Official port linux-cachyos-bore and linux-cachyos-lts for Fedora


Meet CachyOS team!

linux-cachyos and linux-cachyos-lts use as default the BORE-EEVDF scheduler

  • BORE - (Burst-Oriented Response Enhancer) CPU Scheduler by firelzrd (BORE)
  • EEVDF - (Earliest Eligiable Virtual Deadline) First EEVDF is a replacement for the CFS Scheduler from Peter Zijlstra

Announcement 2024/06/16: Support for sched-ext schedulers has been added to the stable branch kernels. Installation instructions can be found on the addons repo page.

Important Notice: Clang-compiled LTO Kernel Repository

This repository offers a kernel compiled with Clang and LTO (Link-Time Optimization). It's crucial to note that enabling this repository may disrupt AKMODs functionality on kernels compiled with GCC, such as the stock Fedora kernel or kernel-cachyos (non-LTO).

Please be aware that if you activate this repository, akmods modules may not work correctly on GCC-compiled kernels.


  • AMD PSTATE Preferred Core and enabled as default
  • Latest BTRFS and XFS improvements & fixes.
  • Latest & improved ZSTD 1.5.5 patch-set.

Checking for the cpu support

Check support by the following the command

/lib64/ --help | grep "(supported, searched)"

If it does not detect x86_64_v3 support do not install the kernel. Otherwise you will end up with a non-functioning operating system!

SElinux and cachyos kernel

sudo setsebool -P domain_kernel_load_modules on

If you are using SElinux. Enable the above policy to load kernel modules.
