I'm not going to add your patch. This is a stable branch. Use the 4.6 kernel or switch to zfs-dkms-git.

@fermatslast Thanks for your patch, very much appreciated.

I just noticed due to differences in service names between RH/Fedora and Arch, /usr/lib/systemd/system/zfs-share.service incorrectly references 'smb.service' instead of 'smbd.service'. I have a patch for the systemd unit in question, as well as a patch for the pkgbuild applying the systemd unit patch (both trivial, obviously), but am unsure of the correct way to submit them.

Would be great if this package can be guarded with something like linux < 4.7 to avoid an incompatible update because the package-maintainer is sleeping.

Great! That patch gets me working for now until the upstream stuff gets done. Thanks for your help!

Here's a patch for the pkgbuild that adds a linux 4.7 compatibility patch to the build:

This is a temporary fix until the zfsonlinux upstream release has 4.7 support.

Arch has now moved to 4.7.0 kernel, causing this package some trouble. What all needs to be done to bring this up to speed?

Thanks. However, after compiling the new kernel and installing it, I get this:

-> Running build hook: [zfs]

If you remove the zfs package the old module are still loaded so you can simple install zfs-dkms.

I have a technical question, sort of removing the tablecloth underneath the dinner set...

I have a server with ZFS on root which runs on regular zfs packages (non-dkms). I need to migrate to zfs-dkms (and friends) to get support for non-stock Arch kernel.

The question is: how can I do that?

To install -dkms packages, I need to remove regular packages. But if I do that, I am afraid I will not be able to boot (or even operate on root prior to reboot) anymore because the whole root is on ZFS.

Can someone propose some sane course of action?
