I have placed this kernel on the 5.4 kernel version with intend of staying there (since 5.4 is expected to be an LTS release)

If you have newer AMD (CPU!) hardware, I welcome you to use my aur/linux-amd package, but for raven ridge, this is the end of the line.

Tired of compiling? Use this binary repo instead! Add this at the end of /etc/pacman.conf :

[linuxkernels]
Server = http://nhameh.ovh/$repo/$arch
SigLevel = Optional TrustAll

Please see the warning here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Kernel/Arch_Build_System#Modifying_the_PKGBUILD

Uhm, you're welcome, but the faster compression and decompression of the kernel's ramdisk has got nothing to do with your DE's memory leak.

This was just a general improvement..

Alright. I'll give it a try and then I'll report my results after a while. Thank you so much! <3

I have added 'COMPRESSION="lzop"' in the mkinitcpio preset of this kernel. I find this balanced compression for the ramdisk alot faster for installing, and booting from it. Please check your preset file in /etc/mkinitcpio.d/ to make sure that this change is adopted (as there is probably a pacsave file created there instead). Also make sure you have lzop installed.

I forgot to mention that kwin_x11 is usually the process that consumes a lot of RAM. I say usually since plasmashell is also another process that can take a lot of RAM for no apparent reason. It seems like disabling all of my eye candy in kwin makes no difference.

@bulio,

Thank you for the kind words. I am amazed that my kernel could trigger a memory leak somewhere on a specific DE. Though when that happens, shouldn't it be very easy to pinpoint where its coming from? you know, like $(ps aux|sort -n -k4| tail) or something?

Hi! I really love this kernel since it's the only one I can use without ever having a black screen after suspending my laptop and also it's the only one where TLP doesn't give me issues with my WiFi. However I have one issue with Plasma. It seems like after suspending my system, it starts consuming more and more RAM the more times I suspend it. It only happens when I boot with this kernel. It doesn't happen at all with the normal LTS or the stable one. It's such a weird thing so I have to reboot every couple of days or my system starts consuming 3.5GB+ of RAM without doing anything at all. I don't have this issue when I use i3-gaps. I think I should test other DEs to see if I have issues in those as well. Thank you so much for this kernel :)

@ejohn Thanks for your kind words! I'll try to keep it up. :-)

Hello eggz, thank for all your work, I think the kernel is working really great in my setup. I installed it and ran a game and thought the performance improved.

Thanks and if I can help in anyway just ask.

Small update: I declared the linux.install file, it was a bit confusing it was not in the sources list (but it was in the git so the PKGBUILD could still use it) I also trimmed some more stuff.

take care, guys.
