New version of Linux kernel has been released ( core/linux 5.5.13.arch2-1 ) making this version uncompatible

francoism90 commented on 2020-03-30 09:40

Will this be compatible with Linux 5.6? :)

minextu commented on 2020-03-01 21:08

@francoism90 There used to be a separate package for that. See the discussion on why it got removed:

@minextu Thanks for the update!

Could you please add your zfs-utils PKG as dep to AUR (e.g. zfs-linux-utils) instead? Current differs a lot and is being provided by someone else, causing issues.

A fix to the 5.5 build issues has been merged. Updates should hopefully be coming soon.

@minextu Thanks for blocking Linux 5.5 and posting the upstream link. :)

To my understanding, even building the kernel with the patch, it may cause issues later on because it wasn't tested with Linux 5.5? Switching to linux-lts isn't a solution for everyone as it may cause other issues (AMD Zen2, Intel, etc.), unless things have been backported.

@minextu your PKGBUILD file still says linux 5.5.1.arch1-1 is a dependancy. Should it be linux 5.4.15.arch1-1 since ZFS is broken on 5.5?

minextu commented on 2020-02-05 00:09

ZFS is broken on linux 5.5 right now, so this won't build. For more information see

Edit: A patch has been implemented

@francoism90 using the repo definitely makes it easier to upgrade. If you want faster updates you can try the archzfs-testing repo. It automatically updates once per day but it's untested. That said, I didn't have any issues so far and I'm actually thinking about using the testing repository as the main one at some point.

@minextu Should one use the repo instead when using linux as kernel?

However it doesn't always sync with the latest version in core:
