This is a *-git / devel package, it is always up to date with the main branch of Now is it possible to get the out-of-date flag removed from the package without needing a bump of the pkgrel?

Builds just fine with 6.8 kernel now, just tested.

Is it possible the module this install doesn't get re-installed following a kernel update?

rosenberg commented on 2023-01-08 20:35 (UTC)

Notice this package also provides the controller v4l2loopback-ctl, which is normally provided by v4l2loopback-utils, not by v4l2loopback-dkms.

zdefz, you must send the PR to, if it's a small patch I can apply to the package just give me the diff.

bluetail commented on 2022-09-02 19:44 (UTC)

Please look at There is a patch you may want to push upstream.

meijin commented on 2022-05-15 05:29 (UTC)

I can see this note after latest upgrade:

 7/14) Install DKMS modules
==> dkms install --no-depmod v4l2loopback/0.12.5 -k 5.17.7-arch1-1
Deprecated feature: REMAKE_INITRD
==> depmod 5.17.7-arch1-1

is this fine?

I've had success installing after installing the linux-headers package and using pikaur to install this package.
