It cannot be automated or it's too complicated, since it sends a download link by e-mail with a validity of 5 minutes (!?). Also, adding the source code to the PKGBUILD repository is against good packaging guidelines, if one day you apply to be a trusted user, it will be fingerpointed. ;)

I'm in favor of re-uploading the source code to a git repository on github and tag/sign the new release, or reupload the original tarball elsewhere...

@hcartiaux Thanks for having taken care of this issue. Yes. Ideally, we need to find a way to get the file properly by adding some additional parsing logic to the PKGBUILD. But I don't know if this is possible to have a PKGBUILD without a "source" array statement and getting the file manually from the prepare() function. Maybe indeed this isn't worth the effort this time and hosting the sources elsewhere is best for now. Do you know if this is possible to add the source code directly to this git repo (since this one is still quite small)?

The download link is now temporary (valid for 5 minutes) and can be obtained via a form on the realtek website...

I will have a look, we will probably have to host the file elsewhere.

It seems that driver sources aren't to be found at ?

@hcartiaux Thanks for your comment. I have just added you as co-maintainer and have updated the package.

nixpulvis: I tried your approach but am having difficulty - not sure how to insert the new driver in PKGBUILD . Can you provide some further instructions on how to use the most recent driver. My 8153 is only operating at 100 Mb/s instead of 1000 Mb/s. Will the updated driver fix this?

klingt: I've tried your package, but the URL inside the PKGBUILD seems dead. I've gotten things working by manually downloading the firmware from into the SRCDEST (your AUR repo) and changed the sources to source=('0010-r8152.53-2.10.0.tar.bz2' 'dkms.conf'). Now my Ethernet works! Thank you. commented on 2018-05-14 11:36

I updated the package to use the driver in version 2.10.0:
