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 OT/ RTX4000 user here , but big thanks for your constant effort !!! :-) Happy holidays to both of you that help us to use this kernel ;-) /OT

I have the patch & package prepped for 5.10.2 - waiting for it to come out of testing. There were significant changes to i915 in 5.10 - is anyone running 5.10.x already, on i915, and willing to test the linux-vfio package before 5.10 hits core?

5.9.11 has fixed the IOMMU groups problem for me, but I have had to include a patch to deal with an AMD reset bug.

peterh commented on 2020-12-04 07:11

5.9.11 fixed the problem also for me. Thanks.

spamad commented on 2020-12-02 19:17

I was having the same issue as peterh where the IOMMU grouping stopped working at 5.9.1 (I7-3770, Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H). After compiling 5.9.11, the issue is now resolved.

An easy way to import the required gpg keys, if anyone is having problems with it as I was.

curl https://keybase.io/heftig/pgp_keys.asc | gpg --import

markzz commented on 2020-10-27 04:48

I can confirm there's an issue with it. I cannot get to investigating until this weekend though.

peterh commented on 2020-10-22 18:12

The IOMMU groups on my system (Z77, I7-3770) are broken if I'm using version linux-vfio 5.9.1.arch1-1. Any idea ?

slowbro commented on 2020-10-18 22:22

5.9.1 is up now, but note that nvidia is only partially supported on 5.9.x; nvidia expects to have an update ready in november. this seems to only affect cuda and opencl.

https://forums.developer.nvidia.com/t/nvidia-driver-not-yet-supported-for-linux-kernel-5-9/157263

there are supposedly some patches available that workaround this issue; you'll need to find/apply those yourself if you need cuda/opencl on 5.9.x.

slowbro commented on 2020-09-30 18:47

Do you have any custom gpg configs or are you perhaps using an alternative keyring? I also am not able to reproduce the problem. Make sure your GPG keyring has all the listed signatures from your first post...
