Arch Linux did some benchmarks, but we already provide generic-v3 repo.
You will get 10-30% performance uplift
The geometric mean of test results was around 15% higher on march=haswell then
on baseline x86_64. Apart from john-the-ripper/md5, the tests were up to 36%
faster, with a median performance increase of around 10%.
Good shit guys! I’ve always loved what you guys are doing with optimisation from the kernel to the packages. I used to use your guys repo on my system ages ago but had problems with some programs not opening like dolphin. Don’t seem to have any issues anymore which is perfect. Only had to delete the baloo directory but other than that no issues. I enjoy cachyos with its performance and optimisation but I miss too many features I enjoy on Garuda. So with bore kernel compiled myself and this repo it is really close to a merge of awesome Garuda software and performance improvements and optimisations of Cachyos. After updating my system there was almost 6gb worth to update including some base packages with the optimisations added from cachyos repos and after a reboot it really feels so much faster. Programs open faster and feel faster and even basic things like web pages and playing videos feel faster. So thanks for the hard work I appreciate it very much!
It might be an essential hint to comment out the regular (non v3) cachyos repo that gets added by using the script provided. Most packages are already available in Chaotic-AUR and get rebuilt more often.
Is it essentially identical but just split into the normal core extra and community repos with anything in the official arch repos rebuilt with these optimisations? Sounds interesting regardless. Might give it a go although cachyos repos are amazing themselves
I'm trying to install the kernel and I get execv: No such file or directory when running sudo pacman -S linux-cachyos linux-cachyos-headers. The initcpios are never created and thus the kernel cannot be loaded. Any ideas what might be going wrong?
