Doesn't appear to build, at least on my system.

Nice speech. Totally irrelevant though.

When I say I'm not going to apply the patch, what I mean is I can't. If you try applying it, you'll find out why you can't either.

To save you the time, I'll tell you the error message you'd get.

Reversed (or previously applied) patch detected! Assume -R? [n]

P.S. check the author of that PR, then check the commit message for the latest version of this PKGBUILD.

Please apply this patch

I don't know if it was just me beeing stupid, or if it is a thing, but I downgraded the kernel to 5.11 on a new machine to install zfs-dkms 2.0.4 and I all the time got the error "make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop." during the dkms install. Solution (for me) was to downgrade gcc (to e.g. 10.2.0). And then the dkms install worked as always.

btw: Thank you very much for maintaining the package! Appreciate the effort!

@iusrlinearb: The patches in the recent PKGBUILD update make it compatible, they're backported from master, so it is compatible. But once zol does the same thing and releases 2.0.5, it'll be official and also compatible.

iusrlinearb commented on 2021-05-07 06:37

For clarity, although there is mention of 5.12 in the patches, 2.0.4-2 isn't 5.12 compatible yet and it'll be a future release once ZOL officially supports?

There's an open PR in my PKGBUILDs repo to add a couple of backports from the zfs master branch. This will hopefully be resolved soon.

Not sure, as for current 2.1.0-RCs the maximum is still 5.11. The workaround is to use LTS version of the kernel (or self-built 5.11 version of the kernel of your choice) until the support is there.

Nasty message while upgrading to Linux 5.12.1.arch1-1

       *** None of the expected "capability" interfaces were detected.
        *** This may be because your kernel version is newer than what is
        *** supported, or you are using a patched custom kernel with
        *** incompatible modifications.
        *** ZFS Version: zfs-2.0.4-1
        *** Compatible Kernels: 3.10 - 5.11

Indeed, META still has Linux-Maximum: 5.11

update version soon?

That's an integral part of setting up dkms(see wiki). There's no provides for the various linux-*-headers packages, so specifying an explicit dependency on linux-headers would prevent people from using this package with kernel variants like linux-lts.
