The prebuilt kernel is built using Clang/LLVM 11.

The linux-nitrous binary package can be installed by adding following lines to your /etc/pacman/pacman.conf:

Server =

Then you can install the package using your AUR helper or pacman (e. g. sudo pacman -Syu linux-nitrous linux-nitrous-headers)

You probably need to add my key before being able to install my packages:

sudo pacman-key --recv-keys E9C2DECAC962CB3AF1376D44148A9E3C9C3E3BF0
sudo pacman-key --lsign-key E9C2DECAC962CB3AF1376D44148A9E3C9C3E3BF0

There is currently a syntax error in the install script which does not appear to cause any issues aside from an error appearing during install (but it still succeeds) but will likely cause boot issues after a reboot, so please refrain from updating, downgrade to 5.9.10 or keep a different kernel installed on the side. Will be fixed in a new update.

EDIT: fixed in 5.9.11-9

@thaewrapt linux-zen-git is still doing depmod and mkinitcpio:

Which surprises me but I'm going to remove that for the next update if it doesn't cause any issues.

@hashworks thanks for reporting the issue, I have added the lld dependency to all packages.

scripts/Kconfig.include:40: linker 'ld.lld' not found

extra/lld dependency missing?

Found out two issues on my setup.

  1. You don't need to depmod/mkinitcpio anymore with post-install/post-upgrade hooks, since it's now done by pacman itself, check other AUR packages (like, "linux-pds", etc.) or official kernel packages for reference. This way all DKMS modules wouldn't fail to be added to initramfs (as they only are built and become available after the install, thus the new behaviour).
  2. Any chance to add ZFS support ("zfs-dkms" and "zfs-utils" packages in AUR) to your kernel? Right now it's failing to build with following message:

There seems to be an issue with 5.8.1-1

I'm recompiling the kernel using stock clang which will be 5.8.1-2

Hopefully this fixes the issue.

Tried the linux-nitrous-git version to take advantage of LSMOD, it did not work as intended and seem to load all generic Linux modules were still loaded, way beyond the 61 listed in my modepribed.db file.

I forgot to mention but the nvidia-dkms package now works just fine on 5.7.

NVIDIA also has already released a driver that looks to be compatible with the upcoming 5.8 version so hopefully we will be able to transition to 5.8 smoothly without any hiccups.

superboringdev commented on 2020-06-03 23:08

Warning: nvidia-dkms does not seem to work with it – it will not compile and even if you apply patches to it there is a good chance that you won't reach the login screen. Please refrain from using 5.7, try patches or use nouveau until nvidia has published a working driver...

Other dkms modules will probably work. Problems with, for example, vboxhost have been fixed in 5.7.0-2.

@soloturn I have implemented support for it in the linux-nitrous-git package by checking if $HOME/.config/modprobed.db exists. I'm not sure whether the implementation will work that way, I will probably need to change a few more things. Let me know if this is a good way of checking for modprobed-db or whether it would be better to just check for LSMOD.
