Should this still be on the AUR? Since Linux kernel version 6.1, there is now code inside the kernel that does everything Faustus did.

@ryanobeirne I understand your point. It seem's possible to let them choose the optional dependencys from a list (at least i saw this in Manjaro). They do this in a graphical way with a little popup which allows you to choose which version of the dependency you want to install. I really don't know how they packager can achieve this but it's a possible way. Another idea i have is to add a hint into the description that says that one header package has to be installed as well. I only want this to make it easier for people without much knowledge to use this.

Greetings Pascal

@Sharky009 the linux-headers package is optional because users may want a different kernel with a different -headers package (linux-lts-headers, linux-zen-headers for example).

Hi, You should consider to make Linux-headers not an optional dependency because the driver will not create the kernel module without it.

Greetings and thanks for the package Pascal
