The known issue installing dkms packages seams to has been fixed:

There is a known issue when installing any dkms package via Aura. See Please build and install this package manually or use a different AUR helper.

@drslmr: I just notice that you are still running kernel 5.6.11-arch1. That one was still built with GCC 9. This package expects that GCC 10 is used and that may only work when your kernel was also built with GCC 10 (i.e., at least 5.6.11-arch3).

Edit: This is probably not the issue. It's aura. See the pinned comment.

@Bevan unfortunately my log file is gone now. But from what I remember it was like that, yes. And I have it on two different computers, but similar archlinux update.

@drslmr: So the /var/lib/dkms/openafs/1.8.6pre2/build/make.log for you also stops with configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables?

I get the same error:

==> dkms install openafs/1.8.6pre2 -k 5.6.11-arch1-1
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 5.6.11-arch1-1 (x86_64)
Consult /var/lib/dkms/openafs/1.8.6pre2/build/make.log for more information.
I had the same issue as reported by kgizdov before.

I'm using aura.

But using:

sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/openafs-modules-dkms-1.8.6pre2-2 x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

@Bevan, not sure what the problem was, since I can build and install the dkms module by manually building it as root. Meaning the configure and build step succeed with root account and GCC 10. However, it was not working until today's update - which did not have anything to do with GCC, dkms or kernal at all. Anyway, it works now for no apparent reason.

kgizdov: Interesting. It looks like your GCC cannot find its own cc1 binary when called by dkms. Kind of similar to what has been described by another person at

Is your system fully up-to-date? Are you using packages from testing? For me it works with dkms 2.8.1-3, in testing there is a different version.

however, if I run the configure step in the DKMS config manually, it succeeds.

@fepf: linux-headers is only the correct choice if you use the linux package from the repositories. But there are also the LTS and the ZEN kernels + several others here in AUR. The dkms package already has all of the linux-*-headers packages as optional dependencies which is why I did not include them as optional dependency here.
