@dreieck: There is no newer release at the moment. B3 is still the latest. If the -git version works on newer kernels then it's already fixed upstream, just not bundled in a release yet. And if that version works for you, just use that.
Just make sure you're using the appropriate host application as well as you should've been notified about when you installed that version ;)

`looking-glass-module-dkms-git' seems to work, though. Maybe this package here needs an update to a more recent fixed version/ commit?

@dreieck: Not much I can do about that, that is an upstream problem. Kernels past 5.9 no longer have the 'res' field afaik so it'd need to be made compatible.

Somehow dkms fails on me:

@Omar007 Understood, thanks for the explanation! Just finding my way around Manjaro since I installed it first time 2 weeks ago :)

@Kana: release build VS. git head/master build

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_User_Repository#What_is_the_difference_between_foo_and_foo-git_packages%3F

You can also always check the PKGBUILDs (as one probably should when pulling stuff from the AUR to build a package with to install on ones system which will be done with root access level ;) )

Sorry for maybe silly question.. The descriptions don't say anything about it, so I don't quite understand the difference between this package and the other one of virtually same name on https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/looking-glass-git

And what would be the difference if I directly cloned the https://github.com/gnif/LookingGlass.git repository?

Url should be updated to https://looking-glass.io/

Kernel module fails to compile with linux >= 5.9 due to a breaking change, see issue #314 for details.

FallenSnow commented on 2020-10-14 00:47

B2 has been released.
