(4.14.5+) Because Arch itself has dropped i686 support, I have removed i686 from the PKGBUILD and there is no config file either.

If you don't want to compile this package yourself, I am providing the package on my repo [1].

Looks like recompiling this package did the trick for me.

I'm having problems with nvidia-dkms and this package:

==> dkms install nvidia/396.24 -k 4.17.3-1-vfio Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 4.17.3-1-vfio (x86_64) Consult /var/lib/dkms/nvidia/396.24/build/make.log for more information.

I'm not sure when the problems started happening, but it's probably started within the last week. Anyone else having issues with nvidia drivers failing to install for this kernel lately?

I'm trying to get operational again by trying combinations of different kernel and nvidia versions. Still no luck yet.

DocMAX: That line appears to be doing a job. Removing it would make me feel uneasy and without further information, I will not remove it.

You are free to do so when you build it though. The details of that reddit post also show that the person was using an Atom/Pentium/Celeron with a possible ACS cap and that line should absolutely not be removed.

If you want to discuss it with me further, I'd recommend turning to email and contacting me directly, especially if you have more information that will change my mind.

Could you remove the line described here?:

markzz commented on 2018-05-30 23:33

I'll add it soon then.

This patch was needed to enable ACS override on my machine using an i7-7260U

@Fleetscut ...damn TNX. Im a noob in linux so I was stuck thinking that was a nvidia problem. After the last gcc-8.1.0 I wasn't able to reinstall the nvidia-dkms module. By the way the virtual machine and the pci pass through worked fine, was only the host to have a 800x600 resolution ^_^ For the moment ill blacklist the new gcc.

i cant seem to build this kernel with gcc-8.1.0. i keep getting a message that mv cannot stat the temp directory that is being used to build. happens no matter where i point the build directory. i had to downgrade to my last version of gcc to get it to work.

When you build this PKGBUILD, you will get the three packages. As for how pacaur or ANY other aur helper works, I cannot say.

Does the kernel need to be rebuilt to install linux-vfio-headers? For example, I run pacaur -S linux-vfio, it compiles and installs the kernel. Then I run pacaur -S linux-vfio-headers, it compiles the kernel again before installing the headers. Aren't the headers just extracted from the tarball?
