The update to 2.1.6 seems broken to me. The module builds, but the dependency to zfs-utils appears to be pinned to 2.1.5 (unavailable)?

@habys Are you using the LTS kernel? Personally I would definitely do that when it comes to really old hardware (or maybe consider to not even use Arch, but rather Debian or something else extremely stable).

Thanks for asking. I am using a very old ATI video card that in this kernel update amdgpu is suddenly trying to handle. This causes a crash and somehow also ZFS stopped working. When I stopped amdgpu from loading it solved all of my problems.

I got it to work with 5.18 but it involved me going into my paru cache folder and git pull + makepkg manually since paru didn't pick up that anything had changed during a normal update command.

I think simply adding the + discriminator in the version doesn't cause AUR helpers to distinguish that it's a new version to build.

Fails to build with 5.18.1-arch1-1 kernel.

configure: error: 
    *** None of the expected "blk_queue_discard" interfaces were detected.
    *** This may be because your kernel version is newer than what is
    *** supported, or you are using a patched custom kernel with
    *** incompatible modifications.
    *** ZFS Version: zfs-2.1.4-1
    *** Compatible Kernels: 3.10 - 5.17

@habys What does your DKMS log say about it?

Are you shure you have everything updated?

And with that I mean are you also shure: 1. that you are not ignoring any packages in your pacman.conf anymore, 2. that you tried switching to at least one other mirror (recently I was having issues with partial upgrades from a bad mirror) and 3. that you also updated with '-Syyu' (double 'y').

I am having no luck with 5.18.1-arch1-1 currently. zfs-utils 2.1.4+65.r05147319b0-1 zfs-dkms 2.1.4+65.r05147319b0-2

I have removed and reinstalled zfs-utils and zfs-dkms after installing the new kernel to no avail.

Works fine for me indeed. Builds for both kernels.

The archzfs version is still having the issues (forgot to mention, but I have been using that one for quite while now, but I switched back and forth more than once), so now we are back on this one on AUR again. :)

There was an update to this package on 2022-05-25 to handle kernel 5.18.

For anyone having issues with updating their kernel, make sure you update your zfs packages (aur) as well.

Currently working for me with:

zfs-dkms 2.1.4+65.r05147319b0-2

zfs-utils 2.1.4+65.r05147319b0-1

linux 5.18.1.arch1-1

@bazzawill - I set the ignore option in /etc/pacman.conf to not update my kernels with:

IgnorePkg = linux-lts* linux-hardened*

(I build & update my kernels manually with arch-sign-modules in AUR)

As @jongeduard mentioned if a build fails I just downgrade the kernel with pacman -U /path/to/kernel.pkg.zst /path/to/kernel-headers.pkg.zst if the zfs modules do not build.

The zfs modules mostly build without problems for me as linux-lts & linux-hardened are not bleeding edge like linux-zen. Rarely when there is major version change in gcc I have to rebuild a whole kernel as all modules fail to build with a differing gcc major version & a kernel built with a previous gcc.
