Hey graysky, I'm having suspend problems with 3.13.6-1-ck on a Dell Inspiron 3520. I've done plenty of googling and so far no good. Any suggestions? I'm on linux-ck-sandybridge, ck-sandybridge-headers, and ck-vbox-host-modules.

Here is a few tips in getting an answer.  Define the "problem(s)".  What behavior is expected?  What is happening?  Post logs or error output.  Cross reference the "problems" against different versions.  So, try without the CK patched kernel and modules, does behavior still exist?  Try downgrading CK patched kernel and modules, does problem exist?

Just saying something like "it doesn't work, please help me solve" makes it really tough to provide suggestions because nobody except you knows what the problem is! tongue  For maximum exposure and help, start a thread in Newbie Corner.  Good luck!

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

In addition to what frank604 has posted above, whenever you are seeing issues with the CK kernel, you should test the regular Arch kernel to see if the problem persists.  Typically, people post issues without doing this and it turns out to simply be a bug in general and not specific to the CK patchset.

I've tried to reproduce the same problem in the -ARCH kernel, and it doesn't (so far, 6 days uptime in -ARCH, only 2 hours in -ck). It's -ck related. Now, to describe the problem, after a couple suspends when booted into the -ck kernel, I have no wifi, I can't suspend again, I can't quit out of Xorg, and the temperature keeps rising...up and up and up...until I do a hard shutdown. So I think it might've frozen. When I get home later, I will bring up logs and even my lsmod output. smile

@elmo - Please report your observations upstream (ck's blog); I am just a packager of his patchset.

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

Hi graysky,
As KVM is broken in current release due to an upstream bug, and because I really needed kvm working, I tried building the kernel using your PKGBUILD from the AUR and ck's patch posted in the comments section of last release.
It wasn't very fun with my aging system (thanks again for the wonderful repo-ck) but does seem to do the trick, and KVM is alive again.
I'm not sure how are things upstream or when will 3.14-ck be available (probably a while...), so would you consider adding this patch for the build process?

Thanks, Adam.

@adam - Is it pf's patch[1] or ck's patch[2] that you have merged and verified that the kvm issue is fixed?

I can add it to the next release, 3.13.8 when that is out.

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

@adam777 - Can you confirm any of the problems users in AUR are reporting with KVM?  Probably best to reply in the AUR rather than here.

Done. Thank for the heads-up.
Patched 3.13.9-1 from the repo still enables KVM to work fine in here.

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

Has anyone reported issues with ath9k or wireless networking in general?

I switched from wired - so I can't say how it was working with previous versions - but on both 3.13.9-1 and 3.13.8-1 doing a scan for wireless network freezes system dead. Doing it at boot time, i receive output such as:

BUG: soft lockup - CPU#3 stuck for 23s! [ksoftirqd/3:24]
BUG: soft lockup - CPU#3 stuck for 22s! [ksoftirqd/3:24]

And the system obviously won't end booting up.

I have Atheros AR9462-based wifi card and this does not happen with vanilla kernel.

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

I have linux-ck-atom and broadcom-wl-ck installed on a Dell 10 Mini from your repository. The wl module won't load at boot. Modprobe gives the error "modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'wl': Exec format error." I've tried forcing the module's load at boot, but it seems the only way to have my wifi work is 'modprobe -f wl'.

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

Odd, that works on core2 but I will rebuild against 3.13.9-1.  To this day, I cannot figure out why someone will have this issue when others do not.  Oh well.  Refresh in 2 min.

EDIT: F*cking godaddy.  I cannot upload the new files now due to some BS issue on their end.  Will try again later.

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

@ummakyness - Not sure what to make of that... I don't have the hardware to support it on my machine, but I don't get any error when I modprobe it... from dmesg just after probing it:

cfg80211: Calling CRDA to update world regulatory domain

It gives this warning/message because the wl module is partially closed source.  So it is just an indicator that having that module linked in makes things no longer "supported" in regard to the kernel.  In other words, it is totally normal.

But if you don't have to use the wl module and your card is supported by one of the other open-source broadcom modules, then you should probably be using that anyway.  I don't think that they quite have full feature parity with wl, but if they do enough for your use case, it is probably preferrable.

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

http://bpaste.net/show/200512/
This was after running 'modprobe -f wl' which is the only way to get my wifi to work.
I tried b43. It would not get the BCM4312 working for some reason.
'lspci -k' shows 'Kernel modules: ssb, wl'. I've never heard of ssb.

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

@ummakynes, I always find this page to be quite helpful in determining which broadcom driver to use.  But that is beyond the scope of this thread i think.  So if you want further help, you should open a new thread.


Edit: Kinda OT, but graysky, have you seen that your GCC patches that you apply to the kernels in this repo have been merged into the PF kernel?  I just stumbled across that just now.
