@thunderforce I don't try to _install_ but update the package, don't know how you got the thought I would try to install it.

@isiachi Nope, you package is broken not an aurhelper script. This is a plane stupid "works for me" reason from your side.

If you say "my package need version=xyz" and you want to upgrade the package and the next version has the dependency "I need version=abc" it cannot be upgraded. As well as the dependency cannot be upgraded, because it's a needed dependency with this version for an installed version.

I would say, yes this could be fixed in pacman, if they add a layer of complexity: copy all installed package versions, change them to the new versions and checking all constrains. But since this is not done, your package uses a not compatible way of adding a constrain.

Since you update both packages at the same time, you could simply add a "higher than xyz" on the zfs package and it would work while updating.

This package is now again not working with the official kernel package since the compability patches for Linux 4.10 are missing. Please fix this

I use zfs-dkms and I have no problem installing zfs-auto-snapshot-git either with pacaur or with makepkg.
Try downloading the PKGBUILD file and installing it with makepkg.

I'm new on manjaro (arch based linux). So I may be wrong.
But to me, it looks like that "provides zfs" in zfs-dkms doesn't work.
I have zfs running, so I'm sure that zfs-dkms works as expected.
But when I try to install i.e. zfs-auto-snapshot-git, which depends on zfs it doesn't recognise "zfs" and try's to install linux...-zfs.
Then when I remove depends('zfs') or change is to depends('zfs-dkms') in PKGBUILD of zfs-auto-snapshot-git everything went fine.
When I do a "pacman -R zfs" I get "not found" too.

Thanks for the help!

I have already explained that is a aur helper related problem in this comment:

@RubenKelevra, not sure why you're trying to install this package, but while trying to use VirtualBox and a google search I ended up here. This fixed the DKMS hook for me:

sudo pacman -U linux-headers-4.9.8-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

:: Running post-transaction hooks...
(1/2) Install DKMS modules
==> dkms install vboxhost/5.1.14_OSE -k 4.9.8-1-ARCH
(2/2) Arming ConditionNeedsUpdate...

hope it's helpful

Still issues with a simple update because this PKGBUILD depends on a given version:

loading packages...
resolving dependencies...
looking for conflicting packages...
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: zfs-dkms: installing spl-dkms ( breaks dependency 'spl-dkms='

Friday is now two days gone, so where's the update, mate?

RubenKelevra commented on 2017-02-08 22:33

Still no update? Why does it take 5 days for a simple subversion update, which only needs a checksum-push?

isiachi commented on 2017-02-07 00:23

There will be an update in friday.
