The URL for the driver 404s. A working URL I got was but I'm not sure that will hold up over time.

That works fine, thanks, lets hope @wget can update the package with the fix.

Here's a working PKGBUILD that will install against newer kernels AND 4.19:

Simply needed to add the following to the prepare block:

    # Make compatible with newer kernels
    sed -i "${srcdir}/${_filename}/Makefile" -e 's/SUBDIRS/M/g'

More info here:

Any updates on this issue?

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

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).
