Bevan: I have to wake-up for missing the dot, thanks for spotting it. Now the dkms install -m openafs... does it.

Unfortunately this is the only dkms module package I install myself that I am aware of (when checking source tree location mentionned in /etc/dkms it points to /usr/src, which only contains openafs, as does /var/lib/dkms as well).

RobvW: The second issue is caused by missing dot in the version number. It is 1.8.0 and not 1.80.

Thanks for testing the hook. My only guess right now is that it could be a side effect caused by this change:

That will be difficult to debug without the ability to reproduce it here... Do you have any other dkms module packages installed?

update after intslling latest kernel on my last machine:

  • /bin/bash /usr/lib/dkms/alpm-hook install doesn't do anything (just runs endlessly without completing)
  • sudo dkms install -m openafs -v 1.80 -k 4.17.2-1-ARCH now fails with: Error! Could not find module source directory. Directory: /usr/src/openafs-1.80 does not exist.

N.B. openafs and openafs-dkms-modules are each rebuild and installed.

Since I cannot reproduce the issue on my side I rely on information given to me. Can you provide the information I asked for in my last comment and try the given command?

PS: I just saw that you are referring to 4.17. So another chance for me to reproduce...

PPS: Sorry, I still cannot reproduce the issue.

On latest kernel (4.17) it still doesn't build the module (failed on 3 of my installations).

Presently the solution by drsmlr dkms install -m openafs -v 1.80 -k 4.17...-ARCH temporarily solves the installation.

drslmr: It still works for me. Was there no DKMS output at all on your last kernel update or did the build fail? If this problem occurs again, could you please try to manually run the following command?

/bin/bash /usr/lib/dkms/alpm-hook install

This is what automatically should be triggered by a kernel update.

PS: Just for the record. The above command should instead be

echo usr/src/openafs-1.8.0/dkms.conf|sudo /bin/bash /usr/lib/dkms/alpm-hook install

The modules are not build automatically anymore when calling pacman -Syu. I manually now have to do:

source /usr/share/bash-completion/completions/dkms
dkms install -m openafs -v 1.8.0 -k 4.16.13-2-ARCH

sorry, my bad here

flex is part of the base-devel group which is expected to be installed by every AUR user and should not be included in makedepends:

capitalaslash commented on 2017-03-07 15:37

the package is missing the flex builddepend
