How to install linux-ck without compiling?

For a (maybe) better desktop performance. Are there any pre-compiled packages anywhere? I would be interested particularly in the "linux-ck-p4" package or else in the general "linux-ck" package. Repository "repo-ck" ( http://repo-ck.com ) has only support for architecture x86_64... Should I install from the AUR by compiling the whole? Could take long time on old 32 bit machines.

I see two possibilities there:
Either compile the packages you need yourself from aur (preferably with devtools32 from [releng] on mirror.archlinux32.org) or ask the maintainers of linux-ck if they are willing to provide i686 packages, too.

I thought maybe somebody compiled it for himself, and can provide the  .pkg.tar.xz file.
About how many time would it take to compile that package? Few hours or a whole day?

In my experince, allocate a few hours to compile a kernel.  It depends largely on the hardware you're running it on, of course, and the danger when talking about i686 binaries you're using a seriously old computer, but it would have to be really pretty ancient to take a whole day.  I suspect most things built using make are io-limited most of the time anyway, so the more important thing is probably how fast your discs are.

If you don't need CPU optimization for your CPU architecture the linux-zen which is similar to linux-ck is available in the repo.
