Hi everyone, thanks to @minextu and @hexchain, we have new packages for linux-lts stable and git! These packages introduce a number of changes,

* Re-worked package lists, we now hove (zfs|spl)-linux-lts-headers and (zfs|spl)-utils-common (@minextu)
* Support for OpenZFS (@minextu)
* init script changes (@hexchain): and
* support for linux-hardened kernel (thanks @minextu)

The new and renamed packages are in preparation for extramodules support. Hopefully in the future we'll only have to build archzfs on every major kernel update 4.11 -> 4.12 instead of on every minor update.

For those that don't want to wait, I have created linux-lts-git packages as a workaround. The packages are also available in the archzfs repository.

Package group: archzfs-linux-lts-git
Packages spl-linux-lts-git, spl-utils-linux-lts-git, zfs-utils-linux-lts-git, zfs-linux-lts-git

LTS packages are FAILING TO BUILD with GCC 7.

btw, I have weird cpu load average spikes (on hw and virt machines), with 30..60 minutes delay (observed in top and zabbix). Load jumps but cpu utilization stay low (total<5%). It doesn't correlate with systemd timers. In mean time machine with same configuration but on ext4 has no such spikes. I not sure its zfs fault. Does anyone have such problem? Screenshot of cpu load and usage for systems that were idle most of the time

Hello everyone. Packages have not been updated in a while because I am working to switch them over to use "extramodules" so that they only need to be updated once for a major version. See

you can compile packages yourself, for example using docker image of archlinux
(created with
**inside** docker container create script

echo '#!/bin/bash
cd "/tmp/"
curl -LO "$Package.tar.gz"
tar -xvf "$Package.tar.gz"
cd "./$Package"
chown -R nobody:nobody ./
sudo -u nobody makepkg -s
pacman -U --noconfirm "$Package"*".pkg.tar.xz"
cp "$Package"*".pkg.tar.xz" "/var/cache/pacman/pkg/"
cd "../"
rm -rf "./$Package"
cd "$dir"' > /bin/install_aur
chmod +x /bin/install_aur

install packages: base-devel linux-lts-headers kmod linux-lts

then you can try compile zfs-lts

echo "spl-utils-linux-lts spl-linux-lts zfs-utils-linux-lts zfs-linux-lts" | xargs -n1 install_aur

if it work - you then can copy packages to host system

docker cp container_name:/var/cache/pacman/pkg /tmp/zfs

dirty but it work.. sometimes

I find that the archzfs repo usually lags behind quite a bit for the lts kernel, right now it's still pointing to the 4.4.46 kernel

./configure does not find spl.

Adding --with-spl=/usr/src/spl- to ./configure fixed it for me.

Strange problem: the AUR packages have been updated, but not the archzfs repository.

Thanks for the great work.

This package is out-of-date for 3 days now. Is there a problem? Is it possible to help out somehow?
