Getting the following error on build :

install: cannot stat 'Documentation/DocBook/Makefile': No such file or directory

Looks like DocBook is no longer present in 4.12

Thanks for the hint! Actually, I got an even more convenient proposal on the forums: However, I get silly config prompts when trying to build the kernel after the first git bisect run (see later posts in the same thread). I suppose that the package should build without user interaction so I must be doing something wrong...

Yes you can:

Instead of specifying the branch, you can specify a specific commit.

I need to bisect the kernel versions to find a bug. Can I somehow use this package in combination with git bisect to do so? Thanks!

However linux-git 4.11 built successsfully, with no HDMI i915 sound.

# Fix file conflict with -doc package
rm "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/modules/${_kernver}/build/Documentation/kbuild"/Kconfig.*-* || true

adding the " || true" on the end, so that the build does not quit with an error.

On 2016-12-20 21:33 I mentioned it doesn't build for me. It seems it's enough to create those directories. See for a patch here:

Unfortunately I've got no idea why this is necessary for me but not for others.

This package fails for me here:
-> Cloning linux git repo...
Cloning into bare repository '/tmp/yaourt-tmp-krash86/aur-linux-git/linux'...
error: RPC failed; HTTP 504 curl 22 The requested URL returned error: 504 Gateway Time-out
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
==> ERROR: Failure while downloading linux git repo

I have traced it to this line in the PKGBUILD file:
Line 17:

If I change that from "git+https" to "git" only then the PKGBUILD works fine.
