This broke the PKGBUILD script triggering the error check in line 74. Add "rm" below line 69 as quickfix.

Looks like the following commit should resolve the 5.5 issue:

I was able to compile it by removing all the patches from PKGBUILD and using the main git tree.

To summarize, how to build on the 5.5 kernel, but not on the 5.4 kernel or earlier:

1) mkdir and cd to a custom build directory.

2) Manually download the PKGBUILD and the two patch files, and rename the PKKBUILD:

3) Edit the evdi-all-in-one-fixes.patch and delete the whole first diff, for travis.yml.

4) Edit the PKGBUILD -

A) comment-out the following lines, as these files do not exist:
install=${pkgname}.install and

B) Add the line, under "source=(":

C) Delete the trailing right-parenthesis after the line "#'relro.patch'". The parser fails with the intervening comment, and no, that is not a trailing forward-slash, as was mistakenly stated in an earlier comment.

D) Modify the Integrity checks for the modified source line:

5) Finally, try building with:
makepkg -Csi

I can also confirm breakage on kernel 4.19.101-1-lts, as well as properly building by removing the .travis portion of evdi-all-in-one-fixes.patch.

Update: With latest kernel (5.5), this build is broken.

Add this patch:

And modify the evdi-all-in-one-fixes.patch to exclude the .travis file (it is irrelevant to the build, but breaks the patching process currently).

makepkg is failing because of that trailing / in the git+https URI (L24 of PKGBUILD) to the official vcs

depends=linux-headers doesn't work. All it guarantees is that you have headers for the latest linux, not the headers for whatever linux is booted. My linux-lts packages are fixed to provide=linux-headers but some do not.

For anyone still looking for an answer to @noraj and @bungeye's problem below, the solution is to install the linux-headers package. This should be added to the PKGBUILD as a dependency to prevent other people from having this issue in the future.

bungeye commented on 2019-02-09 05:27

just a bump for @noraj's issue to see if anyone has a fix. Just installed Arch and trying to get this set up. I'm having the exact same error. Apologies if this is a rookie mistake.
