this pkg installs the presets in /usr/share/legion_linux instead of /etc/legion_linux, which makes the GUI program crash if you chose a preset

Did the change upstream @memchr

memchr commented on 2023-10-01 09:59 (UTC)

The hook causes mkinitpcio to rebuild mkinitramfs images twice when the linux or linux-zen package is changed. This is unnecessary as mkinitcpio already provides 90-mkinitcpio-install.hook which causes writes to usr/lib/modules/*/vmlinuz to trigger an initcpio rebuild.

Thus, at least for mkinitcpio, the following lines could be removed

<     elif [[ "$installed" =~ mkinitcpio ]] ; then
<         mkinitcpio -P

@Kathy is a good ideia but i will only not doit because some people like to patch the kernel and make lenovolegionlinux-dkms-git a dependency for lenovolegionlinux-git can cause problems.

Thanks for pointing out the error i will fix them now and update the commit

Sorry for the late replay.

lenovolegionlinux-git is still be a dependency because you need the tools in that package to make easy to interact with the kernel module

Fix some errors. Maybe you could set lenovolegionlinux-git to be an opt-dependent of lenovolegionlinux-dkms-git, and then let lenovolegionlinux-git to depend on lenovolegionlinux-dkms-git.

@randomarch1867 is normal is never was meant to be optional because that package gave the required python app to use the kernel module.

The lenovolegionlinux-dkms-git still requires lenovolegionlinux-git as a dependency.

@MrDuartePT: There are no ELF files in the package. Both DKMS and Python packages are architecture independent. See

MrDuartePT commented on 2023-04-28 12:25 (UTC)

@yochananmarqos i made the changes you point out except: The architecture is 'any' as there are no ELF files Do not use Pip, use Build and Install, see Python package guidelines

Im confuse why i need a ELF file because the AUR package build have the arch variable set to (x86_64) and this package is stated its only to be use in Lenovo Legion Laptop. The pip part need to be change upstream I need to see with maintainer how to the change (because using python install dosent install the python package corretly), if possible i will change the pkgbuild.

There are many things wrong with the PKGBUILD

  • The architecture is 'any' as there are no ELF files
  • Do not add base-devel to makedepends, it is assumed installed
  • Do not add linux-headers to makedepends, it's only optional dependency of dkms for a reason. See DKMS package guidelines
  • Dependencies are missing
  • Use a pkgver function to generate the pkgver, see VCS package guidlines
  • Do not use Pip, use Build and Install, see Python package guidelines
  • There is no reason to disable any makepkg.conf build options at all
  • Do not dump the whole repo into /usr/src/, only install or copy the needed files and folders
  • Do not install files in /usr/local/, see Arch package guidelines
  • The desktop file should be edited to only use the binary name and image name as they will be found in the proper locations
  • Desktop files, images, etc. should have 0644 permissions, they are not executable
  • Single icons belong in /usr/share/pixmaps/. Do not install them directly into /usr/share/icons/. Sized icons belong in /usr/share/icons/hicolor/${size}x${size}/apps
  • The ${pkgdir} variable must be quoted
  • Use install -d to create a folder with 0755 permissions, not mkdir -p. Using install -D creates the leading directory
