Here is a fixed PKGBUILD that doesn't use sudo:

I'm sorry but it's not right to run sudo (or write to the root system) from within the build step, it's expected that you can build an Arch linux package as a normal user (assuming all deps are installed).

You should be able to install a symlink in the package function which references $pkgdir/usr/... instead of doing it as root in the build function (or something along those lines).

Symbolic link moved into the build script. If your build fails, the links are not deleted I think, so be aware of this. I left it intentionally so the script will not try to delete the links if you fail to create them in the first place, like you don't have the right version of vbox dkms.

Some directory changed in the latest virtualbox dkms version.
I wont change anything until 5.0.16 is out, so to build right now add a symbolic link before building like ln -s /usr/src/vboxhost-5.0.14_OSE /usr/src/vboxhost-5.0.14 and the same for vboxguest

Short lived patch, now 5.0.14 is out so everything is fine again.

SBeaver commented on 2016-01-26 20:59

Added a patch that uses lnkops.c from 5.0.14 vboxguest dkms to make it build with 4.5 rcs. It apperas to work normally again with this added.

4.5rc does not play with modules 5.0.12 apparently so it wont build at the moment. I may make a temporary patch until 5.0.14 reaches us if it's not too much work. If you need vbox modules, stay on 4.4 kernel for now.

Note that 5.0.10-1 now requires linux-mainline 4.4rc1-2 or later.
I don't know how to enforce this so make sure you update linux-mainline first or this package will not build.

Below comment should be fixed now. virtualbox-host-dkms is now patched when building.

There is an error in two files where the return value of a call to kernel function misc_deregister() is read, but this function is a void function.
I remove the reading of the return code and the compare of it and compiled and it seems to work. Please fix or forward to the maintainer.
