Those of you requesting checkout of the src not a git clone, I urge you to make noise about instead of bugging this poor maintainer it should be solved systemwide not on a per package basis

I think a lot of people use this as a base to do custom kernel builds (different configs)... would you consider adding either conditionals to the cp includes or adding a || : to suppress errors, or maybe something like.

cd $srcdir/$pkgname; cp -a include/*/.h --parents -t $builddir/maybe/usr/lib/

I used the make localmodconfig to generate a config, and it does not have any dvb etc includes and dies during package()

Could you change line 62 from

make olddefconfig


yes '' | make olddefconfig

so that i can automate building this package

sarvex, there are other packages to fulfill this role, this package is for users who want to build a specific git-version.

Cloning the git repository for building the kernel is a huge waste of bandwidth.

It would be far more efficient to use the mainline compressed tar from the website

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.
