This package isn't building with the uploaded PKGBUILD:
-> Skipping tree update...
sed: can't read scripts/depmod.sh: No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
Aborting...

Why isn't the PKGBUILD posted two comments ago uploaded?

While at it, using the PKGBUILD from pastebin, may I give a few improvement suggestions:

- Why does this package request user interaction?
My build stopped at "Press ENTER if you want to build the kernel or CTRL+C to abort". I don't think that question adds any value to the build process. Also this requires me to sit in front of my PC when building this (one can't build it automatically or just run makepkg and go grab coffee).

- This PKGBUILD could be updated to meet the VCS PKGBUILD Guidelines, there's a template for git packages at:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/VCS_PKGBUILD_Guidelines#A_sample_Git_PKGBUILD
the prepare() PKGBUILD function could be used to do the rest of stuff in fetch_sources.

- This is more questionable but couldn't it just try to borrow the -ARCH config and do oldconfig or zcat /proc/config.gz > .config as fallback instead of failing if I don't provide a .config in the PKGBUILD directory?

- In my opinion, mentioning yaourt in the package description is poor practice, that whole second sentence doesn't seem necessary.

- namcap throws some warnings:
PKGBUILD (linux-next) E: Split PKGBUILD needs additional makedepends ['kmod', 'linux-firmware', 'mkinitcpio'] to work properly
PKGBUILD (linux-next) E: File referenced in $startdir
PKGBUILD (linux-next) I: Missing Contributor tag
PKGBUILD (linux-next) W: Description should not contain the package name.

@denspirit: Would you like to adopt this package?

Made this PKGBUILD work in half of a day.
Essential variables $_builddir and $_sourcedir contain empty values, because of inexistense of $srcdir and $pkgdir before build() starts.
I am posting my edited version of PKGBUILD, but it contains lots of dirty hacks to get everything working by now, and .install and .preset files are unmodified.

It is in line 75 of the PKGBUILD file

Erm...can you look in the source directory and tell me where depmod.sh is, please? The full path relative to $(SRCDIR)

cant install kernel get following error message
-> Skipping tree update...

Pretty sure that one was owned, but not updated when I created this one. If a TU wants to delete the other one and rename this one, that's fine.
