@blkh88

Having the same issue, downgrading to 5.3.9 seems to work for now...

@wget

At the moment it is not possible to install asix-ax88179-dkms under Linux 5.4.2-arch1-1.

(2/4) Install DKMS modules
==> dkms install ax88179_178a-dkms/1.19.0 -k 5.4.2-arch1-1
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 5.4.2-arch1-1 (x86_64)
Consult /var/lib/dkms/ax88179_178a-dkms/1.19.0/build/make.log for more information.
cat /var/lib/dkms/ax88179_178a-dkms/1.19.0/build/make.log

Under Linux 5.3 everything worked.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Package updated because kernel internals have changed since kernel 4.20.

wget commented on 2018-04-19 10:46

Package updated. Thanks arcnmx for the patch.

bnavarro commented on 2018-02-14 16:06

Can this package be fixed? (update version to 1.19 and apply the patch proposed by arcnmx).

arcnmx commented on 2018-01-10 21:18

Small patch that fixes the DKMS build issues: https://pastebin.com/TGzhpKSM

Also yeah, the package version is out of date.

1.19.0 is the current version.

I modified f3flight's instructions slightly:

  1. Updated "pkgver" in PKGBUILD
  2. Download the driver from ASIX Electronics Corporation's website (http://www.asix.com.tw/download.php?sub=driverdetail&PItemID=131)
  3. Put the newly calculated sha512sum in the "sha512sums" array in PKGBUILD (replacing the 1st line)

makepkg -si as normal.

@matteoipri Hi. Yes, this is the bug I was talking about. If you haven an idea to fix it, let me know. Otherwise, I'll have to ask on the arch-general mailing list.

Hi wget, maybe this is the bug you are referring to.
Everytime there's an update (using `sudo pacman -Syu`) that involves DKMS recompilations I get the following:

:: Running pre-transaction hooks...
(1/1) Remove DKMS modules
==> dkms remove ax88179_178a-dkms/1.18.0 -k 4.12.12-1-ARCH
Error! There is no instance of ax88179_178a-dkms 1.18.0
for kernel 4.12.12-1-ARCH (x86_64) located in the DKMS tree.

and

:: Running post-transaction hooks...
(1/7) Install DKMS modules
==> dkms install ax88179_178a-dkms/1.18.0 -k 4.12.13-1-ARCH
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 4.12.13-1-ARCH (x86_64)
Consult /var/lib/dkms/ax88179_178a-dkms/1.18.0/build/make.log for more information.

Trying to reinstall the package after system update with `pacaur asix-ax88179-dkms` I get similar errors:

:: Running pre-transaction hooks...
(1/1) Remove DKMS modules
==> dkms remove ax88179_178a-dkms/1.18.0 -k 4.12.13-1-ARCH

(2/2) Arming ConditionNeedsUpdate...

When I reboot the system hangs on the systemd service for 1m30s and I have to reinstall the package after reboot.

Is something wrong on my system or is a common bug?

Thanks

I'm aware of a bug. For some reason, the module is not rebuilt after a new kernel has been upgraded. The pacman hook seems to be not triggered properly. Gonna investigate.
