binary repo!

@eggz: You're welcome. The config option that likely triggers the bug is CONFIG_GCC_PLUGIN_STACKLEAK=y btw, and your kernel config does use that option.

@hardfalcon Ill have a look at your fix tomorrow when I have more energy, thank you for the fix and thread, that would indeed explain the complexity of this error!

@anarconda thanks again for the feedback

@anarconda I know you're trying to help -- but I'm afraid the EFI problem is too complex to figure out on this evening, so im releasing an interim build without the efi module until I know why the module is giving trouble. Something is not right and last time upstream had to revert an EFI commit aswel ; I am incredibly suspicious.

Anarconda commented on 2024-04-10 20:22 (UTC)

I'm just trying to help to debug this thing with a little good humor.

eggz commented on 2024-04-10 20:16 (UTC)

@anarconda not trying to convince you -- just trying to fix the kernel @hardfalcon a fixed build is coming up. I am done with the breaking changes in the EFI module. :-)

eggz: I have a suspicion that you're affected by the same bug that I stumbled across, though it is caused by another commit.

The same commit is also present in kernel 6.6.26 btw.

Here's a fix that worked for me (at least with the reduced kernel config that I used for bisecting).

For details, see this thread.

Anarconda commented on 2024-04-10 20:02 (UTC)

I have this in my /proc/config.gz right now (kernel 6.8.5)



Sorry, but still not convinced.

eggz commented on 2024-04-10 19:54 (UTC)

It seems this is the commit that broke my kernels:

if you enable CONFIG_EFI you will get into trouble. Probably because of the CONFIG_AMD_MEM_ENCRYPT dependency. This isnt the first time CONFIG_EFI got broken by upstream so I will probably leave it off on all the kernels even if they fix it afterwards (which they did last time, but only after a while). builds are coming up.

eggz commented on 2024-04-10 17:54 (UTC)

The problem is definetly upstairs. you are simply not using the module that is broken right now on your working kernel. The problem is I dont know which one it is.
