I have added a signed, unofficial user repository for linux-rt, backed by this PKGBUILD.

You can add it to your pacman.conf with:

Server =$arch

I'll try to keep it as up-to-date as possible and retain old versions.

Hello! I have difficulties with starting my system on linux-rt kernel. There are some photos and videos: Such problems happening for about half of a year, but now system is just not booting. Native linux package is OK, using it now. If you need more information, please let me know. System is up to date, linux-rt-headers is installed.

@m8D2: No, I saw that on the kernel mailing list, but think I've seen it mentioned in other places too. Maybe google will find some references.

Linus pulled a change to the kernel config file which indicates that he accepted it, and that the process has started, no clue when it will be finished. But I also know this from other communications with kernel developers.

Somehow I don't think you're alone being interest in seeing the patch set finally added to mainline :)

@jhernberg do you happen to have a source? I'm very interested in seeing rt patch getting to the main/lts kernels. Thanks!

In fact lately the process started to bring the rt patchset into the main kernel, so hopefully in the not too distant future it will just be another config option and no longer a set of out of tree patches.

Great to see RT still around after reading "The future of RT-Linux?" question in

There's a thread at the Jack-Devel mailing list, that is interesting regarding Spectre mitigations and CONFIG_AUDIT, see advice on xruns. The subscriber is able to reduce frames/period from 24 to 12, take a look at this posting.

@microsoftenator: you're absolutely right! same goes for linux-rt-lts (had a false positive when grepping for BCACHE). Please forget what I wrote earlier! :)

@dvzrv I'm pretty sure bcache is disabled for rt kernels

dvzrv commented on 2019-06-17 22:36

Please also note, that the current TCP based vulnerability in all kernels probably won't be patched in linux-rt, until it is ported to 5.1.x (as 5.0.x is EOL).

5.0.19_rt is working for me. @Ralf thanks for the tip. @jhernberg and @dvzrv thanks for your work maintaining and packaging this!
