(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].

Thanks, markzz. I just published a better version of 5.5.5 now, with updated kernel config - so if you already installed 5.5.5.arch1-1 from below, be sure to update to 5.5.5.arch1-2 from aur. Same kernel, just matches the 'linux' package's config.

I'll keep my eye out for upstream updates and try to get them released ASAP.

I have just added slowbro as a co-maintainer to assist me in keeping this up to date when I get into busy seasons like I have been trying to crawl out of. Sorry about the lack of updates and hopefully the two of us can keep this up to date more effectively than I can alone.

Patches applied as-is for 5.5.5; untested..

@slowbro I used your patches to update linux-zen-vfio :thumbsup:

Here's the two latest versions. 5.5.4 seems to work just as well as 5.5.3.



@glostark happy to help.

TNKS slowbro for the instructions. It worked as you stated. ;-) The kernel boot fine and my VM for work is finally on again.

Okay, the sha256sums are fixed:

I just git push --force'd because I am a bad person.

BTW: 5.5.4.arch1 built successfully, I'm testing a full makepkg now.

Ah, whoops.. I had reorganized the patches to make the diffs smaller and forgot to re-hash. I'll fix that asap, but in the mean time you can update the sha256sum lines in the PKGBUILD. Just run 'sha256sum *.patch' to get the new ones. The sum array has the hashes in the same order as the sources array.

Thanks for you time and work... :-)

I receive this : ==> Validating source files with sha256sums... archlinux-linux ... Skipped config ... Passed add-acs-overrides.patch ... FAILED i915-vga-arbiter.patch ... FAILED ==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

Tried to delete the files and re-download , happen the same.

Alright, everything seems to be working on 5.5.3.arch1. I had switched to .3 because I noticed yesterday .4 was still in -testing.. but now .4 is out. This should just work with 5.5.4, you'll just need to change the PKGBUILD pkgver line. The patches apply cleanly. I'm compiling it now for 5.5.4 and will report back with results.

For now, enjoy 5.5.3.arch1:

(Note: I make no guarantees, minimally tested,etc. My IOMMU groups are identical with this as they were with 5.3.7-arch1. I was able to boot my windows VM and it worked.)
