@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?

There will be an update in friday.

@scott32 zfs-dkms has not implemented dependency hooks or has implemented them incorrectly as dkms itself has the capability yet zfs will try to build before spl.

@ShaunPC: "On investigation it appears that dkms already has a module dependency check implemented" ... when I look into /usr/share/libalpm/hooks/70-dkms-install.hook and /usr/lib/dkms/alpm-hook, I don't see any dependency, or module build ordering checks there. What did you mean?

To use with a 4.9 kernel, edit the PKGBUILD for both spl-dkms and zfs-dkms, change pkgver to

@salvert I too have been having trouble with dkms installing the modules in the wrong order. There does not seem to be an order implemented by the zfs module. On investigation it appears that dkms already has a module dependency check implemented. So my guess is that the zfs module is not using the dkms dependency check correctly. I've been rerunning the dkms install for zfs manually after my updates and then rerunning mkinitcpio to regenerate my kernel images. That has worked for me till this problem gets fixed.
