I just realized the PKGBUILD is right. It's the uname version that's being reported wrong. Just updated today.

[parker@stealth ~]$ pacman -Q linux-git
linux-git 5.2rc5.r239.g241e39004581-1
[parker@stealth ~]$ uname -a
Linux stealth 5.2.0-rc5-g29f785ff76b6 #2 SMP PREEMPT Thu Jun 20 13:49:19 EDT 2019 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Why does a fresh build of this also report ga3b22b9f11d9?

5.2.0-rc5-ga3b22b9f11d9

The PKGBUILD is 5.0rc7 and the same commit hash

Those of you requesting checkout of the src not a git clone, I urge you to make noise about https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/34677 instead of bugging this poor maintainer it should be solved systemwide not on a per package basis

I think a lot of people use this as a base to do custom kernel builds (different configs)... would you consider adding either conditionals to the cp includes or adding a || : to suppress errors, or maybe something like.

cd $srcdir/$pkgname; cp -a include/*/.h --parents -t $builddir/maybe/usr/lib/

I used the make localmodconfig to generate a config, and it does not have any dvb etc includes and dies during package()

Could you change line 62 from

make olddefconfig

to

yes '' | make olddefconfig

so that i can automate building this package

sarvex, there are other packages to fulfill this role, this package is for users who want to build a specific git-version.

Cloning the git repository for building the kernel is a huge waste of bandwidth.

It would be far more efficient to use the mainline compressed tar from the website

Hi,

I maintain a couple packages whose based on this one... and I have a minor problem I haven't been able to solve. On GRUB, the kernels from this pakage and the ones based on it all show up the same, as "git" rather than a more informative name.

Where does that "git" come from? I haven't been able to find it to change it to something else... maybe it's obvious and I'm blind, though xD
