1. Check your system for support
Important: Before you enable any of these repos, check if your system supports the feature level you want to enable (e.g.
x86-64-v3). If you don't check beforehand, you might be unable to boot your system anymore and need to downgrade any package that you may have upgraded.
Check which feature-levels your CPU supports with
Example output snippet for a system supporting up to
Subdirectories of glibc-hwcaps directories, in priority order: x86-64-v4 x86-64-v3 (supported, searched) x86-64-v2 (supported, searched)
2. Install keyring & mirrorlist
yay -S alhp-keyring alhp-mirrorlist
alhp-keyring provides the current signing keys used by ALHP,
alhp-mirrorlist a selection of mirrors.
3. Choose a mirror (optional)
/etc/pacman.d/alhp-mirrorlist and comment out/in mirrors you want to have enabled/disabled. Per default selected
is a cloudflare-based mirror which
should provide decent speed worldwide.
alhp.devis hosted by ALHP directly. If you have problems with a mirror, open an issue at the mirrorlist repo.
4. Modify /etc/pacman.conf
Add the appropriate repos above your regular Archlinux repos.
[core-x86-64-v3] Include = /etc/pacman.d/alhp-mirrorlist [extra-x86-64-v3] Include = /etc/pacman.d/alhp-mirrorlist [core] Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist [extra] Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist # if you need [multilib] support [multilib-x86-64-v3] Include = /etc/pacman.d/alhp-mirrorlist [multilib] Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
x86-64-v3 with the x86-64 feature level you want to enable.
ALHP only builds for
x86-64-v2at the moment (list is subject to change). You can see all available repositories here.
5. Update package database and upgrade:
Remove ALHP packages
To disable ALHP remove all x86-64-vX entries in
/etc/pacman.conf and remove
After that you can refresh pacmans databases and downgrade all packages like:
Enabled for all packages build after 04 Nov 2021 12:07:00 UTC. More details. LTO status is visible per package on the package status page.
Linux Kernel packages
KCPPFLAGS are used to build the kernel packages with our additional flags.
Directly linked kernel modules
Due to our increase in pkgrel, building the kernel packages breaks all directly linked modules like
virtualbox-host-dkms). Their respective
not affected. This issue is being tracked in #68, a solution is being worked on.

What packages are built
Why is package X not up-to-date
Also relevant for: I can't find package X / Application X fails to start because it links to an old/newer lib
ALHP build packages after they are released in the official Archlinux Repos (not including
This leads to packages being delayed if the current batch contains many packages or packages which take a while to
You can always check on the progress of the current build-cycle on
the package status page.
Please refrain from opening issues caused by packages currently in queue/not yet build/not yet moved to the repo.
Please keep in mind that large rebuilds such as
python can take days to complete on our current build
ALHP provides a debuginfod instance under
To use it, have
debuginfod installed on your system and add it to your
echo "https://debuginfod.alhp.dev" > /etc/debuginfod/alhp.urls
For any non-issue questions or if you just want to chat, ALHP has a matrix
