@artafinde Sorry for the delay. This kernel is the Intel's branch with latest DRM updates, so it's for people having an Intel iGPU and using it. It's useful to check if they solved bugs against the stable version of the code (Intel-gfx developers say to check if the bug persist in this fork) or want to use their newer code for some other reason like wanting certain newer features (or you are crazy want to be in the bleeding edge ;) ). I'll modify and explain it better today, as I want to improve the use of custom config files (I want that) and add something extra (try to add some patches, but not sure if they will apply against a "moving target" like a git repo). Any help is welcomed.

Here is the info about reporting bugs. Thanks for the feedback, I need to become a better maintainer:

@timofonic what's this kernel give more than official ARCH? Can you give a better description?

I finally modified and made it more similar to linux core PKGBUILD. There's some problem with pacaur that I'll try to ask the developer, I'm a n00b and not sure what's wrong.

Sorry, I did something wrong. I'll try to fix it ASAP after sleeping...

:: Installing linux-drm-tip-git package(s)...
:: linux-drm-tip-git package(s) failed to install.
:: ensure package version does not mismatch between .SRCINFO and PKGBUILD
:: ensure package name has a VCS suffix if this is a devel package

Maybe it can work by removing the following lines. Going to test it, but I wanted to mention it first.

# add docbook makefile
install -D -m644 Documentation/DocBook/Makefile \

This package is broken and nobody maintains it. No hope, soon I'll switch to Gentoo. Lots of compiling, but not broken packages.

I am now trying makepkg -s ... and I had to disable the NOUVEAU driver:


because it failed compiling:

CC [M] drivers/gpu/drm/nouveau/nvkm/engine/device/base.o
drivers/gpu/drm/nouveau/nvkm/engine/device/base.c:2347:1: error: redefinition of ‘nv137_chipset’
nv137_chipset = {
drivers/gpu/drm/nouveau/nvkm/engine/device/base.c:2290:1: note: previous definition of ‘nv137_chipset’ was here
nv137_chipset = {
make[4]: *** [scripts/ drivers/gpu/drm/nouveau/nvkm/engine/device/base.o] Error 1
make[3]: *** [scripts/ drivers/gpu/drm/nouveau] Error 2

Maybe do that anyways in the packages config file ?
... as it's about intel drm this should generally be fine I suppose ;)

Hun. I ran into this trying to install this package:

DEPMOD 4.11.0-rc6-035f22af3e97
sed: -e expression #2, char 44: unknown option to `s'
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package_linux-drm-tip-git().
:: failed to build linux-drm-tip-git package(s)

Also I noticed that I was asked twice to do a "makeconfig old".
Once for compile and once for install.
Maybe that's related to me using pacaur ?
