Please, check new release. You have now 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=99 use_numa=n use_tracers=n use_pds=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: 99 => 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

## 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 ${use_tracers+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

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

env use_numa=n use_tracers=n 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 (this will take preference) or "${XDG_CONFIG_HOME}/linux-xanmod/myconfig"
  # If we detect partial file with scripts/config commands, we execute as a script
  # If not, it's a full config, will be replaced

thanks figue. one question: why pahole and python are needed as makedepend?

Thanks @enihcam I pushed the wrong PKGBUILD, because I have adapted the code but forgot to push to aur :|

-> Setting version... Usage: scripts/setlocalversion [--no-local] [srctree] ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare(). Aborting... error: failed to build 'linux-xanmod-lts-6.6.17-1': error: packages failed to build: linux-xanmod-lts-6.6.17-1

any ideas?

Updated script

Check new microarchitectures supported!

Turns out, I needed to have xterm installed. One would think it would have been installed by default.

@MikeDee _makenconfig=y opens the ncurses menu interface so you can customize your kernel in the traditional way. It seems you are launching the makepkg from some unknown terminal "Error opening terminal: unknown". If you are using some AUR helper or chroot, probably isn't compatible with nconfig or you are not setting TERM variable in your shell.

The package won't build for me:

configuration written to .config

arch/x86/Makefile:179: CONFIG_X86_X32 enabled but no binutils support -> Prepared linux-xanmod-lts version 5.15.72-xanmod1-1-lts UPD scripts/kconfig/nconf-cfg HOSTCC scripts/kconfig/nconf.o HOSTCC scripts/kconfig/nconf.gui.o HOSTLD scripts/kconfig/nconf Error opening terminal: unknown. make[1]: [scripts/kconfig/Makefile:48: nconfig] Error 1 make: [Makefile:619: nconfig] Error 2 ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare(). Aborting...

If _makenconfig=y, then the it fails. If_makenconfig=n, then it works.

@figue i submitted a request to xanmod owner. it looks like LTS came back for now.

figue commented on 2022-10-16 12:24 (UTC)

@enihcam yes, I see. Let me confirm and, at the end, I'll request package removal.

enihcam commented on 2022-10-16 05:57 (UTC)

@figue, xanmod no longer maintains LTS.
