Can you please adjust this to dynamically build on the 610 kernel?

Can you make it compile for the latest rc kernel, please? Right now it does not work with 6.10.0-rc5-1 (manjaro): /var/lib/dkms/ntsync/6.9.5/build/make.log

Module isn't loaded, even after modprobing

@loathingkernel thank you very much for the quick fix! I was able to install it now :)

@joni_999 I forgot to push the update to AUR. I seem to have some issues with pushing right now, you can find the updated PKGBUILD here

I get the following error when trying to install this:

Seems like it can't download one of the files.

Hello, yes it was a conscious decision because I couldn't think of a good reason for this many configurable switches, as well as making the PKGBUILD harder to quickly parse. It is my opinion that PKGBUILD scripts should be easy to parse for anyone without having to follow a lot of conditionals, they are not applications.

I am considering adding back the packaged kernel module for the default kernel, but it doesn't make much sense since dkms will take care of that.

What other features are missing which could be considered useful?

Hello @loathingkernel, it looks like you removed several features from my winesync PKGBUILD, which this seems to be based on. Is there a reason for this? Could you add them back?
