Hi cptiglo. I deliberately never did so for different reasons:

1. I probably will never be fast enough in updating the PKGBUILD after a kernel update in the repos.
2. Which kernel should I stick to? That in [core] or that in [testing]?
3. Not every kernel update requires a rebuilt of the modules.

For most people I would recommend the openafs-modules-dkms package. With it, the module is rebuilt after each kernel update automatically, independent of what kernel is installed. Nowadays, dkms is fully supported by Arch and works very well.

Hey Bevan!
What do you think about adding the required kernel-headers version to the PKGBUILD so that updating to a not yet supported kernel version does not silently break openafs-modules.

Nobody denies that... ;-)

Please no "me too" comments. This is an upstream issue. If you need to use OpenAFS you currently need to use linux-lts.

I also confirm that I cannot compile on a fresh (of yesterday!) installation of arch.

@DarioP: This is known but I don't think anyone is currently working on this issue:

I cannot compile on Linux 4.5

There are first reports of data corruption when running OpenAFS on Linux 4.4. The proposed patches should therefore only be considered for testing and debugging and not for actual use in production.

Yes, compiled just fine here. I tested it in my university network; seems to be working fine. (Since loss of data might occur in some error handling, I am not sure about that.)

Sorry, forgot to answer here because it was already discussed for the openafs and openafs-modules-dkms packages. So I'm copy&pasting here:

You can test the proposed patches for Linux 4.4.
Download the corresponding branch of my PKGBUILDs from, enter the openafs-modules folder and run makepkg.

Testing these patches (and providing feedback) would be very helpful in the process of getting these patches included, you should be aware of possible unresolved data loss issues:
This is also the main reason why I did not include the patches here, yet.

Same error here...
