Tired of compiling? Use this binary repo instead! Add this at the end of /etc/pacman.conf :

Server =$repo/$arch
SigLevel = Optional TrustAll

My pipelines need a real git repo for automation and integration, not a flat tarball.

Thanks alot again

It performs really well because it has zero compatibility with anything but my pc, which is mzen2 :-) I'm sorry, this kernel is only for testing purposes and testing my pipelines. Its not meant to be tailored to peoples wishes :)

Not sure why your config wont work for bluetooth... could be a million reasons...

The cpu types are added by a gentoo patch, its not vanilla: I only work manually with config files, I dont use menus and tui helpers. It probably wont show up in there.

Hi. I really like your linux-slim. it performs really well on my desktop. However, seems that wifi and bluetooth is disabled. Tried copying the config from my /proc and tried compiling and enabling wireless and bluetooth but still not getting active. I also find out that I cannot choose cpu version under cpu type option. Sorry still fairly new to compiling.

Anyway, what are the chances for you to issue slim version with wireless and bluetooth? And how do you get that option for setting specific cpu? I also installed linux-amd and found out that you set amdryzen3 on that one and slim is ryzen2.

I reverted the "doorbell" amdgpu commits (on this personal test kernel) which causes SIENNA to stay on max clock all the time.

Oh, this kernel is just the kernel I run on my pc, it only supports amd/radeon modern desktop hardware. I just publish this kernel for debug purposes, since it autotests my build pipelines each build, and sends back useful info for feedback. For full feedback/test I need a full run, so this actually includes an AUR publish.

This is why it has "zero compatibility" in the description; its not really meant for the general public, but people are welcome to try it on (it really is a lightweight kernel!) .

This kernel has also been useful in the past for spotting module problems: This kernel has got zero bagage, and barely has enough to run on my testsystem. comparing problems with this (core only) kernel with a fully feautured one (or vice versa) can reveal alot of info surrounding a problem. (like when the problem lies in a non-core module)

Im glad that you are so interested, but long story short, this kernel is probably more usefull to me than it is to you :-)

This one: The znver2 variant has a clear description why it exists, but its not so clear what the slimmed version actually provides, or left out.

eggz commented on 2021-02-15 20:42 (UTC)

You will have to specify "amd kernels".

jogai commented on 2021-02-15 20:19 (UTC)

Whats the difference with your linux-amd kernels?
