ArchCK is a derivation of the CK patchset that is taking a similar path to the
old CKO patchset. It aims to include a variety of popular features and updates
that have not currently made it to the vanilla kernel. Con Kolivas' CK patchset
is central to ArchCK. ArchCK also includes a few patches for the Arch LiveCD Archie.
*** This is Con's approved replacement for cko-sources.
ArchCK adds the following to ck's patchset:
# CK Patchset
# acpi updates

Everything runs fine for me.... only problems I had was that the current x11-drm
ebuild wouldn't build against it, so I'm now using the kernel drm. I also had
to remerge vmware to pick up the any-any-update94 patch, which is required for
the 2.6.14 kernels (looks like someone forgot to bump the revision of the vmware
I'm using vesafb-tng only for fb0, but I'm not running fbsplash. I also don't
have any pre-empt stuff enabled.

I had to compile the kernel with no DRM options.. then emerged x11-drm. Everything works fine now.

This fixes the previously posted ebuild by allowing you two actually download the two different sources. I just hacked it together by copying the ck-sources ebuild, but it works.
Thanks again Iphitus.

what doesn't work with my ebuild? I tested it with and without ck-server prior to attaching it. That additional ck code is redundant... we don't need to sed the patch filename twice.
Concerning comment #29 (~1 FPS with 3d and xscreensaver) :
Good news, problem has disappeared in -archck6 :-)
Response to comment #32 :
CONFIG_DRM is always disabled in my kernel config...

I still think it needs this change:
The reason for this is that when you do an ebuild digest with the original it only retrieves and md5's the patch file that your USE flags need. For example if you have USE='-ck-server' it only gets the patch-2.6.15-archck7.bz2 file. Now change your USE flags and try USE='ck-server' emerge archck-sources it will begin unpacking the kernel source and then fail when trying to apply the archcks patch. The difference I see with the other ebuild is that it grabs both the first time you do a digest, so perhaps there is an easy workaround, but it seems easily avoidable.
Here's the output I receive:
sephiroth archck-sources # USE='ck-server' emerge archck-sources
Calculating dependencies ...done!

ack... doesn't make sense to me from a scripting standpoint, but I am by no means adept at ebuilds. I tested your scenario and encountered the same error. I updated mine so all subsequent ebuilds from me will contain it. Thanks for the explanation and example!

See ArchCK website,
This is now deprecated in favour of beyond. Which has the same purposes and intentions.

Lets kernel compile either without Suspend2 enabled
For all archck fans :)
Well, it's my favourite so it should be "unallocated the clean way"... Looking forward to test beyond2 :)
http://iphitus.loudas.com/beyond.html is current link, and current source version is 4.1. I really think this should be committed without any additional source patches and should be named beyond-sources. JM2C. Only caveat is that the beyond patch set requires the base kernel. Works fine for me.

Replacement to arch, tiger, and nitro kernels. Version 4.1 of the beyond patchset. I hacked away at the ebuild and made adjustments I felt would be beneficial. Works for me. Let's see if they will ever commit this branch to the tree.
Created attachment 88605 [details]
some readability improvements and removal of unnecessary code (like detect-version running twice). Also removed some hard coding of versions 2.6.16 and replace with $KV. The K_EXTRAEINFO does not print as expected, but I submitted a patch for the kernel-2.eclass upstream which would allow for better formatting of extra info.
Created attachment 88688 [details]
New naming convention. -r should be reserved for ebuild revisions, not upstream ones. _p[Major][Minor] where Major is required. If minor is not 0, then a .Minor will be appended. Also, user can OPTIONALLY have genpatches-base applied (through the 2400 series only, 2500+ won't work like with the new ck12). Just set USE=gentoo-patches prior to emerge. Default behavior is NOT to use any gentoo patches since it would be very hard to isolate problems with multiple patch sets applied.
Created attachment 88841 [details]
sorry for the bug spam. I omitted the part where -r0 would be removed. No more ebuilds here. Maybe I'll ask to have it put into sunrise. Performance is better with gentoo-patches. Much better. So a consideration would be to have the gentoo-patches be default activity, or just have it used regardless. Not sure yet. MyOp says leave it optional just in case there are conflicts.
Created attachment 88946 [details]
Enhancement: Now includes gentoo-extra patches optionally. Excludes properly set to avoid those which don't patch.
Beyond sources can now be retrieved at http://www.breakmygentoo.net. They will be maintained there from now on.
Sorry, but we aren't going to include experimental patchsets in the tree. The ebuilds can be found in the forums, in the custom-kernels overlay (layman -a custom_kernels), or my dev overlay (layman -a masterdriverz).
