(4.14.5+) Because Arch itself has dropped i686 support, I have removed i686 from the PKGBUILD and there is no config file either.

If you don't want to compile this package yourself, I am providing the package on my repo [1].

Dehir: What?

Dehir commented on 2018-04-06 15:18

IF there is every possible to get realtime kernel with vfio same time :P

If either of you can get a core dump, I can investigate, but I don't know what else to tell you because I do not have the same hardware as you.

I can also confirm that with 4.11.4+ I cannot start my VMs that have a dedicated GPU. Experiencing output very similar to @cinna .

markzz commented on 2018-02-10 01:51

cinna: None of those functions in the call trace are in the patches that this kernel provide. I would either file a bug with Arch or with upstream.

I'm having a similar issue as zatricky where a VM refuses to launch when I have a dedicated gpu attached. Here's a relevant dmesg when I attempt to launch it. As for my hardware I'm running a Ryzen processor with a dedicated GPU for my host and another for my VMs

markzz commented on 2018-02-09 19:46

zatricky: Are you using an Intel iGPU for the host? Also, some relevant dmesg output would be helpful.

Latest package 4.15.1-1 resulted in sporadic errors from libvirtd when attempting to launch VM with dedicated GPU: Feb 08 22:08:04 <hostname> libvirtd[612]: 2018-02-08 20:08:04.406+0000: 612: error : virNetSocketReadWire:1808 : End of file while reading data: Input/output error</hostname>

Other VMs (not using GPU) were functional. From the moment I attempted to start the dedicated-GPU VM, virsh commands would no longer complete and virt-manager would become unresponsive.

Downgraded to 4.14.11-1 - all is working again.

Sorry about the lack of updates (if only I had unlimited time). I am currently building and testing 4.15 and you can expect it by this coming Friday.

EDIT: It is up and I need i915 users to tell me if everything's okay.

Hiya, how can I use this kernel on Manjaro Linux? ty
