(4.14.5+) Because Arch itself has dropped i686 support, I have removed i686 from the PKGBUILD and there is no config file either.

cinna: None of those functions in the call trace are in the patches that this kernel provide. I would either file a bug with Arch or with upstream.

I'm having a similar issue as zatricky where a VM refuses to launch when I have a dedicated gpu attached. Here's a relevant dmesg when I attempt to launch it. As for my hardware I'm running a Ryzen processor with a dedicated GPU for my host and another for my VMs

zatricky: Are you using an Intel iGPU for the host? Also, some relevant dmesg output would be helpful.

Latest package 4.15.1-1 resulted in sporadic errors from libvirtd when attempting to launch VM with dedicated GPU: Feb 08 22:08:04 <hostname> libvirtd[612]: 2018-02-08 20:08:04.406+0000: 612: error : virNetSocketReadWire:1808 : End of file while reading data: Input/output error</hostname>

Other VMs (not using GPU) were functional. From the moment I attempted to start the dedicated-GPU VM, virsh commands would no longer complete and virt-manager would become unresponsive.

Downgraded to 4.14.11-1 - all is working again.

  • AMD Radeon R9 380

Sorry about the lack of updates (if only I had unlimited time). I am currently building and testing 4.15 and you can expect it by this coming Friday.

EDIT: It is up and I need i915 users to tell me if everything's okay.

Hiya, how can I use this kernel on Manjaro Linux? ty

I use Nvidia cards and Intel hardware and in order to get it working - ACS patch is required. Therefore AGESA update will not eliminate for ACS.

cinna commented on 2017-12-05 17:29

The NPT patch is included in the kernel as of 4.13.3 for you AMD people. When the upcoming AGESA update releases we probably won't even need this ACS patch anymore either ^_^

markzz commented on 2017-12-03 00:46

Almost always a minor release causes the patches to need to be rewritten. I'll be getting on this soon.
