The prebuilt kernel is built using Clang/LLVM 13/14.

The linux-nitrous binary package can be installed by adding following lines to your /etc/pacman.conf:

Server =

Then you can install the package using your AUR helper or pacman (e. g. sudo pacman -Syu linux-nitrous linux-nitrous-headers)

You probably need to add the keys before being able to install my packages:

sudo pacman-key --recv-keys E9C2DECAC962CB3AF1376D44148A9E3C9C3E3BF0 7C7F91F272AD51C385FF87B4147FB04303EE8743
sudo pacman-key --lsign-key E9C2DECAC962CB3AF1376D44148A9E3C9C3E3BF0 7C7F91F272AD51C385FF87B4147FB04303EE8743

@superboringdev awesome, thank you!

I enabled the NTFS3 module including ACL and LZX support. Next release will have it.

Sure, I'll take a look when I get some time for it, probably within a week.

Would it be possible to have the ntfs3 module with lzx compression added to the binary distribution of this kernel? ntfs3 is stable now and in the mainline kernel. There's a dkms package for it in the AUR but it's a backport and only maintained for compatibility now that ntfs3 is mainline.

@d00d00 I'm glad it works for you now and I appreciate your feedback :)

@superboringdev, works great now! Thanks for your work maintaining the package!

superboringdev commented on 2021-11-16 17:43 (UTC)

@d00d00 it's fixed now.

@d00d00 thank you for your feedback. I'm aware of the issue and a patch is going to be released as soon as possible. In the meantime you can edit /usr/lib/modules/linux-nitrous-5.12.2-2/build/Makefile and remove the two lines with flags containing "retpoline" to make it work with Clang.

You will need to run the dkms commands again.

This package and the binary are both broken for me at present (linux-nitrous-5.15.2-2). DKMS fails to build anything because it is attempting to pass the -mretpoline flag to GCC and GCC doesn't recognize it. So something is still wrong with the lto & Clang/DKMS compatibility patch stuff. I managed to compile linux-nitrous from source with GCC instead of Clang and it fixed the DKMS issue.

@shoui sorry for the late reply. I can't reproduce your issue. Could you provide more details on the console output?
