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.

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

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.

hipersayan_x commented on 2021-08-11 13:19 (UTC)

Ok, if v4l2loopback-dkms adds that field, I will add that field. Take in mind that this package should have the same features as the original package, if v4l2loopback-dkms does not have such field, I can't add it.

Yes, that'd work, but there's another format used for this across other 3rd-party kernel modules. See ksmbd-dkms, ntfs3-dkms etc for example.

@post-factum if linux-pf provides v4l2loopback just put v4l2loopback-dkms in the provides field of linux-pf, that is more than enough to avoid conflicts with this package or v4l2loopback-dkms.

linux-pf is providing this module out of the box, and I'd like to make all the packages that provide the module exposing this information properly.

I'll also work with the v4l2loopback-dkms maintainer for the same.
