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 ${_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 ${_tracers+x} ]; then
## Enable PDS CPU scheduler by default
## Set variable "use_pds" to: n to disable (stock Xanmod)
##                            y to enable
if [ -z ${_pds+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_pds=y use_ns=y makepkg -s

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

@QDesjardin you are right. I updated my script to choose microarchitecture because I saw that the upstream project added more options. But I forgot the help message ;) I'll update PKGBUILD without pushing a new release.

QDesjardin commented on 2018-08-16 22:58

Just a minor note, you should update the PKGBUILD, the part where it says "Look inside '' to choose your microarchitecture" and it tells you 0 to 22.

It's actually 0 to 25 now, they added in some options for AMD and Intel.
