(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].

Just wanted to comment to thank ironicbadger and also confirm their findings I was having issues in particular with discord and FF14(FFXIV) crashing and losing sound randomly rolling back to 4.19-20 via LTS package appears to have fixed these issues.

I was running into some issues with 5.2.1 kernel today in a Windows 10 guest where 3d apps (such as Firefox, Chrome and Fusion 360) would just randomly quit.

According to my research I found the following on the VFIO discord

A new bug in kernel 5.2 is causing KMODE_EXPECTION_NOT_HANDLED and other anomalies for some people. A few folks reporting artifacting/crashing issues on 5.1 say that issue persists on 5.2 as well, but this is may be a different bug. Root cause of both issues remains unknown currently. Rollback to the last known good or LTS kernels.

I downgraded to 4.19.x via the linux-vfio-lts package and stability returned to my guest. Hope this helps someone out.

If this is a requirement for you, you will need to add this patch yourself when you build.

Any chance to add the Agesa Patch?

I am getting the following build error:

 Extension error:
Could not import extension kerneldoc (exception: cannot import name 
'AutodocReporter' from 'sphinx.ext.autodoc' (/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/sphinx/ext/autodoc/

As the same here:

Following those patch instructions I deleted some lines in the PKGBUILD and I'm now compiling.

PiMaker101: One of the goals of this package is to model it after the standard linux package in the official repositories. This includes configuration options. This does not, however, stop you from changing the config yourself when you build it though.

Tested with 5.0.9 by changing the git tag in the PKGBUILD, working fine, including testing with QEMU 4.0. Noteworthy though, that I had to disable building the doc package (removed htmldocs from make), since there was a build error with sphinx.

By the way, I think it might be a good idea to change the default kernel config in this package to enable voluntary preemption (CONFIG_PREEMPT_VOLUNTARY=y), since this fixes a bug with QEMU/OMVF boot times when configured with a lot of RAM/cores (see Personally using this configuration, have not noticed any side-effects or performance losses on the host so far.

Just wanted to say that In regards to jmandawg and markzz that I have been updating by just changing the versions for about a week now (starting with 5.0-1) with no unexpected behaviour or side effects. Although I should state I haven't done any deep testing outside of just running my normal vms etc.

markzz commented on 2019-03-24 04:26

jmandawg: You can certainly try just changing the PKGBUILD with no new patches, but I would bet on the fact that the current patches will not work. The issue is, it's on my list of things I have to get done, but that list has grown in the last few months to the point where I'm trying to catch up. No ETA at this moment.

EDIT: I take it all back, it looks like the patches did apply, so I'm running a build and will quickly test it tomorrow.

jmandawg commented on 2019-03-24 02:46

Thanks for the great work, 5.0.x coming anytime soon? Or is it safe to change the _srcver and rebuild?
