Please add zfs encryption support to the initcpio hook (see zfs_decrypt_fs() in

Right now if you install it pacaur will constantly try to update it, because apparently rc3 is a bigger version number than r0:

:: spl-dkms-git: ignoring package upgrade (0.7.0_r0_g1f2671b-1 => latest)
:: spl-utils-dkms-git: ignoring package upgrade (0.7.0_r0_g1f2671b-1 => latest)
:: zfs-dkms-git: ignoring package upgrade (0.7.0_r0_gccad64314-1 => latest)
:: zfs-utils-dkms-git: ignoring package upgrade (0.7.0_r0_gccad64314-1 => latest)

Also please remove zlib_deflate from the initcpio hook while you're at it. Will remove the following error when running mkinitcpio:

==> ERROR: module not found: `zlib_deflate'
==> Generating module dependencies
==> Creating gzip-compressed initcpio image: /boot/initramfs-linux-fallback.img
==> WARNING: errors were encountered during the build. The image may not be complete.

After latest update my system wont boot, normal recover procedure wont solve the issue.

at boot i get following error:

This pool uses the following feature(s) not supported by this system:
org.zfsonlinux:userobj_accounting (User/Group object accounting.)
All unsupported features are only required for writing to the pool.
The pool can be imported using '-o readonly=on'.
cannot import 'poolname'
error failed to mount real root etc etc.

That's an issue with ArchZFS, this package is not to blame.

BTW, why is this package flagged out-of-date?

On a second thought, rebuild only fails when doing a regular `pacman -Syu`. It appears there is a BUILD_DEPENDS[0]="spl" line in dkms.conf, so dkms should build these modules in the correct order.

However, the pacman hook doesn't take this option into account, resulting in failures. There is a bug report about this issue:

You have to be sure spl is compiled *before* zfs is. Sometimes it will be, sometimes not.

@isiachi: Is there a way to give spl compilation precedence over zfs? I can't find a method. The only way to be sure is reinstall spl from AUR manually, then reinstall zfs.

I'm not getting this to work with the latest kernel either.

I can't modprobe it, `sudo modprobe zfs` results in:

modprobe: FATAL: Module zfs not found in directory /lib/modules/4.9.6-1-ARCH

I attempted to reinstall it with dkms, getting this error with `dkms autoinstall`:

checking spl source directory... /usr/src/spl-0.7.0
checking spl build directory... /var/lib/dkms/spl/0.7.0/4.9.6-1-ARCH/x86_64

Please be more verbose: what does not work? I am using linux-zen aside from stock Arch linux package, and for both kernels dkms modules are build and installed correctly (running linux-zen 4.9.6 right now).
