hey with github switching to https for git clones you will have to change it to so it can get the repos

@DanielH There is no such code in the PKGBUILD. If you have updated the kernel just before installing the driver, reboot your system and try again.

akvcam-dkms-git 1.0.2.r2.g018c54e-1 refuses to properly install akvcam.conf, so module isn't functional:

sudo dkms status akvcam, 1.0.2.r3.g931473c, 5.5.13-arch1-1, x86_64: installed Error! Could not locate dkms.conf file. File: /var/lib/dkms/vboxhost/5.2.0_OSE/source/dkms.conf does not exist.

/var/lib/dkms/vboxhost/5.2.0_OSE/source/dkms.conf is a symlink to /usr/src/vboxhost-5.2.0_OSE, this directory doesn't exist in my system...

IMHO, symlink must to point to /usr/src/akvcam-1.0.2.r3.g931473c.dkms.conf, this is the right site where dkms.conf for akvcam is installed.

Same issue arises whwn I try to install akvcam-dkms 1.0.2-1, but in its own directories.

Could you kindly ammend your PKGBUILDs? Your efforts will be appreciated.

Best regards, DanielH.
