linux-2.6-zen.v2.6.36-zen0-full-git.tar.gz doesn't exist anymore

I wonder if it could be possible to change the behaviour of the script so that it would fetch the latest Linus' tree from and then download and patch it with latest zen snapshot. Will there be any problems from the technical side, I mean md5 check and other built-in makepkg features?

There's a mirror of the zen-sources GIT repository online at
Just change these two lines in PKGBUILD and you can use it:

I just updated my kernel last night from GIT using this pkgbuild, so the GIT works fine, at least with updating the tree. On occasion you get the Connection reset thing, but that's just when the server is too busy to accept your connection. The GIT is more up-to-date than any snapshot of the GIT could ever be. So I also don't see why this is marked out-of-date.

@diaword: Why? There's still a GIT repository, though I'm not able to pull it (fatal: read error: Connection reset by peer), but looking at the web version it seems it's still updated.

Flagged the package as "out-of-date" because of changes to zen-kernel release cycle.
Please see for news.
Daily snapshot diffs to vanilla kernel are available at

Added !strip option to the PKGBUILD (thanks falconindy)
I'm writing this from a fresh 2.6.37-zen0 kernel. :)

Please add !strip to the options. All kernels will need this when built with pacman 3.5 (or -git).

My bad, I'm sorry. :(
