Thanks for the advices. This package is using and will use git to fetch the source.

For the alpm-hooks it's not a bad idea. I've already thought about but right now the kernel package updates the initcpio with the old .install script. So basically the initcpio it's always updated before dkms. I'm following this bug report and see what they want to do. (

When using the tarball instead of Git you wouldn't have to download the whole history of the repository: source=($pkgver/zfs-$pkgver.tar.gz)

Also alpm-hooks(5) for rebuilding the initcpio when the DMKS modules have been rebuilt would be useful if your / is on ZFS.

Is it possible to remove the hard version for spl-dkms= to allow for higher versions as this would allow upgrades to progress easier

cschwarz commented on 2016-05-08 22:24

Disabling checksum-checking is a bad idea (since, commit 8f9f7d54b520e920d1561a49b76ee092f6c13d4f).

If you don't want to use the tarballs, you should use the commit SHA1,e.g.


Otherwise, since the tags are not signed, they could be changed by upstream, rendering inconsistent versioning of this package.

Please change this back in all (zfs|spl)-(dkms|utils).

It's all about build not dep.

Upgrade your packages with -d flag.

This package is creating dependency hell. Due to spl-dkms. Attempting to update spl-dkms first gives the error
"zfs-dkms: installing spl-dkms ( breaks dependency 'spl-dkms="
However attempting to update zfs-dkms first gives the error that spl-dkms is required (sorry no direct error message). I had to uninstall update spl-dkms then install to bypass.

This package is an excellent resource and it is unfortunate to see it go unmaintained. I've updated the PKGBUILD and given it a bit of polish. Users can find the modified resources at the following URLs:

In the weekend I will update it.

Sorry but tomorrow I've got my degree so I'm a little busy.
