It does work as stated by @Friz64, but you have to use the kernel tag matching the one from your kernel headers.

Assuming you are using the default kernel provided on arch, follow these steps:

  1. Find out your kernel version by running pacman -Qi linux-headers. At the moment of writing this, it's 5.8.1.arch1-1

  2. Edit the PKGBUILD file and change the _kernel_tag variable accordingly. In this case: _kernel_tag=5.8.1-arch1

  3. You may skip updating the checksum of the files by running makepkg --skipchecksums. Up to you.

I had success manually changing PKGBUILD's line 5 to _kernel_tag=5.6.3-arch1 and line 30 to '514eef113fa12f51ecb8cb6651866aa55a5d40b247ae1225d6159f681b5edcd1'.

Needs an update once again for 5.6.x...

@Luk_3D I don't use Manjaro. But I think you need install linux-headers.

==> Unable to install module alx-wol/5 for kernel 5.3.12-1-MANJARO: Missing kernel headers.

Thank you for making it work with kernel 5.x!

niekez commented on 2019-04-21 13:40

It's not out of date, the git on which this is based hasn't been updated

DocMAX commented on 2019-03-19 16:26

Would be great if you can make it work for kernel 5.x.

DocMAX commented on 2019-03-17 09:36

Not working anymore with kernel 5.0
