@timschumi Function added. Basic makepkg tests are OK

-- EDIT: according to the PKGBUILD wiki, we still need to maintain pkgver even if a pkgver() function exists

timschumi commented on 2018-06-29 14:01


Could you add a pkgver() function into the PKGBUILD file so that the version number is updated automatically when building and includes the count of commits and the current revision? This would be extremely useful for people that are running auto-builders that listen on changes that happen directly in the source tree (and I think it is standard to include those numbers in packages built directly from a VCS).

I pasted a possible solution below. I'm sure that the sed/grep regex to retrieve the version number could be improved, but that is the best that I can build with my limited knowledge.

pkgver() {
    cd "${srcdir}/${_gitname}"
    echo "$(sed -nE 's/#define\s+COREFREQ_VERSION\s+"([0-9\.]+)"/\1/p' coretypes.h).r$(git rev-list --count HEAD).g$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)"

@CyrIng, I see, problem solved.

stardiviner : You have to disable the NMI Watchdog. See the CoreFreq prerequisites @

Updated, the previous bug is fixed now. Thanks.
I have segment fault when I run `corefreq-cli`.
I run `modprobe corefreqk` and `corefreqd` with `sudo`. Then run `corefreq-cli` get segment fault. I debug it with `gdb`.
Here is the output:

@stardiviner: Issue with kernel version 4.11 is solved.
A CoreFreq commit has been pushed into the GitHub repository to fix a register renaming MSR_NHM_SNB_PKG_CST_CFG_CTL with MSR_PKG_CST_CONFIG_CONTROL; and to include the header file "linux/sched/signal.h"

Just install corefreq-git again to get fix.

If you're running into random segfaults you have to disable the nmi-watchdog using 'echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/nmi_watchdog'.
