Binaries available in my repo:

Edit: don't forget to adjust your boot cmd line. CLR uses clr-boot-manager which takes care of that. This is upstream default:

But I don't see the microcode for linux on Intel's website yet.

@PythonNut Yes, "CONFIG_CRYPTO_USER" is not set by default.

PythonNut commented on 2018-02-02 07:08

On many arch systems, this will cause systemd-modules-load to fail because the crypto_user module is not available.

@volfyd The srpm thing was a temporary solution. I filled the issue on github and they've updated the git repo which was out of date for two weeks or so.

Now, I've switched to the official kernel tarball/patch and fetching clearlinux patches via git.


This should save a bit of bandwidth and cause less problems. ;-)

Looks like 516 is already out.

@ahjolinna nvidia? Sorry, but no. Never had/used any nvidia cards so I wouldn't be able to test anything.

"dm_cache & dm_cache_smq"? I answered this one in my first comment below. It's not enabled by default. It's marked as experimental in kernel.

Here's a patch you can try that enables it. Add it to sources in pkgbuild file and rebuild the package.

ahjolinna commented on 2018-01-26 01:52

why isn't the "dm_cache & dm_cache_smq" enabled in the kernel conf?, as I get module not found error

ahjolinna commented on 2018-01-25 16:34

@metak: btw. is it possible you could add the nvidia driver to repo so there wouldn't be any need to compile least an aur version

ahjolinna commented on 2018-01-25 16:25

it seems I have to use a workaround for this problem; by adding "SigLevel = Never" ...not the best solution but it works so I'm happy

about the "intel-ucode" thing, I didnt know/notice as I have skylake cpu so thankfully it hasn't affected me

metak commented on 2018-01-25 16:02

@ahjolinna I can't help with the repo since that is the limitation with archlinux support in opensuse build service. I reported that issue years ago. ;-) Basically, build service rebuilds packages even when that's not actually necessary and thus pkgver-pkgrel don't change but the package is now 'corrupt'. It's safe to just install it with pacman -U. Although, this kernel builds fast even on my old machine.

As for "intel-ucode", there's a bug opened, known issues, debian and redhat also reverted to that older version, and intel removed the 20180108 tarball from their site.
