dkms in testing now take care of dependencies and exclusions. It should replaces this package. You are invited to test it and to report bugs (via

I plan to remove this on when the package will reach [extra].

@swordfeng: I tried to reproduce, but couldn't. No idea what I ran into yesterday. Sorry for the hassle.

@solnce It's strange. The dkms commands should always be printed before they are executed. Sorry I have no time to investigate the case in recent several weeks. But it would help a lot if you could provide an exact procedure to reproduce the issue, along with your kernel, spl and zfs versions. Thanks!

There is a small bug, seemingly related to the ordering mechanism.

When I update my kernel, at first dkms removes the old spl and zfs modules ( dkms remove spl/0.7.9 ...., dkms remove zfs/0.7.9 ...). But when it comes to generating the new modules, sometimes it omits printing the "dkms install zfs/0.7.9 ..." line, although it actually generates the zfs modules. This is a bit confusing. Can this be fixed? Thanks!

Works now, thank you very much!

@karl_gerh Hi, thanks for your suggestion! However, replaces should not be used because it indicates the original package is no longer maintained and will be removed in the future, which is not the case.

I tried addressing your issue by adding the version to the provides. Please inform me if it still does not work.

could you replace conflicts=('dkms') with replaces=('dkms') in PKGBUILD for this package?

At the moment it is not possible to install some packages like uvesafb-dkms if dkms-sorted is installed. See here for details:
