@melvinvermeeren: done. Thank you for noticing the superfluous lines in the .install, I had forgotten to remove them!

Hello, 0.39.0 just got released upstream. Adding support for some tablets and fixing bugs. https://github.com/linuxwacom/input-wacom/releases/tag/input-wacom-0.39.0

Also, could you remove first three lines from the post_install() step? Because of the new pacman dkms triggers this seems to install for the current kernel twice.

Thank you!

Please patch dkms.conf so that it will compile against freshly installed linux-headers:

--- dkms.conf.orig      2017-12-30 15:13:20.000000000 +1000
+++ dkms.conf   2017-12-30 15:10:35.864857266 +1000

Also please edit PKGBUILD for the following MD5SUM on patched dkms.conf:

This patch should address issues like these:

==> dkms install input-wacom/0.37.1 -k 4.14.9-1-ARCH
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 4.14.9-1-ARCH (x86_64)
Consult /var/lib/dkms/input-wacom/0.37.1/build/make.log for more information.

When it looks in the previously removed linux-headers for the currently running kernel (instead of the newly installed linux-headers for a new kernel).

@krauss Sourceforge is having trouble at the moment: it fails to validate because it downloads a web page instead of the file. I found that downloading the file separately works.

The md5sums validation is failing for input-wacom-0.36.0.tar.bz2

@apicici I see, thanks. We'll keep on waiting

@rodrunner: input-wacom and xf86-input-wacom are two different things: input-wacom contains the kernel driver, while xf86-input-wacom contains the X driver. As you can see by checking

https://sourceforge.net/projects/linuxwacom/files/xf86-input-wacom/input-wacom/

input-wacom is still at version 0.33.0.

rodrunner commented on 2017-02-07 16:46

Hi,
after updrading today, I see version 0.34.0-1 now:

local/xf86-input-wacom 0.34.0-1
X.Org Wacom tablet driver

apicici commented on 2017-01-26 14:37

@electricprism: the input-wacom kernel modules have not been updated to 0.34.0 yet. I will take a look into the error you are getting.

EDIT: the compilation error should be fixed now.
