Custom kernel like to package virtualbox host modules without dkms

I run a custom kernel and want to learn how I can package virtualbox host modules for it but without using dkms. Is there an example PKGBUILD I can adapt? The AUR has dkms depends.

Re: Custom kernel like to package virtualbox host modules without dkms

My first thought was to look at  virtualbox-host-modules-arch , but that also uses dkms during build .

Since the vbox kernel modules are out-of-tree[1] , you'll need extra steps to include them in a kernel build.

ZFS faces similar issues, check packages like https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/zfs-linux/ .
Also Ubuntu claims to support ZFS out-of-the-box , maybe they have kernels with virtualbox built-in .
