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

I'm using archzfs/zfs-dkms and it builds fine for 5.7.2. I would expect aur/zfs-dkms to be equally fine. Have you tried?

Does zfs-dkms 0.8.4-1 build on the latest kernel 5.7.2? Thanks, Anderson

Thanks. I managed to fix it by install zfs-dkms-git instead. Still getting a few weird errors, but at least it works now :)

@sunfisks - pacman -U $(ls /var/cache/pacman/pkg/gcc*-9.3.0-1*)

sunflsks commented on 2020-06-02 14:10

Question, how did you downgrade gcc?

itoffshore commented on 2020-06-02 11:43

To build correctly under linux-hardened I needed to downgrade gcc & gcc-libs to 9.3.0-1 - this also applied to nvidia-beta-dkms

I also upgraded to dkms 2.8.1-4 from testing

You can just remove the zfs-dkms and zfs-utils packages, and then reinstall them ...

pacman -R zfs-dkms zfs-utils
And then ...
yay -S zfs-dkms
Reboot after that. zfs-utils will be automatically installed as a dependency. This has always worked for me when I've needed to do it. The only thing to note is that the /etc/zfs/zed.d/zed.rc file will be replaced with a new default file, so if you've made any changes in there for the zed service (for example for email notifications) then you will have to edit that file again, or restore it from a backup.

@FrederickZh that seems to have worked, thanks! Ran install, restarted and ran zpool status to ensure the pool was still available.
The full command I used was # pacman -U ~/.cache/yay/zfs-dkms/zfs-dkms-0.8.4-1-any.pkg.tar.xz ~/.cache/yay/zfs-utils/zfs-utils-0.8.4-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

As I mentioned you need to upgrade both packages in a single transaction (which is also what the error messages were talking about). Build them first, then [yay|pacman] -U them.

@fryfrog Thanks for your suggestion, unfortunately it had the same result.
@FrederickZh I navigated to ~/.cache/yay/zfs-dkms/ and ran makepkg --install, since yay had already created it.
