@Ashark, Yes I tested with the last commit (ee1c578774e62fe4b08d92750620ed3094642160) and for me, it's OK with my current kernel (4.12.13-1-ARCH)

Ashark commented on 2017-08-22 02:57

Anybody tried using devel branch?

Thank you for evdi-git workaround!

I can confirm that it won't compile, but I don't know why. For now, use the evdi-git package.

Getting the following line while trying to install this on an up-to-date system, 4.12.6-1-ARCH

cc1: error: code model kernel does not support PIC mode

I get this with all versions of evdi that I have tried:

Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 4.12.6-1-ARCH (x86_64)
Consult /var/lib/dkms/evdi/1.4.1/build/make.log for more information.
error: the command failed

In the named log I see:

DKMS make.log for evdi-1.4.1 for kernel 4.12.6-1-ARCH (x86_64)

echo >&2 " include/generated/autoconf.h or include/config/auto.conf are missing.";\
echo >&2 " Run 'make oldconfig && make prepare' on kernel src to fix it."; \

Is this EVDI or is it my system?

yes I replaced the md5, and all was fine for me. What is your display link driver version ?

Ashark commented on 2017-08-12 19:34

@WhaX, thank you, but it is not working for me.
Did you just replaced md5sum? I have no problem building package.
Problem is while installing. I tried it with your pkgbuild without success.

@Ashark for 4.12.4-1-ARCH use :)

Anyone have success installing it with 4.12.4-1-ARCH kernel? Here is my output:

Kernel preparation unnecessary for this kernel. Skipping...

Building module:
cleaning build area...(bad exit status: 2)
make -j4 KERNELRELEASE=4.12.4-1-ARCH all INCLUDEDIR=/lib/modules/4.12.4-1-ARCH/build/include KVERSION=4.12.4-1-ARCH DKMS_BUILD=1....

DKMS: build completed.

Running module version sanity check.
- Original module
- No original module exists within this kernel
- Installation
- Installing to /usr/lib/modules/4.12.4-1-ARCH/kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/evdi/


The same happens (bad exit status: 2) if downgrading linux and linux-headers to 4.12.3.
Please help.
