@cryptodan I don't know but you can certainly try and see.

Will this allow me to activate 1gigabit on my card? Right now I'm only getting 100megabit on the regular r8168?

@lgomesf I don't know but i think it's not so difficult to update PKGBUILD. Watch new versions here

lgomesf commented on 2022-06-06 19:33 (UTC)

Is there a replacement for this package?

guzzisti commented on 2022-05-30 06:23 (UTC)

Thanks for the hint @McDonald, package is updated.

aucunhenac commented on 2022-05-29 17:41 (UTC)

@McDonald, thanks a lot. After I download snapshot, extract, I replaced original PKGBUILD to you, using makepkg -si, works very well. Thanks again.

To support v5.18, please use this PKGBUILD, which apply the patch provided by official repo r8168.
