(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].

Just wanted to say that In regards to jmandawg and markzz that I have been updating by just changing the versions for about a week now (starting with 5.0-1) with no unexpected behaviour or side effects. Although I should state I haven't done any deep testing outside of just running my normal vms etc.

markzz commented on 2019-03-24 04:26

jmandawg: You can certainly try just changing the PKGBUILD with no new patches, but I would bet on the fact that the current patches will not work. The issue is, it's on my list of things I have to get done, but that list has grown in the last few months to the point where I'm trying to catch up. No ETA at this moment.

EDIT: I take it all back, it looks like the patches did apply, so I'm running a build and will quickly test it tomorrow.

Thanks for the great work, 5.0.x coming anytime soon? Or is it safe to change the _srcver and rebuild?

The latest version (4.19.8-arch1-1-vfio) has build error due to patch:

drivers/pci/quirks.c:4617:28: error: ‘pci_acs_overrides’ undeclared here (not in a function); did you mean ‘pcie_acs_overrides’? { PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, pci_acs_overrides }, ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ pcie_acs_overrides

I have pushed something that the patches apply, but I haven't tested the package itself.

You shouldn't have any troubles using the patch in your sources for 4.19.8. Built and tested it myself with linux from the core repo. If you'd like, I can help keep this maintained.

archqemu: I try to keep up to date with regards to whatever version is in [core]. The problem is, on version releases (e.g. 4.14 -> 4.15), I often have to rewrite the patches (this isn't normally a problem on patch releases like 4.16.7 -> 4.16.8). Because I'm both a full time student and work full time as a software engineer, I am sometimes unable to set aside enough time to update the patches and I get to it when I can. The semester is almost over at the time of this comment, so I should be able to set aside time for sure then, if not sooner.

okay cool, thanks for your quick reply!

I was just curious if there is any systematic release schedule related to the kernel releases.

archqemu: When it's done.
