Kernels and GCC8

gcc8

#1

Hi Team,

it seems new kernels are not expected soon, based on the stable queue log. Since we have now gcc8 in unstable a rebuild of all kernels is needed against this gcc version.

For me, I see no rush. Only DKMS is currently “broken”, as extramodules should be compiled with the same gcc version as the kernel was compiled with. Also my work-trip to Timișoara will happen next week (CW20), so expect no updates from my end.

Maybe @jonathon gets bonkers with his new Ryzen CPU or put the build-server for a spin. Either way, we should first test the new toolchain update and decide without a rush pushing it to testing or stable. Having a small break of package updates should be possible. - Thoughts?


#2

I can rebuild and put things in xperimental or a separate repo?


#3

Currently we have no xperimental repo. unstable branch would be enough. linux417 I might build in the upcoming days. Only in CW20 I might not do anything for Manjaro. So there is no rush yet in doing anything. However, when doing a kernel rebuild, also all extramodules need a bump.


#4

Currently I’m building v49, v414, v416 and v417 against the new gcc8 series.


#5

Only few kernels are still missing. Bernhard already worked on his real-time kernels. I’m currently doing v415 series and will see what needs to be done for v316, v318, v41 and v44.


#6

Could we drop that to save some effort as it’s EOL anyway?


#7

v318 and v44 are now also online. I finished also v316 and v41. This finalizes our effort on gcc8 rebuilds.


#8

All kernels are recompiled against the new GCC version. Moved to testing branch now.
