ZFS on root in Virtualbox

I receive the following error when I give: mkinitcpio -p linux

"ERROR: Hook 'zfs' cannot be found"

I followed the instructions of the Arch wiki and I used the latest Arch iso.

Re: ZFS on root in Virtualbox

What is the output of `pacman -Qo /usr/lib/initcpio/install/` and what package did you install to provide the zfs hook?

Re: ZFS on root in Virtualbox

I had only installed zfs module in the archiso environment using: https://github.com/eoli3n/archiso-zfs
I did the same in the chroot environment and it worked fine.
The only thing that I noticed is the following:

zfs list
NAME                 USED  AVAIL     REFER  MOUNTPOINT
zroot               1.97G  31.0G       96K  none
zroot/ROOT          1.97G  31.0G       96K  none
zroot/ROOT/default  1.97G  31.0G     1.97G  /
zroot/data           252K  31.0G       96K  none
zroot/data/home      156K  31.0G      156K  /home


Is it normal to have no mountpoint?

pacman -Qo /usr/lib/initcpio/install/
/usr/lib/initcpio/install/ is owned by cryptsetup 2.6.0-1
/usr/lib/initcpio/install/ is owned by mkinitcpio 33-1
/usr/lib/initcpio/install/ is owned by systemd 252.2-2
/usr/lib/initcpio/install/ is owned by zfs-utils 2.1.6-2



pacman -Qs zfs

Re: ZFS on root in Virtualbox

Double check in the chroot the output of `pacman -Ql zfs-utils` contains /usr/lib/initcpio/hooks/zfs and /usr/lib/initcpio/install/zfs.
Also are you running mkinitcpio inside or outside the chroot?
Edit:
Also inside the chroot the output of `mkinitcpio -L`

Re: ZFS on root in Virtualbox

The problem is solved.

I hadn't installed zfs inside the chroot.

pacman -Ql zfs-utils contains the files you mentioned and mkinitcpio -L now contains zfs.

mkinitcpio -L                       
==> Available hooks
autodetect      hostdata        sd-encrypt      udev
base            keyboard        sd-shutdown     usr
block           keymap          sd-vconsole     zfs
consolefont     kms             shutdown        zfsencryptssh
encrypt         memdisk         sleep
filesystems     modconf         strip
fsck            resume          systemd
