acpi_call-git and latest kernel upgrade

Hi,

as you could see reading comments on the acpi_call-git AUR package page, acpi_call-git package is not ready for the latest kernel upgrade.

The fix proposed doesn't work for me, I still get:

==> Checkout completed

any idea on how to fix this?

Re: acpi_call-git and latest kernel upgrade

same problem here.
I 've edited the PKGBUILD git repo with dkao's repo he fixed the build with this commit:
https://github.com/dkao/acpi_call/commi … dccd49caef
Now the module builds, but...

I think the pkgbuild in a bad shape, it isn't installing the kernel module.
I've tried a manual insmod and depmod -a with no luck.
Did something has changed with the module installation procedure using kmod? modules has to be signed or gz compressed?

EDIT:

well I've succeeded.
1) modify git repo to dkao's in git url
2) go to /tmp/yaourt-tmp-user/aur-acpi_call-git/src/acpi_call-build (before merging the package)
3) make install
4) depmod -a
5) turn_off_gpu.sh
