Doesn't appear to build, at least on my system.

Instead, build but don't install both packages. Then install both packages at the same time w/ pacman.

If anyone runs into an issue where zfs-dkms and zfs-utils cannot be updated due to zfs-dkms being locked to a version of zfs-utils, you can fix it by removing the zfs-dkms package first, updating zfs-utils, then re-installing zfs-dkms.

I had to downgrade gcc to 10.2.0-6 to get the modules to build for zfs-2.0.5 & 2.1.0

gcc-11 should be working in the next zfs release:

Nice speech. Totally irrelevant though.

When I say I'm not going to apply the patch, what I mean is I can't. If you try applying it, you'll find out why you can't either.

To save you the time, I'll tell you the error message you'd get.

Reversed (or previously applied) patch detected! Assume -R? [n]

P.S. check the author of that PR, then check the commit message for the latest version of this PKGBUILD.

Please apply this patch

I don't know if it was just me beeing stupid, or if it is a thing, but I downgraded the kernel to 5.11 on a new machine to install zfs-dkms 2.0.4 and I all the time got the error "make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop." during the dkms install. Solution (for me) was to downgrade gcc (to e.g. 10.2.0). And then the dkms install worked as always.

btw: Thank you very much for maintaining the package! Appreciate the effort!

@iusrlinearb: The patches in the recent PKGBUILD update make it compatible, they're backported from master, so it is compatible. But once zol does the same thing and releases 2.0.5, it'll be official and also compatible.

iusrlinearb commented on 2021-05-07 06:37

For clarity, although there is mention of 5.12 in the patches, 2.0.4-2 isn't 5.12 compatible yet and it'll be a future release once ZOL officially supports?

There's an open PR in my PKGBUILDs repo to add a couple of backports from the zfs master branch. This will hopefully be resolved soon.
