GCC11.1 is mainlined in arch, so this means znver3 support can kick off on this kernel. The gentoo patches have been updated too.

This kernel now natively supports the znver3 arch, but this kernel will most likely keep working on all AMD ryzen hardware. It's better to be able to address certain small perks or issues per architecture now and in the future.

If you use znver2 based hardware, please use linux-amd-znver2
If you use raven based hardware, please use linux-amd-raven

Tired of compiling? Use this binary repo instead! Add this at the end of /etc/pacman.conf :

[linuxkernels]
Server = http://nhameh.ovh/$repo/$arch
SigLevel = Optional TrustAll

Why does this depend on mkinitcpio. dracut is available, too.

Ok, thanks for letting me know. From the description:

Linux kernel aimed at the latest AMD Ryzen CPU based hardware

I thought this was meant to be compatible with the standard Arch Linux kernel, it does not mention that it disables certain core features. You probably should update the description to make people aware that this is not a drop-in replacement for core/linux as features are removed.

This kernel is performance oriented, encryption is not part of that.

If your priority is to be more compatible with the upstream kernel, and avoid any "disparities", I suggest you install the upstream kernel :-)

Thanks for creating thie PKGBUILD.

I am having an issue logging in when using this kernel, but both core/linux and extra/linux-zen kernel work fine. My user is managed by systemd-homed and it appears that the issue is with access to the .homedir file. Logging in as root still works fine. I have no idea though why permissions on the linux-amd kernel would be any different. Does anyone have an idea?

I'm thinking it might be something with fscrypt not being supported in the same way?

Actually, looking at the linux-amd config, it appears that fscrypt is disbled as the CONFIG_FS_ENCRYPTION is not set. I'm also noticing that the PKGBUILD has quite a few disparities from the upstream linux PKGBUILD (for example, it still is using a .install file even though I believe these are all handled by pacman hooks now).

Please see the warning here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Kernel/Arch_Build_System#Modifying_the_PKGBUILD

I have added 'COMPRESSION="lzop"' in the mkinitcpio preset of this kernel. I find this balanced compression for the ramdisk alot faster for installing, and booting from it. Please check your preset file in /etc/mkinitcpio.d/ to make sure that this change is adopted (as there is probably a pacsave file created there instead). Also make sure you have lzop installed.

I am going to be honest with you: I have no idea. I do not have all the hardware lying around. Mostly if vanilla kernels work so should mine. I don't do anything too radical on this kernel.

I just bought a new Dell G5 SE Ryzen 9 4900hs chip with Radeon 5600 gpu. Just wondering if this Kernel is compatible?

Well Im looking to keep this package for ZEN2 now for the time being. If ZEN3 comes out this package will become ZEN3 oriented, since this is supposed to target the newest amd hardware, but ill fork this package into a linux-amd-zen2 or something.

PS if you really want a ZEN1 pkg with the current linux version, you can always checkout "linux-raven-latest" on my repo. Its a hidden package I use for some of my machines that have ZEN1 -- But other than tat Im not really looking to maintain for zen1 hardware.

Maybe not useful for you, but just putting it out there.
