Is it possible to consider adding NFS support to the kernel please? I use NFS on my Linux boxes over CIFS and it would be great to have the option. I've been trying to find a kernel which includes it but without success, yet there are lots of people asking the same questions as me. It may be a technical problem preventing inclusion, but I have no idea. Thank you.

Hi there. I have now given this a go and I love the ROM. Unfortunately I seem to have an issue with sound as I have now lost all sound (calls, music, youtube, tones, alarm etc) and cannot get it back. I am on a GT-I9505 in the UK using the 24/05 build and have not made any system changes, this happens from install. I have done a clean install with all partitions reformatted as F2FS and wiped each time.

I did have to flash a new modem and LTE modem as I was still on the original 2013 baseband for UK H3G and it stopped working past a certain point in Kitkat. However, I have tried various modems now from the original to the latest and still no sound.

I noted some others had similar issues reported for Nexus devices on 5.0 and 5.1 but their fixes (rebooting while not charging, wiping cache, unlinking notification volume from phone volume, lots of rebooting) have failed to work for me.

Does anyone else have any similar issue or idea how to fix please?

+Khy Perryman​, shall we distribute some?
 
A great parody of the Jack Chick religious tracts, you've probably been handed one by a street preacher or found one somewhere https://www.chick.com/ .  Any chance someone in this group has the skills to cut this up and set up two pdfs so it could be printed double sided,  creating something that's ready to cut apart and assemble as an actual little comic? (I have some original Chicks at home and can provide measurements later if needed) I just don't know where to begin to get everything to line up and be in the right order. I'd love to be able to leave this around town! (note the last wide panel at the bottom would normally be a single page at the end, but however it could be worked out it would be fun to distribute!)

Really enjoying your videos. Sadly it's getting me excited for Kerbal but I don't seem to have enough machine power to run it. I'm using an antique 2007 Core 2 Quad and a 2011 Geforce 560Ti. They're old but still manage to run some relatively modern games, but Kerbal is appallingly slow and lag ridden even as pure stock. I assume there's just a lot going on in the simulation and it's too much for my rig. Really need an upgrade!

+James Duffy Awesome that's great news best game I have even when playing other games I always come back to this game. Never completed career I'm more of a sandbox player as that was all we had back in the alpha days.

Hi there. Really enjoying the ROM, working perfectly. I have a vital need to be able to mount some NFS shares though and I don't believe the relevant module is present in the kernel.

I am considering compiling the kernel to add NFS support. Is it OK to use your kernel source to do this please and is there anything I need to be aware of beforehand? It'll be the first time I've done this for Android but I have plenty of backups and I don't mind a bit of learning through breakage.

+Khy Perryman​ Check this, could be a major back end change if they do decide to go from Windows XP to Linux.

I'm using SlimKat build 7.0 jfltexx on the i9505. It's been working fine up till the last week when for some reason it keeps randomly losing root. I have to go back to recovery and forcibly reroot it to get it back. It'll work for a bit then randomly lose it again within 24 hours. SuperSU hasn't received any updates and I don't know why it keeps happening. Has anyone else had a similar issue please?

Has anyone had any recent issues with gaming on Arch? I have an Nvidia 560 using the most current proprietary drivers. I use KDE as my DE.

My Steam install and my approx 200 native Linux games have been working mostly perfectly for the last year. Good performance and graphical quality.

However, over the last couple of weeks I am experiencing issues. Games like FTL, Rogue Legacy etc run fine. But games like Dead Island, Crusader Kings II, Europa Universalis IV, Tropico 5, X-Com etc are crashing. Sometimes it is just after loading, sometimes I get up to 30 minutes of play, but regardless in the middle of playing the game just bombs and I dump back to desktop. None of them had any issues before and all are behaving the same way, hence I assume a system issue rather than a specific problem with each game.

I haven't done much analysis yet, thought I'd see if anyone else has had similar problems first. Let me know if so please and I'll start tinkering to see what I can find out.

Maybe in this case I would not put so many hours into EUIV. Works fine for hours. GTX 780 but CK kernel.

I have flashed my i9505 jflte with weekly 8.0 build. I did a dirty flash, wiped cache and dalvik cache, then formatted system, flashed the ROM and the gapps all in one package.

Everything seems to work fine except that when the phone is locked it loses all mobile signal and claims no network available at all. Once unlocked it usually re-enables though sometimes needs the connection cycled off and on to force it to reconnect.

Is there some settings change or something I should be aware of which may cause this?

I am rooted and have xposed, CF.lumen and busybox installed but these were on before the flash and no issues. I don't have any third party software for battery saving installed which may cause this and my Tasker profiles don't have any such tasks set, only ones to unlock my phone when on my wifi or bluetooth headset.

Anyone have any similar issues? I can post logs if needed and if someone more knowledgeable is willing to take a peek please? If no-one has any idea I'll try a clean flash instead. Thanks.

Ok, sorry for the delay, life got even busier. I have tried a clean flash but still not working. Basically ever since v8.0 my phone loses all signal when the phone is locked and randomly decides whether it reconnects or needs an off/on cycle on the network option. I've been trying to work out why but I'm not that skilled and am struggling. Does anyone have any pointers about tools I can use or anything else I can do to diagnose the issue please? If I go back down to 7.9 or lower it works so I am assuming something changed in 8.0 onwards. Any advice would be greatly appreciated please.

Couldn't get through on the published landline but we took a chance and dropped in. Turns out the new owners were here and had changed the number and was definitely the right choice. Really friendly owners and the best bar food we've ever had, at a really good price. The homemade burger and chips were fantastic. A massive sunny garden and dog friendly. The restaurant opens this week and, even though we're not that local,we will definitely be back. A perfect afternoon.
