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

Hi, I'm working on getting a set of patches upstream to the spl and zfs projects which would allow one to 'make arch' to build Arch Linux packages. This would allow an Arch Linux VM to be easily integrated into the ZFS Build Bot automated testing infrastructure just as is done for many other distributions. I wanted to run these patches by the community in hopes that you all could give me some feedback, here's a link to the spl and zfs branches with the PKGBUILD patches:

Must make a couple changed to kernel before this will work:

checking whether Linux was built with CONFIG_PREEMPT... yes << need to do these things.

Please change the configure line to contain "--libexecdir=/usr/lib/zfs". The /usr/libexec directory is only used by Red Hat/Fedora and its derivatives.

Here's the modified PKGBUILD:

@therp, that patch has some issues, the udev scripts reference /bin/bash which is not on the initcpio image.

There is a more complete patch at Which I am waiting for behlendorf to decide what to do with. (Since I include a patch to make z(fs|pool) work without an mtab. (See )

FYI has a patch with initcpio hooks for root on ZFS. Sorry it's diffed against zfs-behlendorf-git, but the two files should be easy to fish out.

I got issue with zfs.cache, after a while wondering + google i just created /etc/zfs folder and after recreating zpool everiting is fine now

@kylef: Tried it, but the Installer will install the rc.d script into the /etc/init.d/ directory.

@PhlowX, if you do `./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc` the installer will install the rc.d script, and some config files into etc. Currently they are being installed to /usr/etc as the prefix installs them there.

Added rc.d script, thanks kylef :-)

kylef commented on 2011-07-18 17:11

Btw, I have written a rc.d script for ifs, it is included in zfs-0.6.0-rc5.

This will mount and share all your pools on boot if you add it to your DAEMONS.
