"This driver uses an older codebase. kernel 4.12+ will include a newer version"

here kernel 5.2.8 builtin :

Cannot build this, using Linux 4.14.28-1-lts:

Log (note: changed LANG env for english output, fails regardless without it)

Edit: Just realized this comment is unrelated to this package. I had similar error to cafehaine, which was caused by the hadess/rtl8723bs driver. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- It seems that the rtl8723bs driver repository has been heavily cleared out, due to migration to upstream linux. So either use mainline kernel or change the rtl8723bs source to version prior to this commit:

When trying to install this package, I get this error: ==> Lancement de build()... make ARCH=x86_64 CROSS_COMPILE= -C /lib/modules/4.10.11-1-ARCH/build M=/home/cafehaine/.cache/pacaur/8723bs-git/src/8723bs modules make[1] : on entre dans le répertoire « /usr/lib/modules/4.10.11-1-ARCH/build » // entering /usr/lib/modules/4.10.11-1-ARCH/build make[1]: *** Aucune règle pour fabriquer la cible « modules ».

thank you voobscout , i have changed the path

voobscout commented on 2017-02-28 08:21 (UTC)

Please use "/usr/lib" instead of "/lib" in PKGBUILD, otherwise it produces install errors - "8723bs-git: /lib exists in filesystem". "/lib" is a symlink to /usr/lib Thanks!

sorry for the late answer , i will take a look. Which hardware do you use? there are many CONFIG_PLATFORM_ARM options in the makefile

nazar554 commented on 2017-01-14 19:16 (UTC)

can you add ARCH=arm to make config? Its seems to do "uname -m" which incorrectly reports ARCH as armv7l
