plz add aarch64 support. I have tested ok on my ARM Box running Arch Linux ARM.

arch=('i686' 'x86_64' 'aarch64')

With the latest 6.4.4-arch1-1 kernel, the DKMS installation fails:

Kernel 5.17: Remove use of slave_id in dma_slave_config

this patch should be applied to build on kernel 5.17.y.

There's no way for me to test whether it builds let alone works for ARM so unless someone can take up that part I'd rather keep it simple. You can always use --ignorearch with makepkg.

alzyx commented on 2021-01-19 10:52 (UTC)

thanks a lot @grimler ! I gave it a try and it compiled ok.

Then dkms install, then depmod, ... no issues

I didnt test it on the run yet, but I guess the mantainer could add aarch64 to the architectures list!

grimler commented on 2021-01-19 10:07 (UTC)

@alzyx It happens because aarch64 is not an architecture listed in the PKGBUILD. Generally it means that the person that created the package has not tested it for that arch, but it could also mean that it simply not works on that arch.

You can edit the PKGBUILD and add aarch64 to the arches here: and give it a try.

I'm new to Arch, so please be kind (really Manjaro in my case). I setup a RaspberryPi4 with Manjaro, and I need it to interface it with instruments via GPIB, where I work.

A collegue of mine was able to do it on a Manjaro-PC, using:

  • pamac build linux-gpib-dkms *.

But on my Rapsberry, I get back this:

  • linux-gpib-dkms is not available for 'aarch64' architecture. *

There is some solution? thanks...

I had to apply this patch to not receive a make error during pacman -U linux-gpib-dkms-4.3.0-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz:

Ah, thanks!
