Works fine here. I guess you experience the same flickering in any other ncurses-based program? If so, the problem lies somewhere else and should be fixed there. As a workaround, you could try to use one of the other graphical config menus.

I have strange flickering when menuconfig is presented. I can't do anything in the menu, only kill it.

I also suggest changing "/sbin/depmod $kernver" to "depmod $kernver"

Hi. In the linux-git.install you need to change "/sbin/mkinitcpio -p $pkgname" to "mkinitcpio -p $pkgname". In mkinitcpio 0.8.0-1, which is currently in [testing], the binary path is changed to /usr/bin [1]. So the kernel image fails to generate for users of [testing] and eventually [core] when mkinitcpio 0.8.0-1 gets moved.

Seems I did not test this change carefully enough. The intention was to add the localmodversion to the directory name and not another part of the kernel version. The latest package should be fine now.

it's possible to make the extramodules direcstory more useful so that out-of-tree modules don't have to be rebuild and reinstalled each time linux-git changes, if we name it something generic like extramodules-3.1-git instead of the full git version number. I'm trying this variation as an experiment by changing line 367 accordingly in this PKGBUILD. I can now install a newer version of linux-git without having to rebuild the nvidia module. Not a huge saving but it works.

Thanks for the reminder. I've noticed that too, but had no time to spend on this at that moment.
Basically, depmod has to be run before mkinitcpio. Not sure why it worked before, but it will be fixed in the new packages I'll upload shortly.

I've got a mkinitcpio weirdness when installing this kernel. Here's what I see: The resulting linux-git.img indeed has no modules and won't boot. BUT if I scroll up and copy the mkinitcpio line from the terminal and invoke mkinitcpio manually, namely: sudo mkinitcpio -k 3.0.0-rc7-dirty -c /etc/mkinitcpio.conf -g /boot/linux-git.img, the resulting image is fine. So this is what I've been doing each time I install a new git kernel. This happens on both my desktop (Intel quad core) and laptop (Thinkpad with Core 2 duo). The same thing happens with the kernel26-git package, btw, although I've been successfully (other than this mkinitcpio thing) using this package for several weeks.

is there a difference to kernel26-git at the moment?
