In case anybody needs this module with 3.10 kernel, here's a patch to make it work with the "new" procfs API. It's a tiny bit chaotic but it works fine for me. It applies directly against the source, no patch for 3.0 kernel is needed.

Thank you very much! This worked here, too.

I found solution. Problem is compilation on gcc 4.5. Using gcc44 omnibook works ok.

This package does not work here anymore (It did some kernel-releases ago but I actually don't remember when).

It compiles without problems and the package builds fine, but when loading the module I just get the message "killed", the module is then loaded but it does not do anything and trying to unload it results in a neverending attempt but the module wont stop.

thanks for the info, Nareto
toshiba_bluetooth works for me too now (satellite a100) without the good'ol omnibook here

Nareto commented on 2010-07-01 18:01

nope, I had the headers installed. Anyway, never mind: I just discovered my bluetooth works even without omnibook, with the new toshiba_bluetooth module (I have a toshiba satellite a200)
thanks anyways

Ok. I think I now where is the problem.
It's looks like, you haven't installed kernel26-headers package.
(That's strange, because this package is in makedepends array).

I've got that error after running makepkg.

You doing something wrong.
Are you sure, you follow on the instructions in the wiki:
http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AUR#Installing_Packages_from_the_AUR
Download tarball omnibook-git.tar.gz, extract , go to to new folder (omnibook-git),
open in this folder terminal and enter command makepkg, after that , you can do pacman -U omnibook-git-*pkg.tar.xz

I'm getting this error:

here's what I have in that directory:
$ ls /lib/modules/2.6.33-ARCH/

I tried just creating the directory "build" inside it but I get:
