8.1.9 is out, I've updated the PKGBUILD, see here: dkms build was not working for me, so I've tried to fix it as well ("make module" was supposed to start another make process internally, but it was not happening, so I've changed dkms.conf to initiate that 2nd make directly).

Differences between client versions change in almost every release, added and removed functionality and options. This doesn't just change between major releases (ie: 7 to 8) but also between minor updates from say 8.1.0 to 8.1.2 to 8.1.3 to 8.1.4 etc..

I updated to the latest 7 as that is what my work's IT was using. I'm not sure what the compatibility story is between different client versions.

It may make sense to have a seperate package per major version, but I'm not really sure.

Cool someone is maintaining this now. I have to ask, why'd you choose to stick with tsm 7 instead of move to 8? They both work in my usecase, so I went with 8. Is there some kind of deal-breaking difference?

(I know almost nothing about Tivoli. My work just told me I could use it to backup my desktop to their crazy AIX backup thing.)

@codyps would you like to take over maintenance of this package?

Here's a patch to update this to & use bsdtar.

It also adds a broken dkms package for the kernel module now shipped in the package. Build fails due to kernel incompatibilities.

You should use bsdtar to extract the rpm files instead of the useless rpmextract wrapper.
