Please, check new release. You have now several variables to enable/disable features.


## Disable NUMA since most users do not have multiple processors. Breaks CUDA/NvEnc.
## Archlinux and Xanmod enable it by default.
## Set variable "use_numa" to: n to disable (possibly increase performance)
##                             y to enable  (stock default)
if [ -z ${_numa+x} ]; then
## For performance you can disable FUNCTION_TRACER/GRAPH_TRACER. Limits debugging and analyzing of the kernel.
## Stock Archlinux and Xanmod have this enabled.
## Set variable "use_tracers" to: n to disable (possibly increase performance)
##                                y to enable  (stock default)
if [ -z ${_tracers+x} ]; then
## Enable PDS CPU scheduler by default
## Set variable "use_pds" to: n to disable (stock Xanmod)
##                            y to enable
if [ -z ${_pds+x} ]; then

Personally I'm running now xanmod kernel compiled with this:

env _tracers=0 _numa=0 _pds=1 makepkg -s

Also, you can now put a file in your local repo to build this package with a custom config. You have to call this file myconfig.


  # Put the file "myconfig" at the package folder to use this feature
  if [ -f "${startdir}/myconfig" ]; then
    msg2 "Using user CUSTOM config..."
    cp -f "${startdir}"/myconfig .config

@rela good catch. Fixed. Thanks!

PKGBUILD needs changes lines 14 and 16:

Valid microarchitectures are now between 0 to 38 and native is 38.

I don't know why you have issues with sound... Check in config if there is something disabled, but could be another thing. If you use pulseaudio, should work... Kernel detects and load Intel module. Do you see something related in dmesg?

@figue, running linux-clear right now, here's the output with sound working:

I use pulseaudio-alsa as well

@gatlinnewhouse what is your soundcard and what module use?

gatlinnewhouse commented on 2019-10-29 19:36

ye, I get audio issues on this as well.

Might be a kernel config issue. Gonna recompile and try something

figue commented on 2019-10-27 21:08

rt boots fine, but I can only test that...

gatlinnewhouse commented on 2019-10-27 21:05

@figure that's funny, ill try it out sometime this week

figue commented on 2019-10-27 16:50

@gatlinnewhouse thanks for asking. In fact, I have a new package linux-xanmod-rt (based on which I have just published. I was planing to test before make it public but I haven't time... So will be thankful if you try yourself and report in comments:

gatlinnewhouse commented on 2019-10-27 14:45

Any plans to add a variable for "real-time Linux kernel (PREEMPT_RT)" compiling?
