Changing this from a help, to a informational.

After installing this kernel and headers I could boot but lightdm and even SDDM would not start. What I found was an error in Xorg.0.log about no module found for my NVIDIA driver. I am on Antergos so I just re-installed all my drivers, which alone did not help. I reinstalled the NVIDIA DKMS

sudo pacman -S nvidia-dkms

This will vary based on how you installed your drivers.

I see, thanks for the info.
The tricky part seems to be the recompilation of the custom kernel to change configs (in order to enhance gaming experience)
Hopefully i will manager to build the kernel of my need from your git source

You can disable the patch if you want by commenting out the appropriate patch line in the prepare() function of the PKGBUILD file, but it's not really necessary. The patch does nothing unless you provide the required kernel command line arg.

If you want to use the patches on another kernel, that is also pretty simple. Compare this PKGBUILD to the main Arch "linux" package and you'll see that I had to make very minimal changes. Mainly, you need to add the patches to the source array, the patch checksums to the sha256sums array, and then actually apply the patches by calling the patch command from the prepare function. You might also want to change the "pkgbase" variable at the top so you can install both kernels at the same time.

Hi, since i don't need the i915 patch (using ovmf) can i remove it through the pkgbuild or something?
Also, is it possible to use an already customed kernel for this?
I'm looking for ck kernel optimized for my cpu : https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Repo-ck

retested today and all works fine again

Have you tried 4.4-4? If you still have problems, try the plain arch 4.4-4 from the testing repo. If the problem still exists there, file a bug against the main arch package.

After updating to 4.4-3 it no longer detects my nvme ssd during boot

zman0900 commented on 2016-01-20 03:18

Updated with the 2 patches for arch testing 4.4-4 plus a patch to fix CVE-2016-0728.

Just so that there's at least one other person showing good signs, this version (4.4-3) works beautifully with my setup. Without the hugepages and with an Nvidia card. It works so well that I put the package on my repo.

zman0900 commented on 2016-01-17 02:01

I am only running 8 GB of guest memory with the remaining 24 GB for the host, but I am using 1 GB hugepages. I also have only 4 cores / 8 threads (of 6/12) used by the guest. Not sure if it makes a difference for what we're talking about, but I have the cpu pinning set up so each vcpu is pinned to a different host thread and the emulator is pinned to the remaining 4 host threads. AMD gpu too, so maybe things would be different with nvidia.
