1. Binaries available in my repo: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/metakcahura:/kernel/Arch_Extra_standard/x86_64/
[home_metakcahura_kernel_Arch_Extra_standard]
SigLevel = Never
Server = http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/metakcahura:/kernel/Arch_Extra_standard/$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 
3. For loading unsigned modules. (nvidia, virtualbox, etc.)

If secure boot is disabled just add module.sig_unenforce boot parameter. Otherwise, you'll have to build your kernel with CONFIG_MODULE_SIG_FORCE disabled.

4. Once again (as requested) the _subarch is set to native so for anyone who is building the binaries for redistribution should set it to number corresponding to Generic-x86-64.

@xuanruiqi The package installation size is 64,83 MiB and for headers it's 127,95 MiB for binaries in my repo. Both are smaller in size than default kernel/headers packages. I try to keep my PKGBUILD files as close to upstream linux package as possible.

I just found that this package, when installed, is very large. On my system, for example, it is 666M in size, as opposed to 78M for the regular kernel. It seems that It seems that the blame is on:

/usr/lib/modules/5.14.12-1-clear/build/vmlinux

The reason seems to be that this file is not stripped, as is done in the official kernel. In addition, there are some more discrepancies between this package's PKGBUILD and the upstream linux PKGBUILD. I would like to recommend that the PKGBUILD be revised to match the upstream linux PKGBUILD.

@Gonzo2028 Add fsync/futex patches to sources in PKGBUILD file and build the package. You can get them at these two locations:

https://github.com/Frogging-Family/linux-tkg/tree/master/linux-tkg-patches/5.14

https://github.com/xanmod/linux-patches/tree/master/linux-5.14.y-xanmod/futex2

Can anyone tell me how to add the fsync-patch for/from steam?

@metak: I installed linux-clear-current (5.14.rc7). I reported here, not on linux-clear-current, sorry.

metak commented on 2021-09-17 13:08

@guiodic Well arch kernel is already on 5.14 while this one is still on 5.13. If you can please try linux-clear-bin from my repo just so we can rule out any possible changes introduced in this pkgbuild?

I was wrong, i915/tgl_dmc_ver2_08.bin is not GUC but for power management, nevertheless also GUC seems not work.

With the default kernel all works well:

@metak: yes, it works well with the standard kernel but not for linux-clear

@guiodic Have you checked/tried what's in wiki? https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/intel_graphics#Enable_GuC_/_HuC_firmware_loading
