Re: unofficial linux-ck repo with cpu optimized packages is ONLINE

@enihcam - sure
@Army - I was hoping to troubleshoot your working config against the config the repo packages use, but what you posted contains several differences.  I thought you said you used the same config?  I have tested the repo generic and corex packages on half a dozen machines with no ill effects; there has to be something different about your specific system that is causing the freezes.

Re: unofficial linux-ck repo with cpu optimized packages is ONLINE

OK, I'll retry it with the exact same config, looks like I DID change some (in my opinion minor) things... Sorry for that. Give me a few couple of minutes, I'll repost.

edit:
Damn, how is this possible? Now it works again after I reinstalled linux-ck-corex from your repo. I don't understand...
In case it happens again, I really have to get the dmesg output of this failing boot process. What's the best way to get this dmesg output? Booting with a CD, chrooting and executing dmesg? That's how I'd try it. If there's a more elegant way, feel free to tell me!

Re: unofficial linux-ck repo with cpu optimized packages is ONLINE

Glad to hear my packages are no longer suspect wink  To your question... you don't need to chroot, just mount the filesystem and copy the selected logs: kernel.log dmesg.log errors.log would be a good start.

Re: unofficial linux-ck repo with cpu optimized packages is ONLINE

I think there might be a problem with the package. I recently reinstalled the linux-ck packages for my system and I rebooted and got rid of the default (linux, linux-headers and nvidia) packages. That also forced me to remove virtualbox (which is dependent on the kernel) and it's packages. Now when I try to get virtualbox back it wants to install the default kernel. I thought the linux-ck package provided the kernel so that dependencies for virtualbox would be satisfied.

Re: unofficial linux-ck repo with cpu optimized packages is ONLINE

@ringmaster - No problem with my packages... which version of vbox are you running? Wonder removed the dependence of the ARCH kernels.  I have only linux-ck installed and also have virtualbox.

Try this:

pacman -S virtualbox virtualbox-source virtualbox-additions

When it finishes, simply run /usr/bin/vboxbuild to build your modules.

Re: unofficial linux-ck repo with cpu optimized packages is ONLINE

I have the latest version of all the packages. I use the virtualbox modules package and it pulls down the default linux kernel.

why does virtualbox-source not require linux but virtualbox-modules does?

Re: unofficial linux-ck repo with cpu optimized packages is ONLINE

This is sooooo off topic but:

virtualbox-modules = built in ARCH kernel
virtualbox-source = script to generate the modules on ANY kernel

Please no more on this/only post about repo related issues.

Re: unofficial linux-ck repo with cpu optimized packages is ONLINE

After upgrading from 3.1.4 to 3.1.5 i have problems with my Broadcom 4312 using the broadcom-wl-ck-kx package.

wifi isn'tdetected by networkmanager and modprobe wl will result in an error.

# modprobe wl
FATAL: Error inserting wl (/lib/modules/3.1.5-2-ck/extramodules/wl.ko.gz): Invalid argument

I didn't read your original post carefully.  That isn't the expected path.  It should be /lib/modules/extramodules-3.1-ck.  I have no idea why your message is as such.  Try doing:

# depmod -a
# modprobe wl

This didn't help. its still the same error.
btw. /lib/modules/3.1.5-2-ck/extramodules is a symlink to /lib/modules/extramodules-3.1-ck so it shouldn't matter (and the nvidia-ck modul, which is in the same directory, is working)

Re: unofficial linux-ck repo with cpu optimized packages is ONLINE

after removing and compiling/installing broadcom-wl-ck from aur using yaourt, it will work now.

i think you have to recompile this package for this kernel.

p.s.: the latest version in aur is 5.100.82.112-4 so packagemaner wants upgrade it with the one from your repo (5.100.82.112-5).

Re: unofficial linux-ck repo with cpu optimized packages is ONLINE

Rebuilt and modprobes without error on my test machine.  I also sync'ed the pkgvers in the AUR with the repo.  Thanks for the report, xclaude smile

EDIT: xclaude - can you manually remove the version you built from the AUR, and download the kx package from the repo to let me know it works for you system?  I actually have no machine that uses this module for WLAN.

Glad to hear it... shouldn't need to restart, just:

rmmod wl && modprobe wl

Hi graysky , i'm using your repo , and pacman 4 complains for your pgp key missing....where I can find it?

edit:

Re: unofficial linux-ck repo with cpu optimized packages is ONLINE

Hi graysky,

How do you compile your 'optimized' builds? I ask because I want to compile my own kernel with

_localmodcfg="y" 

My CFLAGS are "-march=native -mtune=native ..." but is the kernel config also optimized?

Thanks in advance for an answer.

Re: unofficial linux-ck repo with cpu optimized packages is ONLINE

@radioactive-I wrote a bash script that configures all the .config files.  See my sig for a link to my github to see the code.  Basically, your CFLAGS aren't honored, it's a function of the CPU family you select in the nconfig.

Re: unofficial linux-ck repo with cpu optimized packages is ONLINE

Thanks, found what I want. smile
But are you sure if "CONFIG_X86_INTEL_USERCOPY=y" is needed for an AMD cpu?
It just sounds curious to me but I haven't the knowledge about kernel options like these.
