Hey guys, can't install it because GPG error when importing. Any solution?

(edit) solved with: gpg --keyserver --recv-key 3B94A80E50A477C7

Kernel was updated with futex2 patches taken from linux-tkg ( Those futex2 patches are not the simplified ones sent for kernel inclusion on 5/08/2021 (I tried them and while it worked and futex2 showed up in /sys/kernel, no wine build is actually capable of detecting it), but are the last ones that actually work with wine and proton, submitted before that.

Your website still cant be reached for me btw. Repo is working tho.

Today we did server maintenance, but it should be up and running now.

What happened to the main repo?

Since the last update, I've added a new patch to improve Proton performance. Many thanks to the package that provided the patch.

I keep this package in sync with the archlinux stable version. 4.15 will come out when the archlinux community decides 4.15 is ready to transition from Staging to Core.

@Plexcon for your systemd problem, I think you have to recompile virtual box modules (if you use dkms, recompile them).

About the advantages, if you had spent some time reading the other comments, the description and the patches in general you probably had found the culpirt: originally this kernel's main advantage was the inclusion of the BFQ disk scheduler patchset. After its inclusion on mainline linux since 4.12, we found out that you could not enable this scheduler as the default scheduler from the kernel itself, but you rather had to write udev rules for the disks on wich you want to enable the scheduler. After 4.11 we decided to continue this package adding only a patch that enables BFQ by default for all schedulers, the modified xpad module for the steam controller and HZ=1000 for cpu interrupts (wich is probably the setting wich incides more on the tests you posted) that could help increase system responsiveness/snappyness.

Finally, I want to point out that the bfq version that was accepted to merge into the kernel is based on blk-mq, while the old one that was included in this kernel isn't.

This kernel is intended for people that wants to low latency on disks and system usage in general, non for crunching big numbers. Some users gave us a positive feedback using this kernel for games instead of the stock arch kernel or other patched ones.

I hope I helped you, Happy holydays
