1. Binaries available in my repo: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/metakcahura:/kernel/Arch_Extra_standard/x86_64/
[home_metakcahura_kernel_Arch_Extra_standard]
Server = http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/metakcahura:/kernel/Arch_Extra_standard/$arch

Then, import the key:
Key-ID: pacman-key --recv-keys 50AAD02AEB1F61C9
Keyfile: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/metakcahura:/kernel/Arch_Extra_standard/x86_64/home_metakcahura_kernel_Arch_Extra_standard.key
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.

Now ok... Thanks :-)

@Athemis Sorry about that, fixed now. I basically have three slightly different pkgbuild files to update (local, aur, and obs for binaries)... ;-)

Thanks for keeping this up to date! However, 4.17.1 fails to compile for me, unless I change $_clearver to 27b762cf009a56fa47e00660d602f9db4b672ffb.

@gaougalos That's expected if you're building this kernel on top of the default arch kernel since all those config options are not present in default clear .config but are in stock arch.

When i enable localmodconfig it returns

As of 4.16.14-1 I've added kernel_gcc_optimizations patch. Disabled by default. Try and report any issues.

make[1]: *** Nessuna regola per generare l'obiettivo "firmware/intel-ucode/06-4f-01", necessario per "firmware/intel-ucode/06-4f-01.gen.o". Arresto.

@Osleg Moved acpi_rev_override as a choice. As for those additional patches, I don't know, this kernel is meant for newer intel skylake processors...

Osleg commented on 2018-05-02 02:16

@metak I'm not sure it should be enabled by default as this is rarely used. Tho on the other hand vanilla kernel has it enabled so I don't know which approach would be better. imho tho providing prompts to enable/disable features like it happens in linux-ck, including the -mnative builds requested below would be the best option to allow every user to chose the options he needs the most.

metak commented on 2018-05-01 07:26

@enihcam I'll take a look and maybe I'll add it in as an option if it's not a problem.
