Manjaro is technically off-topic on the AUR.

But, yes, using _kernel_tag=5.10.15-arch1 will probably work, because the alx driver code doesn't change that much, but just be aware that it will not give you the exact source that Manjaro uses. (Manjaro's kernel PKGBUILDs download the tarballs and apply patch files, instead of using a Git repository like Arch.)

Is it also possible to apply this patch for Manjaro? My kernel version is at the moment 5.10.15-1-MANJARO. So can I just use 5.10.15-arch1 as _kernel_tag? Or do I need to change more, since using my kernel version als _kernel_tag results in download errors for the used source files?

It does work as stated by @Friz64, but you have to use the kernel tag matching the one from your kernel headers.

Assuming you are using the default kernel provided on arch, follow these steps:

  1. Find out your kernel version by running pacman -Qi linux-headers. At the moment of writing this, it's 5.8.1.arch1-1

  2. Edit the PKGBUILD file and change the _kernel_tag variable accordingly. In this case: _kernel_tag=5.8.1-arch1

  3. You may skip updating the checksum of the files by running makepkg --skipchecksums. Up to you.

I get error, I try the change of @Friz64 and get the same error

I had success manually changing PKGBUILD's line 5 to _kernel_tag=5.6.3-arch1 and line 30 to '514eef113fa12f51ecb8cb6651866aa55a5d40b247ae1225d6159f681b5edcd1'.

Needs an update once again for 5.6.x...

@Luk_3D I don't use Manjaro. But I think you need install linux-headers.

==> Unable to install module alx-wol/5 for kernel 5.3.12-1-MANJARO: Missing kernel headers.

Thank you for making it work with kernel 5.x!

It's not out of date, the git on which this is based hasn't been updated
