Hello cro,
You should consider switching to
I'll drop this PKGBUILD support as it is no longer necessary.

I have problems on each kernel update because module build process only works for currently running kernel.
Please add a patch to the package that changes the Makefile like the following to make the build process with dkms independent of version of the running kernel:

< KDIR := /lib/modules/$(shell uname -r)/build
> KVERSION ?= $(shell uname -r)
> KDIR := /lib/modules/$(KVERSION)/build

Tuxedo driver is more recent than clevo-wmi. Actually it's the same but the support was removed for some devices. That's why I kept clevo-wmi in AUR.

DKMS versions are for those who want to use DKMS ( If you use the DKMS daemon, it will automatically recompile the module when you update your kernel. For non-DKMS versions, you should recompile your module manually when you update your kernel.

Hi. There are now 4 packages concerning the clevo wmi module in AUR and it is not obvious to me how they differ. Could you explain?
