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

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 When the Arch kenel gets updated, this package falls out of date.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!

I think what described is also the case for archzfs repository. I also use archzfs and I get the same error often. I just wait until the packages get updated with working dependencies. Flagging the package as out-of-date might help the maintainers become aware of the issue.

Hi @dmp1ce, thanks for your reply! Sorry, I should have clarified before that I'm using the archzfs repo. I remember in the past that I would have to manually update the dependencies, but ever since using the archzfs repo I didn't have to do this anymore. Anyway, I will do a manual update first then. Thank you once again!

@Ruli that is typical with this package. The reason is because of a dependency on a specific linux version. I don't know the reason for the specific linux version but I assume it is for a good reason. I think there has been some work on automating the new releases when new linux kernels comes out but I'm not sure about the details.

Someone please correct me where I am wrong.

Hi, when I tried to do pacman -Syu today, I got the following message:

resolving dependencies... warning: cannot resolve "linux=5.0.10.arch1-1", a dependency of "spl-linux" warning: cannot resolve "linux=5.0.10.arch1-1", a dependency of "spl-linux-headers" warning: cannot resolve "linux=5.0.10.arch1-1", a dependency of "spl-linux" warning: cannot resolve "linux=5.0.10.arch1-1", a dependency of "zfs-linux" warning: cannot resolve "linux=5.0.10.arch1-1", a dependency of "spl-linux" warning: cannot resolve "linux=5.0.10.arch1-1", a dependency of "zfs-linux-headers" :: The following packages cannot be upgraded due to unresolvable dependencies: spl-linux spl-linux-headers zfs-linux zfs-linux-headers

Is anyone else seeing this as well? Thanks in advance!

Dependency zfs-utils-common is missing. So package couldn't be compiled
