hello all, newbie here ...
i installed zfs via the demz-repo-core, with a pacman -S archzfs
now we have zfs-git.
so how should i "upgrade" ... do i remove zfs (and the demz-repo-core) then install zfs-git ?
your help is greatly appreciated

Have you tried doing “pacman -Syu”?
When demizer changed the package to zfs-git, he made an upgrade of archzfs automatically switch to zfs-git. I assume that should still be the case.
From what I read on aur-general, since the zfs on Linux project has trouble tracking the latest stable kernel with stable zfs releases, he has chosen to use zfs-git for the [core] linux package. I guess that means that the zfs package should now be used with the [core] linux-lts package.

For the [core] linux-lts package the OP would need to switch to “zfs-lts” as the archzfs package now no longer exists.
ok, thanks guys. i will pacman -Syu on the weekend, so i have some spare time in the event something breaks ... will report back
hello all, im having problems with pacman -Syu ... this is the log
> sudo pacman -Syu error: demz-repo-core: key "5E1ABF240EE7A126" is unknown :: Import PGP key 2048R/0EE7A126, "Jesus Alvarez <email@example.com>", created: 2012-10-24?

i tried removing demz-repo-core from /etc/pacman.conf, but then i get this
> sudo pacman -Syu :: Synchronizing package databases... core is up to date extra is up to date community is up to date :: Starting full system upgrade... resolving dependencies... looking for inter-conflicts... error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies) :: spl: requires linux=3.14-5 :: zfs: requires linux=3.14-5
The second error occurs because the “spl” and “zfs” packages are the old ones (so don't support the newer 3.14.4-1 kernel) and pacman can't find newer versions to upgrade to (because you removed the repository).
So, put the demz-repo-core repository back and try using pacman-key to add the key.
See https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pa … icial_keys and https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Un … -repo-core
Afterwards I also suggest using “pacman -Syyu” to update (note the double “y”, this forces a refresh of all packages)
thank you ukhippo, did just what you said .. and it all went fine !
