https://bbs.archlinux.org – https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/ZFSand https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/In … nux_on_ZFSI followed the last guide (just to get zfs) but did not install it as root (yet). I did not need to change my kernel to install it (using standard x64 kernel). But you want a 64-bit system with ZFS.  Anyway when there was a new kernel version the pacman -Syu failed because of dependency of zfs to linux package. I had to uninstall the zfs and spl packages, remove zfs from mkinitcpio and rc.conf and generate new boot images, reboot, recompile and install zfs and spl again. Maybe not the easiest (HowTos)
