I can't seem to find any information which devices are supported with this? I'm running a Macbook Pro 10,x (15" Retina Early 2013), would this be compatible?

Can provides=("linux=${pkgver}") and provides=("linux-headers=${pkgver}") fields be added in PKGBUILD (sections _package() and _package-headers() respectively) so that packages that depend on linux are satisfied by linux-macbook?

Thanks for this one! Unfortunately I am still not getting good enough audio performance from this, and have to use the rt-lts kernel, as this is the only kernel I have found that 1) gives rock solid audio performance and 2) wakes up after lid close-induced suspend... However, the package seems not to be maintained much, so I'd be very interested in a macbook-centric version of the realtime patch. Any hope for such a thing? Alternatively, any pointers as to how I could compile such a beast myself?

@m3thodic Thanks! The new package installs fine for me. I didn't get it via pacman -Syu, though: it seems like the repo metadata still points to -1.

@LawnGnome Should be all set, thanks again!

@LawnGnome Hmm, yeah was afraid I had overlooked something -- I was coming from the 4.18.16 package to 4.19.4 and ran into a little snag. Thanks for the heads-up I'll build a new package straight from the AUR source to be safe and I'll push it up shortly.

I'm getting a file conflict with the 4.19.4.arch1-1 binary package:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
linux-macbook: /usr/lib/systemd/system exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

Building from source did not result in the same conflict, interestingly.

Works now, tnx.

@espenaf I just updated to 4.18.14 -- can you please try now? Thanks!
