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

If you don't want to compile this package yourself, I am providing the package on my repo [1].

I will not update this package until I have made the necessary modifications to all patches.

Looks like the i915 vga patch is broken 5.3+, gonna have to be removed until someone produces a new modified patch to patch the patch

dszryan: put that in your makepkg.conf....................

dszryan commented on 2019-09-08 02:58

the build could do with: build() { cd $_srcname make -j $(($(cat /proc/cpuinfo | awk '/^processor/{print $3}' | wc -l) + 1)) bzImage modules }

to speed the build up, #jobs = #processors + 1

what do you think?

Just wanted to comment to thank ironicbadger and also confirm their findings I was having issues in particular with discord and FF14(FFXIV) crashing and losing sound randomly rolling back to 4.19-20 via LTS package appears to have fixed these issues.

I was running into some issues with 5.2.1 kernel today in a Windows 10 guest where 3d apps (such as Firefox, Chrome and Fusion 360) would just randomly quit.

According to my research I found the following on the VFIO discord

A new bug in kernel 5.2 is causing KMODE_EXPECTION_NOT_HANDLED and other anomalies for some people. A few folks reporting artifacting/crashing issues on 5.1 say that issue persists on 5.2 as well, but this is may be a different bug. Root cause of both issues remains unknown currently. Rollback to the last known good or LTS kernels.

I downgraded to 4.19.x via the linux-vfio-lts package and stability returned to my guest. Hope this helps someone out.

If this is a requirement for you, you will need to add this patch yourself when you build.

Any chance to add the Agesa Patch?

I am getting the following build error:

 Extension error:
Could not import extension kerneldoc (exception: cannot import name 
'AutodocReporter' from 'sphinx.ext.autodoc' (/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/sphinx/ext/autodoc/

As the same here:

Following those patch instructions I deleted some lines in the PKGBUILD and I'm now compiling.

PiMaker101: One of the goals of this package is to model it after the standard linux package in the official repositories. This includes configuration options. This does not, however, stop you from changing the config yourself when you build it though.
