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 https://github.com/archzfs/archzfs/issues/92

@Lindhe I had the same problem. I found that I got the 4.9.11-1 update by doing 'pacman -Syyu' instead of 'pacman -Syu'. This will force a refresh of the available packages, even if pacman thinks it has the latest. Hope that helps.

I see that on this page it says that it depends on linux=4.9.11-1, but pacman still says "zfs-linux: installing linux (4.9.11-1) breaks dependency 'linux=4.8.13'". Do I need to do some vodo witchcraft to make it work?

@luc, if only it was that easy:
:: spl-linux: installing linux (4.9.7-1) breaks dependency 'linux=4.8.13'
:: zfs-linux: installing linux (4.9.7-1) breaks dependency 'linux=4.8.13'
:: zfs-utils-linux: installing linux (4.9.7-1) breaks dependency 'linux=4.8.13'

@lockheed You can download the matching linux package from: https://archive.archlinux.org/packages/l/linux/

Damn it. I missed the one-day update window and now I am still stuck with kernel 4.8 and old ZFS package...

@demizer Thank you for taking the time out of your day to make our lives a little easier.

I've been using this package for a while now, and it did happen earlier. You were just lucky not to update until it got sorted out.

@predmijat Yeah, that's the way it has always worked for me as long as I've been using the zfs packages from demizer over the past year. It wouldn't update the linux kernel as long as the zfs packages were out-of-date. Maybe something changed in 0.6.5.8_4.8.12_2-1 ?

predmijat commented on 2016-12-09 23:48

Why is this happening each couple of updates? Can it be set up so that it always requires a specific version? Is there a situation where you wouldn't want that?
