linux-mainline RC1-1 seems to have solved the problem for Intel Cherrytrail LPE sound.
Q; On its own with change in kernel userspace, or with mods I made to .config
& Kconfig in sound/x86 ?

You can edit comments using the pen on the upper right corner. Next to the cross.

Will 4.12 finally solve the audio for i915 LPE devices.
I tried to modify the .config and sound>x86>Kfonfig to get sound
in both 4.11 & 4.12 with no success,
whereas this is resolved in Ubuntu since 4.11.
actual module gets built as /lib/modules/4.12.0-rc1-g2b6b38b04c2e+/kernel/sound/x86/snd-hdmi-lpe-audio.ko.gz
but still no sound.

Linux mainline is now at 4.12rc1.

PKGBUILD still has pkgrel=1: .SRCINFO is this file:, which you run on the PKGBUILD only to get the information you see here on this page (also what yaourt and friends get).

You can go rename /var/lib/pacman/local/linux-mainline-4.11rc6-1/ to *-2 and do the same for the %VERSION% in /var/lib/pacman/local/linux-mainline-4.11rc6-2/desc, which is quicker than rebuilding with pkgrel=2.

the revision 2 has a bug, yaourt thinks this is still revision 1 and try to install it over and over. Not 100% sure but could be cause by pkgrel=1??

This commit breaks the kernel's hook. We get an empty file here because of that:

To fix it, we just need to rename the 99-linux.hook to 90-linux.hook, otherwise, we do sed on a non-existing file, forcing us to workaround it with mkinitcpio -p linux-mainline (manually).

@WozMzy, sorry, I misunderstood how the config was handled. I thought it was just taken plainly from core, who has already applied olddefconfig. That is fine then.

WorMzy commented on 2017-04-12 23:32

@kgizdov: As miffe said, the core package's config is used as a base and is updated with olddefconfig which sets all new config options to their recommended/default values.

If you are unhappy with the upstream defaults, complain there. Alternatively, roll your own config as Det suggested.

kgizdov commented on 2017-04-12 22:10

@miffe, as I said, regardless of the flag I mentioned, you are saying you are using a config from a different version of Linux. That is not how Linux works. This is a problem. You can run the built-in conf routine in the Linux source yourself and then diff against the one from another version. You will find that they have huge differences. Please try to mitigate this.
