@jhernberg: this is really minor - just my laziness to edit the pkgbuild ;-)
I could raise it upstream, but I don't think the official kernel maintainers want to encourage users to use the localmodconfig option. Otherwise they would probably have already enabled support for modprobedb:

@Gimmeapill: Is it really important? I like to track the main distro kernel buildscript as closely as possible. Could you maybe ask for it to be added to the -ARCH kernel, like that I'll add it here too. On the other hand it seems a small thing, so if you really really want it, I suppose I can add it..

Minor feature request: to add a commented out option line 115 for "make localmodconfig"

@ronjouch: Been looking at the kernel buildsystem, but I don't think that's the guilty party, maybe something goes wrong reading the load or so. Will drop this as I have many other things to do ;) If you want to I suggest you report the problem of building the kernel when using "-j -l6" to the kernel mailing list. Happy we found the problem though, now I'm just wondering what problem yagojrocket had.

@jhernberg alright. Didn't know chrt, trying it; thanks for the tip!

jhernberg commented on 2016-04-07 20:15

I'm not quite sure, but it fails on my machine too. I guess you might have found a bug...;) I find that the "-j -l6" is strange, it makes my system sluggish at times, and takes forever to build. I'd recommend using "chrt -i 0 makepkg" (or yaourt or whatever you use instead). Makes the whole build process run as idle priority, so runs nearly full throttle, except when you need the cpu for other stuff.

@jhernberg build succeeded with a default MAKEFLAGS :) . Thanks! I'm rather new to building C programs, can you help me understand what caused my "-j -l6" (I have eight cores) to fail?

@ronjouch: Can you install devtools, unpack the linux-rt source package somewhere and then run sudo extra-x86_64-build? This will create a chroot and install all needed packages into /var/lib/archbuild. Like that you are sure that everything needed to build is properly installed. If that works, you might have some problem with the openssl package on your system. Otherwise build with MAKEFLAGS="-j1" (/etc/makepkg.conf), I think the missing header file is generated earlier in the build process, and it's hard to tell what is going on with parallel build threads...

@Gimmeapill: Check out this paper:

@jhernberg hmmm no I think disk space is fine, it builds in /tmp which has 8GB left. Maybe will try without my AUR helper (yaourt).
