@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.

Server =$repo/x86_64

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

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

warning: cannot resolve "linux=5.4.14.arch1-1", a dependency of "zfs-linux"
warning: cannot resolve "linux=5.4.14.arch1-1", a dependency of "zfs-linux-headers"
:: The following packages cannot be upgraded due to unresolvable dependencies:
      zfs-linux  zfs-linux-headers

@minextu Thanks, this worked for me.

@ipickering I don't maintain the aur version of zfs-utils, so I don't have any control over this. You can use this PKGBUILD in the meantime:

I can no longer install this package, because it requires zfs-utils 0.8.3, but only 0.8.2-2 is in the AUR. Normally I uninstalled zfs-linux to get around the fact that I can't do pacman -Syu because of the kernel dependency but this leaves me stuck without ZFS. Will zfs-utils be updated soon?

@torben thank you for the suggestion! I think linux-lts and zfs-linux-lts is the best option here.

minextu commented on 2020-01-18 20:21

@CoolGenie zfs-linux is in sync with arch core right now. The error you are getting happens because you have an old version of zfs-linux installed. So you need to remove the old one first before updating.

If this is too much effort, you can also use the archzfs repository ( or zfs-dkms.

PS: There is a variable called _kernelver in the PKGBUILD, which you can adjust and rebuild if the aur version is out of date.

Right! In your account settings "Notify of package updates" needs to be checked too. It was unchecked for me. Now I'll probably get way more emails than I want!

qdmp1ce: Just klick on "Enable notifications" in the "Package Actions" box on the top right. IIRC you have to create an account to do so.

@torben, how do you subscribe to zfs-linux updates?
