# Fix file conflict with -doc package
rm "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/modules/${_kernver}/build/Documentation/kbuild"/Kconfig.*-* || true

adding the " || true" on the end, so that the build does not quit with an error.

On 2016-12-20 21:33 I mentioned it doesn't build for me. It seems it's enough to create those directories. See for a patch here:

Unfortunately I've got no idea why this is necessary for me but not for others.

This package fails for me here:
-> Cloning linux git repo...
Cloning into bare repository '/tmp/yaourt-tmp-krash86/aur-linux-git/linux'...
error: RPC failed; HTTP 504 curl 22 The requested URL returned error: 504 Gateway Time-out
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
==> ERROR: Failure while downloading linux git repo

I have traced it to this line in the PKGBUILD file:
Line 17:

If I change that from "git+https" to "git" only then the PKGBUILD works fine.

The CONFIG_MODVERSIONS bug was fixed (or worked around) in rc8 so I added it back to the config.

kozzi commented on 2016-12-05 07:38

@mhussain yes it will boot ok, at least for me. CONFIG_MODVERSIONS is unset, but I belive (I will try it), it will work even with CONFIG_MODVERSIONS enabled.

mhussain commented on 2016-11-27 19:47

hi there,
once this is compiled, will it now boot?
is the CONFIG_MODVERSIONS setting set to false in the config file?
if not how would I go about changeing this setting?
thanks for any help you may have! :)
