It is pointed to 4.12.8-1 when the title and current linux package are 4.12.8-2. Can you correct this please?

New packages with OpenZFS 0.7.0 support have been pushed to the archzfs repo for linux and linux-lts kernels

However, the PKGBUILDs for spl-linux and zfs-linux have been changed to split packages and I cannot upload the updated PKGBUILDS to AUR until the (spl|zfs)-${KERNEL}-headers repos are removed by the admins.

A new stable release of OpenZFS version is out, but it does not address the gcc 7.1.1 build errors. These packages will remain out-of-date until a stable release of OpenZFS is made fixing the gcc build issues. That might take some time. Until then, if anyone really needs to update their kernel, use the archzfs-git packages.

This package cannot be updated for kernel 4.9 until the ZFS on Linux project makes a new stable release that supports kernel 4.9.

Does not currently build

Package update cannot be made currently. See pinned comment at

To anyone else who checked here to find out why their system no longer updates, first read demizer's comment below.

This forum post elaborates more on the steps to safely transition to the new repository:

For me, updating caused my pools to fail to mount on the next reboot, but re-importing them with the -f flag in the recovery shell seemed to work. I only had to do this once for them to start automatically mounting on boot again.

And as always, back up your data if it is important! This can never be stated enough.

I have a number of breaking changes to report.

The archzfs-git group is dead! It has been renamed to "archzfs-linux"

See the comments on this page for an explanation as to why.

also, the demz-repo-core repository has been moved to

I am waiting for AUR volunteers to merge this the archzfs-git packages into the archzfs-linux packages.

Sorry for the inconvenience these changes may have caused. I don't anticipate having to do this ever again. These changes will allow me to support more non-standard kernels in the future!

Dependency issue on linux/linux-headers?

First check that the latest linux and linux-headers version matches what the latest spl-git/zfs-git is targeting (4.4.3-1 at the time of writing this), if it does then type:

pacman -Sdd linux

Then don't forget to update from AUR (I use yaourt -Syu). spl-git/spl-utils-git/zfs-git/zfs-utils-git should compile. If the kernel doesn't match you will have to wait or pacman -Sdd each target (spl-git, etc) separately and hope it compiles/works fine.

On install I get the following error:
sed: can't read /tmp/pacaurtmp-istvan/spl-git/pkg/spl-git/usr/src/spl-*/4.2.5-1-ARCH/Module.symvers: No such file or directory
