TODO: Add signature checking

backports-frag+ack does not exist and is therefore not a valid dependency, optional or otherwise.

_kernelname is a good idea indeed, but linux isn't providing linux-ARCH. I made some assocative array stub to work with that, from googled `uname -r` results for grsec and ck, so not sure if they are actually proper ones.
Also read/bookmark this:

As for the patch - just make another package providing this patch just like , though please pick some better name for package like backports-patch-whatever , and include googleable patch name in description.

I'm using a customized version of the linux-grsec kernel and had some problems to compile this package.

I had to fix the name for the linux-headers and extramodules and add add a patch for backport-includes/linux/debugfs.h

The patch for debugfs.h is by Hauke Mehrtens (maintainer of the Linux Backports Project). I found it on the OpenWrt dev site:

You can find my patchfile for the PKGBUILD it at

Just a heads up for those interested, I have created a PKGBUILD for the working patch set that I use with backports-patched, located here -

Looks like the RSS page broke itself, though it 4.x backports have been released just yesterday
(Please write something like that in future when status/dl page changes)

Added an error message in case of somebody forgetting about how `dialog` works

swiftgeek commented on 2015-01-14 02:57

In `dialog` you select menu option with space and accept whole dialog with enter…

I guess i need to also add such basic information to PKGBUILD if "" is detected -.-

During the build process, the build() fails with:

==> Starting build()...
==> WARNING: Config undetected
Press [i] to start interactive config in 10 second(s)
-> Chosen to configure with ""
Break out from the PKGBUILD
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

Any idea?

This in makedeps » "linux-headers>=$_shortkernver" « seems to be a bug … but not sure. Can anyone confirm (on older/lts kernel) ?
