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

This looks like an updated version of that patch that actually got merged upstream, and signed-off by one of the main developers of zfs, are you aware of it?

minextu commented on 2018-01-29 22:25

SPL got already patched for 4.15, you just need to apply the patch like done here: There's also a pending pull request for archzfs (

I can't find any info about linux 4.15 on any of the online resources available for openzfs, I've basically looked everywhere, support forums, github issues, the website, nobody is saying anything about it. Anyone got an ETA on when it'll be available? If it'll take long, I'll have to work out a workaround for my use case, that's why I'm asking.

Please see ethan_nx's answer below for a workaround for fully upgrading your system. As far as I understood there is no better and still secure way at the moment, but you can help to minimize the lag between new kernel and zfs-linux releases by e.g. flagging the package out-of-date after you recognized it.

every time I check on this package, it has been updated, but it is still out of date because linux has subsequently also updated. Whenever this package is out of date, which is almost always, I cannot upgrade my sysem at all.

surely there's a better way?

@francoism90, are you really sure you want to use zfs encryption as soon as it is released ? You want to beta test this ? I am interested in it too, but I will wait a little wait for it to get more stable before using it.

minextu commented on 2017-12-18 12:51

@francoism90 No, no yet. It might get included in zfs 0.8

francoism90 commented on 2017-12-18 12:46

Can someone please confirm if ZFS encryption now has been included in stable?

After the latest update ZFS didn't start on boot. I had to re-enable and now it's fine.

Working on it (,

It's because the patch for linux 4.14 hasn't made it into a stable release yet
