Ok, I finally got this to build using the steps here: Hope that helps someone.

Even with the kernel though I still cannot get suspend to RAM to work so I've just been using hibernate...

@greg2010 can you point me to how I can update this myself? I'm not particularly enthused by the idea of being responsible for a package, but I think I can get this limping enough with my limited kernel knowledge.

If you edit the build files and go to PKGBUILD, you can tweak the URL for git pulling to reference's repo by basing it off of this PKGBUILD:

Keep in mind you'll need to modify the valid GPG keys section so they reference the keys in the linux-mainline PKGBUILD as well, and import the GPG keys.

Running into this same problem, crossing fingers it'l get fixed soon. It looks like this kernel might just fix a few problems i've been dealing with. Took a short look at the build-files, but i'm not tech savvy enough to know where to make edits to fix it ¯\(ツ)

After cloning and running makepkg I get the following error: fatal: unable to update url base from redirection: asked for: redirect: ==> ERROR: Failure while downloading archlinux-linux git repo

Thanks for your works. However I cannot resume from the swapfile (following the archwiki guide) after hibernate. There is a white underline flashing on the top left of my screen and it freeze. I must delete the resume options from rEFInd. My model is MBP 11,5

I get a peer reset error trying to download this. I don't know why it goes so slow.

Thanks so much for this kernel. I had a weird issue and I do not know if you addressed it when modifying this kernel to MacBook needs. My headphones would play garbled sound with an echo. The "options snd-hda-intel model=mba42" for my MacBook Air 4,2 would not fix it. I took the model=mba42 from here: I also found out that if you separated the audio-channels and set left and right output further apart, the issue would be fixed. The output balance on both, right and left, stayed the same, however you adjusted the controls.

Now, with this kernel (linux-macbook 5.9.9), the issue is resolved, even after a startup. Thanks so much. Michael

@ohell happy to hear your issues were resolved. The resume hook, AFAIK, is required if you want to have suspend to disk (hibernation) functionality. Suspend to RAM should work fine without it.

@jso8910: this package is a fork of upstream Arch kernel, with a patch addressing Apple hardware wart that would cause the OS to crash on shutdown. In addition to that, it provides a systemd unit to prevent spurious wakeups.

If you're not experiencing issues with the shutdown or suspend to ram, you probably do not need this package. As to why this package is so large, it builds the kernel from source.

Just a quick question: What do I need this package for? I am going to dual boot linux on my macbook pro 14,1, and I am wondering what issues this fixes. Plus, I am wondering why it takes so long to install and takes so much storage. I had a 32 GB Manjaro install a while back and this package took up (at its peak during the build) at least 10-15 GB of storage. I am reluctant to install this based on its large size, so I need some actual benefits to it because none of the comments nor the description is very clear.
