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!

Python bindings are standalone packages

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/python-linux-gpib/ and https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/python2-linux-gpib/

Hey, could you please enable the python3 bindings here? See my PKGBUILD, linux-gpib-svn for an example of how you might do that.

Thanks for the really quick update. (edited for style) -- This appeared.

In order to use the new version, reload all gpib modules manually.

Unfortunately it is not compatible with >= 4.15. The SVN version works but there is no stable version update yet.

albron commented on 2018-04-29 14:09

Build fails with errors such as:

implicit declaration of function 'init_timer'; did you mean 'init_timers'?

As far as I can tell, this is due to the reorganization of the kernel timers API for kernel versions >= 4.15

@Foucault, you are right. On a clean machine everything works smoothly. On my work machine however for some reason this package conflicts with filesystem and the problematic "file" is /lib. Super weird. Time to get my hands dirty.

suridaj commented on 2018-01-10 16:21

Good point. I will try it inside a clean VM and report back.

Foucault commented on 2018-01-07 12:12

This should not happen, because there are no files in the package itself under /lib. Are you sure there are no leftover files from a previous package?
