Package community/bbswitch-dkms fails to build the module on this kernel (linux-mainline-4.6-1). I've tracked the problem down to a new user-space utility (objtool) that comes with 4.6 and needs to be installed.

In the core/linux package they handle it like this:

"I just wanted to know if something changed in the package to trigger the bad behaviour in yaourt or if it was an helper update which I didn't notice.

P.S. I really don't know why everybody hates helpers so much. Using makepkg is easy but tedious when you have lots of packages from aur: helpers are a great thing, especially since they allow you to edit the pkgbuilds on the fly."

darkbasic, the issue comes because it is clear that either the process of doing it manually is unknown, or the poster was not willing to put forward the effort to test it manually.

One should make sure it was the AUR package and not the helper first. The correct thing to do when it fails is, do it manually, then if it succeeds file the report with yaourt devs not the perfectly fine Aur package.

I use Yaourt and did not come here asking about the issue. Actually in this case rebooting the system and running yaourt again worked out. I doubt anyone hates people using helpers, they just are not interested in going out of the way to support them in their packages. Don't worry I have been lazy at times as well and got varied degrees of grief over it.

Please update the source from www.kernel.org to cdn.kernel.org. cdn.kernel.org is using fastly cdn to speedup downloads.

There have been some changes in the config for the standard kernel build and now my touchscreen on my tablet is working again. Is there any chance that you could update your config file with these changes.

Thanks

Was just coming to mention that powerplay is now on by default in latest rc but was a little slow on the draw. Glad this is the case. Now cant wait till this makes it to the official arch kernel so I can remove this from my regular updates.
For the person with the Yaourt issue make sure it is the latest version and restart your computer I tested it and it was working.

AMDGPU Powerplay is now activated by default with 4.6 RC1! \o/

Why are you posting that? You're using an AUR helper that is broken, just use makepkg.

Guys he will not enable it, if you want powerplay just uncomment "make nconfig" from the pkgbuild and add it by yourself. In the next kernel version it will be probably enabled by default and the problem will not exist anymore :)
