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

Server =$repo/$arch
SigLevel = Optional TrustAll

It fails with my dkms modules:

@eggz Yes its my first custom kernel install, all I did was install the aur package then restarted. Right now I saw that I have some updates to do and linux-amd-znver2 5.10.v.13-1 is also updating. I'll try the grub config after, thank you!

eggz commented on 2021-02-04 07:55

ehm.. did you run grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg ? and then pick the new kernel? Is this your first custom kernel install or not?

drlobes commented on 2021-02-04 07:44

Well it did install without any errors, but after restart uname -a still shows the kernel I normally have, is there anything else I need to do?

Even more triviatime: aur/linux-amd is currently standing by to be optimised for znver3 (RYZEN 5000 Desktop Series). For now, they are "equal". I will try to use linux-amd to always represent the "upstream" tech, so the latest architecture. Linux-amd will most likely continue working fine for ALL ryzen hardware though on the surface.

znver2 is the name of the AMD Ryzen Zen2 microarchitecture meaning this is a highly optimized Kernel that, if you have an AMD Ryzen CPU, can be used for gaming, audio/video and things like that.

Just for the newbies asking stupid questions, like me: what is znver?

That was fast! I rebuilt the package it looks like it did the trick, awesome work

Thanks again for making and maintaining this build!

Kryesh, thanks to your clear indications, I found the problem.

The "order" you are withnessing with linux-zen (and not with my kernel) is because of the "/usr/share/libalpm/hooks/90-mkinitcpio-install.hook" pacman hook.

Apperantly, it expects the vmlinuz to be also (next to /boot obviously) written to /usr/lib/modules/*/vmlinuz. I adapted the packaging to do this, to respect this particular pacman hook.

For me, this extra copy seems to the trick (and the declaration of the "pkgbase" since this particular hook seems to need that).

Let me know the results.

hey there, thx for letting me know.

there are no real diffrences between my linux.install file and the (hidden, but still on the git of) linux-zen.install file, we both call depmod and then do a mkinicpio in that order.

please note that you are comparing an upgrade to a reinstall, though I do think you are still on to something here.

I'll take a look at this interesting topic when I have the time.

Thanks again.
