anyone has a problem where if you have a partition encrypted, and have crypttab set up, when it prompts you to enter the passphrase, after 3 seconds it just goes into emergency mode?

It appears there is also another problem with BTF on v5.11-rc2 that causes some modules to fail to load (in my system nothing critical, but modules like crc32c_intel printed an error in dmesg and failed to load).

It's already have been reported here ->

As a workaround I commented the line "fs_initcall(btf_module_init);" in kernel/bpf/btf.c.

EDIT: Proper patch should be available here:

Building external/DKMS modules seems to require 'pahole' to be installed during the module build now (I think this is related to kernel commits 5f9ae91f7c0dbbc4195e2a6c8eedcaeb5b9e4cbb and e732b538f4557cd0a856bbce3cde55d2dfef3b03).

@DanEng1982: I ran into the same problem recently and it turns out it was due to python-packaging 20.8-1 from the testing repositories breaking python-sphinx (just running "sphinx-build --version" crashed).

Anyway, I checked it and it appears that it now works for me, I guess python-packaging 20.8-2 fixed it.

I'm happy I could help @DanEng1982.

@muncrief And exactly by telling me that you actually fixed a very different problem of mine with a script that downloads everything except the AUR packages using ASP/ABS and compiles the lot from scratch whilst using my custom CFlags so thank you a lot for that, works like a charm and gave me a new perspective on that.

muncrief commented on 2020-12-14 22:16

Yes, that's correct @DanEng1982.

Arch packages end in .pkg.tar.xz. So the "sudo pacman -U *.pkg.tar.xz" command will install all the packages without you having to specify them manually. You can also use "makepkg -si" which installs the packages automatically after compilation, but you have to be watching for when the compilation completes because you need to enter your superuser password before the prompt times out.

But don't worry, even if you're not watching and it times out you can still use pacman -U. I don't use the "-si" option because I like to look at the final compilation output before installing, but that's just a matter of personal preference.

@muncrief, I am just using yay -S linux-mainline linux-mainline-headers linux-mainline-docs but I will try your suggestions, makes sense to me. So from my understanding pacman -U *.pkg.tar.xz is installing the compiled and compress binary, correct?

muncrief commented on 2020-12-14 20:58

@DanEng1982, are you compiling with "makepkg -s" in a terminal or using pamac? I sometimes have issues with pamac so if you're using that I'd try the terminal. Just open one up and enter "yay -G linux-mainline && cd linux-mainline && makepkg -s". If everything compiles execute "sudo pacman -U *.pkg.tar.xz" to install it.

I just checked and noticed that I'm on Sphinx 3.3.1-3 already. Is there anything else I can try to do?
