I still didn't have time to make a 4.11-rt, but will do when I get the time to build and test. Normally I skip the first few releases of the rt kernel to avoid problems, but it's getting time to do this.

@jhernberg: Thank you, it seems quite simple indeed. I actually learned on the Arch forum that building package in a chroot is the right way to go, even though it's usually not needed. So it's not a bug if a package won't build in a normal environment.

I'll let you know when I have time to do that.

@zappathustra: It's quite easy, you install the devtools package, and then instead of running makepkg (or others) to build the package, you run the extra-x86_64-build command in the dir containing the PKGBUILD. This will install all the needed dependencies in a chroot and then build the package.

@jhernberg: Not sure I want (nor know how) to do that; for the moment I'll ask on the Arch forum. If anything interesting emerges, I'll post here.

@zappathustra: Sorry for the late answer, but just don't have enough time lately.. No idea about that error, but I find it strange that it builds on my machine and not on yours.. Maybe try to build it in a chroot using extra-x86_64-build from the devtools package?

Trying to compile today, but compilation dies with:

kernel/watchdog_hld.c: Dans la fonction « watchdog_overflow_callback »:
kernel/watchdog_hld.c:112:3: error: déclaration implicite de la fonction « printk_kill »; vouliez-vous utiliser « printk_emit » ? [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]

The French part means "implicit declaration of function "printk_kill"; did you mean "printk_emit"?"

I could probably compile with -Wno-error so that warnings aren't considered errors, but maybe it's not wise?

Thanks jhernberg!!
That worked beautifully! The system was actually trying to compile it on swap memory. But your command saved the installation!

I actually made some tweakings in threadirq, cpufreq and noatime. Got a real music production machine now! :)
(I'm using on a i5 machine)
This kernel is a must-have for producers! Thank you guys!!

@ToxicAvenger: No need for threadirq. Cpufreq might depend on your hardware, fwiw I use pstate on my i7 cpus with no problem. No atime maybe on hdd, don't think it would matter at all on sdd. About grub I don't know, but make sure that it has an entry to boot the rt kernel.

Regarding building, maybe try something like "makepkg -ci" in the PKGBUILD dir. This will build the package, clean up and finally install.

Just got an error right in the end, in the "make" step.
It says I don't have space available on the device:

drivers/message/fusion/mptctl.ko: final close failed: Não há espaço disponível no dispositivo
make[1]: *** [scripts/Makefile.modpost:125: drivers/message/fusion/mptctl.ko] Error 1
make: *** [Makefile:1123: modules] Error 2

How can I compile this kernel in other location? I used pamac in order to this, but pamac won't ask you for a specific location when compiling. Actually where is "drivers/message/fusion"?? I dont think this is in my HD. And my HD has lots of space, 460GB. How to solve this? Thanks in advance.

Just a noob question:

After installing the rt kernel, do I still need to:
- Add threadirq parameter to kernel?
- Set cpufreq to performance?
- Add noatime to fstab?
- Use the command "# grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg"?

I'm guessing that I should edit grub files to make sure that the rt kernel is the default kernel to boot, but I dunno about these above.
