I want to apologize because I pushed the package to the EDGE version by mistake. For now, I'll keep at EDGE but the idea is to keep this package following the Stable Mainline [MAIN] branch. Probably for the next release I'll make a new package for the edge. Same for all -bin packages.

Thank you to understand.

This package have several variables to enable/disable features.

## The following variables can be customized at build time. Use env or export to change at your wish
##   Example: env _microarchitecture=98 use_numa=n use_tracers=n makepkg -sc
## Look inside '' to choose your microarchitecture
## Valid numbers between: 0 to 99
## Default is: 0 => generic
## Good option if your package is for one machine: 98 (Intel native) or 99 (AMD native)
if [ -z ${_microarchitecture+x} ]; then

## 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 ${use_numa+x} ]; then

## Since upstream disabled CONFIG_STACK_TRACER (limits debugging and analyzing of the kernel)
## you can enable them setting this option. Caution, because they have an impact in performance.
## Stock Archlinux has this enabled. 
## Set variable "use_tracers" to: n to disable (possibly increase performance, XanMod default)
##                                y to enable  (Archlinux default)
if [ -z ${use_tracers+x} ]; then

# Unique compiler supported upstream is GCC
## Choose between GCC and CLANG config (default is GCC)
## Use the environment variable "_compiler=clang"
if [ "${_compiler}" = "clang" ]; then
  _compiler_flags="CC=clang HOSTCC=clang LLVM=1 LLVM_IAS=1"

# Choose between the 4 main configs for stable branch. Default x86-64-v1 which use CONFIG_GENERIC_CPU2:
# Possible values: config_x86-64-v1 (default) / config_x86-64-v2 / config_x86-64-v3 / config_x86-64-v4
# This will be overwritten by selecting any option in microarchitecture script
# Source files:
if [ -z ${_config+x} ]; then

# Compress modules with ZSTD (to save disk space)
if [ -z ${_compress_modules+x} ]; then

# Compile ONLY used modules to VASTLY reduce the number of modules built
# and the build time.
# To keep track of which modules are needed for your specific system/hardware,
# give module_db script a try:
# This PKGBUILD read the database kept if it exists
# More at this wiki page --->
if [ -z ${_localmodcfg} ]; then

# Tweak kernel options prior to a build via nconfig
if [ -z ${_makenconfig} ]; then

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

env _microarchitecture=98 use_tracers=n use_numa=n _localmodcfg=y _compress_modules=y makepkg -sic

Also, you can now create the file myconfig in your local repo to build this package with a custom config or use ${XDG_CONFIG_HOME}/linux-xanmod/myconfig. This file can be a full kernel config or be a script with several entries to add/remove options (you have several examples in PKGBUILD by using scripts/config):

Code involved:

  for _myconfig in "${SRCDEST}/myconfig" "${HOME}/.config/linux-xanmod/myconfig" "${XDG_CONFIG_HOME}/linux-xanmod/myconfig" ; do
    if [ -f "${_myconfig}" ] && [ "$(wc -l <"${_myconfig}")" -gt "0" ]; then
      if grep -q 'scripts/config' "${_myconfig}"; then
        # myconfig is a partial file. Executing as a script
        msg2 "Applying myconfig..."
        bash -x "${_myconfig}"
        # myconfig is a full config file. Replacing default .config
        msg2 "Using user CUSTOM config..."
        cp -f "${_myconfig}" .config

@BryanLiang SourceForge was down yesterday, so patches were not available. It was fixed today.

What happened to Linux-Xanmod 6.4.15? Why it is reverted?

smn commented on 2023-08-12 18:24 (UTC)

6.4.10-1 not building with clang:

clang-15: error: optimization flag '-fexcess-precision=fast' is not supported [-Werror,-Wignored-optimization-argument]

6.4.8-1 currently not building with clang:

clang-15: error: unknown argument: '-fcx-limited-range'

clang-15: error: optimization flag '-fexcess-precision=fast' is not supported [-Werror,-Wignored-optimization-argument]

Hi @Anarconda

please don't flag out-of-date if official release is not ready yet:

figue commented on 2023-07-07 18:26 (UTC)

@duht I'll wait a bit more. Perhaps the final fix will be realeased in next minor release.

duht commented on 2023-07-07 11:59 (UTC) (edited on 2023-07-07 12:02 (UTC) by duht)

@figue firstly thank you for your support, you're doing a great job!
I installed 6.4.2-3 and VMA_LOCK is disabled here. Working for now without issues.
As you can read here Suren Baghdasaryan posted "the fix along with another less critical one" at link.
With that fix there is no need to disable vma locking anymore. Maybe you want to add this fix intsead of v4 workaround before they add this to the main kernel.

figue commented on 2023-07-06 23:42 (UTC) (edited on 2023-07-07 01:10 (UTC) by figue)

@duht I applied the patch posted, as I tested disabling in a normal way with "scripts/config --disable CONFIG_PER_VMA_LOCK", but when compilation starts it's enabled automatically again. That's why I suposed patch was the right way.

I'll wait a bit until the discussion goes a little further and look for a better patch.

Edit: Finally I added the same patch but v4 (I didn't see it last time)

Check if this workaround works for you.

duht commented on 2023-07-06 23:13 (UTC) (edited on 2023-07-06 23:30 (UTC) by duht)

@figue I'm not sure you done it right way...
If you have an existing .config this patch does nothing link.
linux-xanmod already has existing configs (config_x86-64-v*), so you should disable it in config_x86-64-v2 (as this is default in your package now), similar way as Arch did here.

Edit: I installed linux-xanmod 6.4.1-2 from chaoticaur repo and CONFIG_PER_VMA_LOCK is still enabled, conky still freezes:(

figue commented on 2023-07-06 12:47 (UTC) (edited on 2023-07-06 14:38 (UTC) by figue)

@duht thanks. I'm testing the patch

Edit: done 811e14eafebc

Also default config will be config_x86-64-v2
