Please, check new release. You have now several variables to enable/disable features.


## Disable NUMA since most users do not have multiple processors. Breaks CUDA/NvEnc.
## Archlinux and Xanmod enable it by default.
## Set variable "use_numa" to: n to disable (possibly increase performance)
##                             y to enable  (stock default)
if [ -z ${use_numa+x} ]; then

## For performance you can disable FUNCTION_TRACER/GRAPH_TRACER. Limits debugging and analyzing of the kernel.
## Stock Archlinux and Xanmod have this enabled. 
## Set variable "use_tracers" to: n to disable (possibly increase performance)
##                                y to enable  (stock default)
if [ -z ${use_tracers+x} ]; then

## Enable Cachy CPU scheduler by default
## Set variable "use_cachy" to: n to disable (stock Xanmod)
##                              y to enable
if [ -z ${use_cachy+x} ]; then

## Set variable "use_ns" to: n to disable (stock Xanmod)
##                           y to enable (stock Archlinux)
if [ -z ${use_ns+x} ]; then

Personally I'm running now xanmod kernel compiled with this:

env use_tracers=n use_numa=n use_cachy=y use_ns=y makepkg -si

Also, you can now put a file in your local repo to build this package with a custom config. You have to call this file myconfig.


  # Put the file "myconfig" at the package folder to use this feature
  if [ -f "${startdir}/myconfig" ]; then
    msg2 "Using user CUSTOM config..."
    cp -f "${startdir}"/myconfig .config

My build crashes.

The last couple lines are

patching file tools/testing/selftests/x86/test_vsyscall.c
patching file usr/Kconfig
patching file usr/Makefile
patching file virt/kvm/kvm_main.c
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare().

@mabod PDS is not merged to XanMod as far as I know. I will replace this setting by Cachy (CONFIG_CACHY_SCHED):

Edit: Cachy done.

I can not get PDS scheduler to be included.

I create the package with :

use_pds=y makepkg -f

it shows the output:

-> Enabling PDS CPU scheduler by default...

But the .config does not contain the CONFIG_SCHED_PDS option

28# grep PDS config.last

@Sourav you can compile this package using "env use_ns=y makepkg" or "env use_ns=no makepkg". See PKGBUILD for more information

By default "CONFIG_USER_NS_UNPRIVILEGED" is disabled in this kernel. So Nautilus's thumbnailer won't work with bubblewrap. Follow here:

@IsNoGood you have to import GPG key to verify the sources. Open a shell with the build user, and import it, for example:

$ gpg --keyserver hkp:// --recv-keys 38DBBDC86092693E

@rdslw done 7d26f7d99bc6

rdslw commented on 2020-09-04 16:56

yeah @figue, "5.8.5-xanmod1-1" would be perfect.

I'm not sure how PKGBASE being for now "linux-xanmod" during prep phase, later translates in adding just 'xanmod' inside of "5.8.5-xanmod1-xanmod-1", but if this change results in 5.8.5-xanmod1-1 I think would be perfect :)

figue commented on 2020-08-31 21:48

@rdslw I don't consider that an "issue". But if you find how remove the last "xanmod", I will apply the "fix" ;)

Edit: Something like this?
