Hi @Omar007. Now that the MinGW cross-compiler toolchain mingw-w64-gcc and all it's dependencies are available in the community repo, you might want to consider adding building the looking-glass Windows host executable to this package.

Ah that explains @rku's comment haha. I was looking at that from the perspective of what the module 'package' does without realizing an extra file was added that is needed for even DKMS to be able do its thing after the package is installed.

Pushing an update shortly.

You forgot to add kvmfr.h into dkms package

    for f in {Makefile,dkms.conf,kvmfr.c,kvmfr.h}; do
        install -Dm644 "${f}" "${pkgdir}/usr/src/${pkgbase}-${pkgver}/${f}"

The build and packaging of the c-host was removed already but I'll take out the patch as well. No point in keeping that fix around either if it won't build anyway.

New version will be up in a few minutes.

Since today, I can't build this package. I get this error:

can't find file to patch at input line 5
Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
The text leading up to this was:
|diff --git a/c-host/platform/Linux/capture/XCB/src/xcb.c b/c-host/platform/Linux/capture/XCB/src/xcb.c
|index 3914de3..e779691 100644
|--- a/c-host/platform/Linux/capture/XCB/src/xcb.c
|+++ b/c-host/platform/Linux/capture/XCB/src/xcb.c

It looks like c-host got renamed to host:

@rku: I feel like you're hard-compiling the module for your specific kernel then. Taking that route is up to you but be aware that any kernel change may brake it without warning. You'll have to rebuild it yourself.

If you're using this properly, the module is build automatically with DKMS so that it is available for every kernel you have installed and is automatically rebuild when installing, upgrading or downgrading a kernel.

I had to include kvmfr.h along with kvmfr.c for this module to build.

I've updated the dependency and removed the Linux c-host for now. Unless it gets dropped completely, I will re-add it once it gets a fix.

@evelyn: I don't think there is much I can do about that. Based on my automated build reports the c-host has been broken for about 3 weeks now. From what I can tell there is no Linux platform implementation (time.c) for said lgCreateTimer/lgTimerDestroy functions upstream, only for the Windows platform. Hence the undefined reference error; only a header exists but no implementation. I've not had the time to dive deeper into this yet sadly.

@Netboy3: You are right. I did add it for the build (makedepends) but it seems I'd forgotten/neglected to also put it into the depends. I suspect you are the first to notice this since the change was made and it's been like this for quite a while now xD

I'm hoping to pick this up upcoming weekend, worst case the one after.
