(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 thought I'd add this in here For those looking to compile for

Change pkgver in PKGBUILD

Replace add-acs-override.patch with updated one listed in a previous comment

Modify i915-vga-arbiter.patch as follows:

  • For last diff, change all instances of intel_drv.h to display/intel_display.h

  • Change 1457 to 432 (line numbers beneath above)

Finally update sha256 as needed in PKGBUILD

So if anyone needs a newer patch it's here

They are makedepends as well, you can remove them after building.

It was a mce Hardware Error. I have since installed rasdaemon and updated the intel microcode to the latest(0xae). 5.3.7.arch1-1 has been running smoothly for the past 18 hours.

jklc: I cannot confirm this issue. The kernel appears to be working fine on my machine. The only difference I can think of is I do not use an Intel iGPU on the host.

Tried 5.3.7.arch1-1 on a Z390/9700k today with the lated -Syu pull. KVM/qemu Windows 10 guest with NVidia 2080Ti passthrough is running with some glitch and crashed the arch host within 60 minutes. Still investigating the cause. The last stable working version of linux-vfio for me has been 5.0.13-arch1-1 (f483bc1a95dc)

I will not update this package until I have made the necessary modifications to all patches.

ShayBox commented on 2019-09-21 04:02

Looks like the i915 vga patch is broken 5.3+, gonna have to be removed until someone produces a new modified patch to patch the patch

markzz commented on 2019-09-08 03:00

dszryan: put that in your makepkg.conf....................
