That's another good point.
But we'll need a couple of other skilled users to help. I mean, sim can do all that but it will take him a lot of time and he'll need to have the appropriate hardware to test.

Ah!! Looks like I just struck gold when I mentioned LTS 3.4.
Just read this http://alphaos.tuxfamily.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=68#p68

That wiki today would have made a biiiiig difference.
Simargl, do you still have the wiki posts or did you simply erase it?
Do you think you could post again how to build alphaos from the ground up and how to compile and add it's kernel?

independently of what maintainer or experts will do with AUR, a guide for kernel recompile would be useful, all needed kernel parameters should be specified and all steps needed for initrd construction also, i do not know if alphaOS has some specific architecture to follow.
Someone could start here, viewtopic.php?f=14&t=1099
but lets say we need to downgrade to 3.12 or patch current kernel only, can this be documented?

Wait a minute! You mean that sim re-published the instructions on how to build alphaos from scratch! :o
I hadn't noticed that. That's more than halfway through to make alpha a free&open OS again.
Sim, don't you think this deserves a wiki? :D

I might sometime build alphaOS form source with a working kernel and an nvidia driver for my needs, its a very flexible tiny OS.
I think this discussion should be moved here: Building alphaOS from source
viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1097

or open a new topic like: kernel recompile, multiple kernels in AUR or something, referencing this discussion
I am not an expert so I cannot contribute further

thanks for mentioning, I know, I ve tried them both. I am using fatdog64, it is very fast and stable. But, 1. it is not arch, b. has an old glibc version that prevents many programs from running. Next major version will probably fix the glibc drawback. Do not try to update glibc in fatdog64, it will break your system.

ACPI: Revert "ACPI / AC: convert ACPI ac driver to platform bus"

it seems that this dangerus bug has been fixed in 3.14.6, 3.15.rc6, but the correct resume from sleep not yet

tested
fatdog64 700 alpha1 with kernel 3.15.5
slacko64 5.9.1 with kernel 3.12.22
both kernels work very well, fan seems to follow cpu temps correctly
it seems that this bug affects many hp laptops and some mac books among others
