how do I know if I have the latest commits?

Postby e8vww » Tue Jan 30, 2018 7:14 am

I ran through the update process and it said Already up-to-date. Does this mean I have all the latest commits? Where is the version listed on github so I can compare?

As of Jan 30:
Code: Select all
spl.kext_version: 1.7.0-1-g9f0861d
zfs.kext_version: 1.7.0-15-g57da73121

The kext version string comes from:
Code: Select all
git describe
zfs-1.7.0-22-gcc3018b


Where I am "22" commits from the tag "1.7.0", and latest hash is "cc3018b". Not entirely sure where that "g" is from, but you just skip it.

So your loaded kext has everything up to and including:

Code: Select all
commit 57da731214fbf89543726eb147b2f25edeedb802
Author: Jorgen Lundman <lundman@lundman.net>
Date:   Thu Jan 25 14:21:41 2018 +0900

    Add support for schg, sappend in chflags.

I followed the instructions at https://openzfsonosx.org/wiki/Install#Upgrading_a_source_install and my kext versions are unchanged. Any idea what this could be caused by"?

Update: I had to uninstall and reinstall in order to update. Thanks to Brendon for pointing out this issue caused by switching from installer to self compiled versions.
