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)!

@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 or did you install it from the unofficial repository in that version? If you're still on, 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:

I can't get it to work even with nvidia-dkms as the only dkms. I'm going to ask this question on the linux-rt-users.

I also had issues with nvidia-dkms, with a previous kernel. Then, I don't know how they disappeared. It might be the latest kernel. Or it might be that I replaced it with nvidia, upgraded the kernel, then replaced nvidia with nvidia-dkms again just to test once more, and it was working. Check also if you have other dkms modules, which might interfere and hide the real problem.

@dvzrv Thanks for the info I was able to boot into linux-rt without problem! I still get error when I run startx to start my window manager. The error I saw in demsg was "NVRM: failed to copy vbios to memory". I'm using nvidia-dkms and it's working fine with linux-ck-ivybridge. I wonder if you have experienced such issue before. Thanks in advance!

Tried, but same result. Core dump, and disks not recognized. I will live with virtualbox only in a linux kernel. It's a pity, because I was running VST plugins in Windows, routed to Linux. I don't plan to change virtualbox, as I carry an external disk with the virtualbox images wherever I go. I see that there are many issues with virtualbox, so perhaps they will be fixed somewhen. But at the moment, linux-rt is the only kernel having these issues.

Also, sorry, I forgot to push the changes for ;-) It is up now. Enjoy.

@aquilarubra: I don't use virtualbox, sorry. There seems to be an issue with it on current vanilla kernel as well (and this is not the first time DKMS for it breaks). If you can switch, I would suggest looking into KVM/QEMU to have less of a pain with the out-of-tree modules.

In regards to the topic of older kernels, they are all still there:

Note, that due to the way mkinitcpio and all kernel packages were changed, you might have to remove vmlinuz images in /boot before downgrading (depending on how far back you go).

@Alvo: Please make sure to read the news on the main website. There was an item about this.

Alvo commented on 2019-12-30 03:28

Hello, I have trouble generating vmlinuz for this kernel. There was no vmlinuz generated after installation and there is no preset for this kerenl while running mkinitcpio. Can someone help me with this problem?
