The prebuilt kernel is built using Clang/LLVM 16.

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
sudo pacman-key --lsign-key E9C2DECAC962CB3AF1376D44148A9E3C9C3E3BF0

@Korialo As you already mentioned, the configs are enabled. I didn't see the edit until now. Perhaps you need to add the elan_i2c module to your mkinitcpio.conf in MODULES so that it gets loaded early?

superboringdev commented on 2023-07-24 15:02 (UTC)

@Korialo Yes, that's the same thing you asked for. As I said, I'll enable the configs soon.

@superboringdev thank you for your quick reply, also I found this in the Linux-Clear github maybe related?

@Korialo sure, I'll enable MOUSE_PS2_ELANTECH_SMBUS and MOUSE_ELAN_I2C_SMBUS in the next release.

Can you enable this:

psmouse serio1: elantech: The touchpad can support a better bus than the too old PS/2 protocol. Make sure MOUSE_PS2_ELANTECH_SMBUS and MOUSE_ELAN_I2C_SMBUS are enabled to get a better touchpad experience.

since I can't see any option to do it in PKGBUILD, as in a way to mo Kconfig, ...etc. Thanks.

Edit: NVM, I checked the .config both are enabled, by default. I wonder why this message appears in my journal.

@superboringdev awesome, thank you!

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

superboringdev commented on 2021-11-23 22:50 (UTC)

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.
