The prebuilt kernel is built using Clang/LLVM 11.

The linux-nitrous binary package can be installed by adding following lines to your /etc/pacman/pacman.conf:

[linux-nitrous]
Server = https://github.com/xdevs23/linux-nitrous/releases/latest/download/

Then you can install the package using your AUR helper or pacman (e. g. sudo pacman -Syu linux-nitrous linux-nitrous-headers)

You probably need to add my key before being able to install my packages:

sudo pacman-key --recv-keys E9C2DECAC962CB3AF1376D44148A9E3C9C3E3BF0
sudo pacman-key --lsign-key E9C2DECAC962CB3AF1376D44148A9E3C9C3E3BF0

@dedguy21 Thank you!

This package was previously a binary package. @eschwartz suggested that using a custom repository is a better way of doing this and thus I changed this one to one that compiles from source (as it should be) and created a custom repository. The cool thing is that if the package was already installed, once the repository is added to the pacman config, it will upgrade the previously installed package without any issues.

I have to up vote this package.

I appreciate it that you provided a bin version, as it's a pain in the butt having to recompile a kernel after every update

superboringdev commented on 2020-03-23 20:21

Alright, I'll keep them in the custom repository then.

I didn't notice that there were .sig files in this git repository until you answered my question about redundancy. I simply overlooked it so thanks for pointing it out.

This is a really great community :)

eschwartz commented on 2020-03-23 20:18

They're extremely useful for the Pacman repository, since pacman -U https://.../<filename>.pkg.tar.xz will validate those to make sure the binary product is signed, and repo-add could in theory be changed in future to use detached signatures rather than storing the .sig files as base64'ed blobs inside the linux-nitrous.db file (that's a topic for the pacman-dev mailing list though).

It's just they're not very useful to the PKGBUILD which isn't doing anything with them. :D

Oh I'm sorry, I didn't notice that those were pushed as well, I just removed them and adjusted the .gitignore file accordingly. Sorry for that!

Should I keep uploading them to the repository itself though or are they redundant there as well?

eschwartz commented on 2020-03-23 20:07

They are redundant, and redundant things waste time and space and clutter up git log.

But also binary files don't compress well in git, and the AUR has checks to deny pushes of files that are above a certain limit... but allowing kernel .config and other moderate sized files is a balance we have to strike, so sometimes things sneak in, often by accident. We'd prefer to keep the server disk usage down where possible. Hence it would be greatly appreciated to prevent any more of these from getting uploaded.

Thanks!

@eschwartz I can remove them from the script I use to upload those files.

Is it bad that they are uploaded or are they just redundant? AFAIK they only contain the signature but since I don't have a lot of experience in these kind of things, I'm not too sure about it.

eschwartz commented on 2020-03-23 19:50

Hey -- you're accidentally committing .pkg.tar.xz.sig files to git. Can you please add this to your .gitignore?

@eschwartz Thanks for clarifying. I will take a look at it and move the prebuilt package to a custom repository when I have more free time to spare. After that, this one will be changed to a build-from-source repository and I'll notify users using a pinned comment.
