@jongeduard - it's safe to manually build zfs-dkms / zfs-utils versions 2.1.1. I noticed today on another machine running Manjaro they use 2.1.1 now.

If you have pacman-contrib installed the PKGBUILD integrity sums can be updated with updpkgsums run in the directory with the PKGBUILD & then makepkg -s

After building install with:

mylist=$(ls /path/to/packages/zfs*2.1.1*)
sudo pacman -U $mylist

I've successfully built zfs modules for:

==> dkms install --no-depmod -m zfs -v 2.1.1 -k 5.12.19-hardened1-1-hardened
==> dkms install --no-depmod -m zfs -v 2.1.1 -k 5.10.61-1-lts
==> dkms install --no-depmod -m zfs -v 2.1.1 -k 5.10.18-zen-1-zen-lts510-g513e3c94a40f
==> dkms install --no-depmod -m zfs -v 2.1.1 -k 5.10.60-hardened1-1-hardened-cacule
==> dkms install --no-depmod -m zfs -v 2.1.1 -k 5.12.19-1-ck
==> dkms install --no-depmod -m zfs -v 2.1.1 -k 5.14.8-hardened1-1-hardened

@johno, @eschwartz maintains a lot of packages and is just a regular old human doing this in their spare time. He's probably on vacation or busy or who knows what. Might even be testing/running it locally before pushing it up. It was updated 2 months ago, so it clearly isn't abandoned.

You can just fetch the PKGBUILD and update it yourself, if you want it updated right meow. Or archzfs/zfs-dkms has been updated, so you could switch to that.

is this package dead? Why is it no longer maintained? Is there a reason for this? Thanks for an answer!

Best regards, johno

That however skips all checksums and not just the specific archives. It's best to not do a global skip as other files can still be pulled.

If we're going to be clearer then we should also say why you shouldn't do something.

Or, if your really brave. Change the version to 2.1.1, save changes and...


Edit: In the interest of being more clear...

Edit the PKGBUILD to update zfs-(dkms/utils) to version 2.1.1 and save changes.

If you look at the man page for makepkg you will see --skipchecksums

I used the command "makepkg -s --skipchecksums" to build both packages.

2.1.1 was released 5 days ago with support for 5.14.x

Download snapshot, open PKGBUILD, change version to 2.1.1 and it's sum to 'SKIP'

Repeat for zfs-utils.

pacman -U $path/zfs-dkms.pkg.tar.xz $path/zfs-utils.pkg.tar.xz

@jongeduard: If that is a strong concern of yours, you should probably fork this package and maintain your own version that never patches. In the past, it and archzfs have applied patches from master in order to get versions working with the latest Arch kernel. They're usually fairly simple, but if your line is as you've stated... you've probably already violated it.

Personally, I wouldn't download any code from a unstable, unfinished version on Github when it comes to a filesystem.

If a certain new kernel version does not let it build successfully, then it doesn't, and it shouldn't.

Safety of my files sitting on my ZFS pool is more important.

Downgrading the kernel feels like the only correct decision for me, until the new version is truly released.

My advice is to have linux-lts{-headers} installed as backup kernel.
