jyc: Thanks for the fix. I added it to the PKGBUILD.

I had the same issue as jyc reported. Jyc's workaround is working.

This fails to build for me with the following error:

cp: Cannot stat 'arch//Makefile': No such file or directory.

What am I missing?

jyc commented on 2015-11-19 03:27

I had an error where a package conflict occurred because the following files were included in both the -doc and -header package:


This is due to line 226 copying any file with Kconfig in its name.
A workaround is just to add right after that the following line:

rm "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/modules/${_kernver}/build/Documentation/kbuild"/Kconfig.*-*

This removes the extraneous files that look like Kconfig files but are actually just documentation.

Some kind requests and a question:
- Please update config{,.x86_64} files to latest in core/linux (this package: "Linux/x86 4.2.0-2 Kernel Configuration", core/linux: "Linux/x86 4.2.3-1 Kernel Configuration")
- Please add git to makedepends, to make `makepkg -s` happy.
- Why also use "replaces=" in package functions? Why not rely on just "conflicts="/"provides="?

For those of us having nvidia build issues:

diff --git a/kernel/workqueue.c b/kernel/workqueue.c

and edit PKGBUILD:

# Nvidia Patch
# the main kernel config files
'config' 'config.x86_64'
# standard config files for mkinitcpio ramdisk


pkgver() {
cd "${_srcname}"

git describe --long | sed -E sed -E 's/^v//;s/([^-]*-g)/r\1/;s/-/./g;s/\.rc/rc/'

Please use google mirror!

ZeroBit commented on 2015-05-23 06:42

Is it possible to have linux-git 4.1rc4 ?

Boohbah commented on 2015-04-14 22:17

hobarrera: The mirror works for me and others, but if you'd like then you can clone the repo from github and change the URL after using 'git remote set-url origin'

mrlouhibi: I don't get the same error. If you're using packer as AUR helper, see this

Tazmain: The full repo is 1.2 GB. The pacman developers have already said they won't implement shallow git clones in makepkg.

Tazmain commented on 2015-04-13 13:35

Seems like this is not doing a shallow copy of the git repo and a full clone making it around 2.6 gb download ?
