After reading over the great Arch Linux guide for the Dell XPS 13 9560, I am curious about using the patch mentioned for enabling low-power modes on NVMe SSDs. To quote the repo that contains the patch's source:
To manually compile the Archlinux kernels from here, follow steps:
(1) git clone: https://github.com/damige/linux-nvme.git
(2) go into /src/[kernel you want]
(3) type "makepkg" -wait until compilation completes-
(4) pacman -U linux-nvme-*
(5) Adjust your bootloader to boot linux-nvme
I was wondering if it would be possible to compile this for Elementary OS(Ubuntu-based). Would I need to reinstall from scratch? Any advice on implementing this in other distros would be greatly appreciated.
