@damentz, Thanks, everything is working now! I signed the kernel with my keys and enroll them along with the microsoft keys. Kernel modules sign is something new to me and I don't know anything about it

@vlad1.96, interesting, I thought it's impossible to run secure boot without a stock kernel signed by Microsoft keys. This is new information to me.

Regardless, given you're able to boot in secure boot mode but not load DKMS modules, the reason why the modules can't be loaded is I recently configured Liquorix to use security settings similar to linux-zen and Debian stock.

A new version is on the way (and immediately available through AUR), that reverts those recent changes. Let me know if that helps.

I have something strange with signing modules for secure boot with this core in the last month. Nvidia drivers are not loading with the error: Failed to insert module 'nvidia_uvm': Key was rejected by service. I tried 2 packages: nvidia-dkms and nvidia-beta-dkms, I tried to compile the kernel from here and from the repository. The linux and linux-lts kernels installed nearby working (they also generate kernel modules via DKMS), but linux-lqx does not. Has anything changed in the kernel that affects the signing of kernel modules? I'm not sure if the kernel is to blame, but for some reason the problem is with it. I tried to completely reinstall the system and reinstall the kernel and it doesn't help

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

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

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.
