Even after this package was updated, it is still failing to build, with the same error as before. This can be worked around by taking out the defunct DocBook install line out of the PKGBUILD lines 175-177, you're looking to remove or comment these:

# add docbook makefile
install -D -m644 Documentation/DocBook/Makefile \

Maintainer please updating the PKGBUILD to reflect the new changes in the kernel I pointed to before.

EDIT: The maintainer fixed this and is no longer an issue

CTXz is right, Documentation/DocBook/Makefile is gone, it and the rest of the DocBook directory were removed in a 4.13 merge

Getting the following error on build :

install: cannot stat 'Documentation/DocBook/Makefile': No such file or directory

Looks like DocBook is no longer present in 4.12

Thanks for the hint! Actually, I got an even more convenient proposal on the forums: However, I get silly config prompts when trying to build the kernel after the first git bisect run (see later posts in the same thread). I suppose that the package should build without user interaction so I must be doing something wrong...

Yes you can:

Instead of specifying the branch, you can specify a specific commit.

I need to bisect the kernel versions to find a bug. Can I somehow use this package in combination with git bisect to do so? Thanks!

However linux-git 4.11 built successsfully, with no HDMI i915 sound.

rm: cannot remove '/var/build/linux-git/pkg/linux-git-headers/usr/lib/modules/4.4.0-g765bdb4/build/Documentation/kbuild/Kconfig.*-*': No such file or directory


# 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.
