NOTE: Kernel 4.15 will make this aur pkg obsolete.

Pre-compiled binaries and instructions to add repo at

Linux-LTS 4.1 is still maintained, if you so wish. I've heard there are no mic issues. >

No reason they shouldn't add by default. Does sound work with 4.14?

@duffydack: I did pacaur -S linux-mainline. Tho I'll just wait till 4.15 arrives. I'm guessing it will be enabled by default when that's out.

@MakiXx: depends what files you are using. How are you compiling, how did you make the config file, does the config have CONFIG_SND_SOC_INTEL_SST_TOPLEVEL and CONFIG_SND_SOC_INTEL_CHT_BSW_MAX98090_TI_MACH enabled. Stick to 4.14. When 4.15 is released you should be able to use the main arch version.

So I built Linux 4.15-rc2 and it still doesn't work. It was my first time building Linux and I definitely booted into linux-mainline with GRUB however, I just came back here to read that I need to change a config file?

I'm not sure if I can do this after I've already built Linux or if I have to rebuilt with the config set. Thanks in regard.

It's happening. We'll be able to use arch stock kernel from 4.15. I just compiled 4.15rc1 with newer drivers enabled, sound works.

Looks like we'll be able to use arch main kernel again from 4.15. <-- I tried those patches, they work, and they are merged into 4.15.

There is just 1 obscure kernel config option that, for now, needs disabling to get sound. It might not be an issue when 4.15 comes around.

@pounce: I tested it while I was using R/W Legacy bios and it did the same for me, shutdown/rebooted. I was curious about UEFI firmware since I never boot into chromeOS anymore, so I flashed it. Best thing I ever did. Boots faster, and suspend works.

Since updating `systemctl suspend` has caused a shutdown. Updating to recent `linux-firmware` packages desn't solve this.

@jskier: Just flashed uefi. Used systemd-boot, little faster boot and proper console res from start. nice

@duffydack yes sir, works great with this package. Haven't found any issues. I don't have a need for ChromeOS, so I just removed it. I don't need to press CTRL-L and switching to grub2 (for better EFI support) the countdown works. I'd highly recommend it if you don't need ChromeOS.
