Package runs OK for me on kernel 6.5 but not on 6.6.

dkms error :

If I comment out pci_disable_pcie_error_reporting(pdev); at line 1821 in /usr/src/alx-wol-6/main.c , dkms can build the module and it all works on kernel 6.6.2-arch1-1.

Is an update for kernel 6.6 necessary?

Hi all, just pushed a rel-update to fix the module version override issue.

@christoph_heiss I found no mention at all of alx in the journal for the boot where I got the problem. But this morning I rerun the dkms install (from history, so I'm sure I used the same command), rebooted and it's working now.

@Hugo_Placer: Thanks for the report! Seems I may have fscked something up while packaging, I'll have a look and push an updated package-revision as necessary. Sorry!

@j0se: Can you provide the output of # lspci -vvv -s <slot>, where <slot> is the first column of # lspci | grep Ethernet? Also, are there any errors in kernel log (# dmesg | grep alx)?

You can also reach me via e-mail if you want, to further debug this :^)

With kernel 6.2.1-arch1-1, the network interface is even missing on ifconfig -a.

Hugo_Placer commented on 2023-02-16 15:15 (UTC)

@jOse yes, is the same error :). Thankss!

I get this error:

==> dkms install --no-depmod alx-wol/6 -k 6.1.11-arch1-1
Module version  for alx.ko.zst
exactly matches what is already found in kernel 6.1.11-arch1-1.
DKMS will not replace this module.
You may override by specifying --force.
Error! Installation aborted.
==> WARNING: `dkms install --no-depmod alx-wol/6 -k 6.1.11-arch1-1' exited 6

So I installed the module with # dkms install -m alx-wol -v 6 --force.

@Hugo_Placer maybe you got the same error? WOL is working here with linux 6.1.11.arch1-1.

Hugo_Placer commented on 2023-02-02 08:46 (UTC)

In the last version of Linux kernel this patch doesn't work. "ethtool interface | grep Wake-on" doesn't show up anything. :(

Hi all, I just pushed an update, for compatibility with 6.1. Sorry for the delay.

I've updated the driver to the latest upstream and brought some quality-of-life improvements to the patch. It was indeed broken due to a change in the netif API [0].

My next steps are that I will be trying to upstream these changes again. If this is only revision-dependent, that should definitively be doable.
