I realized this package is leaving residuals under /usr/lib/modules/<kernel version>/updates/dkms/system76_acpi.ko.xz no idea why only this dkms module does this, but this creates a lot of junk over time :(

@jameth This package (and others in the system76 family) generally track the latest tagged release in the current release branch from the Github repos. For some packages, there are also *-git versions that track the latest commit. Those should be more current, but may be less stable.

I would recommend asking the project maintainers to tag a new release. If for some reason that is not possible, I would consider reviewing a patch that incorporates the changes.

@electrickite: So the version on Github is still 1.2, but has recently had an addition adding charge control threshold control.

This new addition is not included in the AUR package system76-acpi-dkms yet.

Is there any way this package can get updated to include those changes, or do we have to wait for an official new release to be flagged in order to get those changes incorperated into this AUR package?

@electrickite: Any particular reason why you left out 99-system76-acpi-dkms.hwdb?

@jacksondm33: I am not certain that no system requires both modules, so I don't want one package to exclude the other. However, based on your feedback the latest system76-driver package now lists the dkms modules as optional dependencies.

@jacksondm33: On my Serval WS, both system76-acpi-dkms and system76-dkms are installed in the Pop_OS! installation from the factory.

Depending on the system76 model, you should only need system76-acpi-dkms or system76-dkms. Would it be a good idea to have system76-acpi-dkms "provide" system76-dkms or something like that? The only reason I have an issue is because system76-driver requires both and system76-power requires system76-dkms. While it's not a big deal since system76-dkms just fails to load (on oryp6) and doesn't cause trouble, it would be cleaner to not have a useless package installed.

Latest version builds and it looks like this needs to be updated to fix an issue on the Systme76 Lemur Pro (lemp9).
