Since the 5.15 kernel broke the patch to fix the navi reset bug, I cannot update this package anymore. Gnif (Geoffrey McRae, the creator of the patch in this package) deprecated the manual patching of the linux kernel in favour of a linux dkms-module, to be found on the following github page: https://github.com/gnif/vendor-reset The github repo is currently not updated, so as of right now it seems the fix will only work for linux kernel versions that are <5.15. Since I lack enough knowledge of the linux kernel to fix it myself, I recommend to wait for the github module. It's way easier anyways as it does not require a complete recompilation of the linux kernel. I will deprecate this package because of the reasons stated above. I hope you found it somewhat useful the time it was around.

@koriwi I changed the URL in the PKGBUILD to point to the new repository now. I apologize for the inconvenience, I'm still rather new to all of this.

Does not work anymore as it tries to use git.archlinux.org. Yesterday i could not resolve this DNS entry.

If you got the following error:

==> Verifying source file signatures with gpg...
    archlinux-linux git repo ... FAILED (unknown public key 3B94A80E50A477C7)
==> ERROR: One or more PGP signatures could not be verified!

This will do the trick

curl -s https://keybase.io/heftig/pgp_keys.asc/\?fingerprint\=a2ff3a36aaa56654109064ab19802f8b0d70fc30 | gpg --import
gpg --lsign 3B94A80E50A477C7

Edit: Found the solution

I wanted to say thank you for making and maintaining this package. This patch is absolutely critical to those of us passing a Navi card to a guest VM. One request I have is: can you add a -j$(nproc) argument to the compilation sections or add a prompt for it? This would make compilation much faster by allowing the compiler to use more cores.

EDIT: I found out in yay that you can add the -j$(nproc) argument yourself before compiling and this makes compilation take way less time.
