@drankinatty, those are test builds which I don't want to support because of their impact on the stability.

If you want to experiment with those builds you can use the package virtualbox-ext-oracle-5-test-build, but don't expect it to be up to date, the build number already changed to 135314.

Here is the current PKGBUILD for Oracle Testcase build for Linux 5.4

# Maintainer: pappy <pappy _AT_ a s c e l i o n _DOT_ com>
pkgdesc='Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack 5.x'
conflicts=(virtualbox-ext-oracle virtualbox-ext-oracle-5.0)
# source=("$pkgver/Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-$pkgver.vbox-extpack")
# noextract=("Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-$pkgver.vbox-extpack")

prepare() {
        # shrink uneeded cpuarch
        [[ -d shrunk ]] || mkdir shrunk
        tar xfC "Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-$pkgver-${_build}.vbox-extpack" shrunk
        # tar xfC "Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-$pkgver.vbox-extpack" shrunk
        rm -r shrunk/{darwin*,solaris*,win*}
        tar -c --gzip --file shrunk.vbox-extpack -C shrunk .

package() {
        optdepends=('rdesktop: client to connect vm via RDP')
        install -Dm 644 shrunk.vbox-extpack \
                # "$pkgdir/usr/share/virtualbox/extensions/Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-$pkgver.vbox-extpack"
        install -Dm 644 shrunk/ExtPack-license.txt \

It will build fine after you build and install the virtualbox-bin-5 current building for the Oracle Testcase as well

Current testcase will support the Linux 5.4 kernel:

Now with computed $pkgver...

Ah, I'll have to see what there is new :) 5.2.30 is out now, I updated virtualbox-bin-5, and rebuilt this with mods to this PKGBUILD. 5.2.30 supports the new Linux 5.1 kernel.

@drankinatty, that's not enough, there is more :)

pkgver=5.2.28 sha256sums=('376e07cbf2ff2844c95c800346c8e4697d7bc671ae0e21e46153b2e7b4ccc1d6')

are the only changes needed.

I have packaged 'virtualbox-bin-5' with 5.2.26 to correspond to this package. 5.2.26 supports the 5.0 kernel and will be supported through 2020.
