$ sudo pacman -Syu
:: Starting full system upgrade…
:: Replace linux58-headers with community/linux-latest-headers? [Y/n] n
question - i think that i have previously installed kernel/module with ZFS filesystem support (i think package “linux58-zfs”). Current one is 5.8.18-1-MANJARO. When i do pacman -Ss zfs i see:
community/linux-latest-zfs 5.10-1 (linux-latest-extramodules)
Kernel modules for the Zettabyte File System (metapackage)
which seem to be familiar to likely new kernel version. So i guess i do not need to worry about the upgrade and it should work out of the box or i install above mentioned zfs package and reboot? Are there any more commands to verify that zfs should work under new kernel? PS. and if OS fails to boot, what key is usually used to select older kernel pre-boot? I am having an LUKS (encrypted) OS.
UPDATE: pacman -Syu failed to keep zfs support, after proceeding to “Replace linux58-headers with community/linux-latest-headers” and finish the upgrade & reboot, i have seen:
The ZFS modules are not loaded.
Try running ‘/sbin/modprobe zfs’ as root to load them.
modprobe: FATAL: Module zfs not found in directory /lib/modules/5.10.2-2-MANJARO
$ pamac search zfs
$ pamac install linux-latest-zfs
$ sudo /sbin/modprobe zfs
OK it is working now…
it would be good if that pacman upgrade command would ask to keep zfs support or keep it automatically.
