Selecting the correct CPU optimized package
If a model specific kernel is not offered, users should select one of the three generic packages that is best matched to the specific hardware. To tell which generic package is best, simply run:
$ /lib/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 --help | grep supported
x86-64-v3 (supported, searched) is in the output, use the ck-generic-v3 group. If only
x86-64-v2 (supported, searched) is in the output, use the ck-generic-v2 group. If neither are in the output, use the ck-generic group.
Those wanting CPU-specific optimized packages can run the following command (assuming thatis installed):
$ gcc -c -Q -march=native --help=target | grep march
-march is what GCC would use natively. Refer to the table above for a mapping of this value to the correct group; again, not every possible value will have a specific group.

Add the repository to
/etc/pacman.conf under the Arch official repositories:
[repo-ck] Server = http://repo-ck.com/$arch
Sign graysky's key:
# pacman-key -r 5EE46C4C --keyserver hkp://pgp.mit.edu && pacman-key --lsign-key 5EE46C4C
aviallon hosts a mirror with better bandwidth and stability, synchronized every 6 hours. You can add it to your
[repo-ck] Server = https://mirror.lesviallon.fr/$repo/os/$arch Server = http://repo-ck.com/$arch
Update your sync database and install the chosen kernel variant (see above for available variants):
# pacman -Syu linux-ck
Update boot loader configuration
If you are using GRUB with a common setup, then you can update its configuration by regenerating the main configuration file.
Please use the BBS thread.
Downloads interrupt regularly
Graysky is using Go Daddy as his web host. Some of the transfers from their poorly implemented server end in an incomplete transfer. To combat this, list the repository address multiple times and pacman will automatically try the next available server.
