The PKGBUILD file supports a few different configurable build-time options:
  • _makenconfig Tweak kernel options prior to a build via nconfig. Pseudo-graphical menu based on ncurses. 1 2
  • _localmodcfg Only compile active modules to VASTLY reduce the number of modules built and the build time.
  • Please read arch wiki page for detailed explanation on how to use it.
  • _subarch Enable additional optimization/tuning for kernel builds by adding more micro-architectures options. Default is Generic-x86-64 number 36 if nothing else is selected.
  • PKGBUILD file with the list of architectures
  • graysky kernel_compiler_patch
  • _use_current Use the current kernel's .config file. Enabling this option will use the .config of the RUNNING kernel rather than the ARCH defaults. Useful when the package gets updated and you already went through the trouble of customizing your config options. NOT recommended when a new kernel is released, but again, convenient for package bumps.
  • _use_llvm_lto Compile the kernel with LLVM/Clang.
  • _debug Enable y some additional debug features present in arch kernel, but not in Clear upstream. n to force disable or leave empty to ignore.
Lastly, build the kernel by setting your environment variable env _subarch=40 _localmodcfg=y.

1. Binaries available in my repo:
SigLevel = Never
Server =$arch
2. After install adjust your boot cmd line. ClearLinux uses clr-boot-manager which takes care of that. This is upstream default:
quiet console=tty0 console=ttyS0,115200n8 cryptomgr.notests initcall_debug intel_iommu=igfx_off kvm-intel.nested=1 no_timer_check noreplace-smp page_alloc.shuffle=1 rcupdate.rcu_expedited=1 rootfstype=ext4,btrfs,xfs,f2fs tsc=reliable rw

ls-alh: That's weird behaviour. I'm using the normal tmpfs size and it compiles without error. Maybe your tmpfs is filled with stuff before even starting the compilation process, try checking /tmp before compiling. Otherwise I don't know what could be causing this.

Building linux-clear has been failing since 6.8.10 due to filling up /tmp directory. I haven't changed anything about compiling between past successes and new failings. Since failures, I've tried increasing /tmp space from 5.8 GiB to 10 GiB to no avail. It still fills up. I don't use modprobed-db to reduce compile time/space. My system is otherwise up-to-date. Can someone help me debug this?

EDIT: After a successful git clone and `BUILDDIR=/Storage/tmp _subarch=24 makepkg', my otherwise empty /Storage/tmp is now 20GiB...

You need to install modprobed-db from air start the service and then when your compiling a kernel run as root modprobed-db command to load the list of modules to be used, also you have to modify PKBUILD a bit to be ready to accept modprobed.

I built this kernel a million times using modprobe and it only takes 10 minutes tops

oddpuck: I haven't tried using modprobed-db during kernel compilation yet, but maybe it compiles all modules first and then sorts them out during package().

I'll try compiling my custom kernel (which is based on this package) with modprobed-db enabled in a few days, maybe I can confirm my suspicion. I'll definitely post more info here in the coming days.

I must be doing something wrong. I have the db file from modprobed-db, and I put its path at line 18 in the PKGBUILD. It still starts building a bunch of amd drm stuff, at which point I kill the build, after ~19 minutes. CPU is an i7-12800H. Nvidia GPU

oddpuck: It only took about twenty minutes on my gaming hardware, with the "performance" cpu scheduler on the linux-lts kernel. Oh and I gave makepkg a nice level of -20.

oddpuck: update from 6.7.9 to 6.7.10 with env _use_current=y _subarch=44 _localmodcfg=y _debug=n paru -S linux-clear linux-clear-headers took exactly 14 minutes on an undervolted i5-8350U

oddpuck commented on 2024-03-16 22:56 (UTC)

How long does it normally take to build?

metak commented on 2024-01-26 16:41 (UTC)

@NaNpsycho This package tracks Clear Linux kernel package that is still on 6.6.* series. When they rebase the patches and update to 6.7 so will this package.

NaNpsycho commented on 2024-01-23 15:22 (UTC)

Hey just wanna know is there a particular reason we are sticking with the linux-lts kernel version? We already have linux 6.7 around so there any particular reason why the clear linux patches are compiled against linux 6.6?
