Looks like something changed regarding dkms packages since 4.5, but it *did* build okay for me. What issue did you get?

A.J commented on 2016-03-22 03:53

doesn't build correctly after kernel update .

EDIT : apparently it is a known issue with kernel 4.5 .

Ah, for some reason PKGBUILD had all permissions removed, so chmod u+rw worked.

I get

==> ERROR: Failed to source /home/trusktr/aur/bcwc-pcie-git/bcwc-pcie-git/PKGBUILD

Please add 'cpio' as a dependency, without it we're unable to extract the firmware.
