GCC11.1 is mainlined in arch, so this means znver3 support can kick off on this kernel. The graysky compile patches have been updated too.

This kernel now natively supports the znver3 arch, but this kernel will most likely keep working on all AMD ryzen hardware. It's better to be able to address certain small perks or issues per architecture now and in the future.

If you use znver2 based hardware, please use linux-amd-znver2
If you use raven based hardware, please use linux-amd-raven

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

Server =$repo/$arch
SigLevel = Optional TrustAll

@Moo, no swearing and slander please. You have been warned.

Moo-Crumpus commented on 2021-08-05 06:35

Why does this kernel pull mkinitcpio? Think about booster and dracut, it should the users choice, not the kernels.

g99 commented on 2021-07-30 08:58

subjectively, this kernel feels much snappier / faster than stock Manjaro on Picasso zen+ that is zen_ver_1

graysky commented on 2021-07-22 14:22

No problem

eggz commented on 2021-07-22 13:53

I believe this should do it. Thank you again for all your work, Graysky.

eggz commented on 2021-07-22 12:34

woops, unless you update your patch before I update my kernel. Good point! OK, I will implement tagging.

eggz commented on 2021-07-22 12:26

@Graysky My pipeline autoupdates the sha256sum in the PKGBUILD each build. I dont need to do anything for that, it is all done automatic for me each kernelversion increase, or whenever I feel like building. I will never post an outdated sha256sum.

graysky commented on 2021-07-22 12:08

Only problem is if I update the patch, your checksums will be wrong since I do not iterate the file name. This is why you should download the tagged version.

@Graysky Thank you for bringing this to my attention!

I see no problem in referencing your original source in the PKGBUILD. For my upstream kernels this seems to be no problem, I already adapted the pipelines. I will now always download your latest kernel patch (master) from your git. For non upstream kernels its a bit trickier because my pipeline works more flexible with the gentoo git, since you can dynamicly pick kernelversions there by branchname. But I will still mention you there. Thanks again and if there is anything else, just let me know.

The patch you're shipping (5010_enable-cpu-optimizations-universal.patch) is my more-uarches-for-kernel-5.8+.patch:

It's fine to pull it from gentoo's git repo, just suggesting that you hit mine directly. Look at how linux-ck does it if you want to, or just keep using gentoo as your upstream source.
