Hi. Since the package became an orphan, I adopted it to continue what I actively maintain on, now on this AUR package.

The build script and config file will be up-to-date with Arch's official Linux package unless an update is required to be functional.

But I intentionally removed the documentation package because it consumes too much building time.

This package supports certain customization if compiled by the user. Check for the README file inside the package repo, or the .INSTALL message after package installation to learn how.

In case it was missed, the /doesnt/exist message is the intentional output caused by a sed trick applied to the Makefile, per Arch upstream, to prevent it from automatically running depmod during the build stage, since pacman hooks run that post-install.

Please remove replaces directive. Thank you. (No need to reply via comment; AUR now sends commit notifications.)

Thanks for all the reports and fix tips. All build issues and versioning problem are fixed and PKGBUILD + config are updated to newest Arch Linux kernel package.

Strange issue on latest git. Complains "/doesnt/exist' is required??

No patches and just following upstream master without any tags.

  DEPMOD  /home/parker/.cache/paru/clone/linux-git/pkg/linux-git/usr/lib/modules/6.5.0-1-git-12107-g7ba2090ca64e
Warning: 'make modules_install' requires /doesnt/exist. Please install it.
This is probably in the kmod package.

EDIT: Issue referenced here

Fix is to remove source from the cleanup rm

For building in clean chroot I had to add 'python' to makedepends or else make fails with

/usr/bin/env: ‘python3’: No such file or directory

I had problems building a remote with a hyphen. This is how I fixed it:

For some reason building fails for me. It build in a clean chroot though. Any idea why?

At main.c:164:

==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

This is corresponding to the following line in the makefile:

2024 | PHONY += $(build-dir)
2025 | $(build-dir): prepare
2026 |   $(Q)$(MAKE) $(build)=$@ need-builtin=1 need-modorder=1 $(single-goals)

Also happening on linux-mainline.

Besides that shouldn't python be a dependency?

Thanks for your feedback, I appreciate it.

About the custom remote/config/patches: I know people many times use tools to build/install aur packages and that may bypass the customization, but that's fine. The behavior they will get is the current mainline kernel will be build/installed which is exactly what is expected. But your suggestion to use .install file to advertise the customization is pretty good. I'll add it. Also, using SKIP to user-modifiable files actually makes sense. I'll make this change.

Regarding to the doc package, the stock arch linux package maintainers were kind enough to make it easy to identify anything related to the doc package, even the build dependencies. If if becomes difficult to track their changes in future, I'll consider re-adding the doc package.
