@damentz: no, everything else works fine on my hardware, just like 3.1 did. thanks.

this broadcom thing is new to 3.2, some new driver design decision made by kernel devs. looks like in 3.3 things will change again: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1036891#p1036891

@shivik - oops! I'm sorry, but my previous comment turned out to be a false positive. at least regarding nvidia-all, which is supposed to install into the /lib/modules/extramodules-3.2-lqx. The error I'm receiving is "nvidia: disagrees about version of symbol module_layout. Even with intel_iommu=off the error persists. OTOH, now even the nvidia-lqx fails to compile, stating "Unable to determine the target kernel version." (I'm in command line, using links now.) So what gives?

@silvik: well, I can go ahead and change that directly. Is there anything else you noticed missing from the 3.2 kernel? You can also visit the Liquorix forum if you have any other feedback.

looks like lqx config does not enable the new broadcom drivers (brcmsmac) as mainline arch does.

if you have a broadcom wifi (like me) you need to edit the PKGBUILD to enable menuconfig (_menu="m"). in the menuconfig disable BCMA support (in Broadcom specific AMBA section) and enable Broadcom IEEE802.11n PCIe SoftMAC WLAN driver (in Network devices / Wireless LAN)

is it possible to make this small change in the lqx package config? thanks.

@shivik, it compiles and works well. virtualbox module doesn't work due to different issues on my system - however a package nvidia-all compiles and works like a charm (I'm using it rather than your nvidia-lqx due to a number of other kernels I'm testing whenever I can).
So anyway, absolutely positive feedback from me. Kudos!

@Wintershade, there you go: http://netload.in/dateiodASThlZAo/linux-lqx-3.2.1-2_with_extramodules.tar.gz.htm
Compiled and installed fine on my system. So it works for me.
Give it a shot and let me know if it works for you.

For anyone having issues booting with with nvidia driver use amd_iommu=off or intel_iommu=off(depending on your motherboard chipset).
Chances are high that you'll be able to boot to graphical environment.

@Wintershade - I'll work on that.

Wintershade commented on 2012-01-18 19:59

Could you please add support for external modules (i.e. /lib/modules/extramodules-XY)?
Without those, external modules (such as virtualbox driver) won't work...

shivik commented on 2012-01-18 06:35

That's because the package was out of date(a 3.2.1-2 patch was released).
It's updated now so you shouldn't have problems.
