evdi-dkms would better represent the packages name

I'm facing an issue with kernel 5.1, line 45 of evdi_drv has an issue for incompatible pointer type.

vm_fault_t ()(struct vm_fault ) {aka unsinge int ()(struct vm_fault )} from incompatible pointer type 'int ()(struct vm_fault )

Linux headers are installed

I have confirmed this package compiles properly on the 5.0 kernel (standard and -ck kernel). Please make sure you have the kernel headers installed. Also, marking a package out of date is only appropriate when the upstream has released a new version. That is not that case with evdi at this point.

Works fine over here. Do you have the linux-headers package installed?

Fails to build latest kernel.

Your kernel headers for kernel 5.0.0-arch1-1-ARCH cannot be found at /usr/lib/modules/5.0.0-arch1-1-ARCH/build or /usr/lib/modules/5.0.0-arch1-1-ARCH/source.

error: command failed to execute correctly

You can ignore that error, it's always done that. The module still gets built and still works.

I will be doing some higher-level maintenance of the PKGBUILD at some point to get rid of some of these errors.

install of evdi seems correct now https://pastebin.com/qcgxTX1D

BUT in reality the build failed:

Something like:

ERROR: Kernel configuration is invalid.
include/generated/autoconf.h or include/config/auto.conf are missing.
Run 'make oldconfig && make prepare' on kernel src to fix it.

I uploaded a new release to fix building in 4.20 kernels. The error in make.log related to something removed in 4.20 (https://github.com/torvalds/linux/commit/04cfcc7ab358e331b32cabde1e853a125f3f8735#diff-43768cc89c01c730cb119634b42dfa81).

The functionality wasn't apparently stable enough to be worthwhile. Removing it should have no effect on kernels < 4.20 either.

evdi 1.5.1 is not building for 4.20.0 (manjaro) and maybe 4.19.12 (manjaro).

PS : /var/lib/dkms/evdi/1.5.1/build/make.log doesn't exist

I needed to install linux-headers (Possibly should add as a dependency)
