Please see ethan_nx's answer below for a workaround for fully upgrading your system. As far as I understood there is no better and still secure way at the moment, but you can help to minimize the lag between new kernel and zfs-linux releases by e.g. flagging the package out-of-date after you recognized it.

every time I check on this package, it has been updated, but it is still out of date because linux has subsequently also updated. Whenever this package is out of date, which is almost always, I cannot upgrade my sysem at all.

surely there's a better way?

@francoism90, are you really sure you want to use zfs encryption as soon as it is released ? You want to beta test this ? I am interested in it too, but I will wait a little wait for it to get more stable before using it.

@francoism90 No, no yet. It might get included in zfs 0.8

Can someone please confirm if ZFS encryption now has been included in stable?

After the latest update ZFS didn't start on boot. I had to re-enable and now it's fine.

Working on it (,

It's because the patch for linux 4.14 hasn't made it into a stable release yet

@eblau I have the exact same problem, both with this and the DKMS version.

I'm hitting errors booting from a root zfs filesystem after installing the latest (

modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'zfs': Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)

When I check dmesg, I see:

spl: Unknown symbol vfs_write (err 0)

spl: Unknown symbol vfs_read (err 0)

spl: Unknown symbol vfs_write (err 0)

spl: Unknown symbol vfs_read (err 0)

I checked both zfs and spl kernel modules with modinfo and they show the version as 0.7.3-1 and vermagic as 4.14.3-1-ARCH so it appears that I have the correct modules installed and loaded in the initramfs.

I downgraded to kernel 4.13.12 and everything works fine.

4.13.3 kernel is released.
