Can I use the manjaro kernel build github actions?

As the title says, I want to build linux 6.4-rc1 from, using your kernel build action on

But I don’t know if it does any change on your repositories or on any of your servers.

How to use the actions to build any kernel from

see this

or this


You could switch to the testing (or unstable) branch where 6.4.0rc1 is available to install via the repository.

how to do that for a single package (switching branches)?

That wouldn’t be recommended. I suggested switching branches as you want access to newer packages than the stable branch currently has. I switched to the testing branch over a year ago and have had no issues in that time.

okay… but I do not want to…

But this does not answer my question. Sorry, if appear rude…

Switch branch - sync one package - switch back - willcreate a frankensystem - which may or may not work when you full steam ahead.

Technically your system is out of sync with the registered branch which may or may not create other issues - thus unsupported and not recommended.

But as you are the sysadmin on the system - you have only yourself to blame - as you threw in a :black_joker:


But my question is not answered…

What is the question you haven’t got an answer to?

I have no idea what you are talking about.

You cannot change Manjaro repo by using the github actions - that is what secrets are for.

Like any opensource project you need to clone and setup for yourself.

How you do that - you would have to read up on github actions - how they are configured and activated.

I was asking to compile rc kernel from using the kernel-action github action from manjaro-kernels github repo. but I do not know if it causes any change on your side. That’s the question I am asking that can I use the github action?

Edit: removed a mistake

It is opensource - and as I said - clone - and build all that you need …

You cannot change Manjaro repo by using the build action …

what if it causes any change or causes something on the manjaro repos or on their side??

ps: sorry for my english

I am going to repeat one last time


Thank you

Not understand why use github action instead of build locally?

And as @linux-aarhus say you can only clone our repository but then is only a skeleton. For use it you need to setup it

I understand

XY Problem detected. You’re asking about your attempted solution rather than your actual problem. This leads to enormous amounts of wasted time and energy, both on the part of people asking for help, and on the part of those providing help.

You don’t need to build 6.4-rc1 yourself if you want to test it. All you have to do is switch to the unstable branch and install it.

By the way, you can use our GitHub CI to build it yourself. You just have to fork it and run it yourself.
