Checksums don't add security, that's why they're the "integrity check", not the "security check". Do you know how many [core] packages don't have PGP signatures available at all? Those are used on far more devices.

Granted, using PGP when available is always nice. But I don't see you screeching at the non-dkms package maintainer to fix his packages...

Edit: to clarify, I even like strong integrity checks myself, because they're definitely better than nothing and it can only help. But you're going about this totally the wrong way and you should also consider the old saying about people who live in glass houses.

Please add some kind of checksum checking to this package. Currently, the source integrity fully relies on a valid https certificate and the server behind it returning the right data. This doesn't sound right for a kernel module used in thousands of devices.

You can switch to a download link of the release, instead of a git clone (which also reduces the download time and the server load) like this:

Then you can just add a checksum for this archive.

Since they also provide a .asc file, it should be loaded and used to verify the sources too.

Doesn't seem to make sense to hold these packages hostage if you do not have the time to increment a few digits in response to a major data-corrupting regression within 2 weeks. You're just letting people down with consistently late updates.

I would highly recommend using the archzfs repository with pacman instead of this package as it is updated much faster.

Please bump to 0.7.8 as there was a major regression in 0.7.7

Could the aarch64 architecture be added to the PKGBUILD? The ZFS on Linux projects states that the arch is supported ( and I've been using a modified PKGBUILD compiled on aarch64 successfully for some time as well.

Why is the package not updated to 0.7.6? It does not apply to recent kernels and manually hacking the PKGBUILD each time is just stupid.

7.5 version is causing an init_timer error on build.

At least until the packages are updated here do the following:

The 7.6 version of spl and zfs fixes the issue. when installing spl-dkms or zfs-dkms edit the PKGBUILD.

in both zfs-dkms and spl-dkms, Change the variable pkgver=0.7.5 to pkgver=0.7.6

continue building.. it should install properly.

Regarding my last comment below: I resolved this issue by enabling the new "" systemd unit.

I have installed spl-dkms & zfs-dkms 0.7.5 with the latest kernel 4.14.10-1 but for some reason the zfs kernel modules are not loading during boot. If I run '/sbin/modprobe zfs' then the modules load and I can mount the zpool. Anybody else had this issue?
