linux-zen is a conservative enthusiast kernel that works well in most situations, linux-ck is CK patches on mainline (obsolete since Con doesn't maintain it anymore), linux-lqx is a variation of zen with a focus on low latency at cost of throughput.

What's the difference between this and linux-zen or linux-ck?

@dr460nf1r3, I'm surprised you didn't explain why python needs to be added to makedeps, so I did my own research and put the results in the commit:

    Add python to dependencies, fixes bpf build

    Build error:

    /usr/bin/env: ‘python3’: No such file or directory
    make[3]: *** [Makefile:160: /build/src/linux-6.4/tools/bpf/resolve_btfids/libbpf/bpf_helper_defs.h] Error 127

    At the line in the Makefile:

    $(BPF_HELPER_DEFS): $(srctree)/tools/include/uapi/linux/bpf.h
            $(QUIET_GEN)$(srctree)/scripts/ --header \
                    --file $(srctree)/tools/include/uapi/linux/bpf.h > $(BPF_HELPER_DEFS)

    In this case, python is required to execute  Add python to

Pushed out new package version with added dependency.

Could you please add python to makedeps?

@crud, thank you so much for mentioning that! I was looking at line 270. I should have thought to just comment it out. Doh! @damentz, thank you so much for adding that to the line! That fixed it and everything builds fine again! Brilliant!

crud commented on 2023-04-08 14:43 (UTC)

@damentz Thank you very much, now everything is going without errors

damentz commented on 2023-04-08 14:29 (UTC)

Added a || true to the install step for resolve_btfids and bumped the package version. You'll still see the error but it won't stop the build.

damentz commented on 2023-04-08 14:21 (UTC)

You mean enabled? Disabling that option will cause resolve_btfids to not get created.

crud commented on 2023-04-08 14:12 (UTC)

damentz@ Yes, when DEBUG_INFO_BTF_MODULES is disabled, there are no build errors

damentz commented on 2023-04-08 14:08 (UTC)

Ah I see, are you two disabling the DEBUG_INFO_BTF_MODULES config? This will result in the file that is missing not being produced in the build as the comment above line 270 mentions.

If this is a common thing we can just add a || true to the end so it doesn't cause the build to fail for people who don't want debugging turned on.
