#1

The realtime patch for linux416 was released on May 3.
Like this we now again have a newer rt-kernel than the latest LTS available, meaning we will now offer two different realtime-kernels again:
linux416-rt is the new linux-rt-manjaro, while
linux414-rt will remain linux-rt-lts-manjaro.

The config currently used for linux416-rt is here.
Feel free to suggest any rt-specific adjustments. We can discuss them here.
The rest of the config follows Manjaro mainline kernel 416.

With linux416 basekernel I was now able to apply our aufs4/tmpfs/vfs patches, too, which linux414-rt and the earlier ones didn’t like.
Also I was able to compile almost all of our usual extramodules (except ndiswrapper and rt3562sta).

I don’t have any real-life test scenarios for the rt-kernels myself, so I am always happy for your feedback if you do! :wink:

[ The new linux416-rt-4.16.7_rt1-2 aswell as the updated LTS-kernel linux414-rt-4.14.39_rt29-1 are currently on our testing branch. ]

this fixed the bluetooth bug?? thanks


#3

Uhm. I have no idea… Which bluetooth bug exactly? :wink:


#4

this one my friend. [Atheros AR3012] Bluetooth: hci0: don't support firmware rome 0x31010000

The bluetooth stop working after kernel minor update.


#5

I see.
We have this patch in our mainline linux416 kernel and I have inherited it for the 416-rt:
Revert-Bluetooth-btusb-Fix-quirk-for-Atheros-1525-QCA6174.patch

I don’t know the story behind this… why or what exactly we are reverting here @philm ?
In any case I don’t have the right hardware to test but maybe you would like to find out for us if your issue has been fixed?


#6

so in order to try i can install the RT 4.16 Kernel?


#7

Yes. That’s what I meant. It currently on the testing branch.
Does you bluetooth work with regular Manjaro linux416 kernel?


#8

nope my friend. Bluetooth does not work with current 4.14.36-1 / 4.16.4-1 not even with current 4.9.96-1 or 4.4.129-1. BUT it works flawless with 4.1.51-1 which i am using right now. and the Bluetooth hardware is:
Bus 002 Device 008: ID 0cf3:3004 Qualcomm Atheros Communications AR3012 Bluetooth 4.0
extracted from lsusb command. :smile:


#9

@FabricioLujano It seems that is fixed with recent updates. It is working for me now on LTS (4.9.98 - 1 and 4.14.39 - 1 both are in testing)and was working for me on linux416 4.16.6-2. Please find some discussion here https://forum.manjaro.org/t/issues-with-bluetooth-hci0-dont-support-firmware-rome/45227/5


#10

#11
