PKGBUILD fails to build for me but it can be easily fixed, built and installed, working good on my Realtek RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI

I have a broadcom wireless card and a RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet card, so I need broadcom-wl-ck and r8168-ck. but I installed linux-ck-4.17, and could apply broadcom-wl-ck driver, r8168-ck is not suitable for linux-ck 4.17 according to the dependencies show above.

@enihcam no, I tried to modprobe but get error: modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'r8168': Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)


[ 1223.431785] r8168: Unknown symbol GLOBAL_OFFSET_TABLE (err 0)

@freenestor, can you adopt this package?

Is there r8168-ck for linux-ck-4.17 ?
