I hope it worth posting that few days ago, Parabola released PKGBUILD for linux-libre 6.3.3-1. As well as related files. My experience with upstream changes for linux 6.3 is good. As anticipated by Linux objtool Improvements Help Reduce RAM Usage & Build Time During Large Kernel Builds. Still, I do recommend, and will do, make localmodconfig in between --nobuild and --noextract.

I am not sure about using an asp like tool. Freedom Issue #1755: [asp] Links to Arch source repositories instead of ..., Freedom Issue #3224: your-freedom and asp are in conflict - Packages ....

All the current source files from, plus an index.html file, can be downloaded to the current working directory with wget --no-directories --no-parent --recursive --reject txt Followed by makepkg --verifysource to download the rest of the required source files, and verify the source.

I was able to build it on a modest, few years old, desktop, with the Parabola PKGBUILD file. It was not a smooth process, memory wise. I am not sure what exactly make the build succeed. It could be that closing some major applications did the trick. As is, the package conflicts with the Linux package. This patch seem to fix it. A similar patch probably required for other packages built by the Parabola PKGBUILD. I haven't created those packages.

Before installing this package, think carefully about whether you want to sit with holes in the kernel for months, while everything has been fixed in the vanilla kernel for a long time. I don't think this package is meant to be used at all because of the careless attitude of the maintainer.

@Lutrim It's not the case that I "do not want to distribute the binary version". It's simply because this package is not for using pre-compiled binaries, but for building from source. It's the package objective, simple like that. A package with pre-compiled binaries would need to be a separated one, with a different name, a different PKGBUILD, and so on. Regarding to the semantic terms that you used, please remember that the AUR do not distribute pre-compiled binaries (even on '-bin' packages), but it only provides build scripts (recipe files) for the user to create an Arch Linux package by his own for using with pacman, so the term "distribute the binary" does not apply to the AUR as a whole.

@dbermond, I heard you, however it is a pity that you do not want to distribute the binary version.

dbermond commented on 2022-04-24 12:58 (UTC)

@Lutrim This package is for building from source. If you want pre-compiled binaries you need to look for another package. As the kernel is a critical and configure-specific software, it would be better to use a build specific for Arch Linux, which upstream does not provide.

Lutrim commented on 2022-04-24 05:47 (UTC)

@dbermond, These are packages that do not require assembly, as they are already completely ready for installation. For example, the librewolf packages and its binary version librewolf-bin.

dbermond commented on 2022-04-24 04:57 (UTC)

@Lutrim what do you mean by "binary version"?

Lutrim commented on 2022-04-24 02:31 (UTC)

How about the binary version?

Package is broken.

This AUR Package want to download

But linux-libre-5.13.8-gnu.tar.xz didnt exist:

dbermond commented on 2021-09-05 12:57 (UTC)

@lunainvictum Indeed. The 5.13 sources disappeared from upstream. Fixed by using 5.13.8 sources.
