The repository for linux-rt and linux-rt-lts has moved to a new location.

If you use the custom repository, please update your pacman.conf accordingly, as the other one is going away by the end of the month (January 2021)!

@dvzrv: Thanks for adding to the wiki! Very useful to know, especially as it is vital to the functioning of firmware updates. Just curious, though: is there a specific reason for disabling efivars in the rt-kernels? Does it impact performance in any way?

dvzrv commented on 2020-02-12 21:51

@kflak: It seems @Alvo alread provided the answer. Should've checked the mailing list earlier. These questions keep popping up from time to time :)

As a sidenote: I've added it to the wiki (for next time ;-) ).

@Alvo: efi=runtime kernel parameter seems to do the trick. Thanks a lot!

Alvo commented on 2020-02-12 14:35

@kflak Try adding efi=runtime to your kernel parameters.

@dvzrv: same story on linx-rt-lts. No efivars available there either.

kflak commented on 2020-02-12 10:54

@dvzrv: Thanks! I'll check the linux-rt-lts as well and see if this works.

dvzrv commented on 2020-02-12 10:49

@kflak: That's an odd one for sure. I'll try to reproduce this and get back to you!

@dvzrv: I marked it as solved because I accomplished my firmware upgrade objective by using the vanilla kernel. I'm using the prebuilt binary. Huge thanks for that, by the way! My glibc version is 2.31-1, linux-rt 5.4.17-rt9-2-rt

@kflak: Hm, I don't see why this wouldn't work. The config is the same as the config for the linux package in [core] in that regard (although there are other differences, which I'll look into in the coming weeks).

Did you rebuild this package for 5.4.17.9-2 or did you install it from the unofficial repository in that version? If you're still on 5.4.17.9-1, but have glibc 2.31 there might be breakage and you should rebuild/upgrade.

Also, why do you mark the topic as [SOLVED], if it isn't solved?

linux-rt is not able to mount efivarfs on my system. With the vanilla kernel this works fine. Any pointers? For more details, check my post on the forum: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1887291#p1887291
