Newbie question: How do I update this from 4.19 to 5.4? I seem to get a circular problem:

[code]:: installing linux-lts (5.4.18-1) breaks dependency 'linux-lts=4.19.101-1' required by zfs-linux-lts And on the other side:[/code] [code]==> Missing dependencies: -> linux-lts=5.4.18-1[/code]

Do I have to uninstall zfs-linux-lts at each update, switch to newer kernel then reinstall zfs-linux-lts?

Hi demizer,

I'm trying to build this against the latest LTS kernel in testing: Unable to build an empty module - is this expected? Any workaround?

Hi, are there any plans to upgrade zfs-linux-lts to be used together with the 4.19.78-2 kernel?

Hi everyone, as you might know: I'm the new Maintainer of archzfs ( As soon as I get access to the domain, I will update all packages. I've implemented an automated build system to help update packages faster in the future. The new gpg key for the repo is F75D9D76 ArchZFS Bot <>. If you are using the archzfs repo, you will need to add this key to pacman's trusted key list.

pacman-key -r F75D9D76
pacman-key --lsign-key F75D9D76

Edit: Packages are now up to date on The temporary domain is no longer needed

Is this project dead?

This is quite great. I actually use ZFS successfully on ALARMPI (for the RPi1), and I've made a script that modifies these packages for building it on that system. I've tested v0.7.2 built against raspberrypi-kernel-4.9.52-1-ARCH, and it works. The advantage of using these packages contrary to the dkms ones in that these easily lend themselves to compilation using distcc, and that the packages can be shared between systems running the same kernel version without additional compilation. The script can be found at Note that you might not be able to use the script as is, as it assumes a few things, like a ~/cower directory and that you actually have a working distcc configuration that is to be used with parallel makepkg configs for local (/etc/makepkg-local.conf) and distcc (/etc/makepkg-distcc.conf) setups - which isn't actually necessary here -, respectively. The script can likely be made more easy to use as-is, but that is left for future work.

Is there a reason this is pinned at linux-lts=4.9.42? Can it not just be linux-lts<4.10 or something of the sort? I currently don't seem to be able to update zfs-linux-lts for this reason (I'm at 4.9.41, and Arch is at 4.9.43, and zfs-linux-lts wants 4.9.42).

Hi everyone, thanks to @minextu and @hexchain, we have new packages for linux-lts stable and git! These packages introduce a number of changes,

* Re-worked package lists, we now hove (zfs|spl)-linux-lts-headers and (zfs|spl)-utils-common (@minextu)
* Support for OpenZFS (@minextu)
* init script changes (@hexchain): and
* support for linux-hardened kernel (thanks @minextu)

The new and renamed packages are in preparation for extramodules support. Hopefully in the future we'll only have to build archzfs on every major kernel update 4.11 -> 4.12 instead of on every minor update.

For those that don't want to wait, I have created linux-lts-git packages as a workaround. The packages are also available in the archzfs repository.

Package group: archzfs-linux-lts-git
Packages spl-linux-lts-git, spl-utils-linux-lts-git, zfs-utils-linux-lts-git, zfs-linux-lts-git

LTS packages are FAILING TO BUILD with GCC 7.
