1. Binaries available in my repo:
Server =$arch

Then, import the key:
Key-ID: pacman-key --recv-keys 50AAD02AEB1F61C9
Donwload and import the key: pacman-key --add /path/to/downloaded/keyfile

Last, sign the key. pacman-key --lsign-key 50AAD02AEB1F61C9

2. After install adjust your boot cmd line. ClearLinux uses clr-boot-manager which takes care of that. This is upstream default:
quiet console=tty0 console=ttyS0,115200n8 cryptomgr.notests initcall_debug intel_iommu=igfx_off kvm-intel.nested=1 no_timer_check noreplace-smp page_alloc.shuffle=1 rcu_nocbs=0-64 rcupdate.rcu_expedited=1 rootfstype=ext4,btrfs,xfs,f2fs tsc=reliable rw 
3. For loading unsigned modules. (nvidia, virtualbox, etc.)

If secure boot is disabled just add module.sig_unenforce boot parameter. Otherwise, you'll have to build your kernel with CONFIG_MODULE_SIG_FORCE disabled.

4. Once again (as requested) the _subarch is set to native so for anyone who is building the binaries for redistribution should set it to number corresponding to Generic-x86-64.

@Enverex The only thing clearlinux team changed was to enable pre-GCN 1.2 AMDGPU driver support in 4.18.5-2 (clr 4.18.5-628). Have you checked the wiki or troubleshoot in any way to check if that commit caused this?

Just a heads up, HDMI audio (on an RX580) stopped working for me a version or two ago with this. Had to switch back to the normal kernel.

@aorth I've added the info in the pinned comment about unsigned modules.

aorth commented on 2018-09-04 07:19

Does anyone know how to get DKMS modules like VirtualBox to work with this kernel? When I try to modprobe the modules I get the error "required key not available." For what it's worth, I do not have secure boot enabled.

Edit: @metak, thanks for the tip about the module.sig_unenforce boot parameter!

Yes, of course. Thanks a lot!

metak commented on 2018-08-23 15:46

@enihcam If others don't disagree then I'll drop linux-clear-docs package in aur (next update), but I'll leave it in my repo build so if anyone needs it they can still get it there. Is this okay?

enihcam commented on 2018-08-23 10:04

@metak, can you set python-sphinx and graphviz as optional dependencies? They are only needed by linux-clear-docs.

Or can you split linux-clear-docs out? like linux-ck. Very few people read local docs.

linux-clear is running in my router and NAS. python-sphinx and graphviz would bring too many unnecessary dependencies.

@airend Thanx. That's the best way really. If the clear team are willing to enable something then it's easier for me since I don't have to change/patch anything. Your requested changes are now available with latest update.

airend commented on 2018-08-04 03:13

@metak, done in

metak commented on 2018-08-03 14:38

Update 2018-08-03 Update your boot parameter line. modprobe.blacklist and i915.fastboot were removed. (The pinned comment is updated version.)

@airend Could your please ask first over at if they would be willing to enable that by default in clr kernel?
