@jongeduard, I am aware that it is likely harmless, at least for now. I just wanted to raise the issue with the maintainer.

@eschwartz @jonathon

@debohman I noticed the same. Some searching on the internet will show you more recent examples elsewhere around DKMS.

In the DKMS project itself on GitHub I found this:

So it's just a change there. When you click on "#158" on that page, you'll find that it's apparently a change in order to remove "distro specific packaging" related things.

Anyway, it's just a warning, not a real problem and everythings works fine.

When I just upgraded my system, I received the following warning from dkms:

Deprecated feature: REMAKE_INITRD

The system was upgraded to dkms-3.0.2-1.

On the topic of swapping between zfs-utils from archzfs vs eschwartz (the one in AUR), a word of warning!

The initcpio hooks in in is not the same as in If you rely on encrypted root volume, the initcpio in zfs-utils AUR package will not work, since it is lacking the zfs loadkey call. This is present in archzfs version though. Read more here:

@fryfrog, that is very useful. It wasn't commented in my paru.conf, but I added it.

fryfrog commented on 2021-10-01 20:00

@dhathaway, since you use paru, you can edit /etc/paru.conf and uncomment the line with BatchInstall, that way it'll package up the AUR packages, but install them all together at the end! This is possible in yay too, but I don't know how.

@fryfrog you are right that this is mentioned many times in the past here. You just have to know what to look for, which I did not. Thanks for the hint.

Since it has been many pages since a fix was posted, here is what I did:

I started in ~/.cache/paru/clone/ since I prefer paru to yay.

cd zfs-dkms
makepkg -s
cd ../zfs-utils/
makepkg -s
sudo pacman -U ~/.cache/paru/clone/zfs-dkms/zfs-dkms-2.1.1-1-any.pkg.tar.zst \
sudo vim /etc/pacman.conf
sudo reboot

Note that I had gone back to a previous kernel, so I also took linux and linux-headers out of the IgnorePkg so that I could upgrade the kernel finally. That is why I edited pacman.conf.

@dhathaway, you have to install/update both packages at the same time. This has always been true. Read further back if you need help understanding, it is a common problem.

I receive this error when installing using yay or paru:

looking for conflicting packages...
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: installing zfs-utils (2.1.1-1) breaks dependency 'zfs-utils=2.1.0' required by zfs-dkms

I've never encountered this before. How to resolve? A grep in ~/.cache/[yay|paru]/zfs-[dkms|utils] doesn't find 2.1.0.
