Damentz sometimes updates sources and checksums do not match. Please let me know.

@sir_lucjan, thanks for the heads up

@DungSherlock, 'pkg' will use the Liquorix configuration used in the binary kernels from, while old will take your running configuration and execute 'make oldconfig', asking you to select options for new or updated menu items. If you're comfortable with the latter and are only interested in the kernel sources, then 'old' is the way to go. If you want the behavior you get from Liquorix binary kernels (Debian Sid, the major Ubuntu's), then choose 'pkg.

A commonly used option, since you're building from source, is to actually choose 'm'. This will let you adjust the 'pkg' configuration before the build starts. One advantage of this is you can optimize the kernel for your processor, giving you some marginal gains depending on what you're using the kernel for.

Different build option _config="pkg" and _config="old"? What is advice?

Probably MuQSS doesn't work properly with 4.16.17.

damentz commented on 2018-06-27 03:47

@sir_lucjan, please keep the patch at 4.16.16-2 for now, there's a stable patch in 4.16.17+ that's preventing some of my own systems from booting, but I currently don't have the time to figure out why only Arch is affected.

Seeing as how Arch itself has already moved to 4.17, it might be best to update linux-lqx once there's a 4.17 release - that'll probably include the fix.

@sir_lucjan : thx for looking into it. i cleaned out all my download caches and build locations and now it works ... odd ...

Hi navjack27,

Intel p-states are disabled deliberately because they return lower frequencies than ondemand during multicore loads, and keep the processor frequency / voltage ramped up too high during idle loads with MuQSS. Due to the nature of how MuQSS works, you'll almost never benefit from TurboBoost 3.0's single core boost speeds, since MuQSS is more likely to reschedule task on a neighboring logical or physical core than CFS is.

You have the option to change the configuration of the AUR package before building using menuconfig - you can always force enable it yourself if your particular system.

Please report @damentz.

navjack27 commented on 2018-05-06 15:59

PLEASE enable intel p-states in the .config. There shouldn't be any reason why my laptop is limited to 1800MHz. This is a serious oversight. I'm going through the rest of the .config and will point out any other inconsistencies with modern computing.
