- There does exist one kernel patch in fbsplash. But I agree with you that both Fbsplash and Reiser4 link could be removed. When people needed the feature, they will find the patch from related pages, not from this page.--Fengchao (talk) 13:13, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
More info about ZEN kernel?
I believe we need a better explanation about what linux-zen does and how it differs from mainstream linux kernel. GitHub link in this article is not informative at all. Can we have a list of features with description? NeoTheFox (talk) 09:45, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
- This should be described upstream. See also . -- Lahwaacz (talk) 09:57, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
- Good point. Some are via Unofficial user repositories, e.g. the popular linux-ck (Repo-ck). The section should be renamed to Kernels#Available packages, with a note added to the AUR subsection linking to the Unofficial user repositories. --Indigo (talk) 16:19, 2 April 2016 (UTC)
- Yes, that's another interpretation (a little more in the Gentoo sense though). Added , should suffice rather than renaming. How about also adding a note to the section that only binary repos for AUR kernels which the package maintainer(s) provide/sign should be explicitly crosslinked in that section? --Indigo (talk) 12:22, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
Clearify the Traditional Compilation section
In the second section of Compilation, the text mentions
- This involves manually downloading a source tarball, and compiling in your home directory as a normal user. Once configured, two installation methods are available; the traditional manual method, or with Makepkg + Pacman.
After downloading the kernel tarball and finishing compiling it, I doubt anyone would then apply the Makepkg + Pacman method. If he or she wants the custom built kernel to be managed by pacman, he/she would have already gone through another route, that is, ABS.
