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

For clarity, although there is mention of 5.12 in the patches, 2.0.4-2 isn't 5.12 compatible yet and it'll be a future release once ZOL officially supports?

eschwartz commented on 2021-05-06 14:30

There's an open PR in my PKGBUILDs repo to add a couple of backports from the zfs master branch. This will hopefully be resolved soon.

Not sure, as for current 2.1.0-RCs the maximum is still 5.11. The workaround is to use LTS version of the kernel (or self-built 5.11 version of the kernel of your choice) until the support is there.

Nasty message while upgrading to Linux 5.12.1.arch1-1

       *** None of the expected "capability" interfaces were detected.
        *** This may be because your kernel version is newer than what is
        *** supported, or you are using a patched custom kernel with
        *** incompatible modifications.
        *** ZFS Version: zfs-2.0.4-1
        *** Compatible Kernels: 3.10 - 5.11

Indeed, META still has Linux-Maximum: 5.11

update version soon?

That's an integral part of setting up dkms(see wiki). There's no provides for the various linux-*-headers packages, so specifying an explicit dependency on linux-headers would prevent people from using this package with kernel variants like linux-lts.

This is missing the dependency for kernel headers. Without linux-headers installed all I got was:

==> Unable to install module zfs/2.0.4 for kernel *: Missing kernel headers.

Works for me with simple pkgver bump to 2.0.4

Note 5.12 is not supported despite mentions in git log

Might work if you don't care about your data and want to bypass the configure check

Updates are quite an issue with this package, because it has the zfs-uitls version hardcoded in its dependencies. (Not sure whether this is necessary or not.)

Well, once upon a time they both built from the same PKGBUILD, thus inconveniencing users who wanted the utils but also a built variant of the module, e.g. zfs-linux...

Given there's no real guarantee from the upstream project that you can use any module version with any utils version, I think it's reasonable to expect them to be somewhat synced... this is not a problem if your AUR helper supports building multiple packages and installing them at the end. Or if you build packages into a custom repo, like aurutils does.

lysergia commented on 2021-02-13 18:21

@andrej, you should build both packages first & then install them in one call to pacman -U

Updates are quite an issue with this package, because it has the zfs-uitls version hardcoded in its dependencies. (Not sure whether this is necessary or not.) As a consequence, one has to remove zfs-dkms, then do a system upgrade involving zfs-utils and then reinstall zfs-dkms. If something goes wrong during the update and a reboot occurs, one may end up without ZFS support, which may be a slight inconvenience or an unbootable system, depending on your ZFS setup.
