@clfarron - You can try it.  Worst thing that will happen is it won't boot.  For reference, my ivy i7-3770k reports:

  -march=                     		corei7-avx

I would if I had one (at least, I'm sure I don't think I have one of these processors...) I'll point them to this thread and let them join in.

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

@clfarron4, try this

$ gcc -march=native -E -v - </dev/null 2>&1 | grep cc1

It will tell you exactly what will be included when you go with -march=native.

I found it in the gentoo wiki… you know those gentoo folk and their compiler flags!

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

Hi graysky,

I'm one of those from G+ that @clfarron mentioned.
The gcc command returns a Sandy-bridge processor when I have an Ivy-bridge one (i7-3517u).

Could be a gcc bug?  Recommend you report it upstream: http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/

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

Hello all,
Yesterday I decided to try linux-ck and repo-ck seems like the most convenient choice.
I added the repo to pacman.conf and had no problem installing linux-ck-core2-3.11.1-1 and linux-ck-core2-headers-3.11.1-1 and everything was running just fine
Today, I see that an updated version 3.11.1-2 is available for both packages when viewing the repo via browser.
For some reason, pacman will not see the update and keep insisting that 3.11.1-1 is the latest version.
Am I doing something wrong or some repo db magic had to be done on the repo side to make the update available for automatic updating (i.e. not downloading and installing via -U).
Thanks, Adam.

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

@adam777 - You've not doing anything wrong.  I compile a total of 28 kernel packages between x86_64 and i686 and all the CPU types.  I do this with a little bash wrapper script that uploads as it goes.  I do not reindex the repo until all 28 are built.  You just happened to browse the web listing while the build script was running and publishing the packages.  Quite harmless really.  If you refresh `pacman -Syu` now, you will see that the index has been generated and packages ready to ship.

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

If anyone has experienced an issue with linux-ck and their ability to wake up from suspend, please try 3.11.2-2 either from the AUR or the repo.  Based on some comments on ck's blog, the tick rate is now defaulted to 1k which is reported to fix the suspend issues.[1]

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

With linux-ck compiled with CONFIG_HZ_1000 solves issue with suspend for me and few other people on ck blog.
You can obtain new revision of linux-ck from graysky repo-ck or from AUR which is linux-ck-* 3.11.1-2

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

Does GCC 4.8.1 (the current stable version in the repo) know how to correctly identify haswell chips? 

The wiki says when I run:

gcc -c -Q -march=native --help=target | grep march

I should get core-avx2

But I get:

-march=corei7-avx

Is this something that should work whenever GCC 4.9 is released?

Good news is that my compile script doesn't care about auto detect; CFLAGS are hardcoded so just select the correct package for installation and you're fine.

      # set march according to pkgname

      case $pkgarch in
        atom) march=atom

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

I updated from 3.11.1-2 to 3.11.2-3 yesterday, and today my wireless was non-functional.

I first noted that my interface had been renamed from wlp3s0 to wls1 with the new kernel being the only updated package during the change.  I resent my network tool to use that interface name figuring I'd investigate the change once I could get online, but the wls1 was non functional (I didn't have time to dig deeper into why, sorry).

I double checked pacman logs, and the ck kernel was my only update yesterday, and a downgrade back to 3.11.1-2 and a reboot fixed this: wlp3s0 was back.

I'm at work now, so I don't have time yet to dig deeper, but I thought I'd put this out there for now.

My wireless:

03:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 5100 AGN [Shiloh] Network Connection [8086:4237]

EDIT: I hand't bothered to boot the stock kernel to check, but it seems this is not a -ck issue, but likely a wider issue: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=170501

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

@tumas - Please try:

# pacman -Syyu

For me, two test machines used the current nvidia drivers, but one user reported in the AUR that his/her box could not so I rebuilt.  New packages are online now.

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

I recently (today) started using the md5sum of /usr/lib/modules/$pkgver-$pkgrel-ck/modules.symbols as a switch indicating if a rebuilt of the modules is required.  I believe this is what tpowa does to decide if the like condition is present on a build of the official packages (why else annotate it in the PKGBUILD) so these situations should not happen in the future.

Not on your side. It's server side. So we'll have to wait I guess. I don't know if the packages in AUR work or not either. I prefer using the repo. =\
