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 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.

@btd1337 Hi. That first line should be [home_metakcahura_kernel_Arch_Extra_standard].

@metak how to use your repository in Arch Linux?

I tried this:

# binaries for Clear Linux kernel
Server =

but this error occurs:

error: failed to get "Arch_Extra_standard.db" file from The requested URL returned error: 404
Error: Failed to update Arch_Extra_standard (unexpected error)
error: failed to sync all databases
Error installing repo packages

Thanks in advance

I have uploaded some packages to download the kernel from clear linux repo, instead of compiling it from source. linux-clear-bin for the kernel, linux-clear-headers-bin for the headers, and intel-ucode-clear for intel cpu and i915 ucode. Hope it helps.

P.S. It is currently at 5.2.5-813, as in

No, I only updated to the latest upstream kernel bugfix release 5.2.5.

After upgrading to linux-clear 5.2.5-1, proprietary nvidia driver becomes to work. Have you applied a new fix?

Thanks for this It helped me a lot

@metak Updated kernel today. No changes are seen. I even can't find Nvidia messages in dmesg, Xorg.0.log also silent about Nvidia. Very strange behavior...

metak commented on 2019-07-29 22:17

@zheiling On second thought, your issue could be related to this? Latest native kernel issues with custom drivers #1048 Can you try the latest version?

@danhyal other kernels work normally with switching. In CLI version found this message: Config parsing : unknown option kill_logind in section optimus. Ignoring. Config parsing : unknown option kill_x11 in section optimus. Ignoring. Config parsing : unknown option login_manager_control in section optimus. Ignoring. Config parsing : unknown option pci_reset in section optimus. Ignoring. Config parsing : unknown option terminate_sessions in section optimus. Ignoring. Config parsing : unknown option dri in section nvidia. Ignoring. BTW: how to format text in aurweb? Can't find instructions.

@zheiling Do you still have the problem on the default arch kernel?
