@CoolGenie you need to wait until the zfs-linux package gets updated with the current kernel as dependency.

Anyone know why I'm getting: installing linux (5.4.2.arch1-1) breaks dependency 'linux=5.4.1.arch1-1' required by zfs-linux

Root on encrypted ZFS can be decrypted during boot when adding "zfs load-key -a" around line 54 in the mkinitcpio hook "/usr/lib/initcpio/hooks/zfs". @minextu maybe consider as permanent patch?

@dawnofman It didn't break anything but it's fixed now, thanks!

dunno whether this is relevant or not but: --libexecdir=/usr/lib/zfs-${zfsver} should be: --libexecdir=/usr/lib/zfs-${_zfsver} it is not the same variable; it is being built as: --libexecdir='/usr/lib/zfs-'

It's likely to be part of 0.8.2, but could e5db31349484e5e859c7a942eb15b98d68ce5b4d be cherry-picked to be included in this package? It restores SIMD compatibility on the latest 4.14.x/4.19.x/5.x kernels. Debian is already including this patch in their 0.8.1 package :)

@andybz zfs-utils and zfs-dkms have a different maintainer and I don't have access to update.

You can use and in the meantime or update using the archzfs repo (

I moved from zfs-dkms to this package to get ZFS 0.8.0, but I had trouble with no package actually providing zfs-utils=0.8.0.

I ended up just bumping the pkgver on the zfs-utils package to 0.8.0 and I'm OK again but I haven't worked out yet whether there's a packaging issue here or what.

The reason this happens with both the archzfs repo and the AUR package is because the non-dkms package is compiled against a specific version of the Linux kernel. When the Arch kenel gets updated, this package falls out of date. This is only ever the case for 1-2 days. As I understand it there is a certain amount of automation involved. Just be patient and wait for a day before trying to update again. No manual process is needed.

Got it. Thanks again! It's been a while since I encountered this problem, I've somehow forgotten about it... sorry for the hassle!
