Just add provides=(UKSMD-BUILTIN) to your custom kernel PKGBUILD.

Kindly consider removing the linux-zen (and related) kernels as dependencies, it'd help those of us who use a custom kernel with ksm. It won't really break anything IMHO, as those who choose to install this really should know what they are doing.

Makes sense, thanks.

Current source artifact name v${pkgver}.tar.gz = v6.5.1.tar.gz may lead to a name clash, a file conflict and a checksum error with any other package with the very same version for those people who have SRCDEST set in makepkg.conf

From makepkg.conf.5:

SRCDEST="/path/to/directory" If this value is not set, downloaded source files will only be stored in the current directory. Many people like to keep all source files in a central location for easy cleanup, so this path can be set here.

I would like to get a proper explanation regarding functional meaning of such a change. Thank you.

Warning: Before attempting to submit a package you are expected to familiarize yourself with Arch packaging standards and all the articles under "Related articles".

In fact, it probably matters even more for AUR packages than for ones in the official repositories.

Does it matter for an AUR package?

Freso commented on 2024-02-18 17:43 (UTC)

Please make the $source filename unique (see Arch package guidelines#Package sources); e.g., something like source=(${pkgname}-${pkgver}.tar.gz::${url}/archive/v${pkgver}.tar.gz) should work.

A suggestion: Add uksmdstats as optional dependency.
