Is anyone interested in testing the 5.17.y ck kernel? I'd like some broader feedback before I push it out to the AUR and to the repo. Please try it here if interested:

You can download a prebuilt package or build yourself.

Please post feedback good or bad to the repo-ck thread to keep it all in one place:

@zerophase I've been having the (arguably) same problem since very long time (see e.g., and that actually forced me to go back to the stock kernel since I never found a solution.

zerophase commented on 2022-04-14 12:31 (UTC)

Anyone else having issues getting Docker to start up with the CK kernel?

I've noticed issues with mounting archiso too.

It's not MuQSS, but the PKGBUILD now contains CK's hrtimer patch and the recommended 1000 Hz tick rate.

I'm happy to go along with @air-g4p ! Thank you very much @graysky, and all contributors and commenters.

air-g4p commented on 2021-07-22 09:09 (UTC)

@graysky - WOW!! Today marks linux-ck's 10th Birthday!

Thank you very much for all your hard work during the past decade, graysky!

Your efforts are much appreciated...

Pretty sure, delete the tar ball and re-download :p

vp1981 commented on 2021-06-11 00:19 (UTC)

@graysky, are you sure about b2sum checksum for 'more-uarches-20210610.tar.gz'? I downloaded it manually and checksum didn't match from PKGBUILD: 30d1df754608bb423cbc99c2097ad521baa091b9a3b39df4bd5c2d50c57eec54d8fa0e4a4a04b847c3d1b87ba682cadc8db45fabeefdc9ad7caaf8e77b96e41a tmp/kernel_compiler_patch-20210610.tar.gz

If the '' git repository is yours would it be feasible to use signed tags to accompany releases? In such cases signed tag would help others to simply change checksum in PKGBUILD. If it is too troublesome then don't bother with it.

snack commented on 2021-06-02 08:05 (UTC)

According to this:

the current version of docker should work with cgroups v2. So I guess it's some interplay between the CK patchset and cgroups v2 that breaks docker. Sadly, I got no reply from CK on his blog...

snack commented on 2021-05-28 06:40 (UTC)

@artafinde your suspect was correct. Setting the kernel parameter you suggested makes docker work again with linux-ck. I'm going to report this on CK's blog. Thanks.

artafinde commented on 2021-05-27 14:06 (UTC)

I suspect your issues has something to do with cgroups v2. Try to replicate the issue after setting (temporarily) systemd.unified_cgroup_hierarchy=0 as a kernel param which forces the cgroup v1 behavior.

GAZ082 commented on 2021-05-27 13:46 (UTC)

@snack had your issue and also a system freeze with the latest release. First time after almost a year of using CK. Went back to Zen.

snack commented on 2021-05-27 06:38 (UTC)

@zerophase I'm not sure. For sure it's something inside the CK patchset (since the stock and many other patched kernels work fine), and it's not MuQSS (see e.g. the comment by Steven Barret on CK's blog stating that Liquorix with MuQSS works fine). I'd need to understand if there is some hope for this to be fixed, otherwise I'll have to ditch linux-ck.

zerophase commented on 2021-05-27 02:30 (UTC)

@snack It has been a bug for awhile. I tried reporting it about a year ago, when trying to author a custom arch install disk, and got some explanation from a guy that this is not a CK issue. (Wasn't CK)

snack commented on 2021-05-26 06:04 (UTC) (edited on 2021-05-26 06:05 (UTC) by snack)

I cannot start docker containers when using the current (5.12) linux-ck-skylake kernel. I get this error:

$ docker run --rm -it -p 80:80 ckulka/baikal:nginx
docker: Error response from daemon: failed to create shim: OCI runtime create failed: container_linux.go:380: starting container process caused: process_linux.go:545: container init caused: process_linux.go:508: setting cgroup config for procHooks process caused: load program: invalid argument: unknown.

With the stock Arch kernel it works, and seemingly also with other patched kernels like Liquorix (although I didn't try by myself).

I know that it is usually suggested to post to CK's blog for this kind of issue, and in fact I did it but from there I got the advice to post to AUR...

vp1981 commented on 2021-05-19 05:45 (UTC)

graysky> GCC 11 reorders things and since GCC 11 is in [core], I updated the PKGBUILD.

That was a culprit! I updated PKGBUILD, rebuild the package (linux-ck-sandybridge) and was able to boot with linux-ck-sandybridge kernel.

elektorronikci commented on 2021-05-18 18:47 (UTC) (edited on 2021-05-18 18:47 (UTC) by elektorronikci)

@graysky, thanks for your suggestion. There is not any problem for me, I had already corrected it when I saw it on nconfig. I mentioned about it just to inform.

graysky commented on 2021-05-18 17:43 (UTC)

@graysky, no it is GCC 10.2

Right, define an updated mirror and update your system :D

elektorronikci commented on 2021-05-18 17:02 (UTC)

@graysky, no it is GCC 10.2

thaewrapt commented on 2021-05-18 16:05 (UTC)

It could also happen on automation level, where the build system is still using old IDs. I'm building for Skylake right now so I can check if it's actually built for Skylake in the end.

thaewrapt commented on 2021-05-18 16:00 (UTC) (edited on 2021-05-18 16:02 (UTC) by thaewrapt)

Yeah, as I hadn't any issues myself I wanted to suggest "a wrong architecture" source of the problem since I've noticed a change of architecture IDs in the package. For example, I've used 25 for Skylake for quite a long time but in the very last release I see it numbered as 26.

graysky commented on 2021-05-18 15:53 (UTC)

@elektorronikci - Is your system up-to-date? GCC 11 reorders things and since GCC 11 is in [core], I updated the PKGBUILD.

elektorronikci commented on 2021-05-18 15:48 (UTC) (edited on 2021-05-18 15:51 (UTC) by elektorronikci)

There is a problem in the PKGBUILD subarch configuration. When I select Haswell, it was actually Broadwell in the .config file. That may cause boot problem because of some unimplemented machine codes.

vp1981 commented on 2021-05-17 08:46 (UTC)

Ok, I posted message on ck's blog.

I suspect an issue with ck patch and GCC11 but I don't understand why newer processors (haswell and skylake specifically) work.

vp1981 commented on 2021-05-17 03:01 (UTC)

@graysky, thanks I'll do that when I finish testing. I compiled linux-ck-sandybridge 5.12.2, 5.12.3 with the same configuration as 5.12.4 (but without 0002-drm* patch applied) but both kernels didn't boot.

graysky commented on 2021-05-17 00:51 (UTC)

Recommend you post to ck's blog and see what he thinks. I have no insights.

vp1981 commented on 2021-05-17 00:19 (UTC)

Similar situation here: my notebook with Intel Core i5 2410M can't boot with linux-ck-sandybridge 5.12.4 but works fine with distro linux 5.12.4. I locally built linux-ck package (though without patch 0002-drm...) with gcc 11 and config the same as for linux package. Seems that something affects "old" processors because on other hosts with Intel processors of haswell and skylake family both linux-ck-haswell and linux-ck-skylake 5.12.4 boot fine. I didn't tried 5.12.3 version but 5.12.2 worked. I'll try to build 5.12.2 and 5.12.3 for sandybridge and report results.

GAZ082 commented on 2021-05-15 20:45 (UTC)

Had to downgrade to 5.12.1-1-ck-nehalem because linux-ck-nehalem-5.12.4-1 freezes the system at boot when "Loading initial ramdisk".

zepar commented on 2021-05-14 01:35 (UTC)


I boot to a black screen with 5.12.3-2 on a Gemini lake CPU. Version 5.12.3-1 worked fine. (i'm using the bin version).

zerophase commented on 2021-04-23 14:18 (UTC) (edited on 2021-04-23 14:22 (UTC) by zerophase)

@coderkun It's probably something to do with Linux-ck I tried mounting the archiso build system for a custom installer, a year ago, and I can't do it on Linux-ck. Works fine on the default. I told CK about, but got no response. I also received message, from someone else, accusing me of causing the problem.

I think we have the same Arch default settings, other than the CK stuff. I don't see why this would be our fault. It's probably a bug in his code.

vltr commented on 2021-04-23 14:13 (UTC)

@coderkun, I already listed that on the forums:

I'm still looking for a solution for that, btw :-)

coderkun commented on 2021-04-23 06:58 (UTC)

For a week or two I have been getting the following error when trying to start a docker container:

Error response from daemon: OCI runtime create failed: container_linux.go:367: starting container process caused: process_linux.go:495: container init caused: process_linux.go:458: setting cgroup config for procHooks process caused: can't load program: invalid argument: unknown

It work without error on Arch’s default kernel. Is anyone else experience the same and knows what the issue might be?


artafinde commented on 2021-04-22 10:00 (UTC)

@graysky: You can remove the hack for xz since 70261 is fixed.

graysky commented on 2021-04-14 15:06 (UTC)

I sure love updating my kernel 4 times in a week, lol

@powerball253- Comments like this serve absolutely no purpose. In general, this package follows the progress of the official kernel which has bumped several times in the past week.[1] Further, no one is forcing you to rebuild a kernel you opted into using in the first place. Please don't spam the comments page with such statements.

@graysky - Currently, building fails in environments with a modified SRCDEST folder. (EDIT/ For instance, mine is set to /tmp/makepkg/srcdest)

@graysky: Thanks already using it - noticed the PR from sirlucian :) Thanks!

graysky commented on 2021-04-02 10:05 (UTC)

@Zalgo - 5.11.11-3 should fix this. See the forum thread for discussion:

graysky commented on 2021-04-02 10:05 (UTC)

@artafinde - with some help, the native option now works with Intel and AMD. You will have to select the correct option though:

  33. Intel-Native optimizations autodetected by GCC (MNATIVE_INTEL) (NEW)
  34. AMD-Native optimizations autodetected by GCC (MNATIVE_AMD) (NEW)

Zalgo commented on 2021-04-02 07:20 (UTC)

Thanks for the tip :) If i figure out a way to fix the PKGBUILD that doesn't require manual untarring I'll pose it here

graysky commented on 2021-04-01 20:20 (UTC)

That's odd. Makepkg doesn't seem to be untarring the patch. If you do it manually and add that to the source array, it works as expected.

Zalgo commented on 2021-04-01 17:26 (UTC)

This currently fails on my system with

Setting config...
sed: can't read ../patch-5.11-ck1: No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare().

can anyone else reproduce? I'll test in a clean chroot

graysky commented on 2021-03-07 19:38 (UTC)

@artafinde - I need to dig deeper, but I think it will be difficult to assign a native CPU out of some configs.

For example, X86_INTEL_USERCOPY config. I do that now but no other AMD chips are listed by upstream[1].

Further, I believe AMD chips should not be in the X86_P6_NOP config[2] or X86_CMOV config[3].




artafinde commented on 2021-03-07 18:50 (UTC) (edited on 2021-03-07 18:50 (UTC) by artafinde)

@graysky checksum for the gcc kernel patch is failing - needs an update.

I noticed the changes in the patch repo and it mentions one should not use native on AMD chips. What's the reasoning behind this since the gcc 10 (and clang for what matters) can detect the cpu arch just fine:

@Krlss, same here.

@graysky, why not use Like that 0003-SUNRPC-Fix-NFS-READs-the-start-at-non-page-aligned-o.patch::

P.S. I like the beginning of commit hash ;)

Kr1ss commented on 2021-02-07 19:15 (UTC) (edited on 2021-02-07 19:18 (UTC) by Kr1ss)

That's weird... Github doesn't always serve the exact same patch !

Sometimes when you download it, the object hashes are abbreviated to 13 characters and sometimes to 14.

That's why the b2sum didn't match here, the first time.

Kr1ss commented on 2021-02-07 18:43 (UTC)

@graysky pls disregard my last comment. Seems like I had an issue with an unclean chroot.

graysky commented on 2021-02-07 18:42 (UTC)

@Kr1ss - Matches here. It is pulled as a source/not included with package.

Kr1ss commented on 2021-02-07 18:30 (UTC) (edited on 2021-02-07 18:36 (UTC) by Kr1ss)

@graysky - The checksum of 0003-SUNRPC-Fix-NFS-READs-the-start-at-non-page-aligned-o.patch doesn't match after the latest update. ;)

EDIT the file is missing from the AUR sources.

Latest update bumbed version to 5.10.13 but forgot to reset to 1 the pkgrel - not a real issue, but just a reminde for next bump.

bryanjhv commented on 2021-01-09 02:30 (UTC)

@graysky thanks for the update but... I think it's missing a $ ($pkgbase instead of just pkgbase).

graysky commented on 2021-01-09 02:07 (UTC)

@Distorted - It is undone in the PKGBUILD. Maintaining is easier if I take the Arch config as-is. See and else where in the PKGBUILD other Arch specific calls are commented out.

graysky commented on 2021-01-09 02:03 (UTC) (edited on 2021-01-09 02:07 (UTC) by graysky)

@bryanjhv - sure, 5.10.5-2

Distorted commented on 2021-01-09 00:32 (UTC)

Why is CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO=y set? It causes builds to use over 10GB in disk space.

bryanjhv commented on 2021-01-08 22:13 (UTC)

@graysky, is there possibility to change _package-headers' depends array using "$pkgbase" instead of fixed 'linux-ck'? I was building for silvermont (changing $pkgbase to linux-ck-silvermont the way some repositories provide it), and didn't notice it until installing linux-ck-silvermont-headers asked me to also install linux-ck instead of linux-ck-silvermont.

bryanjhv commented on 2021-01-08 22:05 (UTC) (edited on 2021-01-08 22:08 (UTC) by bryanjhv)

Ignoring the error would make things unpredictable. Just remove "-N" option so patch will try to reverse-apply and re-apply.

Kr1ss commented on 2021-01-03 11:14 (UTC)

@LucidComplex That would make it pass though also in situations where the patch itself fails for a different reason. Not sure if that's what you want to achieve.

LucidComplex commented on 2021-01-03 10:47 (UTC)

prepare() fails when patches have already been applied. I suppose you can append a || true to the end of patch commands in prepare() to address this.

Kr1ss commented on 2021-01-02 21:24 (UTC) (edited on 2021-01-02 22:06 (UTC) by Kr1ss)

@graysky The checksum for config doesn't match in the recent release.

EDIT/ Thank you fixing this so quickly ! :)

graysky commented on 2021-01-02 20:36 (UTC)

My bad... git push didn't respond for some reason.

Scimmia commented on 2021-01-02 19:32 (UTC)

I haven't found 5.10.4-2, but as long as linux-headers isn't in the provides array anymore, I'm fine with it.

graysky commented on 2021-01-01 14:33 (UTC)

@scimmia - Please review 5.10.4-2 and comment

Scimmia commented on 2021-01-01 14:24 (UTC)

If packages require that and aren't building against the 'linux' package, they're poorly packaged and should be fixed there, not hacked around here.

graysky commented on 2021-01-01 14:20 (UTC)

At one time there was a need to have the linux-ck-headers package provide linux-headers. Thought it had to do with other packages requiring for actual linux-headers package which is wrong if a user is running linux-ck not linux.

Scimmia commented on 2021-01-01 13:58 (UTC)

See the previous link, this should not be providing linux-headers. Packages saying they provide themselves makes no sense, either.

graysky commented on 2021-01-01 13:53 (UTC)

@Scimmia - Context? "Fixed?"

Scimmia commented on 2021-01-01 13:22 (UTC)

  3. Then @graysky accidentally fucked up something else
  4. Finally, @graysky unfucked the most recent fuck up

The bottom line: @graysky, happy to report that linux-ck 5.7.17-1 built and installed without any fuck ups! Cheers!

Working fine here.

Thx a lot @ooo & @graysky, cheers !

@ooo - Thanks for the fix. I do not have time to build/test. Can someone please verify that 5.7.17-1 works as expected?

ooo commented on 2020-08-23 11:02 (UTC) (edited on 2020-08-23 11:15 (UTC) by ooo)

@graysky Apparently the error with 5.7.17 was fixed in zen-kernel already, although I didn't test it myself yet.

See the commits from 2020-08-22 at

EDIT: Applying the fix from zen-sources actually gets a bit confusing, so to make this a little simpler, first apply this to patch-5.7-ck1, to make it apply cleanly against 5.7.17:

Then apply this to fix the build:

graysky commented on 2020-08-21 13:15 (UTC)

5.7.17 introduces some changes that break the ck1 patch. If someone wants to take a look at that and share a solution, that would be good. I am busy at the moment.

Kr1ss commented on 2020-08-07 13:02 (UTC)

@graysky I'm running 5.7.14-1-ck right now, built w/ localmodconfig.

Looks fine so far, thx.

graysky commented on 2020-08-07 12:39 (UTC)

I cannot reboot now so can someone verify that 5.7.14-ck1 is working properly for me? A small adjustment to ck1 was required.

Inexplicably, this I ran into the SHA256 issue on one of my machines but not the other. I diffed the two versions of unfuck-ck1.patch - check it out:

I think it's just a wild guess (or just my guts), but I think this might be some caching problem when downloading that particular file. Sometimes you might get it from a different server with a different content (even though this is odd, yes), but might explain why sometimes (and how inconsistently) this happens ...

@graysky and @artafinde: Thanks for trying to reproduce on your respective ends.

Inexplicably, the build completed without any PKGBUILD SHA256 modifications on my other laptop, and again running makepkg -sric. I suppose this success is consistent with @artafinde's '50% of the time' finding when running makepkg -sric.

Cheers guys...

I was able to reproduce it "consistently" only when using `makepkg -srci` but only 50% of the times.

@graysky - I will be the third person to confirm there is a SHA256 error with the unfuck-ck1-fix-suspend-to-ram.patch in PKGBUILD. `makepkg -sric` fails almost immediately due to this SHA256 validation error. In fact, if I comment out the currently existing value that ends in xxx3558 and use: 9ad11f720d4dd83ddb8876b453f4526ad35f1ff72465213764fb1d206fea0379 instead, as vltr originally noted, the build works fine. BTW, that substituted sha256 value I used matches the sha256sum of the unfuck-ck1-fix-suspend-to-ram.patch downloaded by PKGBUILD, which is why the build succeeds. 9ad11f720d4dd83ddb8876b453f4526ad35f1ff72465213764fb1d206fea0379 unfuck-ck1-fix-suspend-to-ram.patch Cheers

oldsadsongs commented on 2020-07-23 17:24 (UTC)

@graysky I was able to reproduce @vltr's report by typing 'makepkg -si' instead of 'makepkg' on a fresh git clone.

vltr commented on 2020-07-23 14:54 (UTC)

@graysky that's ODD. I always build after cleaning up the git repository (git clean -dfx) ... and the file had that signature I mentioned (hence my build failed). I cleaned (again), ran makepkg and everything went smoothly this time (with unfuck-ck1-fix-suspend-to-ram.patch signature being, indeed, 961ed94b8d905f1e901cacb08d253c4170af0a25828111b7558d9c874e923558). that's really weird ... sorry about the confusion, whatever it happened.

hi there, @graysky! just one problem with 5.7.10: the unfuck-ck1-fix-suspend-to-ram.patch has a sha256sum of value 961ed94b8d905f1e901cacb08d253c4170af0a25828111b7558d9c874e923558 in the PKGBUILD, which would not pass the validity check since the correct sha256sum should be 9ad11f720d4dd83ddb8876b453f4526ad35f1ff72465213764fb1d206fea0379. apart from that, everything works fine. thanks!

nTia89 commented on 2020-06-12 16:05 (UTC)

Above all, thanks @graysky for the change! Anyway, /tmp defaults to tmpfs with size=50% but not everybody has so much RAM. By my own, this is the biggest mistake behind that choice...

dimosd commented on 2020-06-12 15:23 (UTC)

I suggest that you disable CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO, as it was before 5.7.2. That's what I am doing in my own builds anyway to build with a 4GB /tmp.

artafinde commented on 2020-06-12 12:23 (UTC)

graysky: Got my answer:

artafinde commented on 2020-06-12 10:14 (UTC)

Kr1ss: I think devs would probably reply don't build in tmpfs (and require ~15G of space instead of ~3.5G) but that's a discussion for forums possibly :D - Thanks graysky.

Kr1ss commented on 2020-06-12 09:54 (UTC)

Thx @graysky ! I was only able to build 5.7.2-1 after blowing up /tmp to 20GiB, that's kind of ridiculous. If a user needs debug symbols they can enable them; I think most users wouldn't need'em anyways.

Cheers !

graysky commented on 2020-06-12 09:21 (UTC)

@artafinde - Fuck it, 5.7.2-2-ck1. Change my mind.

artafinde commented on 2020-06-12 09:13 (UTC)

@graysky - Agree, especially since later we strip it from the bug symbols. I raised the question in IRC but no answer. I guess forums or a bug might have better luck.

graysky commented on 2020-06-12 07:53 (UTC) (edited on 2020-06-12 08:16 (UTC) by graysky)

@artafinde - Yes, the debug stuff causes a failure on one of my machines with 16G of memory building in tmpfs (allocating 14.5G to the tmpfs partition on which the build root resides!)

This change was introduced with 5.7.2-1-arch1 here:

First question is why do we need the debug options?

"If you say Y here the resulting kernel image will include debugging info resulting in a larger kernel image. This adds debug symbols to the kernel and modules (gcc -g), and is needed if you intend to use kernel crashdump or binary object tools like crash, kgdb, LKCD, gdb, etc on the kernel. Say Y here only if you plan to debug the kernel. If unsure, say N."

msw1 commented on 2020-06-12 06:08 (UTC)

I am getting the same error with /tmp running out of space as of version 5.7.2-1.

artafinde commented on 2020-06-11 21:39 (UTC) (edited on 2020-06-11 21:43 (UTC) by artafinde)

nTia89: The default configuration changed (now we produce some debug info) which we strip on packaging and creation of vmlinuz. See config and change in 5.7.1 ( Config change comes from upstream (arch default config. PS: In my case with 16G /tmp was filled while building without any change in config or PKGBUILD. I suggest to not use tmpfs for now.

nTia89 commented on 2020-06-11 21:14 (UTC) (edited on 2020-06-11 21:17 (UTC) by nTia89)

Staring with 5.7.1, I cannot compile kernel because I run out of space on my /tmp (tmpfs with size of 6GB). Did it change anything recently?

artafinde commented on 2020-06-11 15:59 (UTC)

Getting the same error. It seems to be just that single function that seems to be missing for the compilation to finish, though.

I just added the function that was introduced in to the top part of drivers/thermal/cpufreq_cooling.c and it went through.

Not sure if anything else is missing, though, but please don't consider this a proper fix; it might be dangerous, even. I'm going with this solution, for now, because I have accepted the risk.

@graysky @superice97 thx

SuperIce97 commented on 2020-01-25 20:20 (UTC)

@Bambus89 MuQSS uses subtick accounting and tickless expiry, and thus is unaffected by the kernel's tick rate. The only thing that would change by increasing the tick rate from 100 to 1000 would be a slight increase in power consumption and a slight decrease in throughput due to increased overhead. This is why the MuQSS patches automatically set 100Hz as the default. This is talked about in the MuQSS design doc (search for "Tickless expiry"):

graysky commented on 2020-01-25 14:06 (UTC)

@bambus89- ck patchset uses this value

Bambus89 commented on 2020-01-25 10:32 (UTC)

Can you set a Option in pkgconfig for set 1000hz? Why is the kernel set to 100hz and are there benefits for 100hz?

i have set _localmodcfg=y but whenever i try to compile modprobed wont show up and i get a kernel with all the modules compile what can i do?

@Althorion -

# Note - the march=native option is unavailable by this method, use the nconfig

Tired with clean PKGBUILD and -march=native (option 31). Manual patching works just fine, no idea why.

BTW (unrelated problem, I think), I tried manually patching the sources, removing patching from the PKGBUILD, and when I put some value for _subarch=, it fails at make oldconfig—it tries giving it the value I put in _subarch= (that would be 31), thus entering the never-ending loop of wrong arguments.

Finally, I managed to successfully build the package by manual patching and giving it empty _subarch.

graysky commented on 2019-11-28 13:06 (UTC)

Need more to go on in order to reproduce. Any edits to the PKGBUILD? Which number are you selecting on the gcc patch stage?

Althorion commented on 2019-11-28 12:46 (UTC)

No, I manually cloned the package (git clone <>) and run makepkg -i on it. I tried removing the folder and re-cloning and clearing the build folder (rm -rf /tmp/makepkg/linux-ck), but to no avail.

No idea what pikaur is but if you are using an i686 fork of Arch, see man makepkg to see how to ignore the architecture or modify the PKGBUILD itself.

lockheed commented on 2019-11-23 21:11 (UTC)

How can I build this on a 32bit system? I tried it now with pikaur, but I'm getting "linux-ck, linux-ck-headers can't be built on the current arch (pentium4). Supported: x86_64"

I know Arch abandoned 32 bit, but this is a source package so I expected it could be built.

graysky commented on 2019-11-11 18:53 (UTC)

@kyak - Must have missed that when diffing official PKGBUILD vs this. Modifycation will be included in 5.3.11, thanks.

kyak commented on 2019-11-11 18:02 (UTC)

Hi graysky,

Official kernels do now install kernel image to /boot anymore:

Do you plan to follow the same path with linux-ck?

nTia89 commented on 2019-11-08 08:05 (UTC) (edited on 2019-11-08 08:05 (UTC) by nTia89)

Fixed! @sir_lucjan thank you, I tried again and now it compiles flawless. Maybe the reboot fixed the issue, since I upgraded some packages, including mkinitcpio, systemd and gcc...

sir_lucjan commented on 2019-11-07 22:15 (UTC)

mkinitcpio is not involved in the compilation of the kernel at all. It is used only to generate initramfs and it is also possible to do it with dracut.

nTia89 commented on 2019-11-07 18:16 (UTC) (edited on 2019-11-07 18:17 (UTC) by nTia89)

With latest mkinitcpio-27-2, linux-ck compilation (in real it stops before...) stucks just after patching. No errors printed, just "failed in prepare()"

sir_lucjan commented on 2019-11-03 13:11 (UTC)


It's not a linux-ck problem, it's Manjaro. Due to recent updates in Arch Linux (kmod and mkinitcpio) hooks are no longer provided in kernel only in kmod (depmod-hook) and mkinitcpio (mkinitcpio-install and mkinitcpio remove). Unfortunately, at the moment, as a Manjaro user you will not install most of the current AUR kernels and the problem lies solely with your distribution, i.e. Manjaro.

toki1990 commented on 2019-11-03 13:02 (UTC)

I'm manjaro stable repo user. linux-ck 5.3.8-4 not booting. I'm tried linux-slim 5.3.8-2 custom kernel same problem. Xanmod 5.3.8-1 not doing this. Because problem is this:

"Updating linux-xanmod initcpios... ==> Building image from preset: /etc/mkinitcpio.d/linux-xanmod.preset: 'default' -> -k /boot/vmlinuz-linux-xanmod -c /etc/mkinitcpio.conf -g /boot/initramfs-linux-xanmod.img ==> Starting build: 5.3.8-xanmod6-1-xanmod -> Running build hook: [base] -> Running build hook: [udev] -> Running build hook: [autodetect]...."

Xanmod custom kernel doing this last of compilation. Linux-ck 5.3.8-4 not doing this.

graysky commented on 2019-11-01 20:46 (UTC)

@Superice - Yes, I am ignoring that particular change. For example, the substitution will make _srcver=5.3.8-arch1 in this case whereas this package will be 5.3.8-1-ck which is fine for me.

It was interesting to see how much 'heat' my wireguard-dkms post generated, and perhaps several of us wireguard-dkms and -ck users have learned some important tips.

Bottom line = tldr version - no action is required provided that: the fou, ip_tunnel and wire modules are found within lsmod and/or modprobed-db list if you run modprobed-db.

Those 3 modules were NOT loaded within MY modprobed-db list, which was quite surprising, given that I have run wireguard-dkms and modprobed-db for a VERY LONG time!

However, once I re-ran: modprobed-db store, it found the three new modules.

Of course, during a subsequent, clean, rebuild of linux-ck, wireguard-dkms was successfully installed.

Thanks for your input graysky, and to the others who offered their comments.

laenco commented on 2019-10-30 22:38 (UTC) (edited on 2019-10-30 22:39 (UTC) by laenco)

@kwe: OK. I'll try to explain.

  1. localmodconfig disables every module, that not exactly listed in provided file

  2. the file modprobed.db filling automatically only by modules that are in memory when modprobed-db service runs.

  3. fou module did not get into the modprobed.db for some reason

  4. But it is needed as indirect dependency for wireguard-dkms

  5. when you build kernel with localmodconfig - fou module become disabled

  6. And consequent build of wireguard-dkms fails.

As I can see - the most simple way to fix such a problem - is to add fou/fou6 modules into modprobed.db manually.

Or - load them and run modprobed-db.service for the same thing.

Blame me, if I wrong, cause there is more coffee than blood in veins)

kwe commented on 2019-10-30 22:17 (UTC)

@laenco: Either I'm misunderstanding you or I have to disagree.
When digging though lsmod AFTER HAVING USED WIREGUARD (so I assume all the required modules have been loaded), I can't seem to find any specific modules that are NOT in modprobed.db. It seems to me like the part where .config is configured for the kernel compilation process is assembled in a wrong way, missing out on the loaded (!) modules. This doesn't seem to have anything to do with modprobed-db as far as I can tell (?).

laenco commented on 2019-10-30 22:13 (UTC)

@kwe: so it's look like wireguard needs fou module for dkms build/install, but does not load it during routine operations, so modprobed-db did not detect it.

You could try to add fou and fou6 modules to modprobed.db manually and rebuild.

kwe commented on 2019-10-30 22:06 (UTC)

@laenco: Here is my current system state:

$ grep -i fou ~/.config/modprobed.db
$ lsmod | grep -i fou
$ lsmod | grep -i wire
wireguard             233472  0
ip6_udp_tunnel         16384  1 wireguard
udp_tunnel             16384  1 wireguard
$ grep -i tun ~/.config/modprobed.db

When I run makepkg to extract the linux-ck src directory, I end up with this .config diff against the current running kernel config:

$ zdiff /proc/config.gz config.last 
> # CONFIG_NET_FOU is not set

laenco commented on 2019-10-30 21:51 (UTC) (edited on 2019-10-30 21:53 (UTC) by laenco)

@kwe could you check ~/.config/modprobed.db for presence of "fou"/"fou6" modules?

The question is "If localmodconfig is unable to detect fou or is it a modprobed-db detection problem"?.

kwe commented on 2019-10-30 21:28 (UTC)

@graysky I am building linux-ck with modprobed-db, and for some reason, I always end up with those configuration options being disabled. I have to re-enable them manually every single time.

graysky commented on 2019-10-30 20:11 (UTC)

@graysky - wireguard-dkms failed to build on CK with this output:

I asked the devs at #wireguard about this failure, and was told I needed to enable: CONFIG_NET_FOU

(FOU = foo over udp)

After enabling that and rebuilding linux-ck --> Success.

Per Jason's (zx2c4), the lead wireguard dev, suggestion, can you please enable CONFIG_NET_FOU by default on linux-ck?

Thanks graysky

graysky commented on 2019-10-27 14:46 (UTC) (edited on 2019-10-29 20:42 (UTC) by graysky)

@timo - OK... that is likely because your .config got tweaked due to your CC= line. I opened a flyspray shown below. See it for a solution:

timo_capa commented on 2019-10-27 14:03 (UTC)

@graysky What I did was add CC=clang before make in the PKGBUILD to use Clang as compiler.

What worked was using makepkg for compiling till it gets stuck, and then end it with make modules_install and make install from the src folder. Doesn't give a package for pacman, but works.

I've tried linux-pf the same way, though that got stuck at the same place :)

graysky commented on 2019-10-27 12:34 (UTC)

@simona - the recent failure of dkms is due to the fact that there are both a newer version of the toolchain and of the dkms packages in [testing] currently. The advice I have been given is that it always a good idea to build the kernel against [testing] to prevent version mismatch errors when toolchain packages come out of [testing] and into [core].

I need to figure out what the best option is now.

@timo_capa - I am not sure how you go about building in Clang... I am using the official Arch devtools for clean chroot building. Are you patching the kernel source with ck1?

I'm not sure if this is something you're interested in fixing, but compiling the kernel with Clang gets stuck at Installing boot image.... I'm assuming it's spamming something related to Kconfigs in the background related to GCC, as cancelling the build shows

For version 5.2.21, I think applying the sed expression sed -i -re 's/(CFLAGS[[:space:]]+)\+=/\1:=/' to the ck stuff prior to patching will avoid a patch failure in tools/objtool/Makefile.

The addition of fix_patch-5.2-ck1_for_systemd-detect-virt_containers.patch seems to cause these last 3 lines to be dropped from kernel/sched/MuQSS.c even though they are in patch-5.2-ck1 which causes a build failure.

@graysky - It now appears the issue is exclusively related to modprobed-db. My latest build worked well in a clean chroot with ccache enabled, but I used an empty _localmodcfg= statement. Of course, the build time was quite lengthy, but it worked.

Any thoughts on a workaround, or a permanent fix?

Thanks for your help graysky....

graysky commented on 2019-08-28 18:41 (UTC)

@air-g4p - I do not use ccache so I cannot comment. I will say that builds using distcc on 5.2 fail where they worked fine with 5.1. Related? The change in the chroot build might be due to the modprobed-db change I made wherein the old behavior was to call it in recall mode via sudo which was always hacky in a PKGBUILD. The current method reads the database directly which the build scripts might not allow since your homedir is outside of the build root. Try building in the chroot without using the modprobed-db enabled; that will probably work.

air-g4p commented on 2019-08-28 13:08 (UTC)

@graysky - built without issue with ccache disabled, while running makepkg -sri so what is driving that fail?

Also, why did -ck previously build (many times) without issue in a clean chroot, but now it fails?


graysky commented on 2019-08-27 19:09 (UTC)

graysky commented on 2019-08-26 21:05 (UTC)

@air-g4p - Does it build outside of the chroot? I'm thinking the chroot build script doesn't look outside of that environment and will therefore fail.

I haven't made an ISO/no idea. You could ask on CK's blog why it fails with that mount command. I do not edit beyond the changes his patchset make.

zerophase commented on 2019-08-20 00:46 (UTC)

@graysky archiso failing to build appears to be an issue with the CK kernel. No, idea what's different from Arch, as the only thing I changed was the compression algorithm used for initramfs.

Have any idea what might be causing the mount failure with CK?

zerophase commented on 2019-08-17 18:41 (UTC)

@graysky This is a forum post I made on the issue. It looks like folders under the work directory are not able to be identified as mount points. If you install archiso, and just run sudo cp -r /usr/share/archiso/configs/releng/ ~/archlive; cd ~/archlive; sudo ./ -v The issue should reproduce itself.

I just happened to decide to try the Arch kernel to see if that resolved the build failure I was receiving, and everything just built successfully. Looks like others have identified this issue in the past, but did not report it. I have a feeling it has something to do with mkarchiso.

I'm having issues getting archiso to successfully build an image when running the CK kernel. Everything builds fine with the default kernel. Is anyone else having this issue? Could it be from disabling initramfs support, other than LZ4? Is this a CK issue or archiso issue?

When I switch back to the default _subarch= with no value, the process/interaction seems suboptimal:
- it asks me choice[1-28?]:
- I choose 28
- it asks me Support for P6_NOPs on Intel chips (X86_P6_NOP) [N/y/?] (NEW)
- I choose y
- it does the modprobed-db recall (as configured)
- it asks me BT8XX GPIO abuser (GPIO_BT8XX) [N/m/y/?] (NEW)
- I choose n (why does this ask me every time?)
- it asks me Studio Evolution SE6X (SND_SE6X) [N/m/?] (NEW)
- I choose n (again, why does this ask me every time?)
- ==> Sources are ready.

@graysky - Thanks, and understood.

@zerophase - Thanks, what you said made sense, and got me thinking about my chroot. As I had been using makechrootpkg of late to build linux-ck, I completely forgot that command neither cleans, nor updates a chroot.

As soon as I built linux-ck with my typical extra-x86_64-build my chroot got cleaned and updated, which resolved all the DKMS incompatible gcc versions installation issues.

zerophase commented on 2019-07-29 19:11 (UTC)

@air-g4p if you can rollback to the last good kernel you should be able to install. The last time I had dkms issues was from updating the kernel multiple times without rebooting. On the second kernel update I usually receive a bunch of errors about the version of the kernel dkms is looking for does not exist. Pretty sure that's what is happening to you too.

graysky commented on 2019-07-29 19:06 (UTC)

I do not use dkms so I wouldn't know where to start with it.

air-g4p commented on 2019-07-29 13:34 (UTC) (edited on 2019-07-29 13:35 (UTC) by air-g4p)

@graysky - Saw these DKMS installation errors today after building -ck on my fully updated system:

My /build/make.logs show multiple instances of:

cc1: error: incompatible gcc/plugin versions cc1: error: fail to initialize plugin ./scripts/gcc-plugins/

Is there a workaround, or a solution?

@SuperIce - Right you are thanks, fixed.

@graysky The 26 should be changed to 27 in this comment in the PKGBUILD:

@nTia89 - Yes, but was waiting for 5.2.3 to incorporate that and the other 2 patches. See:

nTia89 commented on 2019-07-26 13:02 (UTC)

@graysky Don't you follow upstream changes about CONFIG_GCC_PLUGIN_STACKLEAK[1]?

@nivekuil It shouldn't. I checked the config, and "CONFIG_USER_NS_UNPRIVILEGED" is enabled.

nivekuil commented on 2019-07-14 07:18 (UTC)

Does this linux-zen bug also apply here?

graysky commented on 2019-06-17 19:05 (UTC)

@freenes - if the unpatched kernel doesn't work there is little likelihood that the MuQSS scheduler will fix it. You need to find out what's breaking it.

freenestor commented on 2019-06-17 02:06 (UTC)

@graysky @zerophase Thank you for advises. I tried 5.1.8-arch, and updated bios(my laptop model is ThinkPad T430u, bios is updated to Version: H6ETA0WW 2.18 Release Date: 06/01/2018), neither working.

zerophase commented on 2019-06-15 21:31 (UTC)

@graysky The version from the aur seems to have that feature disabled by default.

graysky commented on 2019-06-15 10:28 (UTC)

@gee - I try to keep linux-ck as close to the official ARCH kernel as I can. I do not know what negative effect changing that parameter might have for other users. Recommend you build from the AUR yourself modifying it as you see fit.

gee commented on 2019-06-15 10:12 (UTC)

Hello again,

I'll retry my last request in an easier way if you don't mind graysky.

Would you mind using 'N' for Linux kconfig's RAID6_PQ_BENCHMARK? I have not been able to find a way to do so without altering the kconfig file yet, and since I grab the kernels from your repos, it wouldn't work that way.

Setting it to 'N' save a few seconds on boot time, which I think is quite nice.

zerophase commented on 2019-06-14 17:38 (UTC)

@freenestor if that does not work try updating your bios / uefi. I would also post more system specs. As a last, resort you could try doing a clean install just to rule out configs breaking from waiting awhile to upgrade.

I think the issue probably has something to do with the motherboard, though. If nothing works try to use the warranty for a replacement. A new version of the same mobo might just work.

graysky commented on 2019-06-14 17:14 (UTC)

@freenestor - can you boot 5.1.x-arch without the parameter? Rule out ck1 patchset as the cause in other words.

freenestor commented on 2019-06-14 05:56 (UTC)

I cannot boot linux-ck 5.1.x without nolapic kernel parameter, and with nolapic parameter the performance is worse. I can boot linux-ck 4.19.x normally. Can anyone give some advises?

graysky commented on 2019-06-13 20:27 (UTC)

@ismet - Something happened with the rsync mirror. Fixing now, please try in 5 min or so.

ismet commented on 2019-06-13 16:21 (UTC)

Althorion commented on 2019-06-11 08:07 (UTC)

Shame. Seems like a useful option.

graysky commented on 2019-06-10 18:46 (UTC)

@Althorin - Purely archival.

Althorion commented on 2019-06-10 11:18 (UTC)

The PKGBUILD saves config.last for later, but never does anything with it (i.e., giving the option to use one as a basis for compilation). Is there something missing?

graysky commented on 2019-05-06 18:09 (UTC)

@galaxy0419 - Not out of date,

gatlinnewhouse commented on 2019-04-27 21:00 (UTC)


I fixed the issue, it seems there was a problem with my makepkg.cfg

gatlinnewhouse commented on 2019-04-18 10:32 (UTC)

trying to compile this now causes my computer to freeze, drop out of the x server and go back to the vt login screen (and my configs automatically log me in) and just sit there, fans spinning inconsistently

sir_lucjan commented on 2019-04-04 16:07 (UTC)


You could rebase against 5.0.6

graysky commented on 2019-04-03 23:18 (UTC) (edited on 2019-04-03 23:18 (UTC) by graysky)

CK1 needs to be tweaked to patch into 5.0.6 it seems...

Hello graysky, I use to patch the local copy of the PKGBUILD to allow the currently running config (/proc/config) to be used as base config so maybe it can be useful to merge it ?

graysky commented on 2019-02-16 18:30 (UTC) (edited on 2019-02-16 18:40 (UTC) by graysky)

Seems like the ck patchset needs a tweak:

Testing now and will push 4.20.10-2 if successful.

Kr1ss commented on 2019-02-16 18:27 (UTC)

Looks like I could build after setting CONFIG_KVM and CONFIG_KVM_INTEL from <m> to [y]. I'm building for Haswell architecture btw.

graysky commented on 2019-02-16 18:19 (UTC)

Yea it tricked me into thinking it built find until I found 0 packages built from the batch... currently reviewing build log to see wtf.

It probably is out of focus, but it would be really nice to add this patchset:

My boot takes 2 sec to test various raid6 algorithms, when I don't even use raid... Being able to specify the algorithm to use would shave that time off and be awesome.

Thanks for pointing out my non-Arch standard settings and I forgot there was a new /etc/makepkg.conf.pacnew hanging about. I'm back to standard now.

I see you removed 'subarch 27' from PKGBUILD, and now as expected, linux-ck-4.20.3-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz and its headers build without issue.

graysky commented on 2019-01-17 00:50 (UTC)

@air-g4p - As well, your CFLAGS are not the Arch standard... drop -fstack-protector-strong per the new makepkg.conf in pacman-5.1.2-2.

graysky commented on 2019-01-16 21:07 (UTC) (edited on 2019-01-17 00:51 (UTC) by graysky)

@air-g4p - See the comments in the PKGBUILD and the discussion here in the AUR.

<h1>Note - the march=native option is unavailable by this method, use the nconfig and manually select it.</h1>

In short, I do not know how to allow the native option to get set via the method used for the other discretely defined options.

air-g4p commented on 2019-01-16 20:35 (UTC)


I'm running an i7 8550U.

Under both /etc/makepkg.conf and ~/chroot/root/etc/makepkg.conf, I have these identical settings:


CARCH="x86_64" CHOST="x86_64-pc-linux-gnu"

-- Compiler and Linker Flags

CPPFLAGS="-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2" CFLAGS="-march=native -O2 -pipe -fstack-protector-strong -fno-plt" CXXFLAGS="-march=native -O2 -pipe -fstack-protector-strong -fno-plt" LDFLAGS="-Wl,-O1,--sort-common,--as-needed,-z,relro,-z,now"

-- Make Flags: change this for DistCC/SMP systems


-- Debugging flags

DEBUG_CFLAGS="-g -fvar-tracking-assignments" DEBUG_CXXFLAGS="-g -fvar-tracking-assignments"

Is there anything you see in my setup that would drive:

'The build fails with hundreds of instances of:

Support for P6_NOPs on Intel chips (X86_P6_NOP) [N/y/?] (NEW) 27'

that I mentioned when '_subarch=27' is set?

I normally build linux-ck in a clean chroot without issue, but this infinite loop issue disturbs me.

graysky commented on 2019-01-13 12:11 (UTC)

I remember looking at this a while ago and concluding it isn't possible... prove me wrong :)

air-g4p commented on 2019-01-13 09:37 (UTC)

Hi graysky,

I can confirm the build loop issue zoopp mentioned last month is still present in linux-ck 4.20.1-1.

With this PKGBUILD option set:

27. Native optimizations autodetected by GCC (MNATIVE)


The build fails with hundreds of instances of:

Support for P6_NOPs on Intel chips (X86_P6_NOP) [N/y/?] (NEW) 27

It appears to me that the only way out of this loop is crtl-c.

Of course, the build proceeds normally with any other appropriate subarch assigned.

Thanks, @graysky! Yeah, I tried to revert some of the changes - docker stopped working after 4.19.4 or 4.19.5 (from repo-ck), but I just got some time to find the source of the error now. I thought it was CONFIG_CGROUP_CPUACCT at first because of error given by docker:

$ docker run --rm hello-world                        
docker: Error response from daemon: unable to find "cpuacct" in controller set: unknown.

That's just an example. Any other docker command (build, run, etc) would eventually ran into this issue (although the docker daemon seem to work normally).

This is something that doesn't happen in the stock kernel (and I make use of testing repositories as well). Anyway, I reverted not only that flag but some others as well (I actually did the diff myself earlier), but docker is still a no go. I'm not that expert in the kernel to go further and analyze what's wrong, unfortunately. I wanted to share my experience here in case anyone bumps into the same problem.

Would you mind providing me CK's blog so I can post there as well?

Thanks a lot!


Just found out the issue, pointed out by @marceliq and then CK's blog and comments regarding this issue as well as the forum post related. Thanks!

graysky commented on 2019-01-10 20:25 (UTC) (edited on 2019-01-10 20:28 (UTC) by graysky)

@vltr - It would appear the ck1 patchset does this, see here for a diff of the Arch config before and after simply patching with CK1:

Recommend you post to CK's blog referencing that diff and your problem. Might be that he did not mean to do that if I am correct.

vltr commented on 2019-01-10 11:28 (UTC)

Hello, @graysky! Just one question: is there any reason why the CONFIG_CGROUP_CPUACCT flag is not set anymore on linux-ck? Thanks a lot!

graysky commented on 2019-01-01 14:42 (UTC)

@saren - sorry about that... fixed now but did not bump the pkgver.

Saren commented on 2019-01-01 06:13 (UTC)

Hi, since 4.20-ck NUMA is disabled regardless of _NUMAdisable. $ numactl -s shows No NUMA support available on this system.

zoopp commented on 2018-12-27 12:46 (UTC)

I usually build with native optimisations detected by GCC however there's a problem if I assign anything to the _subarch variable. Early during the build this question pops up:

Support for P6_NOPs on Intel chips (X86_P6_NOP) [N/y/?] (NEW)

.. which is answered with the value of _subarch variable (27 in my case).

Since this isn't an accepted answer, the question loops endlessly.

Not really a big issue but I thought I should mention it.

air-g4p commented on 2018-12-12 09:51 (UTC)


Same here: Built linux-ck 4.19.8-1 without issue yesterday, and all seems to be running well and as expected since then.

Ropid commented on 2018-12-09 03:07 (UTC) (edited on 2018-12-09 03:11 (UTC) by Ropid)


On first look, it seems to work fine for me. I built and booted into this 4.19.8 version a few hours ago.

$ uname -r

$ uptime
 04:05:41 up  5:57,  1 user,  load average: 0.32, 1.34, 1.90

I don't see anything unusual happening in the journal. Programs, games and the desktop don't seem to misbehave.

graysky commented on 2018-12-08 17:22 (UTC)

I heard from CK that it is unlikely he will be able to unfuck 4.19-ck1 before the release of 4.20. Fortunately, a user on the blog posted two patches which seem to do just that. I have adapted them to the PKGBUILD for 4.19.7 and for 4.19.8. I have been testing 4.19.7-ck1 and it has been running without issues. I am building 4.19.8-ck1 now. I pushed 4.19.8 to the AUR just now and am requesting some user feedback on stability and performance. I will build the repo set once we some confirmation that all is well. Thanks.

graysky commented on 2018-12-05 22:53 (UTC)

@FarStar - False alarm... I made a mistake in my config when building. No issues with 4.19.6.

FarStar commented on 2018-12-01 12:08 (UTC)

Hello graysky,

What kind of problems? I have slowdowns at times but I don't know if it's related.

Anyone else experiencing problems relating to networking under 4.19.6?

I need to clear yay's cache after every major kernel update.

Highly discourage users from AUR helpers. 9 times out of 10, problems with builds are the apfsult of the helper.

@graysky Found the issue. I need to clear yay's cache after every major kernel update.

graysky commented on 2018-11-14 23:41 (UTC)

I don't think this is something with linux-ck but with how you configured/compiled/whatever it. Try the control experiment: build it straight-up and see if it works.

zerophase commented on 2018-11-14 22:57 (UTC)

@graysky I think it might be since I've modified my initramfs to the minimal size.

I could have sworn some of the usb subsystems were added directly to the kernel this release. I just don't want to reboot and find I have an unbootable kernel.

Any idea what to do about modules not being found?

graysky commented on 2018-11-14 22:05 (UTC)

I get no such errors

somethingtohide commented on 2018-10-18 15:56 (UTC)

I'm getting an error while building this, although it's unclear what it is. All the previously logged patching steps are either skipped or success. Here's just the last bit:

patching file sound/soc/soc-dapm.c patching file sound/usb/line6/pcm.c patching file tools/objtool/Makefile ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare(). Aborting...

I simply clone this AUR link, modify PKGBUILD to "_makeenconfig=y" and "_NUMAdisable=", then "makepkg -sri". Changing "_subarch=" has no effect.

I checked that last Makefile that's patched and it's indeed patched. I think the problem is the next line in the PKGBUILD, "local src"

@fran - I mirror the Arch official config just allowing CK1 to set the options it wants to. Does your setup work with the official Arch kernel?

@graysky Something goes wrong after the latest kernel update. I use something like this cryptkey=/dev/disk/by-uuid/..:ext4:/keys/mykey as kernel parameter, but it seems the USB is no longer init at boot. When using linux 4.10 it works correctly and the USB contents will be read.

Seems changes have been made in the config ( - don't know why this happens, do you have an idea? :)

air-g4p commented on 2018-09-25 09:44 (UTC)

@graysky - Thank you for sending me down the issues/29 path. I learned quite a bit, and now realize this 'problem' is upstream in nature. I'm sure this will not come as a surprise to you, but I'm running gcc version 8.2.1 20180831 (GCC) and the output of: gcc -c -Q -march=native --help=target | grep march is: -march= skylake Now I understand why, which I do appreciate.

graysky commented on 2018-09-23 17:56 (UTC)

@air-g4p - Your question is really for the gcc patchset I maintain. Issue 29 linked below applies but to my knowledge, there hasn't been any gcc changes to support your CPU. If I am wrong, plz post to the issue against the patch:

o/ graysky:

I'm running an i7-8550U which Intel describes as belonging to the Kaby Lake R family. This family was launched in Q3 2017.

That family of CPUs lives here:

Are you planning to add Kaby Lake support within your PKGBUILD or do you suggest I use another one of the other PKGBUILD 'Lakes'?

@ntia89 -

nTia89 commented on 2018-09-16 12:56 (UTC)

oh, thanks... I was missing the change upstream (kernel dev) :-(

graysky commented on 2018-09-16 12:47 (UTC)

This change mirrors that of the upstream Arch kernel and is due to the change of upstream (kernel source) not signing patches any more. You can modify the PKGBUILD to be like the old behavior if you want, but I will maintain as closely as I can how Arch upstream does it.

nTia89 commented on 2018-09-16 12:15 (UTC)

some releases ago, I used to download 4.X tar (90MB) and a patch-4.X.Y tar (~KB), while now I download 4.X.Y tar, for every new kernel sub-version. Is there a way to revert to a patch-system in order to build the kernel? I have an very very slow internet connection but I bet it will be appreciate for metered-connection users.

Should this also be changed?


vp1981 commented on 2018-08-31 08:29 (UTC)

@keren_sky, did you search for 'apm_bigs' in the kernel source? I did and found nothing, but searching for 'apm_bios' gives many results, for example

$ find -name 'apm_bios*'

./include/linux/apm_bios.h ./include/uapi/linux/apm_bios.h

I would assume that the error has nothing to do with 'apm_bios*' files.

P.S. If somehow your kernel source doesn't have 'apm_bios*' files then something wrong on your side.

keren_sky commented on 2018-08-29 23:00 (UTC)

Great! Confirming 4.18.5-3 builds fine for me now, you did the same thing I tried by removing the DEPMOD=/doesnt/exist. :) I was just testing it out and for my particular setup there are some regressions (AMDGPU related, I have 4 monitors, tends to be finicky) so I'll hold off for now and stick with 4.17.11-6.

thank you, but I think I don't understand what to do. I did:

it replied:

I did also that without realizing "wrong key usage" warning:

sudo pacman-key --lsign-key 38DBBDC86092693E

Now when I repeat above command (--recv-key) it says: Remote key not fetched correctly from keyserver.

I don't know if these info is helpful. If not, I'm sorry...

@melcor333 - broadcom and nvidia-* have been updated. Please try and reported back. broadcom and nvidia-340xx work for me on my test box.

graysky commented on 2018-08-09 21:06 (UTC)

Yes, the naming schema has changed. I will push some updates shortly.

graysky commented on 2018-08-09 19:29 (UTC)

All - I think I have all the kinks ironed out of the new PKGBUILD structure. We are still unfortunately in the position of ck1 not patching into 4.17.12-current so we seem stuck on 4.17.11. Good news is that 4.18.0 should be released this weekend and CK is likely to work on that rather than doing so to an EOL kernel (4.17.x series).

I just pushed 4.17.11-4 with a few minor tweaks. Builds and runs fine for me. Please d/l and test.

@Saren - Fixed the NUMA issue in -4. Please try.

Saren commented on 2018-08-07 17:42 (UTC)

Hi, my system needs NUMA support, and changing _NUMAdisable=y to _NUMAdisable= still disables NUMA support on 4.17.11-3. I have already compiled the kernel twice and I am sure I have changed that line. It was totally fine before the major PKGBUILD format change.

artafinde commented on 2018-08-07 11:29 (UTC)

Yeah if only they provide a checksum and/or signed packages :)

Following the new way for the linux package fetches the whole linux repo (bare) with cloning which downloads 2Gb just to checkout HEAD of it (~150Mb). The ideal would beto download from release i.e.

Hey graysky,

Is there any reason you're not using It contains all of the relevant Arch-specific changes:

zerophase commented on 2018-08-06 16:09 (UTC) (edited on 2018-08-06 16:11 (UTC) by zerophase)

@graysky should the kernel be installing modules as ck-ck now?

graysky commented on 2018-08-05 16:02 (UTC) (edited on 2018-08-05 16:02 (UTC) by graysky)

I changed my mind... I just commited 4.17.11-2 which just changes to the PKGBUILD to mirror that of Arch upstream. Builds for me. Can some others please test and report back? CK has been contacted about ck1 not patching in to 4.17.12.

graysky commented on 2018-08-05 11:32 (UTC)

@QuartzDragon - I have already merged it too but am don't see much value in using 4.17.11-2 with just the PKGBUILD changes... as I posted on 08-04, ck1 does not patch against 4.17.12.

QuartzDragon commented on 2018-08-05 09:44 (UTC) (edited on 2018-08-05 09:49 (UTC) by QuartzDragon)

Hey, graysky,

You may want to check out because the kernel PKGBUILD has changed significantly.

I've already merged in the changes locally, and it builds fine.

graysky commented on 2018-08-04 11:26 (UTC) (edited on 2018-08-11 10:11 (UTC) by graysky)

I am unable to patch into 4.17.12+ due to changes upstream... need to fix before updating the PKGBUILD:

I'm trying to build 4.14.20 because I have not been able to build a functional version since 4.16.15. Well 4.16 builds fine but it just hangs at boot same with 4.17-ck and vanilla. Only working kernel I got now is latest linux-lts.

SilverMight commented on 2018-07-29 21:39 (UTC)

Now it works, thanks. Do you know if there's an issue with CUDA? Doesn't seem to initialize on this kernel, but every other kernel works fine for me

graysky commented on 2018-07-29 21:04 (UTC)

I asked for a timeline for 4.17-ck1. I will update the [repo-ck] thread when I hear back. Doesn't make too much sense to go though heroic measures to troubleshoot if 4.17-ck1 is just around the corner. I believe 4.16.x will be EOL'ed shortly as well.

CK expects 4.17-ck1 in a few days so it's not worth trying to unfuck 4.16-ck1 to fit into 4.16.17 or 4.16.18 IMO.

graysky commented on 2018-06-24 21:07 (UTC)

Yea, it's confirmed that 4.16.17-1 doesn't play well with ck's patchset. I asked for a timeline for 4.17-ck1. I will update the [repo-ck] thread when I hear back.

Dennis commented on 2018-03-24 07:14 (UTC)

Today receiving the key just worked and the packages updated as well without issues. Must have been a network issue elsewhere.

@vp1981: The missing sudo on the second command was just an oversight on my part when I prepared a cleaned up, condensed message for posting here. In reality I ran all commands in a root shell and only added sudo in front for the log here to make it clear that I was running those commands as root.

vp1981 commented on 2018-03-23 23:55 (UTC)


I already installed that packages using 'pacman -U'. I had to say that these are the only packages that not upgraded smoothly, on other two platforms (haswell and sandybridge) all was fine. At first I suspected that it is the 'archlinux-keyring' that cause the problem, I tried to update all other packages but without '-ck-skylake*' and only after that tried to update these two packages using usual 'pacman -Su' but 'pacman' reported something about either broken package or a key, I couldn't remember the details, sorry.


I tried to reinstall the key and went fine (actually pacman-key returned that the key is already installed). Besides, according to the your message the problem with 'gpg': it cannot retrieve the key. You may try again but I'm not sure what causes the failure (may be network problem or gpg misconfiguration, you may want to [re]read Also I noticed that you issue command like

sudo pacman-key ... && pacman-key ...

without 'sudo' before the second pacman-key. Try to append 'sudo' to both 'pacman-key'.

P.S. I usually do that everyday:

(reflector stuff) && pacman -Scc && pacman -Syy && pacman -Su && pacman -Scc

you do not have the option to enable bfq-mq anymore

you mean the kernel cmdline option?

it should appear as bfq-mq in the list of schedulers

I have felling that that's wrong (may be because now BFQ in mainline). Some time ago I tried to follow closely BFQ development and had impression that new 'BFQ-MQ' is now 'BFQ' in mainline. This line

mq-deadline kyber [bfq] none

tells me that bfq in my case is BFQ-MQ (because all these schedulers are MQ).

sir_lucjan commented on 2018-03-21 17:23 (UTC)


Nope, I have my own kernel with bfq patchset.

Terence commented on 2018-03-21 17:20 (UTC)

@sir_lucjan yes, you have bfq-mq and bfq I was just saying vp1981 only had bfq. I see you have bfq-mq. Is this from latest linux-ck? Did you have to do somethign to enable it?

Thank you very much, unfortunately despite my trials, the patch fails to apply. I reverted to 4.14.12-2-ck which seem to be the last linux-ck including bfq-sq scheduler.

So to my understanding, bfq-sq has been removed from ck patchset itself but I couldn't find relevant information on Paolo Valente's website.

Can somebody elaborate why? or have any information whether it may come back or not.

Yep, removing this file from the cache and fetching again, worked.

For reference and as a follow up on the touchPad + trackPoint of my pc not being fully enabled by this config, enabling _makenconfig=y option in the PKGBUILD permitted adding this two modules to the build:

Device Drivers -> input device support -> (M) RMI4 SMB Support

Device Drivers -> HID support -> Special HID drivers -> (M) Synaptics RMI4 device support

After a reboot everything was working as before, TITS (that is to say :D) the trackPoint was hardly moving in one direction only.

But adding psmouse.synaptics_intertouch=1 as a boot parameter (advertised in boot log) made the two freshly built modules to be loaded at boot, allowing the trackPoint to be usable without shortcomings !

As a proof, using xinput on X11 the touchPad is recognized in a different way : "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad" now is "Synaptics TM2758-001". In Wayland the name is different but both devices work well too.

I'm getting this output in my dmesg whenever a VM is running:

BUG: using smp_processor_id() in preemptible [00000000] code: CPU 0/KVM/690
BUG: using smp_processor_id() in preemptible [00000000] code: CPU 1/KVM/691

It seems to be related to CONFIG_PREEMPT, since changing to CONFIG_PREEMPT_NONE=y or CONFIG_PREEMPT_VOLUNTARY=y eliminates the message.

This does not occur on the regular Arch kernel

graysky commented on 2018-02-23 20:41 (UTC)

@RaskAr - I use the ARCH .config as the base for linux-ck making only the changes the ck patchset requires. If this is something shipped with the kernel but silent in the config itself, you can enable it and build with it. If this is an out-of-tree addition, you are free to patch the source and build it.

RaskAr commented on 2018-02-23 19:46 (UTC)

Hello graysky, the config seems to be missing a builtin config for laptop users :

From log : « kernel: psmouse serio3: synaptics: The touchpad can support a better bus than the too old PS/2 protocol. Make sure MOUSE_PS2_SYNAPTICS_SMBUS and RMI4_SMB are enabled to get a better touchpad experience. »

After checking the config it only misses RMI4, which is the successor of the PS2 PROTOCOL, see Would be great to have it enabled !

PS: Putting "scsi_mod.use_blk_mq=1 " in kernel options is enabling the BFQ MQ scheduler. The selecting it with TLP, works just fine.

PS2: elevator option in the kernel parameters is not recognized.

kata198 commented on 2018-02-08 05:03 (UTC)

@QuartzDragon - I applied the 4.14 patch with -F5 (fuzz-level 5, dangerous; requires manual review of every patch but "shoves" things in when at all possible. It even managed to shove some code right into the middle of a comment!), fixed the rejections, added one or two new compat functions as required due to API/ABI changes between .14 and .15, did some basic research into where things moved around and such and applied those changes.

I've done some kernel work in the past, so I like to think I'm somewhat familiar with the layout of things. It shouldn't take too long for you to pick up where things are, thanks to you're friendly General Regular Expression Parser (grep) .

Basically, checked the diff between 4.14 and 4.15 on the core scheduler to see any abi/api changes, and others as they arose ( I remember there being a change in some of the "compat" files which required updates/additions/rewrites beyond what the original patch provided, there may have been others ).

Then just built, and fixed any issues that arise during compile (these can be due to changing where #ifdef wrappers are in the baseline, where the patch may force things into the wrong section, or a linker issue from a missing function, etc.)

I'd say just dive right in! Try to merge 4.14 to 4.15 yourself, basically make it till you break it, or succeed! Probably a good idea to use a virtualbox image for testing rather than your primary system, or what I do on this laptop I am using to type to you right now, which is running arch in a virtualbox on top of windows 10 (work / warrenty reasons) is this: I take a snapshot prior to development, so any damage that gets done I can just roll back and alls good.

Hope this helps, I'm not too sure on what you are looking for specifically, so I tried to keep it general!

I would say just dig in! Try you m

kata198 commented on 2018-02-08 04:46 (UTC)

I mentioned specifically that I didn't know if they were true or not -- I just found a couple articles when searching to see if anyone else had ported it as it was time for me to build a new kernel. I mean no disrespect nor harm toward anybody. @beojan is probably right -- they may have been dated 2007 which I mistook for 2017.

If you've spoken with him and he says he's not -- all the better. But please don't try to make me out to be some sort of demon spreading nonsense -- I specifically said "I don't know if these reports are legitimate or not."

You're free to enjoy the early merge and update I did, or you're free to wait for him to release an official version. I'm still running strong without any issues on my merge, so it seems pretty stable to me.

Again, I apoligize if I've upset anybody, this was not my intent at all.

beojan commented on 2018-02-06 11:48 (UTC)

@kata198 I wonder if the "rumours" you're hearing are really old news from when he stopped maintaining the old ck patchset in 2007.

graysky commented on 2018-02-04 11:20 (UTC)

@kata198- While I applause your efforts to help port the ck patchset, announcing uncited and unconfirmed rumors as pretext is not cool.

CK himself replied to me in a private email:

Yeah bullshit. It'll probably be a week or so though.

Where did you hear about these rumours? I'm curious as to why he'd stop maintaining the patchset without notifying everyone, and passing the reins onto someone capable.

Also, out of curiousity, how did you rebase the patches? I'm curious about learning how to do rebasing, myself.

Linux-4.15 (Unofficial)

Hey guys, I've heard rumros that Con Kolivas may no longer be maintaining the ck patchset? I don't know if these reports are legitimate or not, but just in case they are, I went ahead and manually updated the ck patchset to cleanly apply with 4.15. It's been a little bit of time since I've done any sort of active kernel development, but I believe everything is correct here, and I've been running this ported patchset (ported patch-4.14-ck1.xz to work with linux-4.15) for almost 2 full days now without even the slightestnd ev indication of issue, I'm running on an intel i7 in SMP/SMT mode, through virtualbox as my primary laptop/desktop.

I'm posting to share my unofficial merge of the patchset, in the hopes that it may be of benefit to others.

You can find the patch and even a drop-in replacement of the PKGBUILD on stock arch-4.15 package, HERE:

@QuartzDragon Thanks got it working. I was zcatting config over too early in prepare earlier. (might have been missing switching Retpoline on) For some reason running zcat too early in prepare turns every module on.

QuartzDragon commented on 2018-01-17 23:55 (UTC)

@graysky @zerophase

The Retpoline patches for Spectre got backported to the current 4.14.14 release, not before. The Memory Page Isolation patches for Meltdown were earlier, though, yeah.

@zerophase - Yes, since version 4.14.11-1 I believe.

zerophase commented on 2018-01-16 21:29 (UTC)

I tried the whole zcat /proc/config.gz > ./.config. It seems to work fine, but it looks like more modules are turned on, and the kernel ballooned up by 51.66 MiBs for me. Did anyone else notice the kernel get larger?

Are the Spectre and Meltdown protections turned on by default?

enihcam commented on 2018-01-11 04:47 (UTC)

Thank you @QuartzDragon.

Maybe @graysky could simple add a step to zcat /proc/config.gz to somewhere, for example /tmp/.config? I thought this should be harmless. In this way, people who want to reuse current config could save the manual step, i.e. just open the menu and load /tmp/.config.

zerophase commented on 2018-01-11 04:00 (UTC)

I wouldn't mind a solution for config_current either. I can't always remember what I turned on in the kernel every time.

QuartzDragon commented on 2018-01-11 03:21 (UTC) (edited on 2018-01-11 03:22 (UTC) by QuartzDragon)


You can always just keep config.last aside, or just zcat /proc/config.gz manually if you really need to.

enihcam commented on 2018-01-11 01:51 (UTC)

@graysky, is there any alternative solutions to using '_use_current'? I have many specialized devices running linux-ck, removal of _use_current causes a lot of troubles in maintaining the kernels.

Lessaj commented on 2018-01-09 01:26 (UTC) (edited on 2018-01-09 01:26 (UTC) by Lessaj)

As long as it stops to ask you for any CONFIG that it's missing it's good to keep. It used to stop to ask, I think what's preventing it is:

yes "" | make config >/dev/null

graysky commented on 2018-01-07 20:12 (UTC)

@eugen-b @Tjuh The parameter is not in the current config unless you've booted with a kernel that contains it so I added it, I believe it's actually getting stuck further down in prepare but commenting that out fixes it because it doesn't overwrite the current config.

  zcat /proc/config.gz > ./.config
  echo "CONFIG_PAGE_TABLE_ISOLATION=y" >> ./.config

Tjuh commented on 2018-01-07 16:48 (UTC)

Same issue as eugen-b when enabling config_audit=y in the config file. Haven't been able to compile since version 4.14.6-2.

I got endless lines related to CONFIG_PAGE_TABLE_ISOLATION=y after makeconfig -sri

I edited the PKGBUILD with _use_current=n, but it didn't help.

Try deleting your old build files, because the patch applies perfectly fine for me. If you're not using TMPFS for your builds, then your old build files will stick around, causing you issues if you don't delete them every now and then.

Hi grayslake,

SUCCESS! Linux-ck can now be built without issue in a clean chroot.

To make it absolutely clear to anyone who wants to build linux-ck in a clean chroot, grayslake referred to specifying the correct _subarch variable for your system on line 38 of PKGBUILD prior to building.

You, ROCK, grayslake!

Thank you for your assistance.

All the best - and Merry Christmas,


graysky commented on 2017-12-18 20:10 (UTC)

@air-g4p - You need to assign a value to the _subarch variable (line 38) before you try building.

fails with either linux-ck 4.14.6-3 or with linux-ck 4.14.7-1.

I have pasted the complete failed build runs at:

linux-ck 4.14.6-3 (per your suggestion) lives here:

and also with: linux-ck 4.14.7-1, here:

Despite the 'advice' generated just prior to build failure:

Console input/output is redirected. Run 'make oldconfig' to update configuration.

$ make oldconfig make: *** No rule to make target 'oldconfig'. Stop.

and ofc, this also:

$ sudo make oldconfig [sudo] password for <userid>: make: *** No rule to make target 'oldconfig'. Stop.</userid>

Those 'make oldconfig' failures occur irrespective of whether a user is in their correct build directory, or in their chroot directory = /var/lib/archbuild/extra-x86_64/<userid>/build</userid>

Also, carefully note, the build process never stopped, prior to failure, to ask me, which CPU I wanted to build support for. The current linux-ck AURs I have tested above both only auto-select '> 23. Generic-x86-64 (GENERIC_CPU)', then immediately fail.

grayslake - I do appreciate your ongoing support, but I would like to get to the bottom of this issue, sometime 'soon'. If you have specific commands you want me to test, let me know.

All the best,

@artafinde - good idea.

artafinde commented on 2017-12-18 07:58 (UTC)

@graysky I suggest for now to delete the 24 option (line #38) on the PKGBUILD. If a user wants native detection let him go through makepkg.

Hi graysky,

Thank you very much for attention and extremely quick correction of this issue. Highly impressive, indeed!

When I get a chance, I'll try a re-build with the current release, and let you how things went.

All the best,


graysky commented on 2017-12-17 23:33 (UTC) (edited on 2017-12-17 23:34 (UTC) by graysky)

@artafinde - Short of applying this patch and shipping the corresponding config (which makes building for repo-ck more difficult), I don't know how to cover that use-case.

It might be a bit of a hassle for you, but if you just run makepkg -s outside of the chroot, setup the config to your liking, you can replace the shipped config with config.last and update the checksums before you build in the chroot.

artafinde commented on 2017-12-17 23:23 (UTC)

@graysky: if you choose 24 (native) then you are asked again for P6_NOPS which fails to auto-configure with "yes" Support for P6_NOPs on Intel chips (X86_P6_NOP) [N/y/?] (NEW)

graysky commented on 2017-12-17 09:56 (UTC)

@air-g4p - Yes, the failure is due to user intervention being required to select a sub-arch. Please try 4.14.16-3 in which the _subarch variable should take care of this use case.

air-g4p commented on 2017-12-17 06:21 (UTC)

Hi graysky,

In the event you are not aware, your linux-ck 4.14.6-2 AUR fails to build in a clean chroot, using: extra-x86_64-build.

Your immediately prior release also failed to build using either extra-x86_64-build or makechrootpkg -c -r $CHROOT.

We know for a fact your AUR is broken because when discussing this linux-ck build failure on #archlinux, another experienced AUR user also replicated the same extra-x86_64-build failure on his system.

I have pasted my entire build run for your review at: That paste URL will remain valid for one month.

Additionally, for those users willing to employ this approach, I can confirm your AUR can be successfully built and installed with: makepkg -si.

I hope you are able to determine, and correct, whichever part(s) of your code is/are causing the build failure, as many of us strongly prefer to build AURs exclusively within a clean chroot environment.

Thank you for providing an otherwise excellent alternative kernel. Your effort is immensely appreciated.

I encountered the same problem as @eduardoeae.

eduardoeae commented on 2017-12-16 03:17 (UTC)

Your packages (from are failing with "missing required signature". I have been using them for months without problem. Also tried re-adding your key (pacman-key -r 5EE46C4C && pacman-key --lsign-key 5EE46C4C) as the site suggests, but still not working.

pedrogabriel commented on 2017-11-26 22:29 (UTC)

You plan to include the new runqueue patch?

johnnybegood commented on 2017-11-25 17:44 (UTC)

Thanks a lot for the ck patches for bfq-sq!!! :)

Osleg commented on 2017-11-25 16:21 (UTC)

Kernel panic solved, was unrelated to kernel itself

Osleg commented on 2017-11-25 13:44 (UTC)

Also this since upgrade to >4.14 Kernel panic with "No working init found" Any idea what could be the cause?

Osleg commented on 2017-11-25 13:38 (UTC)

Yeah It downloads the sources twice and it builds it twice. Just finished compilation using plain old and reliable makepkg, worked like a charm w/o duplication. :) Also, @graysky, was looking for you at IRC but since can't find you I'll ask you here. I have a server that standing idling for no reasons for quite long time and it will keep standing there. Would you like to host the$arch there? Cuz afaik lots of people have problems downloading the binary -ck images from your servers. But it's quite anoying to re-build it every time on my machine :) I can give you access to the machine if you'd like?

graysky commented on 2017-11-25 13:05 (UTC)

No idea how yaourt works but if it is running the build function twice, the author of it should be notified as that is wasteful. Are you sure that it isn't just building once, and packaging the kernel then headers? That is how makepkg does it.

Osleg commented on 2017-11-25 12:36 (UTC)

@sir_lucjan Thanks for responding, already found my question in documentation, this PKGBUILD is multi package for both headers and the kernel itself. The question tho is that possible to build both headers and kernel w/o re-downloading and re-building the entire kernel? Right now I'm installing using yaourt. So it download sources twice and building twice. How could I prevent that?

sir_lucjan commented on 2017-11-23 19:40 (UTC)

@Osleg Could you tell us what do you mean?

Osleg commented on 2017-11-23 19:37 (UTC)

I wonder what is the difference between this pkg and linux-ck as their PKGBUILDs are identical

Terence commented on 2017-11-23 15:05 (UTC)

@artafinde @graysky After some more investigations, I figured out those were just warnings with the purpose to warn you they will not be included by default in the kernel, and you can safely ignore them as dkms take care of building them. Thank you very much for your help, I hope this could eventually help someone confused like me.

QuartzDragon commented on 2017-11-23 10:03 (UTC) (edited on 2017-11-23 10:05 (UTC) by QuartzDragon)

Attention @graysky and @everyone: Urgently needed update! FS#56404 - [linux] Using bcache will destroy filesystems (4.14.X) ~ and: 4.14.1-2 patch ~ I've already updated manually for this.

Terence commented on 2017-11-22 23:11 (UTC)

@artafinde: Thanks for your complete answer. I rigorously followed your advices, booting back to the ARCH kernel and making sure once more dkms modules are blacklisted and not stored, but whatever I do, I still get the same error with localmodconfig when either compiling on ARCH or -ck. I don't understand what's wrong... Note that I also use dkms modules on the regular kernel.

artafinde commented on 2017-11-22 18:05 (UTC)

@Terence: modprobed-db is snapshotting your loaded modules and adds them into a database. Provided you run the system long enough and use it you should have all the modules you are using. localmodconfig is a tool to configure the kernel to use the modules which are currently used from the kernel dkms is using the kernel-headers to create new modules for nvidia/virtualbox etc. During linux-ck compilation and if you have set the localmodconfig parameter in PKGBUILD we load all modules which are referenced in modprobed-db prior to calling localmodconfig. Then kernel is configured according to the loaded modules and compiles etc. If you want to make sure you have a clean modprobed-db follow these steps: 1. clean up modprobed-db from modules which don't belong on kernel (nvidia, vbox etc) 2. add those to IGNORE list (optionally test by calling modprobed-db store nd check they are not added) 3. reboot and load -ARCH kernel (to make sure all the modules are available) 4. edit PKGBUILD and set localmodconfig - compile and install 5. dkms should build new modules (nvidia, vbox, exfat etc) 6. reboot to your new kernel The above process is what I follow and works fine with nvidia, vbox and exfat -dkms packages. As a fallback I have -ARCH kernel always installed.

Terence commented on 2017-11-22 17:42 (UTC) (edited on 2017-11-22 23:07 (UTC) by Terence)

@artafinde sorry I didn't make it clear enough but that's what I did :) To me it's like modprobe-db just loads all the modules it detected has been loaded at some point and then localmodconfig just lsmod, which includes dkms modules... There has to be a way to exclude them.

artafinde commented on 2017-11-22 17:38 (UTC)

Open the modprobed-db database (it's a file) and remove them from the list.

Terence commented on 2017-11-22 17:30 (UTC)

@artafinde @graysky Thanks but I knew that, that's why they are built using dkms and I took care of blacklisting all of them, making sure they are not appearing in the modprobe-db file, but problem persists.

artafinde commented on 2017-11-22 17:25 (UTC)

@Terence: The nvidia is external same as virtualbox modules. If you have dkms packages it should trigger a build after you install (provided you have headers). modprobed-db should probably exclude them with IGNORE list - see wiki.

graysky commented on 2017-11-22 17:19 (UTC)

@Terence - These are either provided by some other package or not included in the kernel anymore. See man modprobed-db.

Terence commented on 2017-11-22 17:10 (UTC)

I've never been able to find anywhere a solution to this problem with localmodconfig, modprobed-db and dkms modules: ==> If you have modprobed-db installed, running it in recall mode now Modprobed-db v2.37 164 modules currently loaded per /proc/modules 168 modules are in /home/terence/.config/modprobed.db Attempting to modprobe the contents of /home/terence/.config/modprobed.db 164 modules are now loaded per /proc/modules ==> Running Steven Rostedt's make localmodconfig now using config: '.config' vboxpci config not found!! nvidia config not found!! nvidia_uvm config not found!! vboxnetflt config not found!! vboxnetadp config not found!! vboxdrv config not found!! 8812au config not found!! nvidia_drm config not found!! nvidia_modeset config not found!! Any insight?

sir_lucjan commented on 2017-11-21 21:04 (UTC)

@johnnybegood I also recommended blk-mq patches.

johnnybegood commented on 2017-11-21 20:55 (UTC)

Works perfect for me as well. However, I still miss the old single queue bfq, the now called "bfq-sq" that was never merged into the official kernel, so I compiled ck with sirlucjan latest patch for 4.14 ( I find the combination of -ck and bfq-sq unbeatable. Maybe it's just me but it could be an addition to this excellent kernel. Graysky, thanks for your work and CK's!

zebulon commented on 2017-11-21 12:07 (UTC)

Works for me. Need to use scsi_mod.use_blk_mq=1 init option for blq as expected. @silvik: I do not need to use elevator=bfq, scsi_mod.use_blk_mq=1 is sufficient. I need however to set udev rules to set bfq.

graysky commented on 2017-11-20 21:37 (UTC)

CK pushed MuQSS v0.162 into ck1 for 4.14 so it's official. I merged with ARCH changes and here we go. Please test/provide feedback. I will hold off on pushing to [repo-ck] for at least 24 h to get some feedback.

silvik commented on 2017-11-20 20:12 (UTC)

BFQ works for me with scsi_mod.use_blk_mq=1 elevator=bfq kernel options.

francoism90 commented on 2017-11-04 21:28 (UTC)

@kwe: Do you have a source? We should try to keep the Wiki up-to-date, contributes are welcome. :)

Terence commented on 2017-11-04 20:22 (UTC)

@kwe Thanks and sorry for the off-topic.

kwe commented on 2017-11-04 20:20 (UTC)

@Terence 1. this is not really related to this AUR package anymore 2. don't take the wiki for the golden words from god 3. what the note means is that all sq schedulers are unavailable and (probably from pre-4.12 Kernels) that there were no mq-schedulers. 4.12 added Kyber and BFQ

Terence commented on 2017-11-04 20:14 (UTC) (edited on 2017-11-04 20:17 (UTC) by Terence)

@kwe Ok my bad, I forgot it's not deadline anymore but mk-deadline. Why is the wiki saying that I can't do that though?

kwe commented on 2017-11-04 20:10 (UTC)

@Terence Deadline should be an option: $ cat /sys/block/sda/queue/scheduler mq-deadline kyber [bfq] none

Terence commented on 2017-11-04 20:09 (UTC)

@kwe Ok, I'm indeed using grub and forgot about that, thanks. One more question: I have my root partition on my SSD and my home/var partition on my HDD. I was before using deadline on the SSD and BFQ on the HDD. It seems I can't do that anymore now and it's confirmed by the arch wiki. Will it's still perform ok with the SSD compared to deadline or is there another alternative for my system configuration?

kwe commented on 2017-11-04 20:02 (UTC)

@Terence: From what I can tell, the "elevator" parameter is being slowly phased out and might only set the sq scheduler. Using elevator=[mq-scheduler] seems to crash. There is a patch for the Linux kernel that fixes this crash by introducing a relevant check, but it won't be introduced until 4.15 IIRC. You don't need to boot a live system if you're using GRUB. You can edit the start parameters via the E key and then fix your GRUB config from within your normal system.

Terence commented on 2017-11-04 19:58 (UTC)

@kwe Thanks for your relevant comment, I tried to use the 'elevator' kernel parameter but it crashed the kernel at boot and I needed to boot to the live usb to be able to fix it. I then have 2 questions: 1) Why are there still patches for BFQ included? 2) Can the package be updated with "CONFIG_SCSI_MQ_DEFAULT = y"?

kwe commented on 2017-11-04 18:59 (UTC)

@everybody who is not involved, @Terence I've had some troubles figuring out what's up, so here is my tl;dr of the issue: We used to have BFQ as a part of the ck kernel patches. With a recent kernel version, you have BFQ merged into the vanilla kernel tree. Hence, BFQ was removed from the ck patchset. However, the BFQ in the kernel is for blk-mq, whereas previously we had bfq for non-mq / sq. Because this kernel defaults to sq (CONFIG_SCSI_MQ_DEFAULT = n), the mq BFQ from the Linux kernel is not available. The solution seems to be to either build with that option enabled or alternatively boot the kernel with scsi_mod.use_blk_mq=1

Terence commented on 2017-11-04 18:52 (UTC)

I can't get BFQ to be enabled with the latest version.

keepitsimpleengr commented on 2017-10-31 20:37 (UTC)

@graysky got it

graysky commented on 2017-10-31 19:29 (UTC)

@keepitsimp - It's due to the fact that nvidia-utils-387.22-1 is out but I know and thus didn't update nvidia-ck. It has been done now. In the future please flag the nvidia-ck package out-of-date.

mrkline commented on 2017-10-31 17:36 (UTC)

@sir_lucjan - What does `patch -R` have to do with this? I'm posting because 4.13.10-1 allowed me to select BFQ as a scheduler, while 4.13.10-2 and 4.13.10-3 do not seem to. @artafinde - I've been following along for the most part. Previously BFQ wasn't the default, but I was able to switch to it on boot using a udev rule. I'm confused why this changed.

@graysky: The latest two builds (4.13.10-2 and 4.13.10-3) don't seem to be building in BFQ. I see that you added CK's Enable-and-make-BFQ-default-IO-scheduler-overriding-.patch, but after building and installing, I see: $ cat /sys/block/sda/queue/scheduler noop deadline [cfq] Perhaps the patches are being applied in the wrong order?

timofonic commented on 2017-10-30 19:09 (UTC)

Hello. I would love to build ck patches, but need to use drm-tip. I might get one interesting patch you have and maybe scrap for some more, but I doubt patches could apply to this too new version. If it does, I'll happily do a variant of it. Anyway, could you help me to improve my PKGBUILD? I'll do an -anbox variant with the binder and the other subsystem enabled (I don't remember the name right now). I got busy IRL and a little lost about what to improve or continue changing. Thanks in advance.

j1simon commented on 2017-10-24 06:59 (UTC)

I have a problem with 4.13.x. I have opened a bug because this occurs with all kernels 4.13.x that I've tested: stock, zen, ck.

Hi graysky, The virtualbox-ck-host-modules-ivybridge doesn't seem to exist anymore in repo-ck. Is it as intended, and if so, what is the suggested replacement?

graysky commented on 2017-10-22 17:30 (UTC) (edited on 2017-10-22 17:36 (UTC) by graysky)

All - again, the old behavior causes boot freezes thus requiring: 1) users to tweak with udev or the like, 2) something I do with the help of loqs, 3) the best option is for CK to do it and release ck2 with the fix. I know 4.13.x has been delayed and I am no happier about that than you guys are. I emailed ck earlier today asking about his decision re: this fix in ck2 (recall the discussion on his blog last week), but haven't heard back yet. As well, if you're following the repo-ck thread on the bbs, I have asked loqs for his best solution as I neither have the hardware nor to the time to dig into this further right now. Stay tuned and thanks for your time to test and provide feedback.

nTia89 commented on 2017-10-22 17:19 (UTC)

@graysky, since changelog says: -CONFIG_DEFAULT_CFQ=y +CONFIG_DEFAULT_BFQ=y -CONFIG_DEFAULT_IOSCHED="cfq" +CONFIG_DEFAULT_IOSCHED="bfq" I expect "bfq" enabled without ANY trick (both kernel param., udev rule or any other...). Correct me if I am wrong.

Tjuh commented on 2017-10-22 17:17 (UTC)

Nice, thanks for that, most appreciated.

FarStar commented on 2017-10-22 17:09 (UTC) (edited on 2017-10-22 17:15 (UTC) by FarStar)

Hi, Personally, I use an udev rule: /etc/udev/rules.d/60-scheduler.rules ACTION=="add|change", KERNEL=="sd[a-z]", ATTR{queue/scheduler}="bfq" And I get: $ cat /sys/block/sda/queue/scheduler mq-deadline kyber [bfq] none

Tjuh commented on 2017-10-22 17:05 (UTC)

A bit confused, so how does one enable BFQ nowadays? Wiki says setting elevator=bfq as a kernel parameter does not work.

graysky commented on 2017-10-22 16:28 (UTC)

@nTia89 and Tjuh - I believe that is the expected output, no?

Tjuh commented on 2017-10-22 15:29 (UTC)

Same as nTia89.

nTia89 commented on 2017-10-22 15:25 (UTC)

I get this, no kernel parameters or anything else (e.g udev rules): $ cat /sys/block/sda/queue/scheduler [mq-deadline] kyber bfq none

graysky commented on 2017-10-22 13:46 (UTC)

Please try 4.13.9-1 which has a workaround incorporated. No special kernel parameters should be needed. Works for me without them. Feedback please!

QuartzDragon commented on 2017-10-20 08:56 (UTC)

Hey @graysky and everyone, The reason for all of the BFQ woes came from SCSI_MQ_DEFAULT defaulting to disabled upstream. I have BFQ automatically set via udev rules, and enabling SCSI_MQ_DEFAULT allowed BFQ to work as usual. This was a problem previously, and I'm surprised no-one seems to have remembered this... unless it was presumed that SCSI_MQ_DEFAULT was still enabled by default.

sir_lucjan commented on 2017-10-17 13:20 (UTC)

As of version 4.13.7-2, I am not able to select bfq as a scheduler. It is not available as a scheduler option. Is this intentional? $ cat /sys/block/sda/queue/scheduler noop deadline [cfq] Edit: Sorry, did not read previous comments re. the problem with bfq.

@graysky Please check your mail.

graysky commented on 2017-10-16 20:03 (UTC)

It seems as though bfq is to blame. For me, booting elevator=cfq in the boot loader works as expected. Can others confirm?

artafinde commented on 2017-10-16 18:33 (UTC) (edited on 2017-10-16 19:56 (UTC) by artafinde)

How does the debug symbols impact performance? It would be handy to have backtraces information when this happens but it means we need to compile with debug symbols which probably defeats the purpose of optimizations (MNATIVE etc). It would be handy for CK though.. My kernel panic on i7-6700 here:

nTia89 commented on 2017-10-16 17:52 (UTC)

Same here (not too old hardware, i5-5200U). Compiled with options: MNATIVE and X86_P6_NOP I attach a photo, maybe it can be useful: I have to say that respond to command: CTRL+ALT+CANC reboot the pc

Saren commented on 2017-10-16 15:56 (UTC)

Can confirm it's not just you. I got kernel panic on boot

graysky commented on 2017-10-16 13:40 (UTC)

I just pushed 4.13.7-1 but I am unable to boot after compiling on an admittedly old system. Requesting feedback from other users.

@ozmartian in /usr/lib/modules-load.d just comment out crypto_user in bluez.conf. I wasn't having issues with booting; the module just wouldn't load for me.

ozmartian commented on 2017-10-14 22:14 (UTC)

@zerophase could you provide more detail re crypto_user and what you edited and for which bluez package, pretty please? my linux-ck partitions are stalling on boot and crypto_user was the only error I could find in journal/logs so would save me having to figure it out myself until 4.13 is out... am temporarily using standard arch 4.13 kernel as a result and it feels like i am cheating on CK :p thanks!

zebulon commented on 2017-10-11 21:07 (UTC)

@zerophase: thanks, always interesting to hear experience from others. Hopefully the wait will not be too long.

zerophase commented on 2017-10-09 18:57 (UTC)

For supporting journaled quotas is another switch needed to be turned on other than QFMT_V2? Switched it on, but still cannot mount my disk with usrjquota and grpjquota turned on.

zerophase commented on 2017-10-06 18:56 (UTC)

@zebulon I just needed to edit one of the bluez packages to not load crypto_user, since that doesn't exist until 4.13. I understand ck has a busy life, and in the past has spent too much time hacking the kernel. I'm just trying to see what's up.

graysky commented on 2017-10-06 18:53 (UTC)

I emailed CK asking about the timelines for MuQSS for 4.13.x and he said 1-2 weeks. I also asked him to post a blog entry since others probably want to know too.

zebulon commented on 2017-10-06 11:29 (UTC)

@zerophase: Con Klivas' blog and repository mention the latest patch for 4.12. We need to wait. What kind of issues do you have?

zerophase commented on 2017-10-06 09:37 (UTC)

Has anyone heard from ck on 4.13 being released? Being on 4.12 still is starting to cause bugs with other arch packages.

That is to be expected with nvme.

Should bfq be the default scheduler without setting anything, now? Just noticed my nvme drive is running with none by default.

eschwartz commented on 2017-09-15 13:11 (UTC)

Apparently around 2012 linux-ck-headers started providing linux-headers as a truly ugly workaround for some community package that had a hard dependency on linux-headers. AFAICT no package still requires linux-headers when they work for -ck as well, since we have generally moved to dkms. Can you please remove this provides?

hotty commented on 2017-08-26 16:05 (UTC)

Since it is weekend and I finally had some time I found the culprit in the form of my internal sd-card reader. If I have a sd-card inserted udev times out resulting in a blinking cursor. Without a card linux-ck boots successful. Also inserting a card after booting does not detect the sd-card but instead crashes systemd-udev with the kernel blaming the error on block/elevator.c Using an external card-reader works. To report the bug and send in the full error message, is it an bug in udev or in ck?

Tharbad commented on 2017-08-22 19:00 (UTC)

It's appears that there's a conflict between scsi_mod.use_blk_mq=0 and any of the multi queue I/O schedulers. So either set scsi_mod.use_blk_mq to 1 or use the "none" scheduler. Choosing option n2 makes this kernel worthless. I haven't tried it yet. Found it here:

vp1981 commented on 2017-08-22 12:21 (UTC)

@hotty, @Tharbad, guys would you mind to provide more details? For example, your system configuration (HDD/SSD, FS), kernel cmdline, what queue scheduler do you use and etc. And don't forget that graysky only build the kernel with CK patches, so report any problems to CK,

Tharbad commented on 2017-08-22 12:08 (UTC)

System freezes sometime during the graphical login. CPU is at 100%. ctrl+alt+F# and magic keys don't work.

hotty commented on 2017-08-20 21:23 (UTC)

Still got a non-bootable kernel, both from here or from repo-ck freezes at boot since version 4.12.7. Normal arch kernel boots without any issues. Just a blinking cursor and after 2 minutes it shows "Triggering uevents" but thats it.

graysky commented on 2017-08-17 19:13 (UTC)

I bumped to 4.12.8-1 but will hold on building for [repo-ck] until CK verifies the recent merges (github) will not be released to ck3 any time soon.

@graysky: See!msg/bfq-iosched/j4QUK4IPOhw/CY1LmmhcAwAJ, as previously mentioned - apparently other kernel devs have removed compile-time scheduler defaults. I've been able to "fix" it for now with a udev rule, slightly modified from what @vp1981 posted: ACTION=="add|change", KERNEL=="sd[a-z]", ATTR{queue/scheduler}="bfq" (The wildcard was causing several false positives and errors to show up in the system log while booting.)

graysky commented on 2017-08-15 21:20 (UTC) (edited on 2017-08-15 21:25 (UTC) by graysky)

@mrkline - Interesting... I get the same. EDIT:

mrkline commented on 2017-08-15 20:20 (UTC)

Scratch that, 4.12.7-2 seems to have the same issue.

mrkline commented on 2017-08-15 18:40 (UTC)

Apparently ck-2 contains changes to make BFQ the default scheduler: So we should be good to go as soon as @graysky bumps this.

@mrkline, you may ask post-factum to translate new on, see, but this is receipt from the news: [russian] Планировщики ввода-вывода при использовании blk-mq нельзя указывать через командную строку ядра в загрузчике. Вместо этого используйте правило udev, например: ACTION=="add|change", KERNEL=="sd[a-z]*", ATTR{queue/scheduler}="bfq" Чтобы включить подсистему blk-mq, ядро нужно собрать с опцией CONFIG_SCSI_MQ_DEFAULT=y или передать параметр scsi_mod.use_blk_mq=1 из загрузчика. [/russian] (my translation) ... use udev rule, for example: ACTION=="add|change", KERNEL=="sd[a-z]*", ATTR{queue/scheduler}="bfq" In order to enable blk-mq subsystem the kernel has to be configured with option CONFIG_SCSI_MQ_DEFAULT=y or pass parameter scsi_mod.use_blk_mq=1 in boot loader.

@graysky 4.12.7-1 boots and runs fine on several of my boxen. The only curious tidbit is that even though BFQ is set as the default: $ zcat /proc/config.gz | grep -i BFQ CONFIG_DEFAULT_BFQ=y CONFIG_DEFAULT_IOSCHED="bfq" CONFIG_IOSCHED_BFQ=y CONFIG_BFQ_GROUP_IOSCHED=y The kernel is defaulting to mq-deadline: $ cat /sys/block/sda/queue/scheduler [mq-deadline] kyber bfq none Is this what @kwe was discussing below?

Building 4.12.7-1. Apart for the changes in config so you have to configure lots more than before we are missing the CPU optimizations. Update: Got a non-bootable kernel. Trying a second build, config seems better now as expected (I'll blame ccache which I disabled now). #2 Update: Non bootable again, stuck at "Triggering udevents"

pedrogabriel commented on 2017-08-15 02:03 (UTC)

4.12.7-1 works like a charm.

kwe commented on 2017-08-14 19:58 (UTC)

@graysky That config option will disappear in the future because the behavior will be enabled by default: Apparently this is planned for 4.13: linux/drivers/scsi$ git tag --contains 5c279bd9e40624f4ab6e688671026d6005b066fa v4.13-rc1 v4.13-rc2 v4.13-rc3 v4.13-rc4 v4.13-rc5 So, when it comes around, you might want to remove it again. :)

4.12.7-1 boots, everything seems kosher so far.

graysky commented on 2017-08-14 18:31 (UTC)

@zebulon - Please try 4.12.7-1 which contains a suggestion by CK to fix. Does it boot and run? I cannot build and test for some time.

-ck is still buggy, unfortunately. I'd recommend downgrade for the time being.

@zerophase - Yes, I too get a non-bootable. I emailed CK. @kwe - Agreed, thanks for pointing that out. Will be edited in the -3 release.

kwe commented on 2017-08-12 16:09 (UTC)

@graysky How much sense does the _BFQ_enable_ option have with 4.12? $ grep -i bfq config.x86_64 CONFIG_DEFAULT_BFQ=y CONFIG_DEFAULT_IOSCHED="bfq" CONFIG_IOSCHED_BFQ=y CONFIG_BFQ_GROUP_IOSCHED=y

@graysky: unfortunately I cannot boot. It compiled fine (with Skylake optimisation) and seemed to install. But for the first time with the ck kernel, it hangs at the very beginning of the boot sequence. I can only see systemd version, then nothing happens.

zebulon commented on 2017-08-12 15:27 (UTC)

@graysky: thanks. I was wondering why MuQSS had disappeared from config.i686.

@zebulon - Fuck, you're correct. Fixed in 4.12.6-2 just now.

zebulon commented on 2017-08-12 14:53 (UTC)

@graysky: thanks for maintaining this package. One thing I noticed: up to 4.11 it asked via a numbered menu for the kind of CPU optimisation the user wanted. This time it did not, is this normal?

Just for the sake of pedantry, next release you may want to change the URL preceding _BFQ_enable_ to as the fragment in the original comment is dead and the linux-ck page links there now anyway.

r08 commented on 2017-07-11 20:35 (UTC)

@QuartzDragon @artafinde Thanks for the feedback. I guess I'm not the only one... Will test this using CONFIG_HZ_PERIODIC=y to see if I get the same latency issues..

artafinde commented on 2017-07-09 07:17 (UTC) (edited on 2017-07-09 07:30 (UTC) by artafinde)

@QuartzDragon: I have similar behaviour with my laptop here (Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4510U CPU @ 2.00GHz). I was setting the tick to 1000Hz before MuQSS but on the first iterations of MuQSS I think it was better. Do you get same freezes with linux from core? Is it fixed if you compile your own -ARCH and set tick to 1000Hz?

QuartzDragon commented on 2017-07-08 22:38 (UTC)

When I change CONFIG_HZ to 1000, CONFIG_HZ_100_MUQSS seems to be automatically unset.

artafinde commented on 2017-07-08 08:57 (UTC) (edited on 2017-07-08 08:57 (UTC) by artafinde)

MuQSS 0.150 reverted the Hz back to 100Hz and I think that's the recommended value from ck. @QuartzDragon, r08 do you change both the below: CONFIG_HZ_100_MUQSS=y CONFIG_HZ=100

graysky commented on 2017-07-08 07:37 (UTC)

@Quartz and r08 - Post to ck's blog?

QuartzDragon commented on 2017-07-08 06:54 (UTC) (edited on 2017-07-08 06:55 (UTC) by QuartzDragon)

In the past, I too had noticed weird stuttering using 100Hz, so now I always set it to 1000Hz. System is smooth. :)

r08 commented on 2017-07-07 10:51 (UTC)

Interesting how I noticed slow downs using the default MuQSS@100Hz while using Firefox and running Steam games like Team Fortress 2. Setting it to 1000Hz fixed the latency issues I was having. Should 1000Hz tick be the recommended setting for a "normal desktop user?" Running old Intel Core 2 T9500@2.60Ghz

vp1981 commented on 2017-07-05 02:43 (UTC)

@j1simon: I think SuperIce97 meant that if you compare output for 'native' for both Skylake and Kaby Lake then you don't see any difference. I have two hosts one with Skylake and other with Kaby Lake. I compared they 'native' output and the difference: $ diff -y --suppress-common-lines native-sl.out native-kl.out -march= skylake | -march= broadwell -mtune= skylake | -mtune= generic For example, this is difference between Sandy Bridge and Skylake: $ diff -y --suppress-common-lines native-sb.out native-sl.out -mabm [disabled] | -mabm [enabled] -madx [disabled] | -madx [enabled] -march= sandybridge | -march= skylake -mavx2 [disabled] | -mavx2 [enabled] -mbmi [disabled] | -mbmi [enabled] -mbmi2 [disabled] | -mbmi2 [enabled] -mclflushopt [disabled] | -mclflushopt [enabled] -mf16c [disabled] | -mf16c [enabled] -mfma [disabled] | -mfma [enabled] -mfsgsbase [disabled] | -mfsgsbase [enabled] -mlzcnt [disabled] | -mlzcnt [enabled] -mmovbe [disabled] | -mmovbe [enabled] -mprfchw [disabled] | -mprfchw [enabled] -mrdrnd [disabled] | -mrdrnd [enabled] -mrdseed [disabled] | -mrdseed [enabled] -msgx [disabled] | -msgx [enabled] -mtune= sandybridge | -mtune= skylake -mxsavec [disabled] | -mxsavec [enabled] -mxsaves [disabled] | -mxsaves [enabled] Sandy Bridge: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2410M CPU @ 2.30GHz Skylake: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-6200U CPU @ 2.30GHz Kaby Lake: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-7400 CPU @ 3.00GHz @SuperIce97: at first I was confused why 'native' reports that arch is 'broadwell' and even thought that GCC don't support this new processor. But if you are right about behavior of GCC when one passes 'native' vs 'NAME' then it is related only to 'generic' build for Kaby Lake and that processor is fully supported by GCC.

SuperIce97 commented on 2017-07-04 21:57 (UTC) (edited on 2017-07-04 21:59 (UTC) by SuperIce97)

@j1simon: I believe this is because gcc optimizes in a way to make sure that all CPUs from that architecture will run correctly, meaning that if 1 CPU is missing an instruction, it will not be included in the optimization. This leads to differences as some CPUs in the same architecture supports newer instructions. Here is the diff between the broadwell arch optimizations and native for an Intel 3205u Celeron Broadwell CPU: diff -y --suppress-common-lines broadwell.out native.out -mabm [disabled] | -mabm [enabled] -mcx16 [disabled] | -mcx16 [enabled] -mfsgsbase [disabled] | -mfsgsbase [enabled] -mfxsr [disabled] | -mfxsr [enabled] -mlzcnt [disabled] | -mlzcnt [enabled] -mmmx [disabled] | -mmmx [enabled] -mmovbe [disabled] | -mmovbe [enabled] -mno-sse4 [enabled] | -mno-sse4 [disabled] -mpclmul [disabled] | -mpclmul [enabled] -mpopcnt [disabled] | -mpopcnt [enabled] -mprfchw [disabled] | -mprfchw [enabled] -mrdrnd [disabled] | -mrdrnd [enabled] -mrdseed [disabled] | -mrdseed [enabled] -msahf [disabled] | -msahf [enabled] -msse [disabled] | -msse [enabled] -msse2 [disabled] | -msse2 [enabled] -msse3 [disabled] | -msse3 [enabled] -msse4 [disabled] | -msse4 [enabled] -msse4.1 [disabled] | -msse4.1 [enabled] -msse4.2 [disabled] | -msse4.2 [enabled] -mssse3 [disabled] | -mssse3 [enabled] As you can see, on my Broadwell CPU, broadwell optimization != native optimizations. Also notice how "native" only enables optimizations instead of disabling. This is why I usually recommend -march=native, as you will be able to optimize your CPU as much as possible. For Kaby Lake vs Skylake, here is the Wikipedia page listing the differences (which are all clock speed/process, socket/chipset, and GPU changes, not microarchitecture changes):

@francoism90: Kaby Lake has an identical architecture to Skylake (they just improved the manufacturing process which simply allows for higher clock speeds), so you could just use use the Skylake optimized version. You could compile it with native optimizations.

graysky commented on 2017-05-20 10:24 (UTC)

I can't read any content from that hatebin provider. Try using a gist on github or another provider. In any case, you will need to build both packages first on a machine that isn't running linux-ck with nvidia-ck installed due to the versioning dependencies. Or, uninstall all of your ck packages first and boot into the standard arch kernel, then build them stepwise. I hope you understand.

mrturcot commented on 2017-05-20 10:16 (UTC) (edited on 2017-05-20 10:17 (UTC) by mrturcot)

@graysky not quite srry if I was not clear. My pending updates are Linux ck and Nvidia ck. It does not matter now I initiate the upgrade, all ways lead to this error Tried to upgrade just Linux-ck first by itself and it fails, tried nvidia-ck & it installs linux-ck as a dependency first and fails with that error as well. Thanks

graysky commented on 2017-05-20 09:51 (UTC)

@graysky: Perhaps this is a dumb question, but is there a reason the build process no longer prompts for your CPU type? I now have to go set CONFIG_MNATIVE and CONFIG_X86_P6_NOP with makenconfig again - the menu you introduced in December has been much more convenient.

Bump to v4.11.1-1 Changelog: Commit: Linux changes: Notes: I need some feedback on the 4.11 release, specifically the extra packages such as nvidia-304xx-ck, nvidia-340xx-ck, broadcom-wl-ck, and virtualbox-ck modules. I have successfully build all of these but can only test nvidia-ck and virtualbox-ck since I do not have older nvidia hardware nor broadcom-wl hardware. Once I get some positive feedback, I will build up the 4.11.x series in [repo-ck] but for now, will hold. Also 4.11.2 is due out tomorrow.

QuartzDragon commented on 2017-05-15 05:38 (UTC)

Do you have the PKGBUILD for 4.11 sitting around? Would love to test it. :)

graysky commented on 2017-05-14 15:46 (UTC)

The major show stopper are the nvidia drivers at the moment. The kernel builds fine but I don't want mess up users of nvidia-xxx.

hekel commented on 2017-05-14 14:49 (UTC)

@graysky I see, thanks. I've only recently started using your repo/pkgbuild again. I guess I spoiled myself by building my own asap for so long.

@graysky Gotcha. For dkms, virtualbox-host-dkms builds correctly here. nvidia-dkms requires a MODULE_LICENSE edit for nvidia-drm/nvidia-drm-linux.c. I have not tested broadcom.

How to persistently enable bfq scheduler? I tried adding "elevator=bfq" in kernel parameter as suggested by Arch's wiki, but it didn't do anything. Thanks! Updates I just found out Antergos by default has a script trying to set scheduler in: /etc/udev/rules.d/60-schedulers.rules So I commented everything in that file and it's good now, nothing is wrong with linux-ck. I guess Antergos isn't real Arch, eh? :D

mradermaxlol commented on 2017-03-03 21:05 (UTC)

@graysky nope, it's *probably* not gonna be there because of AMD devs' habits, I think, but that's a good idea to try to push a backport to 4.10.X. Will do that ASAP.

graysky commented on 2017-03-03 20:22 (UTC)

@mrader - I tend to not put out-of-tree patches in the PKGBUILD and [repo-ck]... Do you know if this is planned to be back-ported in the 4.10 stable queue?[1] I currently see nothing there... 1.

mradermaxlol commented on 2017-03-03 20:13 (UTC)

@graysky is it possible to include this - - patch in the next PKGREL? It works for me and people on bugtracker, so it should be just fine to include it. It's a cherry-pick from the in-development 4.11 kernel, and thus would be useless and safe to remove after you update the package to that version.

graysky commented on 2017-03-01 19:42 (UTC)

@cooljay - again, recommend that you open a FS against the ARCH kernel

cooljay032 commented on 2017-03-01 13:28 (UTC)

graysky commented on 2017-02-28 21:16 (UTC)

@cooljay - It's not in the official ARCH kernel either. I simply mirror ARCH's config (with the ck changes). The module has either been dropped upstream or we aren't configured to build it... you might wanna open up a flyspray against the kernel. When I look at the 4.9 -> 4.10 commit, I don't see that we dropped the config option containing 'serial' though:

@mrkline That's a bit odd, yeah. nvidia-libgl is now on version 378.13-3 but nvidia-dkms is 378.13-2. You need 378.13-3 for Linux 4.10 support, so I wonder why they haven't pushed that dkms update yet.

mrkline commented on 2017-02-28 00:26 (UTC)

Ah - turns out the patch needed for 4.10 is in nvidia-dkms 378.13-3, which is currently only available in the testing repo. Installing it by hand from did the trick.

@gelmo Please read graysky's wiki for linux-ck before flagging out-of-date. He's been doing a very good job with this package for years now, your updated PKGBUILD is not needed...

Gelmo commented on 2017-02-20 07:11 (UTC) (edited on 2017-02-20 08:58 (UTC) by Gelmo)

Here's a working PKGBUILD for 4.10: Updated versioning, commented out the upstream patches, commented out the console loglevel patch (implemented now; I got this option presented to me pre-nconfig). Edit: The loglevel option is now available in nconfig under Kernel Hacking Edit 2: I also had to comment out the fpu patch on my setup. If you do this, don't forget to comment it out in the sources and prepare sections. Currently writing this from 4.10.0-1-ck, no issues.

VerruckteFuchs commented on 2017-02-06 20:58 (UTC)

@graysky @artafinde A simple makepkg -sri after clearing out the src directory sorted it out. It looks like something broke after pacaur got updated.

artafinde commented on 2017-02-06 20:07 (UTC)

Just follow the wiki:

fekle commented on 2017-02-06 20:00 (UTC)

@graysky to wait and see if other people experience this problem ;) you're right though, just tried installing manually and it worked just fine - oops.

graysky commented on 2017-02-06 18:54 (UTC)

Why would trying in a few days make a difference? Don't build with an AUR helper. Those things are way more trouble than they're worth. Just build with makepkg and profit.

VerruckteFuchs commented on 2017-02-06 18:40 (UTC)

@artafinde I've run cd ~/.cache/pacaur/linux-ck/src/linux-4.9 make clean #I also tried make mrproper (used in the PKGBUILD) and make distclean I also tried pacaur -Sc to see if that did anything to help. As far as I can tell skimming over the PKGBUILD, in the prepare() step make mrproper comes after the initial patching and should clean the build environment. Oddly enough I had no issues upgrading linux-ck on my laptop, but on my desktop it's having trouble with the prepare() step for some reason. It might be because I upgraded pacaur before upgrading linux-ck and there is a change in PKGBUILD syntax/formatting or something else. On my laptop I'm pretty sure I upgraded linux-ck and pacaur at the same time, which means the previous version of pacaur handled the installation. That's all I can think of that's different.

fekle commented on 2017-02-06 16:57 (UTC)

@VerruckteFuch I've got the same problem: Tried deleting .cache/pacaur, choosing both yes and no when asked (see paste), to no avail. Anyway, I'll try again in a few days, and as always, thanks for the great work @graysky!

@graysky the variable is declared if and only if suspend-to-RAM is enabled, otherwise compiler cannot find the variable therefore complains. I manually compiled the kernel sources with patches you provided.

I have created my own package from this (forked basically) adding support for Reiser4 and with a config optimized solely for the Dell XPS 9550 laptops (in its various configurations). If its OK for you I'd like to name this Linux-CK-Reiser4 but with clear text that this is not made by you (in case shit hits the fan) but you will ofcourse gain the credit for the inital package the fork is based on. So Im basically using your PKGBUILD but with other options, the same patches but with a couple ones added, and grouped as ck-skylake to support your pre-compiled modules at repo-ck. Is this OK?

graysky commented on 2016-12-22 19:02 (UTC)

I updated linux-ck and all its daughter packages (broadcom-ck nvidia-x-ck, and virtualbox-ck) but currently nvidia 304xx doens't build without an update to 304.134 and currently nvidia-304xx-utils in [extra] is stuck on 304.132.

@graysky Can you provide a PKGBUILD (maybe through gist) to see how much interaction will be needed? I personally have to edit PKGBUILD anyway since I'm building with modprobed and BFS enabled by default (and using "-march=native")

nTia89 commented on 2016-12-18 11:43 (UTC) (edited on 2016-12-18 11:45 (UTC) by nTia89)

yes, missing of optimizations without -march=native is my worry! (I know, this seems false but it is true... hence, any modification is welcome, even if this mean to press some key my doubt is another: who builds this package from AUR, I imagine, wants the best optimizations overall, so, why "-march=native" is not the default choice?

zerophase commented on 2016-12-18 10:59 (UTC)

@graysky depends on how it's implemented. But, in general if a config file has new additions in a package bump it interrupts kernel compilation till I resolve the issue. I imagine whatever you implement will work with yaourt as well.

graysky commented on 2016-12-18 10:44 (UTC)

A modification I am considering is to have the AUR package provide unmodified config files for x86_64 and for i686 with respect to the gcc patch. What this means is that whenever you build linux-ck yourself, makepkg (or am I assuming your AUR helper) will pause and wait for you to select from the list of CPU optimizations (with default being a simple enter key). This will circumvent the need to modify the PKGBUILD enabled the nconfig option, and subsequent poking around in the nconfig itself. Potentially way faster and easier for the user. 1) How do people feel about this? 2) Will the added interactivity break AUR helpers (I am a pure makepkg person myself)?

mrkline commented on 2016-12-18 05:29 (UTC) (edited on 2016-12-18 05:35 (UTC) by mrkline)

+1 for bringing back `-march=native`. If you look at what flags are actually passed to the actual compiler (cc1), it provides much more machine-specific information (e.g., cache size, etc.) than `-march=<CPU family>`. As other users have suggested, it seems like there are workarounds for CPUs where it caused trouble. Even if workarounds don't exist, why remove the option from *all* users for the sake of a minority? A simple warning to avoid the flag for the few setups where it causes trouble should suffice.

SuperIce97 commented on 2016-12-17 21:02 (UTC)

Is there anything wrong with the version of your patch before the last commit that removed the native option? If you choose native, it automatically gives you the option for P6 NOPS but it's disabled by default. I think that's a pretty safe way to do it. The help message also has the pretty straightforward message of "Say Y if you have Intel CPU newer than Pentium Pro, N otherwise." at the end, so I believe that anyone who enables Native optimizations would know what to do there. For the issue with Atom CPUs having issues when set to native, you could just add "[causes issues on some Atom CPUs]" to the name of the native option. I don't think this needs to be too complex.

graysky commented on 2016-12-17 19:57 (UTC)

@SuperIce97 - I am not skilled enough to implement the logic for the X86_P6_NOP needed. While true that the native option may pass more tokens to make, if you look at the unpatched Makefile for a selection of core2, they are merely passing march=core2 option[1]. 1.

SuperIce97 commented on 2016-12-17 19:53 (UTC)

Also, I noticed that on my SandyBridge laptop, march=native enables a ton more instructions than march=sandybrdige (my CPU is a 2630QM which is a SandyBridge). That means that we are not getting the full potential by specifying an arch vs native arch

SuperIce97 commented on 2016-12-17 19:40 (UTC)

Looking at issue #17 on the gcc patch's github page though, I don't think it would be that difficult to enable native optimizations and just have a X86_P6_NOP as an additional option like tpruzina suggested. The reason I prefer using native instead of the specific arch is because some lower end CPUs (at least with Intel) don't seem to actually support every instruction of their arch for some reason. I used to have a Chromebook C720 with the Haswell Celeron 2955u (I now have a C740 with a Broadwell Celeron 3205u) and I was using the Haswell kernel until it decided that it wouldn't boot (not sure if a change in the kernel or gcc caused it; it was a long time ago and I was too lazy to hunt down the issue) if I compiled it with Haswell. With native on the other hand, the kernel worked just fine. Would it be possible to reimplement march=native but have the extra configurable as suggested by tpruzina?

graysky commented on 2016-12-17 18:57 (UTC) (edited on 2016-12-17 18:58 (UTC) by graysky)

@nTia89 - I removed it as handling dependencies for newer/older hardware would be too difficult[1]... just select the hardware option that corresponds to your CPU[2] and functionally, there is no difference. 1. 2.

@Rainmaker - I like to use the official PKGBUILD as a template for this one since it minimizes both the chance of errors and my time to keep it in sync. Plus, I think many might not want to have the extra bulk of the headers package since it's only really needed to build modules. Not sure what you mean by split out the config. @BSB6 - It's the holidays people travel... seems to get this this pretty consistently this time of year.

QuartzDragon commented on 2016-12-15 22:51 (UTC)

@BS86 So what? Perhaps there's a good reason for it?

QuartzDragon commented on 2016-12-15 22:50 (UTC)

@Rainmaker I believe that the linux-ck PKGBUILD already does this?

BS86 commented on 2016-12-15 22:40 (UTC) (edited on 2016-12-15 22:40 (UTC) by BS86)

lol - arch still has only 4.8.13 in their official repositories, and no 4.9 - even Manjaro already has 4.8.14 and 4.9.0 in the stable repos -.-

Rainmaker commented on 2016-12-15 22:07 (UTC)

First of all, thank you for being very on top of all updates. If I may suggest 2 improvements: - You can build multiple packages in a single PKGBUILD. Because linux-ck and linux-ck-headers are likely to be installed together, may I suggest merging both packages to a single package. Building multiple packages in the same PKGBUILD is something that, for example, clion does. Effectively, it is setting pkgname= to a space separated list. - Could you split out the config? Each time I do a git pull, I need to open up PKGBUILD, and edit the parameters. By having a separate configuration file, I can setup git to ignore that file (with assume-unchanged), which saves me from having to set the parameters over and over.

@niceman The mainline kernel does include the msr module, as does basically every kernel in the main and AUR repos (including this one). If you enable nconfig for this kernel, you can see under "Processor Type and Features -> /dev/cpu/*/msr - Model-specific register support" that msr is indeed enabled as kernel module. Perhaps your device does not support msr? (I have an old Intel Atom machine that I use as a micro server that does not support msr and thus does not support i7z, which I would have liked to have been able to use)

niceman commented on 2016-12-08 19:17 (UTC)

hello, where can I find the msr module ? powertop seems to need it. The mainline kernel doesn't seem to include it too, is the module built in the kernel ?

Bump to v4.8.9-3 Changelog: Added a warning about initramfs rename for [repo-ck] users. Commit:

graysky commented on 2016-11-20 12:01 (UTC)

@snack - Yes, this naming scheme is the default now with upstream changes (hook and PKGBUILD). Since linux-ck-core2 from [repo-ck] has a pkgbase=linux-ck-core2, all users of [repo-ck] or of the AUR building a non-standard pkgbase will need to update their boot loader. See: If I was more savvy about this, I would have added a pacman warning to the post install, but even then, you only reach a subset of users.

snack commented on 2016-11-20 09:42 (UTC)

I fixed by removing all the old linux-ck files from /boot (keeping the linux-ck-core2 ones) and substituting "linux-ck" with "linux-ck-core2" everywhere in /boot/grub/grub.cfg

snack commented on 2016-11-20 09:31 (UTC) (edited on 2016-11-20 09:34 (UTC) by snack)

Update to linux-ck-core2 4.8.9-1/2 from repo broke my system. Boot fails because my grub configuration (which used to work up to 4.8.6) searches for /boot/vmlinuz-linux-ck, while with 4.8.9 I got /boot/vmlinuz-linux-ck-core2. Fixing it in the grub command line the boot fails again complaining that /lib/modules/4.8.9-2-ck-core2/modules.devname is missing, while the file itself is present. The boot media is an ext4 ssd. Should I update something in my system configuration or is the linux-ck-core2 package broken?

graysky commented on 2016-11-19 12:27 (UTC)

@fafryd - Yes, linux-ck is shipping 99-linux.hook since 4.8.8-2. I posted in the bug report you referenced asking if the hook needs a unique name. Right now linux-ck shares the name with linux which might be a problem. We can make the change if needed. Thank you for bring this to my attention.

@QD - No sure what you mean. You mention errors but provide no output and you mention references but provide no line numbers. Finally, you mention larger scope that PKGBUILD but provide no examples... I can't really act on anything you're reporting. If the references to the vanilla kernel are some variables in the PKGBUILD or linux.{preset,install} make sure you inspect them in a shell as many are substitutions that simply don't get substituted. For example, PKGBUILD line 262.

QuartzDragon commented on 2016-11-19 05:48 (UTC)

Hey graysky, I was looking at the PKGBUILD, due to build errors, and there are many references that only apply to the vanilla Arch Linux kernel. And it's not just the PKGBUILD that needs fixing... justing letting you know. Cheers, QD

The mainline kernel has some interesting changes with 4.8.8-2 and above. I'm not sure if these should be integrated into the ck kernel, but I would say it's worth a look (mainly some sed cleanups and using a new trigger to generate the initramfs as a post-transaction hook):

@Saren - Correct: dual socket users will need to build from the AUR since NUMA is disabled by default (recommended by CK). @QuartzD - Yes, it would be... I currently build 20 different package sets for [repo-ck] and toggling this on/off would double that to 40 and only serve to confuse users. After all, what percentage of [repo-ck] users have a dual socket motherboard? @SuperIce and @QuartzD - Yes, corrected in 4.8.5-3.

Would it be a hassle to maintain NUMA and non-NUMA versions in Repo-CK?

Saren commented on 2016-10-29 06:08 (UTC)

With NUMA disabled by default, as a dual socket workstation user, does it mean I have to recompile kernel every time when upgrading it?

QuartzDragon commented on 2016-10-29 05:04 (UTC) (edited on 2016-10-29 05:05 (UTC) by QuartzDragon)

It's being set to 100 Hz, it's just that the "_1K_HZ_ticks" variable is confusing. Should be renamed to "_100_HZ_ticks", now, to reflect the changes. Just guessing you missed it somehow, graysky?

I was one of the persons who had issues with NUMA on an AMD FX 8100. About 6 months ago I changed to i7 6700 and disabled NUMA. No issues so far. I did had btrfs corruption with linux-ck early MuQSS versions (v110 I think) so I was a late adopter but now running pretty stable for days. I think the NUMA issue were related to AM3+ socket.

commented on 2016-10-27 04:28 (UTC)

I'm running linux-ck with NUMA disabled since about two weeks. I haven't yet experienced any problems with my Skylake CPU.

graysky commented on 2016-10-26 21:16 (UTC) (edited on 2016-10-27 19:14 (UTC) by graysky)

@QD - It's a small increase using a make endpoint in my experience (see the flyspray I note in the PKGBUILD comments). It could be that other endpoints reveal more substantial gains as well. In any case, NUMA is really for servers with multiple sockets; it has no point on a single socket motherboard is my understanding. Linux-ck had it disabled for a long time until some combination of upstream/BFS + NUMA disabled was believed to be responsible for problems which is when I disabled the code to disable it. Now that MuQSS has replaced BFS, this may not be the case any more. Several users have posted to the AUR reporting stability with it disabled as is my experience as well.

QuartzDragon commented on 2016-10-26 20:50 (UTC)

How much of a speed increase does disabling NUMA actually give, anyway? I've never really felt the difference.

graysky commented on 2016-10-26 19:17 (UTC)

Greg just tagged 4.8.5-rc1 and has it scheduled to release on Friday/noon UTC[1]. We can give disabling NUMA a whirl in 4.8.5-1 if there are no reports linking this setting to bad behavior with MuQSS (I am not experiencing anything bad on my Haswell). 1.

I can but I would like to get some additional feedback from others who build with NUMA disabled since it caused problems in the past. I too have it disabled on my workstation without ill effects. Can other AUR users please comment. If you have NUMA disabled, are you running a stable 4.8.4-4?

graysky commented on 2016-10-23 16:53 (UTC)

@mono - the difference between AUR and [repo-ck] right now is that AUR uses 4.8.4-3 which has ck3 (MuQSS) whereas [repo-ck] uses 4.8.4-1 with ck1 (bfs). I have a dual core system that black screened on booting with ck3 last I checked but there are two patches in 'pending' that I need to try first. I think if they fix that problem, I will go ahead and build 4.8.4-3 for [repo-ck] but I won't be able to test until tomorrow.

I dunno yet, keep having mini system freezes when playing certain games on steam with the 4.8 series. No issues whatsoever with 4.7.8.

Everything is behaving fine with linux-ck 4.8.4 and MuQSS v0.115 (like v0.114). My CPU is an i7-6700K.

No issues here with MuQSS on my piledriver. on 4.8.4-1 I am trying out some advanced amdgpu package, which checks for a specific config. Would it be much effort to include it, so that this check does not fail? Kernel 4.8.4-1-ck3-ck not supported CONFIG_DRM_AMDGPU_CIK is missing

I have a question regarding some modules I am missing when I try to compile the kernel locally. These modules also fail to load with the repo-ck 4.8.3 kernel. The 4.7.6 kernel from repo-ck still had them. Specifically, I have a Dell Inspiron laptop, so I am using i8kutils to get my temp-sensors and my fan to work. According to modprobed-db, this is pulling in the following modules: - dell_laptop - dell_smbios - dell_smm_hwmon - dell_wmi However, when trying to build the kernel, these modules are missing/nowhere to be found. Can anybody help point me in the right direction, where I can pull these in from?

ooo commented on 2016-10-21 10:56 (UTC)

@graysky, Fair enough. Altough The pending/ patches for bfs512 aren't really 'development' patches, but fixes to bugs that were discovered after bfs512/ck1 release. My understanding is that ck simply didn't want to make a new release, but still recommends adding the fixes. Since some people seem to be having issues with bfs512, it would make sense to me to apply those. I have no problems myself, but I guess anyone having issues with linux-ck-4.8* should try if adding the pending bfs512 patches helps.

nTia89 commented on 2016-10-21 10:09 (UTC)

@SuperIce97 I posted here just to advice other users...

graysky commented on 2016-10-21 09:41 (UTC)

@ooo - I don't want to include pending patches without CK specifically asking since this is not a development package. You are free to modify the PKGBUILD on your own of course. @eduardoeae - I saw the release but am a bit reluctant to bump and push to [repo-ck] since a few reports to the blog you linked indicate issues still. Perhaps the AUR can have it but I will hold off on publishing to the repo initially.

eduardoeae commented on 2016-10-21 01:33 (UTC)

-ck2 is out. I'm not flagging as out of date because MuQSS is now the default. Probably would want to wait a bit before jumping into it.

ooo commented on 2016-10-20 22:55 (UTC)

How about including the pending patches for bfs512? They contain bugfixes, and are recommended by ck.

rob77 commented on 2016-10-20 21:48 (UTC)

linux-ck 4.8.3-1 working fine here, with MuQSS enabled, BFQ enabled and compiled with intel haswell optimizations.

SuperIce97 commented on 2016-10-20 17:10 (UTC)

Everybody who is having problems: Have you tried running the stock 4.8.2 kernel from the main Arch repos? If that has problems as well, there's nothing that we can do. Also, if you are running a 4.7 kernel, please update immediately to 4.7.9. A large security vulnerability was found and fixed. The exploit using this vulnerability has been found in the wild (and the bug has existed for 11 years). For people running 4.8.2, I expect @graysky to bump the version soon. Please update immediately when he does.

I've just updated to ck-4.8.2 and my system (Dell XPS 13, broadwell 9343) stucks on boot (during the systemd boot process...) the error is related to "i2c designware..." going back to latest 4.7 NB: no extra options enabled from the AUR package, just this boot parameters: elevator=bfq and nmi_watchdog=0

bacondropped commented on 2016-10-20 13:02 (UTC)

Jesus, @graysky, you're rolling this package out faster than I update my system. Immense props for that.

rob77 commented on 2016-10-20 09:59 (UTC)

@Tjuh It's an error message introduced in Linux 2.6.35 and up. Basically it happens when your system doesn't support APIC. It's a harmless error, but doesn't look all that nice. You can make it go away by adding noapic to the end of your grub boot line. Adding it from Tazpanel: 1. Boot--> Boot Loader 2. Click on View or edit menu.lst 3. Click Edit 4. Add noapic to the end of the kernel line so it looks something like this: kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.37-slitaz root=/dev/hda1 quiet noapic 5. Click Save and you're done. The error should be gone the next time you boot Not upgraded kernel yet but will check to see if that fixes it this evening

Tjuh commented on 2016-10-20 09:27 (UTC)

Getting this weird error -ERROR: Unable to locate IOAPIC for GSI 37- in my journallogs with MuqSS, 1k_HZ_ticks, NUMAdisable, localmodcfg and BFQ_enable enabled. No such error or any other issues with the same settings enabled on the previous version.

zerophase commented on 2016-10-20 08:56 (UTC)

@VerruckteFuchs I'm on Haswell as well. I've been up for close to 8 hours without issue, compiling projects and running services that stress the cpu. I don't run mpd, though. Have you noticed any issues in terms of cpu load and the crash?

snack commented on 2016-10-20 07:38 (UTC)

It seems that virtualbox-ck-host-modules-core2 (and possibly other virtualbox-ck-host-modules packages) in repo have been built with a wrong dependency from linux-ck-core2 version since pacman says: $ sudo pacman -Su :: Starting full system upgrade... resolving dependencies... looking for conflicting packages... error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies) :: virtualbox-ck-host-modules-core2: installing linux-ck-core2 (4.8.2-1) breaks dependency 'linux-ck-core2<4.8'

VerruckteFuchs commented on 2016-10-20 01:37 (UTC)

Trying to run mpd results in an instant freeze/lockup of my Haswell machine. I do have a previous playlist queue from when it was last open, if that info helps at all.

@agm28011997 - CK has stuff in his pending queue beyond MuQSS108 but I don't want to add continually add these since the rate of development of MuQSS is as rapid as it has been. Once MuQSS finalized and replaces BFS, this package will be here applying it.

Noticeable performance loss... compared to 4.7.1-ck since BFS 8...

It's working nicely with or withouth the MuQSS, I'm actually not using MuQSS because it someway brokes the fan driver of my notebook (with or withouth NUMA), but exceptly that, it's working nicely.

Good to hear, pedro... this is with MuQSS disabled, correct? I would like to hear from more users before I enable it globally again (and in the repo).

pedrogabriel commented on 2016-10-07 15:27 (UTC)

I'm using it with NUMA disabled, no problems so far. (Intel Haswell chip)

zerophase commented on 2016-10-07 05:07 (UTC)

@graysky those nvme patches are listed on the archwiki for fixing an issue with powersaving with nvme disks. I'm just trying to figure out if I should add those patches to the pkgbuild when I pick up an nvme drive in a couple weeks. I'll at least test to see if there are any incompatibility issues. If they work without issue, should they get added into the ck repo till reaching mainline?

graysky commented on 2016-10-07 00:07 (UTC)

@jwhickman - Dunno about NUMA. Have to ask some users to test and verify that it is or is not a problem. Anyone willing to test? Also, I don't think MuQSS is stable at this point. We'll probably have BFS until the 4.9 release if I read CK's blog correctly. In either case, the linux-ck brand is here to stay; MuQSS will still have the ck1 brand as I understand it.

jwhickman commented on 2016-10-06 12:52 (UTC) (edited on 2016-10-06 12:58 (UTC) by jwhickman)

Thanks @graysky! I modified this to build MQS for k4.8; no problems besides having to comment out the BFQ patches due to a compile failure, not unsurprisingly. I was hoping the k4.7 BFQ patches would work on k4.8, since the patches applied without issue. :) Question for you; is the 'NUMA disable issue' still relevant, as it's been around a long time, plus now this is MQS. Also, I noticed in my k4.8 build, the config showed a new tick rate of 250 Hz, so was also curious about that. /======================================================= # Running with a 1000 HZ tick rate (vs the ARCH 300) is reported to solve the issues with the bfs/linux 3.1x and suspend. [...] _1k_HZ_ticks=y ### Do not disable NUMA until CK figures out why doing so causes panics for some users! [...] #_NUMAdisable= =======================================================/ In commented original discussion on the tick rate, ck has said, "(16 September 2013 at 18:55) If it still needs 1000Hz to work correctly, then there is still a bug." Anyway, thanks again!

graysky commented on 2016-10-06 09:05 (UTC)

OK... unofficial patches. I was wondering if something was in the merge queue on the topic that I didn't see.

zerophase commented on 2016-10-06 03:15 (UTC)

Anyone know if the Linux-nvme kernel patches have any issues with ck? Going to be picking up an nvme drive in a couple week and just want to check if anyone knows of any issues.

graysky commented on 2016-10-05 18:09 (UTC)

@Pedrogabriel - Yes, if you enable the build option. I just updated 4.7.6-1 to pull in MuQSS v106 (disabled by default).

pedrogabriel commented on 2016-10-05 15:45 (UTC)

Does MuQSS 106 apply to 4.7?

graysky commented on 2016-10-04 22:12 (UTC)

105 is out but it's jacked up and does not cleanly apply to either 4.7 or 4.8. See CK's latest blog. I have unflagged; please flag again when the 105 is updated.

pedrogabriel commented on 2016-10-04 22:00 (UTC)

MuQSS 105 is out now.

graysky commented on 2016-10-03 18:36 (UTC) (edited on 2016-10-03 20:08 (UTC) by graysky)

@vishwin - Sorry, but not out of date until BFQ for 4.8 is released. I do not see MuQSS104 that patches against the 4.7 code-base (although CK is working on 105 as we speak)... plus, 4.8-ARCH is probably still in the works as it hasn't been build nor hit [testing] just yet.

artafinde commented on 2016-10-03 13:45 (UTC) (edited on 2016-10-03 13:48 (UTC) by artafinde)

I actually won't be enabling this unless it turns out to be stable enough and give something to the <= 8 CPUs. I've enabled it on my laptop and screwed up the BTRFS ctree. Seems like I'm reformatting today. I can't really blame MuQSS since there's a big WARNING on top, but it's a warning to users here. Could be something else but all started after I compiled and booted the MuQSS enabled kernel. The combination was: CPU Haswell, BTRFS single metadata SSD 1 device, BFQ enabled by default, localmodules enabled and MuQSS.

kogone commented on 2016-10-03 13:40 (UTC)

maybe we should create a rubric of tests to run to see the difference of muqss running on cpus with <= 8 cores?

artafinde commented on 2016-10-02 09:26 (UTC)

According to the blog post CK mentions only CPU not cores. I'm not entirely sure how the runqueues are defined (per CPU or per Core) but my understanding from the post is to target servers and make the BFS more comparable to mainline CFS.

zerophase commented on 2016-10-02 09:05 (UTC)

@artafinde Does MuQSS benefit more than 1 cpu die, or multiple cores? Say 8+?

artafinde commented on 2016-10-02 08:58 (UTC)

MuQSS is really targeting multi CPUs. As per the comment from CK "it will make a difference in 16+ CPUs and with high loads". I suppose we can still use it for testing purposes but unlikely we will produce any lockups to help surface any bugs with the desktop/laptop PCs. 103 is out btw.

graysky commented on 2016-10-01 20:05 (UTC)

@SuperIce - Thanks updated to 102 still in 4.7.6-1.

SuperIce97 commented on 2016-10-01 17:14 (UTC)

@graysky Version 102 is out now as well. According to ck: "I've uploaded version 102 which has a a lot of bugfixes and makes it boot properly again for me."

graysky commented on 2016-10-01 15:39 (UTC)

@SuperIce97 - Thanks for the heads-up about version 101 of muqss. Updated without bumping the pkgver since so few people are actually building and since the repo packages do not use this and I don't want to trigger a rebuild.

@graysky Is the extra patch in the pending directory getting applied? I guess that's supposed to fix the problem with Haswell.

@zerophase That's why I am staying on 4.7.1-1.

zerophase commented on 2016-09-18 23:56 (UTC)

Definitely, getting those crashes on Haswell E as well. The only thing I noticed in the logs was: ENERGY_PERF_BIAS: Set to 'normal', was 'performance' Could cpupower not be setting the cpu governor correctly? I also get that same message while running the stock kernel.

graysky commented on 2016-09-18 13:12 (UTC)

Makepkg does not build twice, it packages linux-ck then linux-ck-headers. Are you sure you are not mischaracterizing?

Rainmaker commented on 2016-09-18 12:51 (UTC)

Well, I'm using makepkg. I have a local directory on which I do a git pull every time there is an update. But, I am doing makepkg -C. Maybe I should try cleaning up the previous source manually before building. Currently, it DOES do two builds. It finishes building linux-ck, and then proceeds with unpacking linux-ck-headers and compiling that. It does warn about the PKGBUILD being a split package. When using yaourt, it does built twice, but I guess that is to be expected.

graysky commented on 2016-09-18 12:45 (UTC)

@Saren - Thanks for clarify. @Rainmaker - As suggested by others, don't use an aur helper. Just build with makepkg and you'll be fine (ie one build, multiple packages). Which one are you using by the way? The fact that is build twice is just wrong.

francoism90 commented on 2016-09-18 10:29 (UTC)

@Saran: How do you build this package? By an AUR wrapper (e.g. pacaur/yaourt)? If so, please just download/unpack the tar and run makepkg instead. I don't have any issues with multiple PKG builds.

Saren commented on 2016-09-18 07:33 (UTC) (edited on 2016-09-18 07:35 (UTC) by Saren)

@graysky I think you got it wrong. What @Rainmaker said is when we build linux-ck and linux-ck-headers packages, the kernel will be compiled twice, which is unnecessary and waste of time and power. When we build linux-ck-headers, linux-ck will be also compiled and provided. We can just accept installing both packages instead of linux-ck-headers only when pacman prompt us.

graysky commented on 2016-09-16 18:44 (UTC)

The headers package has nothing to do with it; edit /etc/mkinitcpio.d/linux-ck.preset and disable the fallback image.

Saren commented on 2016-09-16 13:42 (UTC)

@Rainmaker Install linux-ck-headers only.

Rainmaker commented on 2016-09-16 12:01 (UTC)

When you install linux-ck and linux-ck-headers, the kernel gets built twice. Is there a way to only build it once?

graysky commented on 2016-09-15 22:16 (UTC)

Disable ccache....

4.7.3-5 (linux-ck-headers-4.7.3-5 w/ linux-ck-piledriver-4.7.3-5) fail to boot for me- it just freezes partway through so I had to go back to 4.7.3-4. I have an AMD 9590 CPU.

I just want to point out that on my Skylake i7 6700 I had no panics for some time now and none with 4.7.x Could be only related to older hardware?

freeze happening with my Silvermont on 4.7.3-5 but no problems with my Ivybridge.

I compiled linux-ck 4.7.3-5 from AUR last night with native optimizations as set in nconfig. I still got kernel panic when I was playing games inside VM. I am using 4.7.1-1 for now and see if crashes still occur. EDIT: Crashes seem to no longer occur at least for now after 3 hours consecutive VM gaming.

zerophase commented on 2016-09-15 08:49 (UTC)

@agm28011997 Odd, I'm not getting any freezes with Haswell-e that I believe are caused by the kernel. I just freeze when I have CLion, and a Windows vm up. (I give that up to changing the CLion vm options for parsing a large CMake file) I'm pretty sure I didn't use up all of my ram or swap. Maybe, it is the kernel.

evilpot commented on 2016-09-15 08:06 (UTC)

incredible man, I don't know what is it the difference or what have the new code but in my i5 4690 haswell with intel hd graphics from git all is perfect with one hour of gaming now and any freeze, it is something weird because it is supposed to be here yet the freezes

rko commented on 2016-09-14 16:55 (UTC)

Random Comment: I was getting build failures with this, and it turns out that I needed to clear my ccache to get the kernel to build.

Even though 4.7.4 is due out today, I have built and published 4.7.3-5 and all related packages to [repo-ck]. CONFIG_CGROUP_SCHED is enabled per CK's suggestion.

usuariopolivalen commented on 2016-09-13 22:55 (UTC)

@gravysky thanks for your work, both of you, I wish I could help more than testing packages, when you put the new version in the repo I will test for report the issues, but I think that the freezes will continue due to the other comment in the page.. @saren what is BTW? I have seen the journalctl with the hour of freezes and nothing.. the freeze make my computer to do nothing and repeat 2 last seconds of music more or less and the mosue to not move and the keyboard the same

@agm28011997 Haswell-EP is the xeon version of Haswell cpus, linux-ck-haswell should be 100% compatible with it. I am downgrading once again from 4.7.2-2 to 4.7.2-1 because of your comment. :/ BTW, can confirm the lockup is kernel panic.

usuariopolivalen commented on 2016-09-13 19:30 (UTC)

@saren what is haswell-EP? my freezes starts at 4.7.2-2 with the bfs 472 patch, and other thing, post your problem in the ck blogspot of con kolivas @th3voic3 other like you it is me, if you want you can downgrade the version to 4.7.2-1 with patch bfs472 that is very stable for me @gravysky try to use cgroups enable if you want because for haswell desktop users there are too loockups for use this kernel, we'll wait until a solution

Saren commented on 2016-09-13 19:24 (UTC)

Haswell-EP user here, using linux-ck-haswell. Getting 3 random lockups already since 4.7.3. 2 of the lockups in the GPU Passthrough gaming, and the remaining one happened while watching youtube videos. I am downgrading to 4.7.2 as suggested by the comments and see if the issue will be going away.

th3voic3 commented on 2016-09-13 19:09 (UTC)

I'm using a Haswell cpu and a qemu vm with PCI passthrough. With the recent kernels my entire host would lockup as soon as I shutdown my VM. I just compiled the kernel with the new patch version and enabled CONFIG_CGROUP_SCHED. Just had a lockup again. Although I had lockups with or without CONFIG_CGROUP_SCHED. Haven't tested this patch yet with the option disabled. For now I'm using the mainline kernel. No issues there.

graysky commented on 2016-09-13 19:04 (UTC)

Just waiting to hear back from CK regarding his recommendation to or not to disable CONFIG_CGROUP_SCHED with ck4/bfs497. Will update once this happens.

puithove commented on 2016-09-13 18:50 (UTC)

I'm on a SandyBridge machine and using the SandyBridge package from the repo. I ended up having the same complete system freezes as well as KP on shutdown/reboot even after updating to 4.7.3-4 As of yesterday evening I rolled back to 4.7.2-1 and I seem to be stable again.

bacondropped commented on 2016-09-10 08:02 (UTC)

@QuartzDragon @pnehem @graysky I've recompiled the kernel without CONFIG_CGROUP_SCHED as well (GCC 6.2.1), and for me, it DOES seem to solve the persistent kernel oops. I'll try to test it more than just poking it with a stick, meanwhile, you can use this config patch (I know it's like sixty lines with context, shut up):

QuartzDragon commented on 2016-09-10 00:43 (UTC)

I've disabled CONFIG_CGROUP_SCHED and am rebuilding to see if the problem persists.

bacondropped commented on 2016-09-09 23:28 (UTC) (edited on 2016-09-10 00:22 (UTC) by bacondropped)

@pnehem It seems to happen around the same time to me as well, specifically during Xorg launch sequence (I'm running KDE on Manjaro, so to me, it happens during/after the Plymouth splash). Another person reported an oops with a stack trace that looks almost like mine (sans maybe two entries in the middle): Does your stack trace look like the one in that gist? I'm currently rebuilding the kernel with GCC 5.4.0 instead of 6.2.1 to eliminate the toolchain, I'll let you know how that goes. UPDATE: @graysky Do you think disabling cgroups might be worth considering? CK writes they're unstable and are known to cause problems/panics: UPDATE: rebuilding with GCC 5.4.0 does NOT fix the problem (reminder, here's the problem I'm trying to fix, bug report not mine, but very similar stack trace:

pnehem commented on 2016-09-09 20:34 (UTC) (edited on 2016-09-09 23:25 (UTC) by pnehem)

Hello, I'm getting a kernel panic as well, but I was trying to figure out if it where it was happening at because I can get to my login screen, just fine. But when I go to log in then it kernel panics and locks up the computer. I was just getting ready to start reading logs. --update: I updated my system but still getting a seg fault/kernel panic. I get to the login/sddm screen just fine, But the I try to go farther the screen goes black and I can see the cursor and nothing responds locks up the whole system sort of -I can do ctl-alt-F2 and login from the "command line" but I can't make heads or tails of the logs.

usuariopolivalen commented on 2016-09-09 17:51 (UTC)

@gravisky con kollivas has commented that you use the patch of cgroups but he told too that it is unstable yet, I don't think the problem is this but can someone that have my problem try to recompile the kernel without this patch for seeing if the problem is fixed? other thing the people that have my problem has c states in bios enabled? it is an idea..

usuariopolivalen commented on 2016-09-09 14:19 (UTC) (edited on 2016-09-09 14:19 (UTC) by usuariopolivalen)

@gravysky what changes have you put in the kernel ck betwin the 4.7.2-1 and 4.7.2-2 with bfs 480? I revert to older kernel and I have no problems with freezes with cpufreq and pstate, but I am the only person that appear to have this problem, cgroups patch is enabled in the repo?

usuariopolivalen commented on 2016-09-09 14:11 (UTC)

@QuartzDragon kernel opps? What do you mean?

usuariopolivalen commented on 2016-09-09 12:57 (UTC)

I don't know why but I changed the p_state to cpufreq and the freezes continues here.., I used the pstate powersave and the powersave cpufreq and nothint both of them and I think the rest too give me random freezes, for ram? for memory? for cache? I don't know..

QuartzDragon commented on 2016-09-09 10:38 (UTC)

I consistently get kernel oops with BFS 490 ck3 whenever I start my X server. I know it's not BFQ, because it also happens with CFQ. I'll post on his blog, anyways.

@zerophase I test the latest kernel and for the moment I only had one freeze since I update.. I am not sure if the problem is the memory, but I don't think so with 8 GB and swap of 6GB the only thing is that a I have the tmp files mount in ram but.. not sure.. before, the pc not freezes..

zerophase commented on 2016-09-08 00:04 (UTC)

@agm28011997 I just run out of memory if I'm doing things with Unreal. It's because I don't have enough swap space. (going to fix that once I get an NVME ssd, and just use my old ssd for swap) I set my cpu to performance mode, so I don't encounter issues with frequencies changing.

graysky commented on 2016-08-17 19:10 (UTC)

If that's true (the lack of support for SMT_NICE) you will need to patch the source prior to building or email CK to ask him to include it in the ck1 patchset as I think your hardware is in the minority of users. I don't want to just apply a patch that without CK's blessing particularly when the code doesn't help 99% of the users :)

enihcam commented on 2016-08-17 01:25 (UTC)

@graysky thanks for pointing it out. Are you suggesting the panic can only be workarounded by setting CONFIG_SMT_NICE=y given that AMD processors (not zen) do not support SMT actually?

graysky commented on 2016-08-16 23:48 (UTC)

Well, they are certainly in the sources: % grep CONFIG_SMT config.x86_64 CONFIG_SMT_NICE=y % grep CONFIG_SMT config CONFIG_SMT_NICE=y And in the [repo-ck] packages but I can't control what you do to the PKGBUILD on your own machine :p % uname -r 4.7.1-1-ck % zgrep CONFIG_SMT /proc/config.gz CONFIG_SMT_NICE=y

enihcam commented on 2016-08-16 23:48 (UTC)

By the way, why would I need to set SMT on an AMD processor?

enihcam commented on 2016-08-16 23:45 (UTC)

@graysky, I didn't find CONFIG_SMT_NICE in /proc/config.gz. Are there any dependencies I need to turn on first?

graysky commented on 2016-08-16 23:31 (UTC)

@enihcam - Regarding configs without CONFIG_SMT_NICE set? Linux-ck and the Arch kernel both have this set. I don't want to add a conditional in the PKGBUILD that inspects $srcdir/linux-$pkgver/.config and patches if so for example.

Getting kernel panic on Haswell-E as well, I thought it was btrfs's problem, done btrfs check and fixed nothing, then I found the kernel panic message is about bfq and got here.

glavin commented on 2016-07-31 06:59 (UTC)

Getting kernel panic on sandybridge as well, freeze on moderate I/O and sometimes get panic messages on shutdown.

zosodk69 commented on 2016-07-30 23:01 (UTC)

The panics are almost certainly BFQv8 related. Reverting to BFQv7r11 makes them go away. I was able to get good panic output by logging to the serial port. I'm not a linux-ck user, rather a standalone BFQ user. I've started a thread on paolo's newsgroup to work through this issue:!topic/bfq-iosched/80V4U6ak57w Because of these stability issues, I'd recommend linux-ck revert to BFQv7r11.

zerophase commented on 2016-07-30 22:49 (UTC) (edited on 2016-07-30 22:59 (UTC) by zerophase)

@graysky I'm definitely getting kernel panics after the system has been up for a few hours. the numlock key doesn't even respond, once the system locks up. Running the standard kernel for now to see if it's still an issue.

graysky commented on 2016-07-29 19:06 (UTC)

@rucci - That is the default for the PKGBUILD except for _BFQ_enable_=y (and NUMA code has been commented for ages now). The only diff you have is enabling BFQ by default but that shouldn't trigger a bug as you activated it through other means before.

mssdvd commented on 2016-07-29 16:28 (UTC) (edited on 2016-07-29 16:29 (UTC) by mssdvd)

I recompiled again with "_1k_HZ_ticks=y", "_BFQ_enable_=y", "_NUMAdisable=y", gcc patch and now it works without kernel panic...

zerophase commented on 2016-07-29 15:17 (UTC)

@graysky I haven't had any panics yet. Running the kernel compiled for Haswell, with '_1k_hz_ticks' and bfq enabled.

Cake commented on 2016-07-29 14:12 (UTC)

@graysky Yes, I only installed one disk (/dev/sda) and and enabled BFQ on it. Several hours ago, I checked it with cake-pc# cat /sys/block/sda/queue/scheduler noop deadline cfq [bfq] I am sorry that I did not try recompiling `linux-ck=4.6.5` with `_1k_HZ_ticks=`. I just changed `grub.cfg` and rebooted with the stock kernel ... Everything seems to be working fine ... I am wondering what is going on when the system freezes. So if you require any other information, please let me know.

graysky commented on 2016-07-29 13:19 (UTC)

So two reports of the new bfq causing panics? Can you both verify that you have a drive set to use bfq? I don't see how tick rate plays into the equation.

mssdvd commented on 2016-07-29 09:20 (UTC)

It works if I disable "_1k_HZ_ticks" option

mradermaxlol commented on 2016-07-29 05:35 (UTC)

@graysky if you wanna know, everything's just fine after the latest update - stuff is buildable, at least for me. I can't understand why -ck patch was ruining the build, though; maybe I'm just dumb.

graysky commented on 2016-07-28 18:58 (UTC)

3.6.5-2 has been updated the corrected name of the 4th patch; the checksums remain the same since upstream did not change the content, only the name.

mradermaxlol commented on 2016-07-28 15:27 (UTC) (edited on 2016-07-28 15:48 (UTC) by mradermaxlol)

I'm getting patching errors (likely) during prepare() execution which result in makepkg build failure. It's happening at -ck patchset applying, and I have completely no idea what's causing it - maybe these patches are outdated, maybe it's just 4.6.5-incompatible (although I don't think so as errors happen in bfq.c/bfq.h files, for example). Right now my best guess is that the fourth BFQ patch is causing that, because that makes sense - it might be okay a while ago, but now its name in PKGBUILD is useless as it's wrong; I've changed it as @herraiz suggested and, well, everything's okay except patching X) Does anybody else experience this issue as well? EDIT: After a little research I've found out (I hope so) that the thing responsible for that problem is... Yup, the -ck patchset itself. Ta-daa!

herraiz commented on 2016-07-28 14:23 (UTC) (edited on 2016-07-28 14:23 (UTC) by herraiz)

@nTia89: the third patch has changed, you have probably an old copy of the third patch in your sources dir.

nTia89 commented on 2016-07-28 13:16 (UTC)

other than corrected forth name's patch, in order to have a working pkgbuild, we need to correct the checksum for the third patch

graysky commented on 2016-07-28 09:25 (UTC)

I will update the source array for the renamed patch but this is technically not out of date since the content of that patch did not change. See my post a few down (we knew this change was coming).

@grasky, yes: pacaur. Should I run makepkg manually? I want to note that I have been using pacaur previously to install and update linux-ck without any problems. EDIT: Running it manually right now using "makepkg -fsic". EDIT 2: Well that worked. That's the first time an AUR helper bit me, especially pacaur which is supposed to be very reliable ( Sorry about this.

He is testing prev8 of BFQ now but would not predict a release date. Enjoy the 4.6 series.

artafinde commented on 2016-06-20 19:52 (UTC)

That's fine and I agree - just mentioned my findings (though if I knew about the g-groups I'd already know that :D ). Probably the wait will be worth it with the new BFQ v8 [!topic/bfq-iosched/ReUuq4jtZ84]

graysky commented on 2016-06-20 19:32 (UTC)

Paolo has a testing version of BFQ for 4.6 but it and the 4.5 series have problems with hierarchical support[1]. We have 4,000+ [repo-ck] users so I would rather wait fo the ink to dry on the BFQ 4.6-final version before including old or testing patches. 1.!topic/bfq-iosched/7gJMK1DttYQ

artafinde commented on 2016-06-20 07:55 (UTC)

Interestingly the patches of BFQ 4.5 apply successfully on 4.6.2. Although I haven't test those as I don't use BFQ.

graysky commented on 2016-05-26 19:06 (UTC)

@Tjuh - Yes, that is likely your problem. I highly recommend using modprobed-db if you want to make localmodconfig for this purpose. Just know that it's only as good as your database and if you want to have a new module that you haven't used before, you will have to boot into a kernel that actually has this module available for modprobed-db to learn that you have an interest. Hope that makes sense. See the wiki for more.

Distorted commented on 2016-05-26 12:46 (UTC)

@Tjuh Disable localmodcfg, it causes the kernel to only compile the modules you are currently using.

Tjuh commented on 2016-05-26 11:07 (UTC)

Ye I also find it weird, cause I checked the config.x86_64 and saw that it is enabled as a module. Hmm maybe I should disable the localmodprobe option in the PKGBUILD. And yes rebooted and recompiled many times.

graysky commented on 2016-05-25 20:56 (UTC)

@Tjuh - Dunno why, it's in the config and it loads on my system running 4.5.5-ck-1 % zgrep -i zram /proc/config.gz CONFIG_ZRAM=m CONFIG_ZRAM_LZ4_COMPRESS=y Have you perhaps not rebooted since updating to 4.5.5?

Tjuh commented on 2016-05-25 20:21 (UTC)

francoism90 commented on 2016-04-19 18:01 (UTC)

Hi graysky, Thanks for providing Linux-ck, really like the BFQ scheduler and also like the easy tweaking/customizing. :) Sorry if this is already ask before, but if testing is needed for the v4.5.x series, please let me know. I'm running on Skylake platform, maybe this platform needs more testing? :P Thanks again!

Greetings graysky, Some users on the BFQ mailing list have tested the v7r11 4.4.0 patches on 4.5.0 kernel and have found they work without any issues. I've also tested for myself with a modified PKGBUILD and found they work stably and without any issues or quirks compared to CFQ, no matter my system load or uptime. I guess your plans are to wait for the official patches?

graysky commented on 2016-04-18 20:48 (UTC)

@kyak - Thanks, try refreshing and downloading now. As to the renaming of the package, that would require a rewrite of my build script which isn't in the cards for the short term.

@graysky, thanks! But virtualbox-ck-host-modules-ivybridge and virtualbox-host-modules-arch are conflicting now. How should we handle this? By the way, does it make sense to change the naming convention in accordance to upstream - i.e. virtualbox-host-modules-ck-ivybridge ?

Dammit. You will have to rename the file to simply linux-ck-4.4.6-1.src.tar after you download it as it wasn't run through gzip my mistake. Also, you will need to update the checksums as config will fail as-is.

Running 4.3.6-1-ck (piledriver) and current -Syu as of 3/3/16. I notice during boot the message still shows "starting version 228" instead of 229. Doesn't appear to affect anything, but was thinking the version refers to systemd?

@fawyayer - You need to compare 4.3.6-1-ck to 4.3.6-1-ARCH (which you need to build yourself) to provide a comparison. Comparing to 4.4.1-1-ARCH is the wrong experiment.

farwayer commented on 2016-02-21 21:43 (UTC) (edited on 2016-02-21 21:43 (UTC) by farwayer)

Look like there is some problem with working intel i965 driver with 4.3.6-1-ck kernel. Xorg cursor does not render. However there are no errors in xorg log. Changing acceleration method to old uxa fixs the problem. All ok with arch vanila kernel (4.4.1).

graysky commented on 2015-12-14 12:02 (UTC)

@XenGi - I try to be as true to the Arch config as I can be for linux-ck. You are of course free to customize/build your own. My suggestion is for you to open a flyspray again the official Arch linux package asking for this. Might want to include your reasoning why it would be important.

XenGi commented on 2015-12-14 10:51 (UTC)

hi, Could you set CONFIG_CHECKPOINT_RESTORE=y for all ck kernels? I'm using the broadwell build from repo-ck. This would enable fancy process names for LXC. The setting is not set atm. ``` $ zgrep 'CONFIG_CHECKPOINT_RESTORE' /proc/config.gz # CONFIG_CHECKPOINT_RESTORE is not set ``` Here's a thread explaining the issue:

graysky commented on 2015-12-14 07:29 (UTC)

Distorted commented on 2015-11-13 18:15 (UTC)

@kyak I dont use the repo-ck, so i'm just guessing here, if linux-ck-ivybridge is not version 4.3 you're absolutely right, but until then you could use an older commit of bbswitch-ck.

FadeMind commented on 2015-11-13 18:13 (UTC)

kyak linux-ck is main package for GENERIC (ALL) CPU's and OFC can be adjust BEFORE compile. Customized by CPU names are designed for powerfull CPU's AMD and Intel See: are available on repo site. IF You have installed linux-ck-ivybridge You have two options: 1. Download sources of linux-ck and custom config file for enable valid CPU family for GCC and compile it. 2. Purge whole -ck packages (linux-ck-ivybridge, bbswitch-ck, and nvidia-ck-ivybridge) 3. Purge and install again bbswitch-ck package (major linux version bumped from 4.1 to 4.3 and package NEED to be recompilled against 4.3) 4. Install new version of nvidia-ck version ready for 4.3 OR JUST WAIT for upload proper packages in to repo-ck repository. SUBFORUM of AUR packages IS designed for report ISSUES with PKGBUILD/package build issues. FOR help with Your misunderstanding of the issues please write directly on BBS Arch Forums: Reference And one more: stop spamming and confuse users of other packages (bbswitch-ck).

kyak commented on 2015-11-13 18:11 (UTC) (edited on 2015-11-13 18:12 (UTC) by kyak)

@Distorted i think i get it now. I should wait for the latest version of linux-ck-ivybridge to hit the repo-ck. After that i'd have something that provides linux-ck=4.3 and be able to install bbswitch-ck. I didn't realize i was still using linux-ck-ivybridge 4.1.3

Distorted commented on 2015-11-13 18:01 (UTC)

@kyak also, did you rebuild the bbswitch-ck package? i updated it for the new version.

Distorted commented on 2015-11-13 18:00 (UTC)

@kyak You could probably edit the bbswitch-ck PKGBUILD file and change depends=linux-ck to depends=linux-ck-ivybridge Unless they changed the actual name of the kernel, not just the package. If this is not the case, the linux-ck-ivybridge pkgbuild should say provide='linux-ck=4.3' to solve these kinds of problems.

kyak commented on 2015-11-13 17:54 (UTC)

Well, wait a second.. bbswitch-ck requires linux-ck, which conflicts with linux-ck-ivybridge that i have installed. What to do? It used to work before

kyak commented on 2015-11-13 17:51 (UTC)

ok, finally.. had to uninstall bbswitch-ck. It doesn't work woth 4.3 kernel. Thanks for the hint, Distorted.

kyak commented on 2015-11-13 17:47 (UTC)

but.. i didn't build anything from aur. I'm using repo-ck

graysky commented on 2015-11-13 17:25 (UTC)

Just remove all repo-ck packages before you try installing one you built yourself from the AUR: pacman -Rs ck-ivybridge

At maximum i was able to download around 1000 Kb, and the download starts over and over again from the beginning of the file. It's been like that for a couple of days now (can't update to v4.1.9-1).

I'm running with NUMA disabled and with ck patch for reverting unplugged [1]. I'm fairly stable with BFQ enabled and on BTRFS. I'll post if I got issues. Test: Normal work day, scrubs on BTRFS, kernel compilation. [1]

dkaylor commented on 2015-08-05 10:53 (UTC)

I may have spoken too soon. System had been up and running for about 30 hours with no trouble. Then did a pacman -Syu (with linux-4.1.4 and systemd-224) and got a panic right in the middle of the kernel image generation. Reboot, cold boot, nothing helped. Panic then hang. And generic kernel image generation didn't finish, so system was toast. Will try a repair with ISO before, but wiki instructions seem dodgy. Probably should have saved pacman work for the generic kernel, lesson learned.

marceliq commented on 2015-08-05 08:50 (UTC)

I have NUMA disabled and today kernel panic appears during boot process. After hard reset it booted without problems.

artafinde commented on 2015-08-05 08:28 (UTC)

I've recompiled with disabled NUMA. After half a dozen reboots no panic so far.

pedrogabriel commented on 2015-08-05 04:24 (UTC)

@graysky - The kernel is working fine in my system with NUMA disabled.

dkaylor commented on 2015-08-04 23:52 (UTC)

Additional to my previous post: SMT is turned off in my config, since processor is 4 cores == 4 threads. Doubt it's relevant, but just in case.

graysky commented on 2015-08-04 23:03 (UTC)

@dk - That's good to hear. I guess we should solicit others to try disabling NUMA and checking for stability. Any takers?

dkaylor commented on 2015-08-04 22:13 (UTC)

Regarding NUMA - I've been running a custom linux-ck 4.1.4-1 with NUMA disabled and haven't had any hangs. Everyday workloads, several suspend/resume cycles. On the same hardware, I had to turn NUMA off on 4.0.x to get it to run. Machine is Core2 Quad.

I might have found something regarding the Kernel Panic. I usually compile (with the NUMA patch enabled) using native optimizations detected by gcc and I disable kernel debugging. Today I updated and forgot to disable kernel debugging and for the first time since this issue arose I got the kernel panic. I then recompiled with kernel debugging disabled and the kernel panic was gone. Not sure if this is going to be of any use but I'll leave it here just in case.

OK. Given all the reports of problems with ck1 and 4.0.x, I have decided to push version 3.19.6 to the AUR (and all associated packages now depend on 3.19.x). If you experienced a kernel panic using linux-ck v4.0.x, please see this post and consider if you can help Con debug: For those interested in the 4.0.x version of PKGBUILDs, I have made them available on repo-ck at this address: PLEASE DO NOT FLAG OUT-OF-DATE UNTIL CK FIXES THE PANICS - I WILL NOT PUSH THE AUR OR REPO UNTIL IT IS STABLE!

graysky commented on 2015-04-17 19:14 (UTC)

@fademind - dunno what to tell you; running fine on my systems (haswell and ivy with onboard video). @all - heard back from Paolo about BFQ for 4.0. Arianna and he are testing a new patch that is specifically for 4.0 so I don't plan to bump linux-ck until that happens. You can continue using the version I have linked below if you wish until then.

FadeMind commented on 2015-04-17 19:11 (UTC)

@graysky After disabing zramswap. Boot, sddm splash, loading desktop, no wallpaper - black background, freeze mouse and keyboard, capslock key led flash in pulse. I can't do anything except hard poweroff. Keyboard and mouse not respond. Kernel panic is before SDDM startup... IMO it is Intel DRM regression... weird.

graysky commented on 2015-04-17 18:53 (UTC)

@fademind - I dunno about your setup but I see somr zram lines in your dmesg. Disable zram and try again? Also, if you boot to the shell and not to sddm, does it panic? If not, can you start your xsession without sddm by running `xinit` and see if it happens. Trying to isolate which part is causing the hang.

FadeMind commented on 2015-04-17 09:59 (UTC)

@graysky Here it is: Linux 3.19.4-ck boot fine. Here is dmesg from it: Lsmod: inxi -Fxz I can't boot fine on 4.0-ck anyway Regards

graysky commented on 2015-04-17 09:16 (UTC)

@fademind - what video are you using and please report your findings on CK's blog

FadeMind commented on 2015-04-17 05:25 (UTC)

@graysky I'm used Your SRC. After compilling, reboot and boot from linux-ck I have freeze under X11. I saw mouse and SDDM login splash begin animation but hangs. Only hard poweroff (push 5 sec. power button) was usefull for poweroff. After power on and boot from stock kernel I had Recovery Jornal again. It is something wrong with CK for 4.0. I patched -mainline kernel with GCC patch and working fine - without any issues. For SSD I used NOOP. For HDD I used CFQ (in stock) or BFQ (in -ck, -mainline) and I don't had Issues. Dynamic changing scheduler udev rules script. Note: I booted from 3.19.4-ck kernel and PASS fine.

graysky commented on 2015-04-16 21:11 (UTC)

I generated a PKGBUILD+related files for linux-ck-4.0 using ck1-4.0 and using the 3.19.x series of BFQ since there is one report on the BFQ forum that this version works fine in the 4.0 code[1]. You may download it and build/test from this file: I also emailed Paolo to see if this is the official word from his group. I don't want to put linux-ck-4.0 live in the AUR/repo until we hear back from him. Please test this out if you wish and report back good or bad. 1.!topic/bfq-iosched/lUAAQQG6P4A

graysky commented on 2015-04-16 20:57 (UTC)

@FadeMind - So the only difference is ck1 patchset? Are you using BFQ at all?

FadeMind commented on 2015-04-16 14:53 (UTC)

I built own kernel 4.0 with lastest ck patch and I had random kernel panic during boot with hangs. After reboot I had recovery journal of disk. Sometimes is fine, sometimes just hangs and blow up. Safe is waiting for 4.0.1 release update 4.0 kernel series. ON Stock 4.0 sersies ARCH kernel this never happened.

PerfectGentleman commented on 2015-04-16 13:33 (UTC)

yep, BFQ for 3.19 works fine on 4.0

Apparently BFQ for 3.19 works just fine on 4.0 according to their mailing list.

Scimmia commented on 2015-04-09 23:53 (UTC)

There are other ways, too. First off, you don't have to trust the keys. Second, you can automate downloading them in gpg.conf --skippgpcheck is a joke. If you're too lazy to figure out how to use gpg, you shouldn't be building your kernel, to say the least.

Twilight_Genesis commented on 2015-04-09 23:47 (UTC)

2 Ways To fix PGP key errors: (Recommended): Import the PGP keys in the validpgpkeys array in the PKGBUILD and trust them. gpg --recv-keys ABAF11C65A2970B130ABE3C479BE3E4300411886 647F28654894E3BD457199BE38DBBDC86092693E For each key run gpg --edit-key <KEY>, where <KEY> is the PGP key then type trust and hit enter, then 5 and hit enter to trust it ultimately, and finally type quit to quit (Ignore PGP signatures)(Not recommended) Have makepkg skip PGP signature checking just pass the --skippgpcheck argument to makepkg makepkg --skippgpcheck -r -s

Twilight_Genesis commented on 2015-04-09 23:19 (UTC)

@radialhat: You have to either import the PGP keys in the validpgpkeys array in the PKGBUILD and trust them or if you don't care about the PGP signatures then you can pass the --skippgpcheck argument to makepkg and have it ignore the PGP signatures.

Please take makepkg/gnupg discussions to the forums; I doubt others in the AUR like receiving notifications on these topics which have nothing to do with the package. Thank you.

radialhat commented on 2015-04-05 11:50 (UTC)

What kind of fix do you refer to? I've done nothing to my gnupg setup... It works with other packages

Scimmia commented on 2015-04-05 03:41 (UTC)

@radialhat, if you're having problems, don't work around it. Fix your GnuPG setup. Works fine here.

radialhat commented on 2015-04-05 01:35 (UTC)

Seriously, what is wrong with the PGP keys? Do we have to workaround everytime now?

@sp1d3rmxn Uh.... What?

sp1d3rmxn commented on 2015-03-30 11:45 (UTC)

Funny you all are having problems with the pgp key. I brought this up some time ago and was given a bunch of BS about why it "should" work as if I already didn't know it "should". Anyways... I've been seeing this wonderful additional problem with the "enable patch" that for some reason is also being disregarded so here's how to fix it. When you compile the package it's nice to see someone has left or did something stupid (yet again) where the file "enable_additional_cpu_optimizations_for_gcc_v4.9+_kernel_v3.15+.patch.gz" is actually not ending in ".gz". Awesome huh? So what you have to do is this. Rename the file removing the ".gz" part and copy it to the "src" directory where you're building (you can't do this through the yaourt build because you need to intervene beyond editing the PKGBUILD). Recap: - run makepkg -rs (if this is how you do it) - ignore errors since this is becoming commonplace with this package anyway - edit PKGBUILD and remove .sig and .sign PGP crap since no one wants to implement this right anyway - mv enable_additional_cpu_optimizations_for_gcc_v4.9+_kernel_v3.15+.patch.gz enable_additional_cpu_optimizations_for_gcc_v4.9+_kernel_v3.15+.patch - update sha256sums => (4th line down) "e5b0f1882861cb1d0070e49c41a3e7390cf379f183be0bddb54144ecc68fb8f9" - cp enable_additional_cpu_optimizations_for_gcc_v4.9+_kernel_v3.15+.patch to ./src (you should be in the directory you're compiling) - Sit back and wait for fresh kernel and enjoy

Tjuh commented on 2015-03-28 14:01 (UTC)

Unfortunately none of the suggestions below worked, I had to run makepkg with the --skippgpcheck flag to get it to compile.

kyak commented on 2015-02-15 06:57 (UTC)

Hi graysky, When using your repo, download if often aborted with "transfer closed with XXX bytes remaining to read" - due to slow speed. Previsously it was possible to just "pacman -Syu" again and the download would resume where it had been stopped. But now the download is always started from the beginning. I'm struggling now to download 10 Mb of linux-ck-ivybridge-3.18.7-2 - even for such small size, i had to "pacman -Syu" several times, untill it succeded (the download is always started from the beginning). Anyway. Did you think about "Donate" button that would probably help you improve the infrastructure a little bit?

Black screen on sandy bridge even with nomodeset on i915. Single mode works. Any ideas?

graysky commented on 2014-12-23 15:59 (UTC)

As with every report of instability: does the corresponding ARCH kernel of the same version cause issues? In this case you will need to install 3.18.1-1-ARCH from [testing] to properly answer this question.

neTpK commented on 2014-12-23 14:20 (UTC)

Running linux-ck-haswell with the update to 3.18.1 locks up the cpu bad. First thought it was the update to overlayfs in PSD that was causing this, but it seems its a kernel issue. Changed to stock linux solves the issue.

Update3: 3.18.1 has just been released and I have updated the source tarball for those of you wishing to compile it up on your own. A reminder that all of the other *-ck packages I maintain have now been updated and are also available on repo-ck BOTH as source tarballs and (for generic x86_64 only) as compiled packages - note that the compiled package of 3.18.1-ck-1 will be updated shortly. *Source tarballs: *Pre-build 3.18-ck packages (x86_64 only):

graysky commented on 2014-12-15 19:12 (UTC)

Update2: I now have all packages updated to build against 3.18-ck-1 including broadcom-wl-ck. Find the source package for it in the same place as I indicated below. Note - I do not have a broadcom wireless chipset so I cannot test the module. I can modprobe it and it does insert. Can someone with this hardware try it and report back?

graysky commented on 2014-12-14 17:51 (UTC)

Update: All packages except for broadcom-wl-ck have been updated to work with 3.18.0-1-ck. Again, I will wait to diff the linux-ck PKGBUILD and associated files against the official ARCH version once it publishes, but those wishing to upgrade to 3.18.0-1-ck now can either build your own from the src tarballs or use pre-build the packages you can download directly with `pacman -U` if you wish. Otherwise, just keep waiting for the official release. *Source tarballs: *Pre-build 3.18-ck packages (x86_64 only):

graysky commented on 2014-12-14 03:05 (UTC)

While we wait the ARCH devs to create a proper PKGBUILD for 3.18.0, I have pieced together one for those wishing to test out the package in the following directory of repo-ck: Note that I have simply done a `make oldconfig` against 3.17.6-1's config files and selected the modules for new features unless that wasn't an option in which case I went with the upstream defaults for new features. Also know that I am noting planning to do an early update to the accompanying packages (broadcom, nvidia*, and vbox*) so if you have a system that depends on them, you will have to modify them yourself until 3.18.x-1-ARCH goes live. Enjoy!

graysky commented on 2014-12-11 18:19 (UTC)

Oh... that's not up to me. I believe a TU would need to adopt the package and bring it in toe [community]. No way would he or she build all the CPU versions that I supply in [repo-ck] though...

I think what he is saying is that you could have your linux-ck package in community maybe, like linux-grsec.

Agree, thanks.

Not a linux-ck issue. Please take discussion to the bbs so as not to clutter up the AUR comments.

artafinde commented on 2014-10-17 15:37 (UTC)

I believe it's an issue with ccache and btrfs on SSD. When I disable the ccache it works. The problem is I'm getting a kernel panic so compilation stops half-way. After hard-reset I clean out the src and pkg directory and restart the compilation. Then I am assuming the objects are half created and I hit again a compilation error (not kernel-panic). It's an obscure case so comments in AUR might not be the proper place to solve this.

clfarron4 commented on 2014-10-17 08:32 (UTC)

@artafinde: What is the exact error? Might help us work out what the problem actually is.

artafinde commented on 2014-10-17 06:30 (UTC)

I get a compilation error while using 8 threads and ccache. Anyone else can verify?

graysky commented on 2014-10-16 19:39 (UTC)

prakharsingh95 commented on 2014-10-10 18:00 (UTC)

@Tjuh. I faced a similar issue. Just boot into arch default, plug in all your peripherals and get them working, and then build linux-ck with localmodconfig=y. Everything will work out of the box them. @graysky. Is it possible for you to enable SCSI, USB, etc by default (ie add an option to PKGBUILD like minimal_support=y)?

graysky commented on 2014-10-10 16:25 (UTC)

Odds are that using that option, you did not compile in USB support. I suggest using modprobe-db if you haven't already done so. Boot into a kernel with all modules, load those you will need, ie insert the external USB drive, populate the db and try rebuilding.

Tjuh commented on 2014-10-10 13:34 (UTC)

Yes, localmodcfg=y in the PKGBUILD. The latest linux-ck-haswell kernel works just fine from the repo-ck. The previous kernel v3.16.4-1 works just fine with the same PKGBUILD settings.

graysky commented on 2014-10-10 13:24 (UTC)

Did you modify the PKGBUILD or build with localmodconfig or the like? What happens if you use one of the kernel packages from repo-ck?

Tjuh commented on 2014-10-10 10:20 (UTC)

After compiling the latest linux-ck my external usb hdd is not being recognized anymore. I had no problem with the previous kernel.

@AnAkkk What you're most likely witnessing isn't a bug. By design, BFQ sacrifices throughput for interactivity.

@nemesys and @clfarron4 I had to manually enable USB SCSI option. I was just surprised that localmodcfg skipped this.

nemesys commented on 2014-10-07 18:46 (UTC)

@prakharsingh95: Please read the kernel documentation for what different build options do before attempting to install a custom kernel. The fact that you are compiling the main working software component on your system should be warning enough to RTFM.

clfarron4 commented on 2014-10-07 18:39 (UTC)

@prakharsingh95: A warning for what? I know there is a clear warning for what localmodcfg does and how it will only compile probed modules in the PKGBUILD.

According to the kernel config, 1000 Hz is best for desktop systems anyway, so it might be better to just leave it like that.

graysky commented on 2014-08-18 12:18 (UTC)

I haven't checked running at 300 Hz. If you would like to try and report back that would be great. AFAIK ck recommends 1000 Hz.

AnAkkk commented on 2014-08-18 10:48 (UTC)

Haven't the suspend issues been solved since a long time now? 1000 Hz should no longer be required? Aren't there some downsides from using 1000Hz instead of 300Hz?

graysky commented on 2014-08-16 18:14 (UTC)

No idea about the answer to your SMT question. I just use modprobed-db on my own system and disable a few things that I don't use, NUMA, virtualization, and hibernation.

dkaylor commented on 2014-08-16 18:12 (UTC)

Thanks graysky. Which leads me to a question - SMT nice aside, if I have a non-SMT processor (4 cores = 4 threads, nice and simple) does disabling SMT in the kernel config accomplish anything, other than saving a little overhead? What's your opinion on heavily customized kernel configs in general?

graysky commented on 2014-08-16 17:55 (UTC)

No, I thought about this... it's currently on (ie hardcoded in the .config files). You will need to manually disable it. I could add this to the PKGBUILD as an option, but have no idea how many users would even use it.

dkaylor commented on 2014-08-16 17:53 (UTC)

so as bfs 450 now includes the smt nice work, will I be able to turn it off in the kernel config? I have a non-hyperthreaded core2 quad, so I always turn off SMT scheduling, although I'm not sure it matters much. ck mentions a bfs450-nosmt-buildfix.patch to make it impossible to enable SMT nice on a non-SMT kernel, but not sure it's included in the PKGBUILD. I'm fine with just disabling it in the config.

ilkyest commented on 2014-08-04 01:40 (UTC)

Thanks so much by the kernel Graysky. I'm a folding at home user (, that try improves F@H performance, every time trying new kernels. Sometime ago, about 3.10.1 your kernel was not good to folding. At this time, only in one test, it were the worst, I'm trying NUMA=ON and NUMA=OFF differences, and, withing your changes, and "kernel's studying" in a while, only ck will fold on my pc. But... when you will bump the pkgver? Any date?

graysky commented on 2014-08-01 13:42 (UTC)

Note that CK just posted an experimental patch that in his words, "Works for me flawlessly on all my stuff, but it's still pretty new." You can read about it at the link below. I don't want to enable it by default in the repo but do want to allow users a chance to try it out in the PKGBUILD. See the first set of comments to enable it. As always, post your experiences both good and bad to CK's blog so he can make ck1 and BFS more and more powerful and robust for everyone to enjoy. Note-I am not going to bump the pkgver to 2 since I just rebuild the repo overnight and since this is really no chance unless you enable it.

Yeah, I saw them and in the past CK has considered the patch experimental and as noted in his blog post, "this patch by itself does nothing unless other code uses the locks." I don't want to add an experimental patch to the package must less to repo packages people depend on for stable systems.

clfarron4 commented on 2014-07-30 19:10 (UTC)

I assume the flagger saw a new post on the CK blog and flagged out-of-date without reading. That said, the new post on the CK blog refers to these patches: Just after I build 3.15.7-1-ck-pax as well (with no time left today or tomorrow to muse over these new patches).

dkaylor commented on 2014-07-07 03:15 (UTC)

I'm not the one flagging it out of date, but it's probably because ck released BFS 449. graysky stated earlier that he was busy with family stuff this weekend, so he just hasn't had a chance to do 3.15.3-2 yet.

fx101 commented on 2014-07-06 20:48 (UTC)

@clfarron4: Sorry this could actually be something on my end. Tried downloading the file another few times and was still getting the mismatched hash. Looked at it a bit further and it turns out that the file was in plain text (not gz) - somewhere along the line it was being uncompressed automatically. Have a feeling it may be something to do with my ISP as I teathered up my mobile issues the same curl -O ... command, and got the correct response.

Or you uncomment the BUILDDIR stanza in /etc/makepkg.conf and set it to a place with more space.

mariojuniorjp commented on 2014-06-14 00:00 (UTC)

@Schemeidenbacher 13.9 MB of 908.7 MB (98% used) That was it. Now I have to figure out how to increase the size of / tmp folder, because what is taking up all the space is precisely the kernel compilation. xD

Schmeidenbacher commented on 2014-06-13 23:54 (UTC)

It's building in /tmp/makepkg then (the default), so yeah, depends on what's mounted there.

mariojuniorjp commented on 2014-06-13 23:52 (UTC)

@graysky @Scimmia I'm building using Yaourt. :P I did not know it would cause an error in compiling the kernel that way. I've only set up the PKGBUILD, other things too, and then sent compile the kernel. @Schemeidenbacher #-- Specify a directory for package building. #BUILDDIR=/tmp/makepkg Is this?

Schmeidenbacher commented on 2014-06-13 23:36 (UTC)

@mariojuniorjp: Also check the file /etc/makepkg.conf for the BUILDDIR stanza. That will tell you where makepkg is building it. Check for space there.

Scimmia commented on 2014-06-13 23:35 (UTC)

The fact that it's asking you if you want to restart means you're using a helper of some sort. From the looks of it, I would say yaourt. By default, yaourt builds in /tmp, which is on tmpfs. That's your problem.

graysky commented on 2014-06-13 23:32 (UTC)

Seems like something thinks otherwise... where are you building (type pwd in the build dir)... also, are you using an aur helper? Don't do that. Just try makepkg -srci and see if that gives problems.

mariojuniorjp commented on 2014-06-13 23:31 (UTC)

I'm getting an error on the part of the kernel build, and do not know how to solve.

I think it's because repo-ck moves lots of data and they [godaddy] want me to get sick of them and drop my unlimited service they have me in at an old rate. They have offered to upgrade me to a dedicated server for higher reliability several times now for a large increase in my monthly fee. Each time I remind them that my plan is unlimited and that they can upgrade me without a charge. Bastards. I am working slowly with barrikad to setup a mirror on his service. I have been very busy with work/family shit and traveling though. I am booked this weekend as well but hope to do some testing and setup with him shortly.

Just substitute the line in this PKGBUILD for it. Please build the package selecting the nconfig option for your hardware, boot into it and let me know that my stuff works.

I see now that this is confirmed: I will need to adjust the patch accordingly.

graysky commented on 2014-06-07 19:29 (UTC)

Interesting that with the new version of gcc, these "older" options for march and mtune seem to have been made more generic. For example, on my ivy: % gcc -c -Q -march=native --help=target | grep march -march= ivybridge Older gcc version returned -march= core-avx-i

graysky commented on 2014-06-07 19:23 (UTC)

@dlh - For haswell: CONFIG_MCOREAVX2 gets set which uses -march=core-avx2 -mtune=core-avx2. See:

dlh commented on 2014-06-07 12:35 (UTC)

@elektorronikci: I have G3220 and with native I have -mno-avx -mno-avx2 But you are re saying that linux-ck-haswell is compiled with those options, right? That is why I am unable to run it, correct me if I am wrong?

elektorronikci commented on 2014-06-06 17:07 (UTC)

@sash-arch, your CPU doesn't have AVX2 set:

elektorronikci commented on 2014-06-06 17:01 (UTC)

I installed your ck-haswell compilation, now it is running. Not much time running, so not tested enough I think, but it really seems fine. If any problem happens, I will acknowledge.

graysky commented on 2014-06-06 09:59 (UTC)

As a test can either of you guys [tweeserhead or elektorronikci] try the ck-haswell packages on your haswell systems to confirm the problem is not with them + the hardware?

elektorronikci commented on 2014-06-06 08:16 (UTC)

I have i7-4770. I don't use ck-haswell repo but compile with -march=native. I use bfs&bfq. (bfqv7r3 had some issues before) There is no problem.

walkingrobot commented on 2014-06-06 00:04 (UTC)

Sorry, I forgot to mention it's a haswell processor

walkingrobot commented on 2014-06-06 00:02 (UTC)

Well this kinda misses the point but I compile with -march=native and CONFIG_MNATIVE

graysky commented on 2014-06-03 19:03 (UTC)

Not sure what to tell you guys... are other haswell users out there using the ck-haswell repo packages without issue?

dlh commented on 2014-06-03 14:03 (UTC)

@sash-arch I have the same problem as you, therefore I switched to generic linux-ck package.

sash-arch commented on 2014-06-02 22:36 (UTC)

Haswell... sascha@server ~ % gcc -c -Q -march=native --help=target | grep march -march= haswell

graysky commented on 2014-06-02 22:35 (UTC)

Not sure what to make of that, sash. Ivy gets CONFIG_MCOREAVXI which haswell gets CONFIG_MCOREAVX2 which are the correct flags. What does the following return for you? gcc -c -Q -march=native --help=target | grep march

sash-arch commented on 2014-06-02 22:30 (UTC)

I have an Celeron G1840 CPU. It's an "Haswell" CPU but the Linux-ck-haswell Package doesn't work with CPU. It stops working while loading the initial ramdisk. If i switch to linux-ck-ivybridge, everything works fine.

koshak commented on 2014-05-30 07:11 (UTC)

@graysky Sorry, seems like local proxy server gives me unzipped version of this patch for some reason, so sha256sum is different and its contents is plain-text... On-the-fly PKGBUILD editing fixed this particular issue.

graysky commented on 2014-05-29 19:45 (UTC)

Let me take them in order: clfarron4 - Yes, that patch is needed for building with SMP but this is the first time I can remember it coming up. In the interest of simplicity when I merge this PKGBUILD with the official ARCH PKGBUILD on major version bumps, I want to minimize the potential for errors on my part and thus am rejecting the request to add the SMP patch. CK may roll it into his patchset which is fine, but there aren't many people building this package on a single core system. @janck - I see, you're saying that the modification is needed to keep the build from FAILING in the case of you stripping out the extraneous config options. OK. I will implement your fix and for my sanity comment the PKGBUILD as such so I don't nuke it on an major version merge. @koshak - The sums match for me, not sure why your sums are different. I also don't understand your comment about the gz being txt. Are you editing with something smart like vim? For example, vim will decompress the gz when you open the gz transparently. I hope that addresses everyone's concerns.

docwild commented on 2014-05-29 13:20 (UTC)

as clfarron4 mentioned below I suggested a CONFIG_SMP patch on the forum repo topic by mistake. That post is now gone but I'll put it here: Adding [code] if grep --quiet "# CONFIG_SMP is not set" "${startdir}/config.last" 2&>0 /dev/null || grep --quiet "# CONFIG_SMP is not set" "${startdir}/config.x86_64.last" 2&>0 /dev/null then msg "Patch NOSMP patch" patch -Np1 -i "${srcdir}/ck-nosmp.patch" fi [/code] at the very end of the prepare() function, after populating the config.old file allows users with uniprocessors to disable symmetric multiprocessing support in kernel config (it has some overhead). The "ck-nosmp.patch" file here: Mentioned on cks blog here:

koshak commented on 2014-05-29 09:40 (UTC)

wrong sum for prepare() is looking for enable_additional_cpu_optimizations_for_gcc.patch, which is absent. instead enable_additional_cpu_optimizations_for_gcc.patch.gz is present but it is not a gzip file. It is pure text. WTF?

janck commented on 2014-05-29 09:39 (UTC)

After removing all dvb shit from kernel config, include/config/dvb does not exist in the source tree anymore, and consequently the build fails at line 432. This fixes my particular problem (have been testing that it works this time): if [ -d include/config/dvb/ ]; then mkdir -p "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/modules/${_kernver}/build/include/config/dvb/" cp include/config/dvb/*.h "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/modules/${_kernver}/build/include/config/dvb/" fi

clfarron4 commented on 2014-05-29 09:29 (UTC)

Some has suggested this in the BBS, to fix something to do with SMP:

graysky commented on 2014-05-28 22:22 (UTC)

@janck - But again, the PKGBUILD as-is should accomplish this: mkdir -p "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/modules/${_kernver}/build/include/config/dvb/" cp include/config/dvb/*.h "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/modules/${_kernver}/build/include/config/dvb/"

janck commented on 2014-05-28 22:13 (UTC)

Found a fix from a previous build. # this line will allow the package to build if a user disables the dvb shit find include/config/dvb -name '*.h' -exec cp {} "${pkgdir}/usr/src/linux-${_kernver}/include/config/dvb/" \;

graysky commented on 2014-05-28 18:55 (UTC)

@janck - Guess I'm confused... your statement says if include/config/dvb exists copy include/config/dvb/*.h to "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/modules/${_kernver}/build/include/config/dvb/" The current PKGBUILD just does that, first making the destination on line 432 and doing the same copy on line 433. What am I missing?

janck commented on 2014-05-28 04:58 (UTC)

sorry to confuse. What needs to be done is to repalce line 432 with this one: [[ -e include/config/dvb/ ]] && cp include/config/dvb/*.h "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/modules/${_kernver}/build/include/config/dvb/"

Yes, those lines are in the PKGBUILD. I am confused.

janck commented on 2014-05-27 20:52 (UTC)

yes... did you check?

graysky commented on 2014-05-27 20:03 (UTC)

@janck - That is contained in this PKGBUILD, no?

janck commented on 2014-05-27 19:25 (UTC)

line 432: # and... # mkdir -p "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/modules/${_kernver}/build/include/config/dvb/" cp include/config/dvb/*.h "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/modules/${_kernver}/build/include/config/dvb/"

graysky commented on 2014-05-26 18:23 (UTC)

Shit... did I merge out that line again? I need to review some past PKGBUILDs. I have a nasty habit of comparing linux-ck to linux the ARCH package to make sure I capture all the new changes. I think I may have merged out our change. I will look into it; faster if you can and point me to it given how busy I am these days.

janck commented on 2014-05-26 17:36 (UTC)

All dvb config has been diabled, and I get this error when compiling: ==> Starting package_linux-ck-headers()... cp: cannot stat ‘include/config/dvb/*.h’: No such file or directory ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package_linux-ck-headers().

@graysky: yes, the generic package works fine, but linux-ck-haswell not.

@dlh - If you install the generic packages from repo-ck does that render you with a bootable system? Post #1805 in this thread reports no problem with haswell.

This section of the package build's comments needs to be updated: "To keep track of which modules are needed for your specific system/hardware, # give module_db script a try: # This PKGBUILD will call it directly to probe all the modules you have logged!" needs to be changed to To keep track of which modules are needed for your specific system/hardware, # give modprobed_db script a try: # This PKGBUILD will call it directly to probe all the modules you have logged!

graysky commented on 2014-04-12 22:19 (UTC)

I am now hosting the BFQ patches until their site is back up. Access them like so: 1) Download the linux-ck source tarball, untar it, enter the linux-ck directory 2) sed -i 's|^_bfqpath=.*$|_bfqpath=\"\"|' PKGBUILD Now you can build it.

Here I described my issue, it's actually not related with kvm, I was confused cause I'm using this feature too

coderkun commented on 2014-04-08 15:23 (UTC)

@adam777, @graysky: On my laptop KVM (Qemu) works flawless with linux-ck 3.13.9-1. @dlh: Maybe it is also related to something else?

coderkun commented on 2014-04-06 15:47 (UTC)

@graysky: I disabled the KVM-path in the PKGBUILD and recompiled linux-ck but KVM is still not working for me. So I’m not sure if the path makes it better or worse. What about you @dlh?

graysky commented on 2014-04-06 15:33 (UTC)

coderkun and dlh - adam777 requested that patch in the bbs and replied that all is well with kvm.[1] I asked him to comment here. If the patch is causing breakage for users, I will disable it. I just need to know since I do not use KVM. 1.

dlh commented on 2014-04-06 15:31 (UTC)

Maybe it was fixed upstream

coderkun commented on 2014-04-06 15:12 (UTC)

@graysky: I have no evidence that the patch really causes this but KVM stopped working for me at around the same time.

graysky commented on 2014-04-06 14:22 (UTC)

@dlh - Yes, since v3.13.6-1 that patch has been included per a user request. Are you saying that your KVM functionality has been broken since that release, in other words, that patch has caused the regression?

dlh commented on 2014-04-06 12:40 (UTC)

graysky do you build your kernel in repo-ck with ? From version 3.13.6 it's stopped working.

Please nevermind my earlier comment. It has nothing to do with the package and was probably in the wrong place anyway. Thanks for the hint about CONFIG_FHANDLE though.

graysky commented on 2014-03-16 10:25 (UTC)

Ah, didn't see his/her comment. I understand now. I can tell you that unless corro modded, it, the provided config has this set: % uname -r 3.13.6-1-ck % zgrep CONFIG_FHA /proc/config.gz CONFIG_FHANDLE=y

TurboLama commented on 2014-03-16 08:37 (UTC)

graysky: no, it's not. I was just reacting to comments posted by "corro", since he uses his custom config, and is having trouble with systemd, most probably because it requires CONFIG_FHANDLE from version 209 onwards (see:

graysky commented on 2014-03-15 17:15 (UTC)

@Turbo - What is corro's config? I do not believe this is something my package provides or that I have any control over, no?

TurboLama commented on 2014-03-15 17:12 (UTC)

graysky: yes, i know, but it's probably missing in corro's config, hence the problem with systemd 210.

corro commented on 2014-03-06 22:45 (UTC)

I tried the default kernel config instead of my tailored one and it worked with the current ck kernel and systemd. I still don't know where the problem is (I did not modify the config in months), but I've come to the conclusion that it must be my (or better my config's) fault.

Schmeidenbacher commented on 2014-03-06 09:31 (UTC)

Now that you mention it, i run my system from an encrypted lvm configuration. My mkinitcpio.conf has the following MODULES and HOOKS configurations: MODULES="dm_mod ext2 ext4" HOOKS="base udev v86d autodetect modconf block keyboard keymap lvm2 encrypt filesystems shutdown fsck" Note, that my system is not configured in english, so i had to add keymap and keyboard early on to get my encryption password entered correctly.

xcomcmdr commented on 2014-03-06 06:31 (UTC)

I've tried every way to build linux-ck (without any modification but the ck, with the stock configuration, only with probed modules, ...). Still the same problem : Kernel panic - not syncing : VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0) Google suggests to include the ext4 module in the initrd image... Interesting. Since last night, while using the stock kernel and copying 35 GB of MP3s from /dev/sda2 (ext4) to /dev/sda1 (ntfs3g) firefox and audacious hanged a few times, which means that simple multitasking doesn't work (!), I wanted to try linux-ck's BFQ I/O scheduler once again...

Schmeidenbacher commented on 2014-03-05 22:26 (UTC)

Mine works fine. The only issue i encountered with systemd 210-2 was the sudden urge of my quad-core desktop computer to start systemd-backlight@eeepc-wmi.service for some insane reason – scaring me with a nice red "FAILED" during boot – and systemd-logind.service to complain that it can't apply ACLs. Neither managed to hinder boot otherwise. My kernel is custom build using mostly the modules and drivers i need on my system. The kernel config can be found here:

xcomcmdr commented on 2014-03-05 22:10 (UTC)

same issue here, since ages ago. Linux-ck can't mount / and panics.

corro commented on 2014-03-04 22:52 (UTC)

It looks like I've encountered some troubles during boot with the 3.13.5 kernel and systemd 210-2. It only happens with the ck kernel, neither default ARCH nor AUR mainline kernel seem to be affected. The boot process always times out when mounting the local file systems and drops to the rescue shell. After a downgrade to systemd 208-11, the current ck kernel works fine again. You can find the boot log here: Am I overlooking something or is there anyone experiencing the same problem?
