Please read the previous comments.
The versions 1.3.42 and 1.3.43 are not stable.

Looks like this is out of date, there is a 1.3.43 release listed here:

Maybe that would build fine?

I can confirm that it does not build against 4.9.6. Here's the error message:

Doesn't seem to work with the latest 4.9.6 kernel updated yesterday

PlusMinus commented on 2017-01-25 13:58

You are right, of course, but the person flagging this out of date could have checked as well.

natzei commented on 2017-01-25 11:10

Hi PlusMinus,
the last update of the package does not work correctly.
The problem is that you are distributing a devel release, as explained in this issue

Please downgrade to the latest master release v1.2.64.
For the future, please check if the release is done under the master branch.

Thank you

They are optional dependencies for dkms, I suppose the reason is that you can have different kernels and therefore can't be sure which headers are needed.

vincele commented on 2016-11-26 08:27

Looks like there's a missing dependency: linux-headers
see last comment on :

Maybe this dep should be added to dkms itself, dunno...

PlusMinus commented on 2016-09-16 08:53

Upstream releases are a little slow. Next time this package breaks I might create an evdi-git package.
