I'm not getting this to work with the latest kernel either.

I can't modprobe it, `sudo modprobe zfs` results in:

modprobe: FATAL: Module zfs not found in directory /lib/modules/4.9.6-1-ARCH

I attempted to reinstall it with dkms, getting this error with `dkms autoinstall`:

checking spl source directory... /usr/src/spl-0.7.0
checking spl build directory... /var/lib/dkms/spl/0.7.0/4.9.6-1-ARCH/x86_64

Please be more verbose: what does not work? I am using linux-zen aside from stock Arch linux package, and for both kernels dkms modules are build and installed correctly (running linux-zen 4.9.6 right now).

This package does not work with latest kernel

I'm not sure the package is to blame. As of the most recent commit this afternoon this builds and works on my system with a root zfs pool.

The only issue I'm currently experiencing is tied to and effects the dkms install. It is described here

This package killed my / installation, as the rootfs fails to mount during boot.
It whines about canonicalization error 2. No idea what this means.

The initcpio hook and install files are outdated, they don't even have any of the fixes from the archzfs ones.

This breaks booting right now because of the missing

There have been recent changes to the ZoL codebase that are noteworthy as they may cause issues during update. The configuration files for systemd have changed and the new services are not enabled by default after updating.

As the package lacks the preset data it is necessary to enable the services manually for zfs filesystems to mount properly.

This package fails at the dkms step , the solution suggested by ajs124 below works perfectly . Thanks .

This package, as well as spl-dkms-git, is broken.

They both fail to compile, because dkms expects a Makefile, which the PKGBUILD generates with and configure, but does not include in the package, because it uses git archive.

Simply replacing the "git archive | tar" part with "cp -r . ${dkmsdir}/" fixes this problem.
