Bug Description


Currently the DKMS package fails to install on supported custom
kernels that are based on 4.15. That includes the current 4.15
hwe-edge and some of the custom and cloud kernels as well.

[Test Case]

Install the oss4-dkms package with the 4.15 hwe-edge kernel. The
package installation should proceed without any errors.

[Regression Potential]

Although new patches were added, the regression risk is very low since
the new changes are conditionally compiled based on the kernel

Besides that, the new package was tested with the following kernels in
an amd64 environment:

- linux-generic 4.4
- linux-hwe 4.13
- linux-hwe-edge 4.15
- linux-azure 4.15

[Original Description]

Testing failed on:

This debdiff looks good. There's no origin in the patch but it is inherited from newer releases and the patch didn't have an origin listed there. The versioning string is goofy due to the previous upload but that's not your fault. I've slightly adjusted the version. :)

I've sponsored the upload to xenial-proposed. Thanks!

Hello Marcelo, or anyone else affected,

Accepted oss4 into xenial-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/oss4/4.2-build2010-5ubuntu1~16.04.2 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation on how to enable and use -proposed.Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested and change the tag from verification-needed-xenial to verification-done-xenial. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-xenial. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance!

Indeed, generally we block on missing essential DEP3 headers but for fixes like these we tend to just get those in as-is.

I have tested the version 4.2-build2010-5ubuntu1~16.04.2 and the DKMS package successfully builds and loads on kernels 4.15, which was the issue reported in this bug.

I also have run the ADT tests for the following kernels to ensure there's no regressions:

- linux-generic 4.4
- linux-hwe 4.15
- linux-azure-edge 4.15
