It is fixed with version 0.12.3, but the version isn't available yet (because no git tag/github release)

As Friz64 said, the *-git package loads on the latest kernel.

v4l2loopback has been broken since kernel 5.4+, there is currently a fix on github (, we will just have to wait until it's merged

@sleeping did you recently upgrade your kernel modules and didn't reboot after? Then try to reboot.

kernel 5.0 deprecates do_gettimeofday, which breaks v0.11.0. v0.12.1 is needed to be compatible with 5.0.

This really needs a quick version bump to 0.12.1. New md5 is 96b1565e18cd0c573e494d2b37eb9385.

@j605: Thanks. I got it working by installing the Git pkg version and changing to build from master. Both packages should be updated hopefully, and I hope to see more support for virtual capture support in official packages or kernel.

Can you include this patch( in case upstream doesn't make a release. It is needed to make the module compile for 4.15

j605 commented on 2017-12-29 11:15

Install file is unnecessary due to pacman hooks for dkms.
