@jghodd depend on v86d instead of providing it. i have removed uvesafb-dkms dependancy from the v86d package.

Changing only version number fix problem with currenct kernel? If i modify it while being created via aur helper it will solve problem? Edit: yes, it did in facet. Build correctly.

for updating to version 1.0.2, you should replace "pkgver=1.0.1" with "pkgver=1.0.2" in PKGBUILD

BELiAL commented on 2019-12-26 19:41

this version does not compile against current kernel, you should upgrade to release 1.0.2

Maybe best idea is to depend on v86d and not provide v86d by yourself?

I got the following error when upgrading my AUR packages:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files) v86d: /usr/bin/v86d exists in filesystem (owned by uvesafb-dkms) v86d: /usr/lib/initcpio/hooks/v86d exists in filesystem (owned by uvesafb-dkms) v86d: /usr/lib/initcpio/install/v86d exists in filesystem (owned by uvesafb-dkms) v86d: /usr/lib/modprobe.d/uvesafb.conf exists in filesystem (owned by uvesafb-dkms) Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

The problem was that I had v86d installed.

v86d has a dependency on uvesafb-dkms but uvesafb-dkms (now?) also provides v86d. (I assume that uvesafb-dkms changed recently to also provide v86d.)

Uninstalling v86d and upgrading uvesafb-dkms seems to have fixed the problem. At least the v86d command is still available after that.

I'm getting the following error: loading out-of-tree module taints kernel. Getting VBE info block failed (eax=0x4f00, err=1) ube_init() failed with -22 probe of uvesafb.0 failed with error -22

I installed this package, did the checks in the wiki and ran mkinitcpio without any warnings. Graphics driver is i915 for Intel onboard graphics and nouveau for NVIDIA GP107M.

The real question here, is why does this have a versioned dependency on dkms?

Thank you very much!

@karl_gerh - yeah. tested it. the dkms-sorted maintainer needs to change conflicts to replaces for dkms in his PKGBUILD. so actually, dkms-sorted doesn;t play nicely with uvesafb-dkms, or any other package with a dkms dependency for that matter. ;-)
