A few things BEFORE building this package and/or commenting here:

READ THE WIKI AND UNDERSTAND HOW TO USE MAKEPKG AND EVERYTHING IT ENTAILS

If you do not read the wiki and ask a stupid question, you'll either get a stupid/terse response from me or you will be ignored. If this continues, this may require me to bring this up to a TU for account suspensions.

Remember, there's also search engines that you can also look up errors that you get related to makepkg.

WE WILL NOT MODIFY THE CONFIG FILE

This package's goal is to be as close to the Arch Linux linux package. Therefore, we use the config file from that package. We will not, unless under very special circumstances, modify the config file for any reason.

You can make changes yourself. You should be capable enough to make any changes you see fit without us making the changes on our end.

WE WILL NOT ADD X PATCH

This one has been more recent. The goal of this package is to add a MINIMAL patch set for IOMMU grouping and for VGA arbitration on Intel iGPUs. Under no circumstances will I backport patches that are not present in the linux repository on git.archlinux.org nor will I add a patch that adds a feature outside of the intended goal of this project.

If you absolutely feel that your patch is completely necessary, you MUST have ready a link to the appropriate discussion from the OFFICIAL LINUX KERNEL MAILING LISTS and/or from Arch Linux's Bug Tracker at bugs.archlinux.org. For the latter, they must be bugs present in the linux package in [core] and do NOT open a task on there if it is specific to this package (or any AUR package for that matter). I do not want to see links to reddit talking about some patch that you want to add.

If you want to add patches to your own build, that's completely fine.

DO NOT USE AN AUR HELPER THEN EXPECT US TO HELP

AUR helpers are unsupported and therefore we will not provide help to you unless you have verified it's not working with makepkg. I always make sure this package builds in a clean chroot before uploading here, so I know it builds on a clean and up to date Arch Linux system.

BINARY PACKAGES ARE PROVIDED FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE

Both maintainers of this package provide signed binary packages in unofficial pacman repositories maintained and signed by ourselves. If you do not want to compile this kernel yourself for whatever reason, feel free to make use of them.

Like markzz was, I'm providing updated builds in my (unofficial) user repository, if you don't want to build this yourself.

@slowbro thank you, but I have already set that option.

These GSOD/BSOD errors only started after I updated to this kernel. I switched to vfio-lts and it's working again.

I'll try the non-lts version in a few updates and see if that stabilizes things.

@markzz I am currently unable to boot my Windows VM with "KERNEL SECURITY CHECK FAILURE" Blue/Green Screen of Death.

I have attempted to boot into Windows Installer as well and I am seeing the same behaviour on a brand new ISO from MS.

Anyone who uses this PKGBUILD that actually uses the i915 VGA Arbitration patch, please let me know if you are currently having issues. It looks like to me that there's an issue in the current patch, but I do not personally use that part of this kernel.

I will be updating to 5.6.10.arch1-2 in the coming hours and would like to know if anyone can confirm my hunch.

Pushed commit 757f0700.

markzz commented on 2020-05-06 19:48

I'm trying to determine the cause now. I looked and saw that your package isn't built on a clean arch linux system (or chroot), so I'm doing some investigating.

EDIT: Since I didn't actually answer your question, it is a compiler error in the xen module, which is something neither patch touches directly in any way, so I'm poking around at what may be the issue that is related to that.

slowbro commented on 2020-05-06 19:33

What error do you get? I was able to build it last night and am running it now.

markzz commented on 2020-05-06 19:25

5.6.10.arch1-1 does not appear to build in a clean chroot.

markzz commented on 2020-05-01 15:52

daniel_shub: You're probably right, I added a pinned message. Heck, I wrote the patch that added that feature, I probably should use it. :-P
