Stock kernel parameters are saved in /boot/vmlinuz-linux-clear.cmdline. Although you may not need to apply all the parameters, you should copy most of these into your systemd-boot or GRUB configuration.

If you are using out-of-tree kernel modules with dkms you will need to add the module.sig_unenforce parameter to allow loading of unsigned kernel modules.

Please check the Clear Linux kernel releases on GitHub (not before flagging out of date here.

Thanks @metak. I've updated this package and verified that it boots.

metak commented on 2022-05-24 04:55 (UTC)

It's fixed now in latest release.

Thank you, @metak. I had pull requests merged in the clearlinux-pkgs/linux repository before so I didn't realize they weren't looking there now.

@aorth Maintainer of linux-clear package here. I've opened up a new issue for compressed firmware on their issue tracker where it should be seen, they don't look at pull requests for individual packages.

Edit (2022-01-31): Ah I see, Arch Linux began using compressed firmware last week and this requires CONFIG_FW_LOADER_COMPRESS=y in the kernel config. The Clear Linux kernel does not have this option set.

Edit 2 (2022-01-31): I have sent a pull request to Clear Linux to enable compressed firmware loading in their kernel.

Edit 3 (2022-04-25): I've basically stopped updating this package since we can no longer use it in Arch without the patch above. I'll probably orphan the package soon.

Is this being built against glibc 2.34? Unable to get nvidia dkms driver to build. Seeing scripts/basic/fixdep: /usr/lib/ version 'GLIBC_2.34' not found (required by scripts/basic/fixdep) in the dkms build log

Hi @radiomike. I'm not sure what environment Intel builds it in and I don't use nvidia so I can't help there. We are only re-packaging the binary builds Intel makes available publicly for Clear Linux.

Linux 5.12 is finally in Clear Linux. It seems they skipped 5.11 entirely! Enjoy.

It make sense that kernel should not be in /boot directly, and that we want a simple tool to take care of everything. It is a good design for this part. But I just don't like the name for the tool (mkinitcpio). It should be more like boot-manager or maybe bootctl (if systemd acquire it), it is not only, or maybe not at all for initcpio. It is esp. for clear kernel since it has almost every possible rootfs built in. And this idea should also apply to ucode. They should not be in /boot either. Has it been decided where they should go ?

aorth commented on 2020-12-13 09:15 (UTC)

I must have got a bit confused but, what is the right way to copy the kernel to /boot ? I see no alpm hooks here.

@yw662 in 2019-11 there were changes to Arch's mkinitcpio package. Installation to /boot is automatic when usr/lib/modules/*/vmlinuz is changed.

I updated linux-clear-bin here:
