@andreyv I've downloaded a fresh copy of the package files, and now the package seems to build properly.

@ikke: Before making changes, I would like to understand the cause of the problem. dkms.conf is generated from in prepare() and should not be a symlink from the source dir. Can you provide precise steps for how to reproduce this with makepkg in a clean checkout?

/usr/src/broadcom-wl- is a symlink pointing to the dkms.conf in the package dir (which doesn't exist on the machine I'm installing the package on).

src/dkms.conf in the package dir is a symlink and when you cp that symlink, it just stays a symlink. Adding -L to the copy command makes sure the actual file is copied.

$ ls -l pkg/broadcom-wl-dkms/usr/src/broadcom-wl-

@ikke: I don't observe this when I run "makepkg -sf" in the package directory. The generated package doesn't contain symlinks.

How do you build the package? Which symlinks are created and to where?

PKGBUILD creating broken symlinks for me. This patch fixes that:

What to do?

@CelticSpice & @andreyv: Confirmed, I installed the latest package and it's working again.
