Crappy 6.2.8.arch1-1 kernel ... zfs pool gone

After updates 240323 the zfs pool went to /dev/null
kernel 6.2.8.arch1-1 was one of the updates including headers.

Anybody experiencing something like this. In 6.2.7 nothing like this.

Looks like the dkms module isn’t working with the latest kernel.

I avoid this by using the archzfs repo.

zfs currently does not compile for kernel 6.2.8 because this kernel started to hide some symbol from non-GPL modules.

While the zfs team is working on this topic and eventually fixing it with the next zfs release, you can use the workaround mentioned here by one user:

This is how I do it.


thanks … I was curious why this went wrong. I am familiar with the archzfs repo and cachyos.
I can agree on what you are saying about archzfs/ It avoids some irritation when you upgrade the kernel.

Thanks mbod this worked !
