I maintain a couple packages whose based on this one... and I have a minor problem I haven't been able to solve. On GRUB, the kernels from this pakage and the ones based on it all show up the same, as "git" rather than a more informative name.

Where does that "git" come from? I haven't been able to find it to change it to something else... maybe it's obvious and I'm blind, though xD

+1 to bradmccormack100 , I have 600-700 KB/sec from, 2-3 MB/sec from github, and 9-10MB/sec from google mirror

Is it worth updating the git source to git+ and use Google's mirror which is a LOT faster.

The original source clones at about 20-30KB a second a lot of the time. The updated mirror clones about 10MB/s.

This is at the same time of testing for both sources. I'm from Australia and the difference in speed is huge.

Packaging error with 4.16rc1

==> Starting package_linux-git-headers()...
cp: cannot stat 'drivers/media/dvb-core/*.h': No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package_linux-git-headers().

and fixed.

I'm now having a new issue

make[4]: *** No rule to make target '/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/7.2.0/include/stddef.h', needed by '/home/hs/builds/linux-git/src/linux/tools/objtool/fixdep.o'.  Stop.

EDIT: I was able to fix this by removing src folder and building again.

I would like to build this package inside a docker container, headless.

Can you introduce a way to bypass make olddefconfig and instead just use the defaults, for example by setting an environment variable like NONINTERACTIVE, UNATTENDED or HEADLESS?

Looks like the parallelism is actually reduced by some non-compiling processes. Is this known? The count of gcc running gradually decreases to 1 while submake are spawned.

You should just put MAKEFLAGS="-j4" into /etc/makepkg.conf

@A.J This aur is not outdated. It always pulls in the latest release from git.
The Version number shown here is not the one actually built. The versionnumber of the generated package is gennerated using this command:
git describe --long | sed -E 's/^v//;s/([^-]*-g)/r\1/;s/-/./g;s/\.rc/rc/'

It seams, that this website does not support that kind of dynamic version numbers.
