@artafinde: Ah sorry I totally missed the edit haha

@Omar007: that's what I have done as well and posted links to my patch and my source pakckge as well but you do you :) The package I build locally and posted below works OK against 6.4 kernels (arch, zen, prjc flavours which I have installed)

@artafinde: I've ported the patch to the B6 release. If all builds check out, the updated PKBUILD should be up in a bit.

@artafinde: There should be patches for that in mainline as of a few hours. They are technically not in an official released package yet so I might have to either back-port the patch in question or disable packaging the module here for now until a new release with a working version is available. I'll look into that later.

In the mean time, you can try the looking-glass-git pkg variant, that would include the latest mainline commits, including those module changes.

The DKMS module fails compilation against 6.4-arch1 kernel. Error log:

Fix available from upstream adjusted for B6 release:

Please remove the host package from this PKGBUILD. A recent update to glibc and/or pipewire broke the build for it, and the Looking Glass guys say the Linux host application isn't supported anymore.

I needed to remove the host parts from the PKGBUILD to get a functioning build, so keeping the host application in there will cause headaches for other users.

@dvalter: I did consider that and if it had changed again within a few days I would've changed over. It hadn't happened again though so it seems that whatever was going on has been fixed/changed. The checksum has been stable for about a month now (knocks on wood).

With this repackaging insanity on the part of, could you consider using Github as a source of the tarball?

The only difference between 8b7a4b6d33380299512bef103331635c9e9855ae0712cbe4d9ccbec2c2499c77318502aa3e0259451ef32c414ef5c8fbc103513bcd924570097dd866934cbe10 (PKGBUILD) and 558981d6b32098076ef0775a748da349941551352cbef836e37310e43e5cd6072df3dec6fa2418a9abecc7729ef0c1c6869e3168d05a3d76bea46c6eb8c4e82c (upstream) is yet again a modification time update of the VERSION file.

I'm now seeing 558981d6b32098076ef0775a748da349941551352cbef836e37310e43e5cd6072df3dec6fa2418a9abecc7729ef0c1c6869e3168d05a3d76bea46c6eb8c4e82c for looking-glass-B6.tar.gz. It doesn't help that they don't publish the expected checksum themselves anywhere.
