:: bcwc-pcie-dkms package(s) failed to install. Check .SRCINFO for mismatching data with PKGBUILD.

Anyone that's having issues getting this to compile on 4.8 branches, use this PKGBUILD and patch until the pull request I generated the diff from is merged (tested and confirmed on linux-macbook kernel 4.8.1):

bcwc-pcie-git package also gives following error:

Direct firmware load for facetimehd/1871_01XX.dat failed with error -2

but unlike bcwc-pcie-dkms, it works fine.

[ 2113.241563] facetimehd 0000:02:00.0: firmware: facetimehd/1871_01XX.dat will not be loaded

pacman build it fine , but the driver isn't working with cheese or any application .

Looks like something changed regarding dkms packages since 4.5, but it *did* build okay for me. What issue did you get?

step-2 commented on 2016-03-22 03:53

doesn't build correctly after kernel update .

EDIT : apparently it is a known issue with kernel 4.5 .
