I am not quite sure what exactly is going on (let you know if I find time to debug), but I had to manually remove the dkms module (dkms remove) and could then build and dkms install from the source directory manually. Sounds like the paths in the .install file are maybe wrong...

This fails to install for me. pacman output:

Anyone know what is going on?

Please change linux-headers from a make dep to a runtime dependency. When linux-headers gets uninstalled after build, this hook in dkms is run: dkms remove v4l2loopback/<version> -k <kernel> and undoes the install. At least that's what I think happens, maybe I'm wrong.

zootboy, it already conflict with v4l2loopback-dkms.
danger89, update or change your mirrors, also the name of the package is linux-headers not linux419-headers.

danger89 commented on 2018-12-02 20:47

Getting 'linux419-headers-4.19.4-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz' from mirror.0x.sg is failed.

It can not find the linux header from some mirror.

zootboy commented on 2018-03-21 22:23

This should also conflict with v4l2loopback-dkms, not just v4l2loopback.

@Redi, works reasonably well and better than the stable version.

Redi commented on 2017-06-07 09:20

Does anybody knows how stable this is? The non-git version of this package is outdated for quite a while. Can I use this one instead or is the git version too unstable?

hipersayan_x commented on 2016-11-17 14:19

juancarlospaco, this usually happens if you upgrade the kernel without restarting the computer, before building v4l2loopback. Other reason could be that the repository was not cloned properly.

If that's not the case let me know.
