Kernel >= 4.4 support seem broken. There's an upstream issue for that. You can edit the PKGBUILD if you want to try it anyway, but it MAY break your system.

I am on 4.4.5-1-ARCH and upon attempting to install I get the error, "error: target not found: linux<4.4"

After the latest kernel update, it works fine again on my laptop(early 2015 11" MBA).

$uname -r
4.4.5-1-ARCH

I used LUKS and LVM, and thought mounting /boot failed, mounting / worked, and in the rescue mode, reinstalling linux "worked" (mkinitcpio failed, and pacman exited with an error). The system worked after that.

Hopefully, yes.

IIRC, I did think about reinstalling `linux` at one point, but since I use LUKS, I didn't manage to open and mount it to be able install `linux`. I guess I could've just used a live USB and chrooted and installed `linux` that way, but I don't know why I didn't think about it at that moment.

Anyways, thanks for this advice anyways, hopefully it can help someone else if they find themselves in a similar situation.

I faced a similar issue, and reinstalled `linux` to get around it, IIRC. Sorry to have this advice too late

Thanks for updating the PKGBUILD for now.

I upgraded to 4.4 and faced the same situation as you had in the issue you reported on the GitHub repo (#43). Then, IIRC, I tried downgrading the kernel and something didn't go as expected with dkms (I don't exactly remember what), so I renamed the 4.4 directory in /usr/lib/modules to some arbitrary name in hopes that dkms would generate the necessary files again upon upgrading (and I copied the rest of the missing files from the original directory). But I shouldn't have done that; because when I upgraded back to 4.4 and rebooted, my laptop wouldn't boot up (was complaining about vfat being unknown when trying to mount /boot). I even tried installing dosfstools but to no avail.

So, I basically gave up and made a mental note to not mess with /usr/lib/modules ever again :)

@aminb: How did it screw up so had?

I'll update this PKGBUILD to require linux < 4.4

bandali commented on 2016-02-15 23:34

Same thing, not working on 4.4.1, and dkms messed up my system beyond repair. I had to reinstall arch from scratch, and I've been staying on 4.3.

This failed for me on 4.4.1. Let me know if your experience varies.
