i'm using zfs with version 0.7.11 without problems

from Updated 9/17/18: We've found a serious regression in 0.7.10 (#7906 #7899). Please use 0.7.9 or 0.7.11.

so 0.7.11 should be ok

@bus yeah, I sent a orphan request again. I got some spare time to maintain this package in time. I don't see why he should keep this package if he has no spare time.

in this package /etc/sudoers.d/ permission is 755 but in system it is 750

@karcher it actually works. In this way I get an updated package automatically when there is a new release.

@karcher At this point I don't think it's possible -- there must be a reason to wait weeks to change the pkgver after every ZFS release.

I don't like being a whiny asshole about this again, but it has been a problem for too long. Having to submit a request to orphan the package every time it's been sitting out of date for a month doesn't really feel in line with the "bleeding edge" ways of Arch.

zfs-0.7.11 is compatible with 4.18 kernel. Is it possible to simply modify the pkgver and sha256sums accordingly in the PKGBUILD and install it?

@Kaedo As far as I know dkms-sorted is no longer necessary, since dkms in extra has this functionality now (

About the kernel panic: We recently changed the hook a bit which might cause your boot problems. Please open an issue at with more details (This AUR package is not archzfs).

Yesterday I installed:

  • archzfs/zfs-dkms 0.7.10-1
  • archzfs/spl-dkms 0.7.10-1
  • core/linux 4.18.6.arch1-1
  • core/linux-headers 4.18.6.arch1-1

I got an failed build when build dkms with version 2.5-3 due to Missing Dependencies.

I resolved the build issue with dkms-sorted 2.5-2, but on reboot I got the problem that my zfs pool could not be imported by the mkinitcpio zfs hook.

Always got kernel panic.

With live USB stick there were no problem during import of the zfs pool.

After checking every possible config mistag I downgraded to:

  • core/linux 4.17.13.arch1-1 (base)
  • core/linux-headers 4.17.13.arch1-1
  • archzfs/spl-dkms 0.7.9-3 (archzfs-dkms)
  • archzfs/spl-utils-common 0.7.9-2 (archzfs-linux)
  • archzfs/zfs-utils-common 0.7.9-2 (archzfs-linux)
  • archzfs/zfs-dkms 0.7.9-3 (archzfs-dkms)

Now every thing works fine. I guess the root cause of the problem is: - archzfs/zfs-dkms 0.7.10-1.

Does anybody else encountered the same problem?

0.7.10 was just released and appears to fix this problem.

This package is likely to fail on 4.18 kernels due to the change in timespec. There's currently an open pull request for a compatibility fix on the zfsonlinux github page:
