Hmm, this seems to be broken against kernel 4.15.1-2-ARCH, no upstream patches that I can see. I'll see if I can turn up a fix.

@amish, nope. Your usage is very uncommon. Make packets for yourself as you wish.

@k0ste thank you for the update.

However problem here is that I have both lts as well normal linux kernel installed (Because thats what arch recommends. Incase anything goes wrong with one kernel you have another bootable kernel)

If I makepkg twice - one for lts and one for ARCH then there are some files common to both the packages and creates conflict. Is there any solution to it?

Like common files in separate package and kernel modules separate? So then I can makepkg twice but common package I will install once. And then install both kernel pacakges.

Thanks in advance.

@amish I added another variable. Try to define this in PKGBUILD and .install script.

Oh correct. Is there anyway you can add support for LTS kernel too? (without breaking things?)

I have Linux as well as LTS kernel. Earlier I used dkms AUR package but it seems its no more maintained.

Not true. If kernel is upgraded and not rebooted, for example from 4.5.1 to 4.5.2 then "defaults" try to build over 4.5.1 - and build will failed.

There is no need to detect and specify "_kernver" / --with-kbuild.

Detecting kernel version via pacman -Ql is kind of unwanted hack. It defaults to current running kernel anyway.

This way if I am using LTS kernel it will automatically build for LTS kernel.

Forgot push commit. Now install on 4.7.0-1 okay.

Depmod step in install stage failed with linux 4.7.0-1-ARCH.
In xtables-addons.install, I replaced :

kernver="`pacman -Qe linux | awk '{print $2"-ARCH"}'`"


kernver="`pacman -Ql linux | awk -F'/' '/(\/modules\/)([0-9.-])+-ARCH\/$/ {print $5}'`"

to get it to succeed.
