The new release 0.6.8-2 applies the patch you mentioned. Thanks for finding that. It fixed a startup crash I've been having for a while on one system where rasdaemon detected the wrong number of CPU cores. From what I can tell it mostly affects AMD systems.

Here, rasdaemon crashes at startup since the linux kernel v6.0.8. This patch fixes the issue :

I don't know if this is causing your problems, but there's an issue with rasdaemon and the linux kernel starting with 6.0.5. It apparently is patched for the upcoming 6.0.8 kernel release.

I haven't seen any of the problems people have been reporting, so it's probably best to report them upstream if you haven't already.

The PKGBUILD does enable a couple of features listed as experimental on the github page (PCIe AER and MCE events). It might be worth building a version without those features and testing that.

@xamino, @axzxc1236: I'm also seeing weird interference. In my case, I lost both wifi and bluetooth (same card - Intel ax200) at first, and then after upgrading to 6.0.7 kernel pacman was unable to download files. Uninstalling rasdaemon fixed both of these issues.

I can confirm on a pure Arch machine – spent a day fighting to get back to a graphical interface. Looking at the logs there may have been a kernel exception, so this might be tied to the newest Linux kernel. GDM refused to start up, couldn't switch to TTY, shutdown also didn't really work, etc. I stopped it and everything started working again.

Tested on a fresh installation of EndeavourOS xfce installation (I know it not pure Arch but I would like to share feedback)

From my observation this package is unusable:

  1. rasdaemon.service interferes with lightdm somehow, I can't get any graphical login screen by changing TTY.

  2. rasdaemon.service refuses to shutdown, blocks shutdown process, and won't stop even after normal 90 seconds service timeout.

@eta-carinae thanks

There's an error in this command called by configure to test gcc:

gcc -march=native -O2 -pipe -fno-plt -fexceptions -Wp,-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2, D_GLIBCXX_ASSERTIONS -Wformat -Werror=format-security -fstack-clash-protection -fcf-protection -Wl,-O1,--sort-common,--as-needed,-z,relro,-z,now conftest.c

The problem is with this section:


This should read:


This is probably coming from your /etc/makepkg.conf. The -D_GLIBCXX_ASSERTIONS portion was moved in the latest pacman upgrade, so maybe there was a problem when you merged the new version of makepkg.conf?
