Please set pkgrel to 1.

Couldn't independently reinstall the used driver since they all come in a package (referred to by dkms as digimend-kernel-drivers). Rebuilt and reinstalled the kernel via abk to no effect. (As an aside, modinfo as shown in previous comment shows 9 modules signed out of 9 and the module signatures to be identical between the nvidia and digimend drivers.)

@EternalFlameIV - you need to either dkms install hid-uclogic/xxxx (where xxxx is the module version number) - or reinstall the kernel

EternalFlameIV commented on 2023-09-04 14:40 (UTC)

Still no dice - created the link /etc/dkms/hid-uclogic.conf -> /etc/dkms/kernel-sign.conf, uninstalled, rebooted, and reinstalled digimend-kernel-drivers-dkms-git, and still getting a warning and kernel taint.

@EternalFlameIV - I think your /etc/dkms symlink names need to match what you modprobe

(so probably one of hid-kye hid-uclogic hid-polostar hid-viewsonic).conf

you are using digimend-kernel-drivers.conf

Hello - I've been trying to get Digimend properly signed on linux-xanmod, but for some reason the kernel refuses to acknowledge the modules as signed:

Weirdly enough, I seem to have no problems with nvidia-dkms, which loads fine and does not throw a "signature verification failed" error at me.

The modules in /lib/modules/${kernver}/updates/dkms also seem signed:

Is there something special about these modules that makes the kernel not like them? Is more work just needed to support more DKMS packages?

I will try it right away. Thank you!

EDIT: It works. Thank you!!

UPDATE 30/10/2022: actually none of my dkms modules get signed.

I didn't have the time, to run arch in a while. Today I came back and I am greeted with a black screen, when I select xanmod. I have also tried linux with the force module sign kernel argument.

When I remove the kernel boot parameter, the linux kernel boots without a problem. For the xanmod kernel I don"t even have the kernel parameter enabled.

I checked and none of the dkms modules are signed, even though the abk script is running without any problems.

What am I doing wrong? I might just give up and disable secureboot.

@PrfStrwberry - abk -i will look for packages in whatever you have configured in /etc/makepkg.conf for PKGDEST.

  • linux-xanmod support added in the current 0.5.2 version.

  • For others building AUR kernels see the AUR Kernel Notes for issues I noticed when testing abk.

I ==> Finished making: linux-xanmod 6.0.2-1 (Wed 19 Oct 2022 01:04:25 BST) - perhaps you could test the signed Nvidia module ? (I normally use an AMD GPU in Arch / Nvidia in a vm)

PrfStrwberry commented on 2022-10-17 05:19 (UTC)

Could you help me with my problem? I am trying to build linux-xanmod from aur and I need nvidia-dkms. So what I am doing is as follows:

I git clone from aur linux-xanmod into ~/kernelbuild folder, as suggested by Arch.

I then abk -u linux-xanmod, copy the code from the example to the PKGBUILD.

Then I do abk -b linux-xanmod.

It builds until the is called from the script. It cannot find the 'current ' folder. So what I do, is running -c myself. Now the 'current' folder exists and building continues.

After building it says log can be read at: and there is just an empty output. Anyway it finished, so on to the next step.

abk -i linux-xanmod

The linux-xanmod package does not exist.

So I am trying makepkg -si and I can install it, but when I restart into linux-xanmod, I just get a grey screen. I assume it's because nvidia-dkms is not booting with secure boot.

The linux kernel with nvidia-dkms and secure boot works flawless though.

Got it working, thanks for the help & for maintaining this package!
