I don't use this anymore so if it's outdated or anything feel free to flag it out of date so I can update it! Before you compile make sure you're running the latest kernel

Its out of date, alright. How to compile it??

Here's updated PKGBUILD and install script. I have no permission to this repo so I'm posting it here. Hope it helps!

The module doesn't compile under linux 5.0. I have fixed the problem here, and you may use this patch directly.

Please update soon because ArchLinux kernel already goes 5.0.x

Instead of the following line in the PKGBUILD: MODPATH="/usr/lib/modules/extramodules-$(uname -r | sed 's/.[0-9]+-[0-9]+//')"

This should be used instead, to allow for the module installation to work properly: MODPATH="/usr/lib/modules/extramodules-$(uname -r | sed 's/.*-//g')"

The droidcam.install file also needs modifying here: _extramodules="extramodules-$(uname -r | cut -f-2 -d'.')-$(uname -r|sed -e 's/.*-//g')"

To be replaced instead with: _extramodules="extramodules-$(uname -r | sed 's/.*-//g')"

This should get the proper name without including the version.

as for kernel 4.18, the PKGBUILD needs a slight change to fix error: cat: /usr/lib/modules/extramodules-4.18-zen/version: No such file or directory that file is currently in /usr/lib/modules/extramodules-zen/

So version numbers got dropped from folder name

Please make sure you reboot if you have updated your kernel.

Ah great! I actually have to do a few things more than that but it should be straightforward thanks!

Issue has been resolved on this project's Git: Just need a package update for the new md5sums.
