This build hangs on shutdown and reboot on all my PCs like every rc1 since 4.5.
But this time i don't see any kernel panic message, just black monitor and computer don't turn off.

you can fixed it by disabling CONFIG_MODVERSIONS,

After the upgrade to 4.9rc1-1, boot could not find the dev mapper for my root device (systemd-boot + luks + lvm) so I had an unbootable machine (didn't get any errors/warnings during mkinit or install).

I've downgraded back to linux-mainline 4.8-1 but word of warning and/or any advice/input is welcome

@mirh: They dont change that often. See
And it seems pointless to update them just to get another version string in a comment.

mirh commented on 2016-09-14 19:37

They can even be a week old, but if this is 4.8rc6, why the header of the file mentions 4.7.3-2 ?

miffe commented on 2016-08-29 14:04

They are a week old. And they are necessary.

mirh commented on 2016-08-29 13:22

Config files this package comes with are, for as much default, quite old and trigger some warnings.
Could they be updated?

Or even better, do we really need to ship them?

I got a problem trying to get r8168-dkms working it fails to build the module
Is there something I need to add to the package build to get it working, this fails on both mainline and git kernels

Your kernel headers for kernel cannot be found at
/usr/lib/modules//build or /usr/lib/modules//source.

Edit: i have linux-mainline-headers installed and the git one as well

Edit 2:
$ cat /var/lib/dkms/r8168/8.042/build/make.log

I'm getting the following warning:

I wonder if it's a misconfiguration some where.

I had the same issue as craftyguy and his solution fixed it.
