ZFS is broken on linux 5.5 right now, so this won't build. For more information see

A fix to the 5.5 build issues has been merged. Updates should hopefully be coming soon.

@minextu Thanks for blocking Linux 5.5 and posting the upstream link. :)

To my understanding, even building the kernel with the patch, it may cause issues later on because it wasn't tested with Linux 5.5? Switching to linux-lts isn't a solution for everyone as it may cause other issues (AMD Zen2, Intel, etc.), unless things have been backported.

@minextu your PKGBUILD file still says linux 5.5.1.arch1-1 is a dependancy. Should it be linux 5.4.15.arch1-1 since ZFS is broken on 5.5?

@francoism90 using the repo definitely makes it easier to upgrade. If you want faster updates you can try the archzfs-testing repo. It automatically updates once per day but it's untested. That said, I didn't have any issues so far and I'm actually thinking about using the testing repository as the main one at some point.

@minextu Should one use the repo instead when using linux as kernel?

However it doesn't always sync with the latest version in core:

warning: cannot resolve "linux=5.4.14.arch1-1", a dependency of "zfs-linux"
warning: cannot resolve "linux=5.4.14.arch1-1", a dependency of "zfs-linux-headers"
:: The following packages cannot be upgraded due to unresolvable dependencies:
      zfs-linux  zfs-linux-headers

@minextu Thanks, this worked for me.

@ipickering I don't maintain the aur version of zfs-utils, so I don't have any control over this. You can use this PKGBUILD in the meantime:

I can no longer install this package, because it requires zfs-utils 0.8.3, but only 0.8.2-2 is in the AUR. Normally I uninstalled zfs-linux to get around the fact that I can't do pacman -Syu because of the kernel dependency but this leaves me stuck without ZFS. Will zfs-utils be updated soon?

@torben thank you for the suggestion! I think linux-lts and zfs-linux-lts is the best option here.
