No it is not necessary, the package will be not updated anymore, it has no advantage from testing kernel, I switched to testing and recommend this to all package users.

Now that the Testing linux kernel has moved to 4.4.0-3, is it still necessary to maintain this package? Maximka, could you let us know what are the advantage from this package compared to the one in testing?

4.4 upgrade!!!
nvme module is required in boot image, add "nvme" to MODULES in /etc/mkinitcpio.conf and rebuild with "mkinitcpio -p linux-bcm4350" if required

Sorry guys for the stupid question: how can I install this kernel in my Arch? The repo https://aur.archlinux.org/linux-bcm4350.git gives me 404.

@korken89 According to the guide https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Dell_XPS_13_%282016%29:

"It also need a firmware from [3] to be placed to /lib/firmware/brcm/brcmfmac4350-pcie.bin or install the linux-firmware package from the testing repository or linux-firmware-gitAUR."

I have been experiencing a different problem, is the .bin file included in this?
The file, brcm/brcmfmac4350-pcie.bin cannot be found, and indeed the file is not in the folder with the rest.
Adding it manually fixes the problem, but this should be included?

Is there a step that I am missing?

Thanks!

vinc3nt, yes, I have QHD version and it works for me, do you have linux-firmware installed or it git version? if not try to install it and regenerate initramfs with `mkinitcpio -p linux-bcm4350`, may be you missed firmwares for intel i915.

also you can try linux-mainline, it has more patches for Dell XPS 9350, it requires nvme and i915 modules in you mkinitcpio.conf.

Hello Maximka,
is that supposed to work with QHD infinity display?
are the i915 and intel_agp the only required modules?

I am still getting blank screen...
Thanks

Ok, never mind. It seems like a weird think between my laptop and my particular router.

Thanks for the fast reply. For me neither works. Both hang up at the same stage. It also doesn't work in the local network. I can ssh to the localhost though.

I first installed arch linux using arch-anywhere usb stick, compiled your package with makepkg, installed, booted up and everything worked. Then updated the system with pacman -Syu, rebooted into your kernel and wifi failed. Update skrewed some of the modules? Couldn't find out, gave up, recompiled/installed your package, everything worked again. Except of ssh.
